oh yeah you got boned on all the chrome crap. theres a truck just like yours prob the newer year or 2 but it has the black mirrors and no chrome above the wheel-archs.

Fooled me on that one.
Thanks for the info on the intake. Guess GM did it right by taking out the divider.

Half-assed photoshop skills FTW! haha That same pic (original) is earlier in the thread too.

MPB, the GM intake design sucked: two holes in the intake the same size as the throttle bores (that's why a spacer linking the two bores adds considerable power.)

Ok Jon, if you have some snows lined up nvm. I think Tiffany is nuts not to be using mine on her Sube anyway. Goodyear Ultra-Grips with studs. Even though it was one-wheel-peel that Z never got stuck anywhere. http://www.motortopia.com/files/141/alb ... 0_4411.jpg

What the hell was I talking about in that last post? I was trying to get something on Ebay and did a quick mindless post. Ok, now if your talking about the pressure waves in the intake coming together I can kind of grasp that. What was making it seem so strange to me was that the fuel cone that comes out of the injectors would pass that gap.

Amy has a set of aggressive snows for her subi this year too... I only put them on if it's going to snow then I put her other tires back on once the roads are clear. The only issue I have is I'll have 4 tires, but only two extra rims...

Anyone have 2 black GTZ rims? :)


Ok enough off topic.

Even with your photo looking the same thats not a dead give away... you are very notorious for going to exactly the same locations to get pics! ;)

Good point, I forgot you guys are like covered with that right now. We got a little a while ago, but there isn't anything left but plow piles.

hahahha You are clueless.

The tires are 285/75R16s so they're just under 33". 1" taller than stock. No lift or any of that BS required. I emailed the guy again to make sure they are load range E for towing, but I havent been able to find them new online anything but E.

The wheels will stick out about 1" further than stock. There is room under the fenders, but if it looks stupid I'll get a set of flares. They actually look pretty good on a 4x4.

Clueless? How do you figure?

Just because I don't get the whole "Gotta have a 4x4 truck with knobby tires to be a man" thing that so many guys have going on? And driving a pink car must be gay.

This is the first truck I've ever had and I don't consider it needed to be a man. I was born with plenty of that.. no need for compensation. That's all I'm sayin. hahaha

Is nitrous your compensation? :P
