because everyone on this site has influenced me to make it higher, more powerful, and economical. Plus i can't have something stock, it always has to change.

Because somebody has to make all the boys jealous...

Nah,seriously...It's not much fun to walk through a mud pit and once you get the idea that tonka trucks are the norm when you're 3..It sticks.
Mods are more fun than stock!

my f150 as a cool pavement pounder daily driver to pull a trailer with so pretty close to stock as possible, my ranger as a trail riding truck that i can drive too and from the trail and still use as a daily driver and its getting solid axles, s10 as a full built truggy i can rockcrawl, mud run, and do other extreme stuff with getting leafs and solid axles and stripped of pretty much all non-essential sheetmetal.

I'd been enamored by big trucks since I was 5...then after lifting mine at 16, I started running trails and it gave me a reason to make it better and more functional...now it's just an addiction and a hobby. so then I found another project to build strictly for wheeling and pushed me to build the dodge into more of a tow rig...the rest is history.

Oh and the complimentary sex fits in there nicely somewhere too... :D:

At first, I wanted a big, loud truck like every other redneck kid in the world. Then I started learning about what I was doing... and after a couple of years, my focus switched from a cool looking truck to a very capable daily driver. After I started running big bias ply Swampers, I knew I needed something else to drive daily so I could build up the truck for offroad only and not rely on it for highway transportation. Now it's a toy... I love working on rigs, so owning a Dodge comes naturally. I always have something to do. I don't drink, don't smoke, don't do anything except spend my money on 4x4's. Now I'm totally engulfed by the offroad sport and I live it and breathe it every single day.
Now the goal for my Dodge is to be the ultimate "go anywhere" Ram, built for "whatever." Rocks, mud, vehicle recovery, emergency a$$istance, "whatever." I want to get in it and know that I can go anywhere I need to go without worry.
The Jeep is just a crawler, built for trails and rocks. I have no intention of putting it on the road so my only focus with it is how it runs in 4 low, I don't care about anything else.

to go where not many t-100's have.. I have seen some sas'd and tricked out but the plans for the wide body taco (as i call it ) should be able to take me to work and back and if i decide to hit a trail in the mountains or run through a mudhole.. It'll take me to work the next day ...

Because I can't leave well enough alone. If I own it, it gets modified. Because I'm still a child inside, and kids like big trucks. Because I built a big truck like any redneck would want to, then one day decided to actually take it off-road and got hooked instantly. It's noa a hobby, or moreso a passion, and even though there aint {expletive} for trails here, I want the most capable truck around haha.
