I was just wondering (ball park numbers) how much money you've spent on your trucks, like tires, wheels, shocks, glass, this that. i'm just getting started with mine and it looks like suspension is goin to be around $2500-3000 then new tires and rims, gears and all the rest. So what have YOU spent on your truck ?

I want to know what i'm getting into:)

about 2300 so far (800 for truck, 500 for tires, 1000 for front suspension) still need rear gears and rims and rear springs. hoping about another 1000-1200 will get me there.

Too much, if judged by any other standard, or normal POV.
Funny thing is, there seems to be no end in sight once you've started!
You have to pay to play. Period.

Let's see, over the last ten years, figure gross income minus taxes, rent, ammo, a toothbrush here and there, um, well, I guess I spent ALL of it. BTW, when I die I wanna be buried in my F-150 (with the harnesses on, of course). If I go where I think I'm going, I'll need A/C and an ice chest.

I refuse to answer this question on the off chance my wife someday wonders into here and sees my reply!

I stopped counting 2 years ago, and that was before I started the engine, cage, coilovers, equal length beams and 3-link. All in all it is way more then I had ever planned. I'd say I'm in this thing about 12K. Not good, but also not bad for a supercharged ranger. Steve

Well said Gabe. I've never spent less that $20,000 on any vehicle, race or chase for desert racing since the 1980's. That is a LOW ballpark figure, but if you don't plan on five digits you'll be disappointed when you can't finish your project. Or you can just join the white fender club and only go so far. Choice is always yours. JMHO.
