Wow. You're not even gonna drive it to school like that so people won't think it's a TOTAL street queen? :p Do you think I'll sling much mud with 37x12.50 Creepy Crawlers on 15x8s? Oh yeah, and full width axles :D
 






that's sick man
 






very nice truck man
 






that is a bad rig man
 












Some more pics..

Dont worry bout the ugly box, if i keep the truck much longer ima build a custom box with tan carpet or vynle prolly, dont want to build a box though and than turn around and have my truck sold, and the person not want the system..

Good lord Caleb, you're a vehicle *****. Just get one and be satisfied with it! You just spent probably 2 grand or more on that thing!

agreed.

plus, why would you want a chevy? Dude, that thing is sick! Keep it and show it off.
 












how much are you asking
 






Guys, don't worry...I've already b*tched at him about selling this thing. I doubt he'll really do it though. The main reason he was wanting to sell it is because it's 2wd obviously, and I guess he misses his Heep on 38s w/ locked rear and l/s front. The funny thing about all of this is that he bought this, because he wanted something "nice" w/ A/C, etc. Now that he has something "nice", he misses having the Heep where he would always have something to do with it (I guess stuff broke a lot so he had to do a lot of fixing? :p)

I don't remember the price he said he was asking, but it would probably be tough to sell a 2wd. In FL, the land of huge mud holes, where he has neighbor's with F250's on 49" IROKs, 2wd isn't really the best thing to have. If he does sell it though, I hope he actually gets something he wants (4x4) and keeps the damn thing. :D
 






ohh well if you change your mind my dad would like to sell his 98 4dr yukon 4x4, but i think he wants top dollar lol, well go thing you arent sellin it because you have one of the nicest 2nd gen 2wds!
 






Never knew how loud my system was, nor how cool a jacked up Explorer was till tonight, I let me friend drive it so i could drive his 'maro. Man that thing looked sweet rolling down the road... :D
 






Hell yeah. :cool: My buddy was pulling my jet ski out of the lake with my truck, and I realized the same thing. They look way more kickass when in motion!

So you're gonna keep it right? ;)

I like the work you put into that but don't like the wheels. Very skinny looking and top heavy rig. Go with 15x10's. Also, that much truck should be 4 wheel drive. Nice truck.
