2k miles and 3 months...check in..

Hey guys I havent been on in awhile...but its 2k miles and about 3 months since I got her.


Well it has really opened up at the 2k mile mark...honestly very more aggressive and responsive and even the exhaust is gurggling more.

im very pleased with her, its truly a beast ..not a day goes buy that I dont get approached and asked about the truck.

I drove it in track mode a few times and its a lil bouncy for NYC streets but you deff feel the difference. I normally cruise @ 120 easy and feels amazing.

Granted its not the fastest auto on the road...BUT noting has beaten mine yet.....Im not talking race track stuff...just lil light to light show offs.

This weekend ill change the oil.

Im a hard guy to please and I get bored veryyy fast...I must say im still loving this truck!

DEFFF WORTH 57K I paid absolutly no doubt.
the build quality is top notch and trust me I beet the FKN piss out of it. I commute every day to Manhattan with her constantly gunning her

Nice to hear that you love her. Maybe one day while on my way to work I'll see you at a light and we can go for it...

I'm at 2228 miles, it does pull harder, today in Chicago its 9 degrees and falling.This truck loves cold air which makes me enjoy this weather for the free power gain.

If it's anything like the 5.7 trucks, the tune changes after a certain amount of mileage.

Nice update. I love the sound coming from the engine bay and the exhaust already, I'll love to hear it get a little throatier.
