My s10 is more than capable of doing truck stuff...

In other news...

The t56 / lt1 is out of the trans am.

That's f'ing cool... I've always thought about using a Crown Victoria to use for a truck foundation. How does it drive?

Are the zq8 components an up grade over the base model S10?

Zq8 is the factory handling package offered on the 2nd gen s10's. They come with a quicker steering box, sway bars front and rear and lower stiffer springs.

I have a ZQ8 rear sway in my scrap pile if anyone wants it, it's rusty but not damaged, free for pickup in southeastern PA or just pay for the shipping.

I have a decently nice ZQ8 S10 but it's outside the budget.

However, i got my Rampage running well enough to go up and down the street, and i got a line on some front coilovers for handling (the ones already on it are purely for slammage). And the 225/45/15s I ran on my Caravan last year will fit on it. Not much assembly required...

And hey look my 09 Challenge car and my 13 Challenge car where my teammates all backed out and i didn't go are in there. And the front of that s10.

I have an old tonneau that has it's Velcro separated from a short bed f150.

I saw a pickup truck liner on the side of the road and almost turned around to pick it up last night.

Also trying to figure out how to put the nitrous bottle in place if I have a riveted on tonneau cover.

In reply to Andy Neuman:

You can rivet on snaps? They should rivet to the car and then they are two piece you hammer together on the tonneau side. Should be too expensive for a pack of hundreds on the internet.

Bad Mother Trucker may have just munched the NV3500. I guess that's the issue with a glass transmission behind a 454.
