    plans

    I plan on selling my first car as soon as i get about 20K saved up, i will live at home and pay my cell bill, gas, insurance, and if my mom needs a bit of money for bills ill pay her, other than that im going to be saving everything! Once i have the money saved up im going to buy a chevy colorado similar to this one

    I want to lift it about 6 inches and get offroad tires and new rims.
    Finally i want to go all out with a CarPC through here mp3car.com

    I recond i will have 5K to lift it, and get a carpc, maybe depending on how much left go for the offroad tires and rims
    My expected outlook is shown below!

    I just thought i would share what i want my truck to look like
    Now i know i will run into problems installing the carpc so is there anyone here that has installed a couple carpc's that can help me? I am willing to travel to you. Preferably within a couple states from Cali.

    CRINGESSSSS.... god I hate lifted trucks..... I guess because I come from a sport car enviroment, i have always prefered my trucks low to the ground. It does look nice though. Are you going to keep the rims black? I have always loved black rims (think chrome is played out.) A CarPC would be great for an offroad enviroment (you would have to really secure it though, maybe by a specialized case that can obsorb the shock). Could use GPS to help you on trails, and maybe even engine diagnostics to tell you why your car is acting up.... the posiabilities are endless.

    Good luck with that for only $5K
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    5k Will buy you a very nice lift, a very nice lift. But i would take that money and put it in a pair of diff's and then get a 3 - 4 inch (2 inch body and 2 -3 inch Suspension lift) and that should be fine (unless your not going off roadeing)
