Nice looking bowtie...def not my thing though.

20 days??? Looks like you had already put a decent amount of dough into the GTS, or did the wheels already come with? What freeway is that on?

4" BL?? where did you get that? And what model wheels are on your truck? Hard to tell.

That eclipe looked really clean, such a shame to see it wrecked.

And x2 on details about the 4" body lift, I've never heard of one for Rangers... are you sure it's not a 3" body lift?

yikes...... were either of you hurt?? looks as if someone hit the windshield... I always joke with my friend who lives there about the "crazy california drivers" but its not just there, people don't pay attention when they're driving anywhere these days....

But that was a nice looking eclipse - sorry you got it wrecked... And I love the chevy truck... But they're defiantely not known for fuel economy.... haha.. enjoy the ranger... they're sweet little trucks...

haha yeah by the time my chevy was all built and done I was getting about 8 mpg and had to put in 93 octane only haha

my eclipse was sick haha, super clean, had a nice suspension on it, loved how it handled..or did haha. Neither of us got hurt to badly. We're both young, I bounced back within 3 days haha, but we're both seeing a chiro to be on the safe side

and the ranger has a 4" BL, it was installed by Trick Trucks El Cajon in El Cajon, CA. that's as much as I know haha

You're seeing a chiropractor now? How recent was the accident and when did you get the Truck? And I'm still curious about that 4" body lift... I wonder if they simply installed a 3" body lift, cranked the torsion bars 1" and called it a 4" lift.

Not trying to bash or anything, but it's def a 3" body lift. Not 4".
