You don't need no stickin heater, the last two trucks I have driven had no heater. They are just plain overrated anyway. Start cutting thats what I did to my pig:-) If you don't need it cut it off:-)

If you cut off more than 200lbs I'll be impressed..

Personally I think me going on a diet is the best way for my cruiser to loose weight

Kate and her impending diet

OK, simple question, but, I think it needs to be asked, at least to appease my mind.....

Why?

Gravity kills you when you weigh nearly 2 tons.

A lot of my wheeling is extreme hill climbing and the light rigs hand me my ass constantly.

This rig will never be light, but there are some things I can do to help the situation.

5K is too heavy for a vehicle the size of Kate.

Plus, I need a project

I am not ready to start on the FJ-45 yet.

Here are some steps you should follow to lose alot of weight...

Step 1: Replace LT1 with aluminum 4cylinder(giving me the LT1)
Step 2: Replace rollcage with pvc pipe(giving me the old rollcage)
Step 3: Replace 42'' TSL's with 35'' BFG's(we can trade)

See its not so hard...we can also work out something for the atlas, maybe trade that for my old course spline birfs...their collector edition

If you need to delay the 45, I've got a trailer and we could permenantly delay it a little more to the North Texas area.

Don't make me try to go and find it. Actually, I think that 've got my 4wd Suburban traded for aan 88 Toyota p/u, so my wife would kill me if I brought something else home. I've only got 6 vehicle right now.

I was pretty close today, We had to go to Kilgore for a funeral. I thought that I sensed a presence when we passed through the metromess. Maybe I was getting near. Or maybe it was just road rage. I feel for those guys who have to put up with that traffic everyday.

I was going to make a funny comment..... but no way would I ever insult Butch's MOM!

Nolan... you want something like... go spend a few weeks reading www.rvproject.com Love the comments "few holes here, save 50 grams... it all adds up!

BUMMER -- Buyers for my house have backed out. DAMN, I just want to sell the sucker so I can get moving along with the shop. This double mortgage payment is killing me....
