So, I traded in my subaru STI on this 05 PSD with 25,000 miles, and have been lurking for a few days before announcing my noob candidacy. I have a house at Lake Nacimiento, and have a few boats that I was towing with my
V8 4 runner. Just recently bought a 24 foot pontoon boat, took her down the ramp, made the Uturn to go back up, and the boat felt like it was going to flip my little 4 runner over on it's side. That was scenario one that made me start thinking about a larger truck, scenario 2: I get the boat out of the water, and take it back to the house to put it under the awning, as it has to be covered while it is parked at the house except between labor day and memorial day. The width of my awning is 9'-3", the beam on my pontoon is 8'-6", so you could imagine how difficult that was backing in with a car that you can't see the sides of the boat, much less the sides of the house. So, here I am, powerstroke heavy. It's got a small lift, not sure how big, maybe 4 inches, and 18" Mazzi Hulk wheels, sorry, I don't have the size of the tires with me. I guess it's a XLT sport model, all RED, and I mean ALL RED, bumpers, grill, body panels, everything, looks like a pimped out fire truck. No other mod's that I can see, but I think I'm not gonna to get too crazy with it, maybe exhaust, chip, and intake, would be about as far as I go with it. I was pushing a good amount of HP/TQ to the wheels of the STI, and I don't want to go down that money pit road again, as it's long, and not as fruitful as you think when you first start. Sorry for the long read, and I guess...
