i am very glad to see you now following this trend. i just recall seeing this in a diesel book or truckin mag maybe, then noticing it spur out of control.....like i said tho, i mean some of these trucks are very very nice, with some big money in them, then they do this, errrrr. reminds me of someone buying a v-6 mustang then swapping cobra bumpers, hood, interior, drivetrain, and motor........lol it just leaves me scratching my head!!!
