Drove a 2001 E350 super duty with a 4 inch lift, some kind of aftermarket wheels and tires, an obnoxiously massive exhaust, and a powertuner for work for several years. I miss it even though I don't do that type of work anymore and really don't need anything that big. It's ridiculousness was also what made it so freaking awesome. lol

Yea I bought mine used for like $1200. I think it was made by Weldtec or something like that. It was a really nice kit, just a little overkill for what I needed.

I finished ahead of two cars. Imagine how those two guys felt afterwards, losing to a minivan?

Respect the van!

check out my old van. my dad bought it new in the 70s and was handed down to me. i learned how to drive stick in this thing. it had no windows and a 3 on the tree gearbox. it needed a new engine and i didnt want to spend cash on a new crate engine because it got terrible gas mileage. so i sold it to one of our employees and he totaled it.
