35s on 17s look good, that's what my setup is. Good to see another sclb 2nd gen

i've only owned regular cabs, i dont like short beds and a long bed with anything else is too long.

I used to have a pretty customized short bed 3rd gen up until mid january. I had owned it since i was 15 and put ALOT into it. I like short beds on 2wd street trucks but a 4x4 definitely needs to be longer

agreed, it just looks out of porportion with a short bed up high. i've had my hands on a couple street trucks but i like the mud too much. that and power can be made in anything with decent cubes.

Hey man, sorry I am just now getting in here. Take care of that truck. I can guarantee that selling it will be a regrettable moment later. Sounds like you've got some great plans for it though!

Welcome to ORC! I haven't seen too many V-10s. Definitely something worth hanging on to.

yeah the 8.0's are a semi rare engine, it only had a 10 year run and without it the viper might not of been. the way i see it the muscle truck craze is gonna take off in the next 20 years or so and it will appriciate in value. that and a 10 cylender symphany sounds O so badass
