Newbie Check-In Thread!!

yep. Went to good 'ol NAPA and picked up the "expensive bling-bling" flex pipe. I am either tooooo cheap or a redneck. I've been looking at the posts about Fairbanks Radiator for a real exhaust, but nobody makes headers for a '72 or '74 torino to fit a '79 truck. The ones I have are made by a friend in ohio. I'll figure something out.

Hello my name is Tom Martin. My mud truck is a 1981 Toy called Mudzilla. It has evolved into a race rig. I do, however, enjoy trail riding, but I am currently hooked on the rush of kicking butt in the mud. My tow rig is a 1971 GMC, you may have seen it around, it has custom plates that read DADS71 and is painted 1995 Dodge Emerald Green. Yes, I do have a thing about naming my rigs. If anyone has or needs info about area mud races please feel free to contact me.
Thanks,
Tom

Hi, i'm Erik Johnson (hehe saw the other Eric Johnson on first page). I'm 15, going on 16 (learn to drive this year) and i've liked 4x4 trucks since i was a kid. I also recently just got a 1984 Chevy k20 3/4ton pick up, bone stock. I dont live in Alaska, or any arctic area, the reason i found these forums is cause i was looking for a place that sells hummer military bead locks, but came across those beadlocks AlaskaToy had. Anyways, I'm hoping to start fixing my truck soon, and then lift it 4" and put 35's on it.

Well thats pretty much it. Its nice to see you guys made a thread like this for the newbies to introduce themselves.

Oh, heres my ride:

It's not that I don't like other trucks, but I know Chevy's, and do prefer them. It is easier to modify and fix what you have always worked with rather than learning a new vehicle and it's quirks!

...besides, they rule! 8)

(and yes, Gary, they're for the cheap man! :lol: )

Hehe, I say the same about Toyotas, but truth be told, there's not a rig out there that doesn't need some help from an upgraded part from a rig with a superior trait. The best thing about AO is we are not a brand specific club. It brings knowledge and diversity to fend off evil, ignorant paradigms.

Welcome to the board. How far away is Wright Patterson AFB from you?

well ok i wouldnt exactly say i only like chevys. i am a sucker for tacomas, and red XJ (Skyjacker's XJ *Drool*) but the 73-87 fullsize chevy's are my absolute favorite trucks.
