Ok, first I want to acknowledge the 6.0 winning the burnout contest. The smoke that poured out when he lifted the bed was awesome. Now, I do have to say though that I was a little disappointed in the showing of the lifted trucks. I think that it's great that they are so clean and the gas tank might even be polished but where is the mud? Hey if you have a 2009 lowered with 7 tv's and 24inch rims I expect that to be clean, but if you have a lifted pre 97 then i want to see that it's used, I checked the inner frame rail on the blue lifted 9th gen f series and there was NOTHING!!!! NO MUD AT ALL, all I could say was what a waste. Don't get me wrong that was one of the most beautiful trucks there and would give most anything to have it but I felt bad, it was sitting there on top of the hill, looking off into the distance at large fields of dirt and mud longing to be free. I saw the sadness in it's eyes (well headlights) and could feel their pain. I too want to run free.. sorry started to get off topic. ANYWAY, I'll be at truck nat's in my 92 150 COVERED in mud entered in the show. All in all it was an amazing day and getting a lighted LUND moon visor with no cracks for only 20 bucks just made my day.
Rich, some of them build just for show and are scared to get them out of the garage. It's probably the same ones that has a little peice of junk they drive in the winter and complain that they can't get anywhere in the snow. I could never understand why anyone would spend all kinds of money fixing something up, take it to a show, and not have it all shined up. Oh well, maybe I'm the crazy one! lol
