If you need a truck, use it. A truck is a utility vehicle (for use for work, usually). Dont understand why trying to make one look good even matters- kinda wanting a hammer to look good. Only thing - theyre more dangerous on the road than many people know. A kid I knew was given a "solid truck" from his parents on the guise that it is much safer and more "solid" than most "small" cars on the road.

A dengerous assumption and false sense of security/ safety, I should say.

Again, I'm a fan of real trucks. This is just one person's opinion but that little S-10 falls short of any muscle category and ONLY TO MYSELF, because it's not attractive as it does not represent hot rod in that continuum nor does it represent testosterone as it pertains to adult muscle.

For the Fast and the Furious high school teenage crowd, I can see it. Hot rod? Puleeze. Nice ride for what it is though.

i see = you don't know what you are looking at.

its NOT a low rider punk truck, like nearly all modified S10's are. what you see is a HOT ROD, in every sense . ported heads, cam, intake, blower, intercooler, traction bars, hood mounted gas psi gauge, 15" wheels, white letter tires, the list goes on and on.
and hear this, that little 4.3 has about 500HP. i eat big blocks with that truck. if i put slicks on it, and i will some day = low 11's.

No, don't kid yourself. No matter what you run nor do I care of your HP ( as it's torque that takes the cake anyways) and not to mention my truck runs 512 HP majority stock, that truck can nor ever will it be allowed to be called a hot rod. Fast, eh. Hot rod? If you're five years old and know no better.

Come on dood, that's a go kart at best.

Easy there Fix'n it

You must have some tolerance for the poor boy. He knows not of which he speaks. He's confusion is not his own fault but that of all the stinky ford fumes he's been drenched in.

He's a good lad at heart... He's still learning

Trucks..


My first 3 trucks were Rangers. Now, I lived with my parents and didn't NEED a truck, but I enjoyed off-roading on trails and driving to back-woods fishing locations, and hauled all the wood my parents heated their house with while I lived there.

Now I've got an 05 Frontier, and can't see most people over needing more truck. I've towed 550 gallons of water multiple times when I lived with a buddy who had a cistern to fill. It takes my dirt bike to the trails nearly every weekend. I fill the bed and my trailer up with wood multiple times a year to haul the wood I heat with and help out my parents still with firewood. And occasionally I'll get 4 people and a cooler in the cab and we'll do some mild 4-wheeling. And I've got the pin-striping and dents to prove it.

Most the time though...I haul air to work during my 60 mile round trip commute. And I love driving by the other business men in their spotless Powerstrokes and Duramax's and wondering why they spend so much money to drive such a cumbersome vehicle every day?
