yeah I know. but now that I'm kinda over the whole "mudding thing" im gonna go with a less aggressive tire I think but that still performs. like the milder mickey thompsons or BFGs. not sure. gonna run these federals into the ground first. won't take long.

mudding was fun, taking people out..i really do it for my friends i came to realize. now that we've hit all the spots, and ive taken everyone i know. it's not appealing anymore. nevermind the shit you break and how crappy my paint and shit looks now.

it might be different if i had other friends with trucks that would go out with me...but i don't. so i can go hit the big stuff because if i get stuck im screwed. I won't have Candy08 there to pull me out again

OH! I saw his truck on 95 the other day. he sold it and got that F350 and moved to Arkansas. But i saw it.

Ya I saw somewhere that you said he got an F350 and sold his rig.. Sad day

And I understand that completely with mudding and breaking shit.. I really only go the odd time to actually go mudding but the tires are great for if I happen to go to a muddy as heel scrap yard or yesterday I had to pick my bro up from paintball in a muddy as hell corn field where little cars got stuck. My next set of tires will prob not be as intense, love the look and ability of these.. Amazing tires, but as much as I try to justify needing them.. I really only do some messing round mudding 2-3 times a month if I find a random cool spot to ripp round in for 10-20 mins

I approve of both these statements!!

Kyle, what are you looking at getting for your next truck?

Brandon, have you thought about colour matching your whole front bumper? I'm thinking that would look really good on your truck. Especially with the new wheels and tires you have on there. Then either leave the grille black or colour match it as well. It would be a sick looking set up IMO.

not sure man. I really like the idea of a ram 2500, just because i think they are the absolute best looking lifted trucks out there.

might play around with the idea of going back to a Ford, F250 maybe. say what you want.

it's kind of far off for right now. still have 3.5 years to pay my 2007 off. then about that time my little bro will just be starting to drive so I'll give it to him.

or maybe if I swing a decent job out of this internship then ill trade her in. i just really don't know. It's going to be tough for sure.

i know it's going to be white or gray. no more of this dark blue bullshit, horrible color to keep looking good.

I'm assuming 4th gen 2500? If so then yes, I fully agree that the 4th gen heavy duty trucks looks absolutely mean lifted. I can't wait to get mine there.

I'll pretend that you didn't mention anything about Ford.... lol

Sweet man, that time will go buy pretty quick. Plus it will give you some good time to really plan out what you want. And by then there might be 5th gen Rams out there that you can get in to!

I know what you mean about the darker colour too. Although my 3500 is still Mineral Grey which is somewhat dark it's 100 times better to have than black. Very happy with that colour choice so far!

yeah that's another thing. by the time i get a new truck, they'll be lots of things to consider, esp with a new gen out (im sure there will be). esp with the way diesels are going.

i do love big megacabs 3rd gens lifted though too, but by the time I'm getting a new one, getting a 3rd gen wouldn't make sense.

it'll probably definitely almost for sure most likely be a diesel, because as soon as i can afford a boat I'm getting one. ill definitely have a get around car like i do now.

it's all up in the air at this point!


also, I'm not a fan of these newer trucks and all this electronic bullcrap in them. seems like more stuff to break. I'd love to stick with 3rd gens forever if i could get one new lol.

2012 2500 would be my dream so I don't have to deal with all the new bs they got. A sierra 2500 hd Denali would be a sweet truck but only if I struck it rich and could afford it and a ram lmao.

Yeah I like to myself I am rich too. but then I realize I have to set apart a few grand for a year of school, and have money aside for insurance and gas seeing as during the school year I only work 1 week day and sometimes weekends, plus the odd scrap run.. So gotta save where I can.. I see all this money come flying in and then realize that it is already going aside and then look and see I can afford to buy an air freshener and that is about all.. I bought my truck up front so I do not have to worry about that spending thank god. And I wish I had a hunting gear to spend money on and guns lol. I got my girlfriend.. So there goes that money

I have thought about the whole colour match.. Seen a bunch of silver 3rd gen rams around my city with painted bumpers and they look sweet, just don't think I would want to fork out the cash for it. the one thing I like about my black plasti-dipp is that it does a great job protecting my steel bumpers so if I ever sold the truck and removed it all, they would look brand new still. And I am liking the whole silver and black I am going with right now. Down the road I may get bored and change it al up, but who knows.

Dark colours look awesome.. But require more cleaning then driving .. 1 reason I love silver is that it just always looks clean except when muddy or hadn't been washed in a long long time.

And boo to Ford .. Other then a king ranch because they are nice.. I have an 08 F350 single cab long box 4x4 offroad with a 6.4L powerstroke.. Truck has had some pain in the ass problems and feels underpowered for a diesel. It does haul everything we hook up to it though. Actually it is easier to drive it with a heavy trailer hooked up over no load... No load feels like your driving a lumber truck through a field.
