About “1 wild truck”

i bought this truck seven yrs ago was a drag truck at one time still have the same motor that in it that i run today sometimes it scares me when i have the urge to get on it.

About “daily driver”

Has a strong runnin 5.2 V8 Magum engine in it. I have it running right around 300 horse. It has a 5 speed manual tranny. Its hard to find newer manual trucks, but its what I wanted. Wouldn't ask for anything else. I put a 3'' cat back Magnaflow exhaust on it and performance tuneup with bosch platinum 2's. Aem Brute Force cold air induction, Air Aid throttle body pacer on it. Ive also installed a performance clutch kit. Truck right now around 300 horse, but I plan on breaking that someday with a powerdyne supercharger when I can afford it. Im also planning on addin a MSD ignition system and performance ECU. I Have 18'' aluminum mag wheels and Toyo Proxe STS performance street tiress on my truck right now. They are some of the meanest and have the most grip in a street tire that I have ever driven.
