Borla exhaust on the Ram and a K&N conical replacement airbox/filter... keep kicking around doing a port job on the heads and throwing a procharger on it. Not sure I wanna risk the reliability but will probably end up doing it at some point.

3 broken exhaust manifold bolts on the old GM. 2500hd 6.0. 2 on the right 1 on the left.

Any value to shorty headers on this application?
Wouldn't mind doing a mild tune and Black Bear tuning seems to come up in the GMC forums on a regular basis.

Not looking to lose low end.

And I have augered a bit through my finger trung to drill a nail blood blister out.

Yup. Right through. Owwwwch is a understatement.

Hot pin next time for me. My buddy used a hot drywall screw. He twisted it in like a bit untill it let the pressure off.

Yuk either way.


Heelys kid is awsome. Love watching the young guns rip.

I just went through my profile pics and vids from when Tyler and I started on this web site. Man I miss those days. We have traded riding for hunting and fishing together so I still get to hang with him but I do miss watching him ride.

Agreed. So i went and picked it up, brought it to my dads place. He has a full blown pro wood shop so I can at least bang out projects while we’re waiting. My line on the colorado part was a mistake ebay add... they were out of stock...


Onward. Upward.

I feel your manifold pain, I have a couple broken studs on the Hemi, will be the second time for repairs.
Annnd I heard a nasty crunching noise from front drivers side today, another U joint job needed. In 140k I've already done ball joints, front u joints, front and rear brakes and front shocks.
Snow plowing is definitely a contributing factor but holy Crap I've spent alot on repairs.

The dodge trucks at work would go through front ends all the time I think that was their biggest issue. I had a Dakota for a couple years mostly road driving and it had to have ball joints done at around 60,000 under warranty but still a pain.

Ok not female specific lol it’s a girls bike !
It’s slim pickings out there . She has a liv intrigue alum frame . It’s nice but just not burly enough for bike park or shuttles . Fox 34 and dual front ring. Not sure if I could go single front and make 1x on that bike ? Could I get enough to range out of a cassette on that bike?

What size bike dose she ride?
2.75 or 29?
What rear travel is she looking for?
A lighter more but expensive fantastic plastic ride or a few pounds heavier but less expensive aluminum ride?

When/if my new Zeb shows up I will have a 29-160mm Lyrik Ultimate for sale. Better than a 34. Puny fork. - Hulk 2021
She rides 27.5. I want to get her on plastic. 160mm would be ideal

Jamezyo.

Skyride doesn't have a lot in stock but they do have 2 Large Slayer Aluminum in stock. One black/orange and one blue. If I didn't already have a Aluminum Meta 29 I would be in on these ones. Marz build too, nice stuff.

That said the bike you have for sale is a medium so probably to big for your lady. Maybe give her yours and you ride Slayer? lol






They also have a couple of carbon RM Altitudes,
1- XL Devinci Troy
1- Ripley AF
Shorter travel rides.

I have a couple buddies on troys and they are really capable bikes. Not sure how they would handle lift significant lift access use.
