SmokeyD,

We are currently renting out a house from one of our realtives so renters insurance wont cover it. We are in the proccess of looking for a new home. But, with the econmy is right now my parents are a little worried about buying a home.

I am only 17, so my parents didnt want to have full coverage on it because it was only a 5k truck

I think I would put tires on it and call it good, the damage isn't hurting anything fill in those scratches with a little touch up paint and keep rockin out.

yeah its a slick truck with a little paint on it, rather than getting a new truck i would slap a cheap lift on it and bigger tires second hand maybe and drive it till the wheels fall off or find someone that wants to give you more than what you have in it then upgrade

How could you miss your flareside? I hate mine with a passion.

Where can i get a cheap lift and big tires how much would something like that run to have someone do it for you?

Sorry, for my truck not being a disel. My dad has a psd tho that is why i joined psdorg.

And, how would a flareside look jacked up?

I always liked the looks of a flareside behind a regular cab, and I didn't feel I really lost all that much bed space with it. Plus the truck was fun to drive though I did have a 4.6L and a 5 spd, which I guess not having a 6spd is the biggest regret with my current truck.

IMHO the flaresides look sweet lifted.

How would a couple grand be more exspensive than a new truck? Who thinks like that? To get a truck nicer than that one you are looking at spending at least $10,000.00.
