    Thanks to Rick and all the moderators who make this such a fantastic site ;)

    In case you're slow (or just don't want to read the entire thread) Blackjack was totaled by foreign POS mother #$@%er who didn't know how to yield on November 14, 2007. He rolled into a gas station parking lot and his body was crushed, but he saved my life in the process. In return for that, I've saved everything that I could scavenge so I can save HIS life. He has a CHP 347, rebuilt 4r70w with Baumann shift kit, Ford Racing BD-11 supercharger kit, and a RideTech parallel four link all waiting for installation :) Here's his original thread post:

    Blackjack: Born February 16,1998 in Louisville, Ky. Rescued from Koons Chevy March 20-something, 2000 with 33,333 miles on the Odometer. Couldn't think of any good names and then I heard 'Blackjack' while listening to Brooks and Dunn's Boot Scootin' Boogie. He's been 'Jack' or "f#%^&$ pain in my @$$!" since then. His favorite hobbies are eating money and hunting Blazers, and he enjoys playing pranks (dropping hood on my head, chewing on his power steering rack, mystery squeaks, randomly starting himself up, etc).

    All factory options, including 4.0 SOHC, limited slip diff, 4:10 gears, skidplates (on ExplornJ's truck now), sunroof, cass/cd player and changer, leather, blah blah.

    Exterior mods:
    ~Ford Platinum color racing stripes (2 10" stripes, 2" space)
    ~Ventshades
    ~Lund Windjammer (painted to match)
    ~Sport Truck dual fog/driving (SMURF LIGHTS)
    ~Black Euro III Altezzas w/ cut up slotted tail covers
    ~20% Tinted Windows all around
    ~Doetsch Tech Nitro Slammer shocks
    ~Hella LED sidemarkers
    ~GT emblem from a 94-98 Mustang
    ~Explorer Express Rear sway bar
    ~Truck performance front sway bar bushings
    ~Diamond clear headlights and corners w/ blue chrome bulbs
    ~Shortened EB (running board delete option) side skirts

    Interior mods:
    ~Aluminum dash kit by Exotic Wood dash
    ~Pioneer DEH CD head unit
    ~Pioneer 6 disk CD changer
    ~1 pair Pioneer 3ways up front
    ~1 pair Pioneer 2ways in rear
    ~2 JL Audio 10w6's in a custom box (replaced with 2 Kicker Vcomp's, thanks for blowing my subs, Meatball :fire: )
    ~1 Kenwood 729 S amp
    ~1 pair Pioneer 1" dome tweeters in B pillars
    ~1 pair Pioneer 3/4" Tweeters in front doors
    ~Custom MMRUSA "Sport GT" silver/white gauge faces
    ~Carbon fiber dash bezel
    ~Cold Cathode Blue neons

    Engine mods:
    ~Valet Remote start/ custom alarm
    ~KKM
    ~Flowmaster 50 single straightback
    ~Taylor Spiro Sparkplug wires

    Wheels and tires:
    ~Foose Nitrous 20x8 and 20x10, grey
    ~Toyo Proxes 255/50 and 295/45
    ~1/2" aluminum front spacers w/ extended lugs


    The kinda sorta mods:
    ~lowered approximately 2" via TT and monoleaf block flip
    ~Brown wire mod, full 2wd hi/low (Yanked the front 4x4 in 2006, the hell with that mod :D)
    ~Throttle cable zipties
    ~Chopped front bumpstops
    ~Mr. Bat (gave up on replacing blown hood shocks. It's a Das Frem thing, you wouldn't understand)

    I run Mobil 1 Synthetic 5w30 and only use Ford filters (Fram ones sometimes knock)

    Guestimated 215-220 Horsepower when he was younger, 15.5 seconds 1/4 mile at Cecil County Dragway.

    The stripes on the roof and bugshield are vinyl (and carefully cut to fit around the roofrack rails), but the rest is all factory platinum paint..
