You'd better rest and take it easy, what with that sore neck and back.

I wouldn't say you can always 'replace' a vehicle...

You can always SUBSTITUTE a vehicle...some just can't be replaced.

lol damn it hasn't been one day yet and vultures are already to start picking apart the truck :jester:
ouch! I don't like being called a vulture, makes it seem like I'm being a jerk or something. I wasn't trying to be, and apologize if I came across that way. I've been trying to economically upgrade my 98's brakes to the 03/04 brakes, but finding parts trucks are damn near impossible.

Have you checked with viperkota? He upgraded his to Viper brakes and I knew he had some brake parts left over or he did.

yea, awhile back. he wanted like $400 for his stuff. it was a bit more than I wanted to pay. I think he's sold off most of it since then anyway

I wasn't sure if you were joking or annoyed that I was asking about parts already!:jester:

"vulture" to me conjures up images of some greedy, foaming at the mouth, "I don't give a shit about you, your truck or your plans, I just want my parts" savage who can't wait for you to strip it down... I was like..."hey! that's not me!"

anyway...when you get it back, IF you decide to part it out, let me know. I see the parts on E-bay now and then, they either want an ass load of money for the parts or they want to rip you off on shipping...I wanna upgrade my brakes, but not at their prices! for that much money, I'll buy my own rotors and calipers and make my old spindles work!
