Real trucks don't have spark plugs.................

My diesel will crush you Nissan in a 1/4 mile and if you really wanted to make it fair we could hook a trailer on and load a Nissan on my trailer and a 2500 SRW on your trailer and run the race again. Unfortunately at that point you would be above your GVWR so you may not even make the full 1/4 mile before something (hopefully your senses!) gives way.

Seriously bashing a vehicle type that can actually do more work than your car because it was built for it is a bit daft.

Chipped, a few deletes, and open intake and a stack making 850 ft/lbs of torque before 2000 RPMs tells me that I'm pretty sure I would leave the line before you even thought about moving.

In all reality, I bought and built my truck to make a lot of torque not so I could go fast, but so I could tow anything and do work around the farms and in town. And the 4x4 system allows me to be able to do it in any condition.

Of course my Jeep is still reserved for the really tough stuff and most recovery operations.

Sshhhhh... that's the only thing we can make fun of them for.

I'm not saying we should kill stupid people... Just get rid of all the warning labels...
If you find my comments to "infer" something, they don't. Go to hell.

Yep you are correct. Still wonder why they never went with 35s from the factory, heck even my 35" spare fits in the stock spare location. Last few time we went wheeling, the Powerwagon gets more nods and comments, then when I wheeled my YJ with 1tons and 39.5s.

My only down fall is the reduced bed capacity due to the softer springs and no overloads. But that helps with flex resulting in a 655 rti score

Assembled in OH. Doesn't mean all the parts are made in America.

I never said they are 100% American. We were discussing where they are built, there is without a doubt... a **** ton of foreign stuff in all American vehicles. We ain't in the 1950s anymore.


EDIT: Many Kia vehicles are built in Glovis, GA. Hyundai has a plant in Montgomery, AL, both of which I've been inside of, and brought truck loads of parts too on many occasions. Actually that was my regular route for a while, Glovis and Montgomery. Them robots sure are fascinating.

They're only Asian if they aren't microwaved.
