    I thought about moving down towards Albemarle out in the country, but almost everything I found out that way for sale was all too expensive for what the property condition was.

    So for now I guess I'll stick to looking for a place out in the woods between here and Kannapolis.

    I've been to Albemarle. Played with the guard for a week and a half.

    I like it out that way; reminds me of the Midwest what with the way the landscape is and all the farming.

    Well, no big updates other than the growing list of shit to do to it.

    Hooked up to my friend's 2nd Gen 2WD Ram 3500 last night for shits and giggles.

    I lost. Big time.

    We pulled in a pasture so my tires filled up with mud as soon as we starting pulling, and the G80 not wanting to do it's job resulting in disappointment. Even in 4Hi I still only had 2WD.
    Oh well, you lose some and you lose some more.

    That's the exact video we joked about afterwards; I even heard that video or one similar to it was actually filmed at one of the strip-mall parking lots around here.

    Wow I am awful at keeping this thread updated.

    No big changes, I've been so bored of the truck I really need to do something to it so I don't get any crazy ideas about getting rid of it.
    Kicked around about a couple ideas power wise without really opening the engine up for a full rebuild....

    ZZ502 cam swap, Comp adjustable valvetrain with some new springs and pushrods, Scorpion 1.72 roller rockers, 0411 swap with tuning so it's mild mannered(ish) and a shift kit in the trans.

    But I think the effort to tear it down for a cam swap wouldn't be worth it, the engine only has about 165K so I don't think it's too worn out. I don't know, just throwing ideas out there.
    So I'll just go with the bolt ons for now, I'll probably swap to at least the 0411 and install a Transgo HD2 sometime soon, I just have to get ahold of Lextech again for a PCM kit and then see about a dyno tune.

    Could throw headers on too. That is, of course, assuming you wear your ovaries on the outside.
