Hes just one of those guys who loves spending money on trucks man if you seen his truck in person you would be amazed that thing pushes out 2000 hp from a 565ci chevy big block that shakes the ground. Hes selling it for $90,000 lol if only I had the money

I am running the skyjacker hydros and have been pleased with them. I have had the shocks on for 2 and a half years with no issues.
