I love it Gabe. I should get s*it for that. The MGW is an awesome piece. I want my GHIG Roush shiftball installed on top of it as well.

I have June 12th off as a vacation day, so it will be installed that day.
Today, I am going to detail the interior of the truck so it's sparkling clean, which shouldn't be too long, and put the new floorliners in so it will keep the truck carpet cleaner than the stock mats. After I do bodybuilding. laundry and some other little things.
(I gotta be honest though, I do like the look of the stock mats better than the WeatherTech floorliners, but I only bought the floorliners so it would keep the carpeted areas clean/neat.)

Got my muffler installed today.
Sounds killer!! I'm really digging it. Had the windows up and A/C while driving and it's loud, especially at start up and from a stop. I haven't gotten on it yet, but when Mike took it for a quick ride to make sure all was well after the install, I could hear him got on it a little as he drove away. Sounded killer and loud.
He smiled when he came back. He likes it. LOL

So now,............I'm considering the Ground Force 2/3 kit. Looks killer with the regular cabs. If I had a quad or extended cab, I would definitely do a lift, but regular cabs don't look good with a lift in my opinion. Sucks that this stuff is expensive. We'll see.

Here's the look I'm going for,.......

I'm seriously thinking about it Burton. If we didn't live in a climate where we had a snowy winter I would in a heartbeat!! Actually,....I'd own a brand new Dodge Charger Hellcat instead of the truck as my daily driver!! lol (I'd keep the Roush as the toy.)
It's a 2" front drop and 3" rear drop, hence the 2/3 drop. (Obviously, right?!?) Made by Ground Force as well. Looks killer. I really love that look. Or, I could just lower the rear. Not sure yet.
BUT,..............the truck does sound mighty nice now. I cringe every morning when I have to fire it up at 6am going to work. It's stupid loud at cold start. LOL


I'm like this,......................

Just my two cents here but I never understood why people lower a 4x4. Kinda defeats the purpose if you ask me.

Same here.
I leveled my '06 Tundra, it sits almost perfect, 32" tires on it, love the height and ground clearance.

Leveling the Ram and throwing some meaty tires on it would look awesome.

I leveled my '01 Ranger and threw 32's on it too:



In the summer I had a different set of wheels and tires, and I still can't believe how good that little truck looked (I had also done mods to the grille & headlights, and I installed color-matched painted fender flares and front bumper valance):

Looks better lowered than lifted on a regular cab truck. Do a Google search and you will see what I mean. I think it's ugly. lol ESPECIALLY on a regular cab. I hate the lifted look on a regular cab.

Mailed out another payment on Monday. No payment due till the end of March, 2018. I'm trying to get ahead by one year, but it's kicking my ***! lol


****(I almost inquired about a GORGEOUS 2013 Shelby GT500 last weekend. Super clean, one owner, all stock car. Only 5,800 miles. **ALMOST! Thought about it long and hard and my brain won over my heart. lol )
There's actually 2 others that I have been hawking bad and wouldn't mind inquiring about. All under 5,000 miles.

Sending off another payment off tomorrow morning. No payment due till the end of May, 2018.

***Still haven't ordered the rear 2" drop springs for my truck yet. I'm kind of holding off at the moment. Been thinking/soul searching about some things.

Neither. lol
I would get the Hellcat before the Camaro. I like the Camaro, but the rear end and interior kind of kill it for me. Plus, in all honesty, I LOVE the Mustang community and all the available parts/mods for the Mustangs. It's pretty amazing.
I might just pay off the truck ASAP and start saving big $$$ into the savings account every month like I did years ago. (Of course I say this now,........but we'll see! )

***For those that are thinking about the ceramic coatings on your car, DO IT!! We got rain in this area today and my truck was the ONLY vehicle within eyesight, (as I park all by my lonesome away from others, but not too far away), that still had water beading on the paint. As I drove out of the industrial park that I work in, I only saw one other vehicle that had water beading as well, a newer Audi A6. Money well spent if you are thinking about doing it. I know others on the other forum have been wondering about it and asking.
