Ivan, hows it going man?! Its been awhile since I have been on here....Sorry to hear you also got rid of your truck. Looked like you had it up pretty nice at the end.
It also looks like me and you both went away from Ford after we got rid of our F150's...haha. I got an 08 Mustang GT and did a bunch of stuff too it but then realized I just hate cars and am not a car guy. It was fun to drive but attracted too many stupid kids (funny, cuz im still only 26) trying to race and it also wasnt practical in the snow (ya know, that white stuff you southerners never see..haha). Well anyways, about a month ago I had to get back into a truck and decided on a 2014 Ram 1500 5.7. I love the thing. The interior isnt as nice as the F150 but the ride is smooth and holy hell does it have power with the 400hp Hemi. I also have the 8-speed tranny and 3.92 gear ratio. For the first 1000 miles I have had it, I have been getting 20mpg combined.
The mpg has now gone back down to Ford territory as last weekend I lifted it and put 37's on it. I just couldnt stay away from the lifted trucks. Suits me better. I feel like it fits my 6'6 frame better too than the Stang did....
Here she is...not a great pic but all I gotta say is it is MASSIVE.
It is higher than my 8" BDS kit was on the F150. On the Ram, I have a 6" Zone with Bilsteins set at 2.8". 37x13.5 Toyo's with 18x10 Fuel Trophy's.
I hope you enjoy your new Chevy as I know I will enjoy my new Ram. I still believe Ford is the working mans truck but I dont regret getting my Ram at all.
Anyways, I just wanted to share the update and wish you luck in your next build. I'll try to remember to check in and see how yours goes. Im sure you are already part of a Chevy forum as I am part of the Ramforumz but I noticed it doesnt get nearly the traffic this one got and I am sure gets on a daily basis.
