Thread: what do you drive?

  1. #1

    what do you drive?

    i miss my powerstroke, but i can't pull myself into one. even if i could, i couldn't justify buying one now that i can't rodeo.
    i bought a 3 door saturn. i never even got controls in it b/c i hate it.
    im thinking of getting a jeep grand cherokee. i can pull myself up, theres plenty of room for my dogs, its not low like a car.
    just wondering what you guys drive, and do you have lifts of just pull yourself in?

    This is the thread that covers it exhaustively:

    Hey I didnt give up my Powerstorke. I just made a video last night of how I get into it right now. Give me a day or 2 to get it uploaded. I sure get some funny looks from people when they see me get outta that thing. Oh I've found that the newer trucks have a different seat in them that makes them a tad tougher to get in and out of. Like my buddies 06 F350

    I almost bought one...It would do about a 13 second 1/4 mile with about 450 hp in a 7.3L diesel

    mine was a 99' powerstroke, so it had the 7.3 as well. i was planning on keeping her forever! we rolled many times, and took a nose dive into the ditch. when it was all over, the paramedics had to go over and turn it off....the engine was just purring. i would not want one of the newer ones with the smaller engines...problems and less power.

    thanks for all the replies! i didn't realize there was already a thread on it, sorry!

    I had a '99 F350 Powerstroke too before I got hurt. It was an amazing
    truck with all the mods I had done to it. Had it dynoed in Yuma, AZ
    and it was making 1200 ft. lbs of torque at 2700 rpm's. 7.3 was the
    best diesel engine ever.

    You aint a kiddin, We got a leader in 7.3 performance in my hometown, Once they get the bugs out of it, I bet it'll push upwards of 800hp on #2 only. My buddy has over 20k in his 7.3 right now, and it should be close to 650-700 once he gets the bugs worked out too. And mine I just started modding mine. I can't wait to start pulling with it, but I'm gonna need a tranny before too long

    Oh btw, we're all sled pullers around here, we need to get our trucks going, the Chevy's are killing us...
