yeah, my spreadsheet shows I have over $3k in parts for mine and most of my parts were used at good discounts. This cost doesn't include tires.

Don't even get me started. LOL I imagine I had more invested before I lifted than half of the quality built trucks in here. Almost $6k....
I'm looking at Mod investments only.

I sold my TB for $8500. That was what almost exactly what I had in mods/repairs into it. Including a set of $900 headers that didn't arrive until after I gave up the keys.

I paid $14.5k for my TB when it was new to me.

My wife can never see these numbers.
11 Silverado LTZ - 6.2L/6l80, 2/3 drop, self tuned
85 Hilux - 3RZ, dual cases, caged, 40s, chromo everything
02 TrailBlazer LTZ - 35s, lockers, balls - Gone but not forgotten - Build

I'm sad to say the SME experiment has been disbanded due to lack of participation.

As always, if anyone has any ideas for future growth or development of the ORTB site, please send them my way. Maybe there's another good way to drum up some excitement on this site.

I guess in the trips section? I know Randy had some suggestions, now I have no idea what trails we were discussing.

Ok, I see it, just expected it to be on the main portion with the announcement beings it's more of a special event than just in the western sub.
