Default New Truck?

Went from a Tahoe to a Hummer just a month or so ago but it is feeling kinda small already. What say ye on a truck? (BTW, the wife is scared that I am actually going buy it)

Needs bigger tanks. Also probably a new motor if it has a 3116 in it.

Plus a lift and bigger tires. Just went by the office and it's sitting about two blocks away. Don't know a damned thing about it but I think a Freightliner would be more practical.

That's why I am thinking about a lift. It's really a bit misleading. The pavement is slanted pretty good.

I didn't either until about a month ago. Mid life crisis is a bitch.

Either the engine is missing or the shocks are blown.

I seriously Doubt that anyone that can afford one of these will not use it properly. An investor I work with in Miami bought one of the Portal axle versions. I tried to talk him into meeting me in Big Cypress to run a trail. He nearly shit himself..... It never happened.

Ive seen a bunch of them when my wife worked in Louisville for a year. Something doesn’t look right with that truck.

Amiri king has had a funny video on the lowered rear end trucks. Search PT trolls
