He also said he lifted it after racing it.

Pretty sure hes saying it ran 9's on 33" slicks BEFORE he gayed it up. Either way, I'd like to see slips.

a diesel pickup on 33" slicks is well on it's way to being gayed up imo.

I think most are getting blown up, wrecked, or rotted out, and the bro-dozer owners can afford to repair them.

They are getting traded in when the $1000 set of tires that Dad bought are worn out in a year and the high schoolers can't afford to buy another set.

No lie. The last set of 285/70R17 tires I bought were well over $1500.

I passed one yesterday heading east up Vail Pass on I70. POS Ferd with at least a 10" lift was limping along way under the speed limit. I laughed.

There was a guy I ran into years ago at the San Antonio raceway that had a 2001 or so lifted Superduty on 4 massive drag radials. Truck had a 7.3 with fire rings and a nitrous system that would drain the bottle in one pass. Guy surprised everyone when he ran a 12 second quarter mile time, which in 2004 was fast as fuck for a heavy diesel crew cab 4x4 pickup.

No fucking way I believe one ran 9s. Building a 7.3 to handle that just doesn't happen often.

That pic won't convince you, but there are actually many places in the TX hill country that look just like southern CA. It is the most similar climate to the hill country in the US.

Before bad ranching practices and fire suppression changed a lot of it over 100 years ago, the area was almost entirely rolling hills of grass with very little cedar or oaks, and not the populated oak savannah that people strive for when they get around to clearing all the cedar out these days.

no sense arguing with Gary, he drove through Texas for a day 25 years ago so he's incredibly qualified to pass judgement on the state
