  1. Best advice i ever heard is that you cant build on a budget. Project cars take time, save up the money and do it right.

  2. The only cool truck in this was the Chevy at 3:18 and at least it didn’t have those god awful wheels

  3. I've been watching alot of you guy's videos and I'll agree with the gas vs diesel part. (You guys have alot of good content btw) I'm a wrench and I can honestly say the gasser 6.0, 6.2 or the 6.4 hemi engines are underrated. If you're gonna pull often, diesel. You'll save money, wear and tear on the engine and trans. But otherwise gasser. My dad ran a plow truck for years with a 6.0 chevy. Worked fine.
    I guess the big different besides initial price point, is maintenance. Diesel are far more expensive maintenance wise and can run way more money if you're trying to blow it up with burnouts and hard launches. Injectors are more expensive, turbos, etc. A gasser just goes. Dont have to plug it in when winter comes knockin, oil changes are cheaper, no emissions b.s., etc.just saying. Especially when you live in Minnesota like me and the state runs B20 fuel for diesels and it gets stupid cold for a few months. Not knocking diesel. But if you aren't pulling often. Then you're wasting money.

  4. You really think those chrome wheels look as good as polished or machined aluminum? Poor taste for such a Publicized channel. Just my opinion. No sugar.

  6. Hey Fuller, I have a rancho lift that measures at around 5.25" front lift on my 2010 sierra. I did a norcal tuck and I'm clearing 35's, but I want more of a negative offset look, so do u think it would look better with a more negative offset but id have to down grade to 33's, so a lot of wheel/fender gap. Or keep my current set up? The 35's sick out about an inch.

  7. The only thing you shouldn't go cheap is shock absorber a. I should know, I got some Ironman4x4 shocks and they are as bad as they get… You don't have to go Fox or Kings, but at least some Bilsteins, any monotube will do just fine

  8. hi from Australia our truck typically dont have a "gasser" option generally diesel.. I drive a nissan patrol ute which rivals the Toyota landcruiser.. but as a diesel mechanic my patrol is old school direct injected not common rail.. i prefer the older more reliable vehicles.. kinda like your Cummins 12 valves 👌

  10. I’ve msgd you guys before a local wheel shop in danville va has tried abt 6 times to balance my truck tires , iv bought my 3 rd set now all are new , maxtrek 33s were too small but after that I went to Achilles m/t 35s I caught the guy abt ring the lug nuts off in a circle motion not cross pattern so now I buy a set of Kanati mud hogs , they have over 5 lbs of stick on wheel weights and nail on weights, Iwhat do I do buy new wheels and go to another tire shop, I do auto body , I should have brought them back and hand torqued them , the stick on weights are double stacked in 3 rows ! Half of the way around on the wheels then nail on covered by blk duct tape, that ended up going into my brakes and smoking and burning ! Within 10 miles , so embarrassing driving a hummer and putting work into it , seriously think they tweaked the wheels with the impact gun!

  11. I love how everyone rants on building "mall crawlers." Like I get it you want a capable vehicle, but look at the vehicles you're criticizing. Top of the line most recent year huge trucks. They don't come cheap if you are new to this whole vehicle thing. Wonder what these idiots are driving…Lifted 2003 chevy's with mud crawler tires? Cool beans. Don't tell me you wouldn't take a 60k-80k custom built truck if someone offered. Just don't.

  12. I would like to know the difference in a leveling kit and lift kit. I have a 2018 Colorado z71. I hate the very small tires. Want a taller tire without putting the truck so high that it’s hard to get into. Thanks

  15. Well I have a 2014 ram 1500 4wd regular cab and I have the 6” rough country lift and federal couragia mt 37×12.50r17 on 17×9 -12 offset Mickey Thompson Classic lll and the 50” dual row cree led light bar and it all works great I have 2 years with the lift and I have zero issues and with the federal tires I have 10,000 miles on them and they are at the half life but I have taken it off road to the Uwarrie off road trails which are very rocky and will tear your tires up and these tires have done great can’t complain at the $700 price for all 4 new and these rims I bought them for $275 for all 4 so all in all I spent $975 for rims and tires but in total with suspension and wheels/tires lighting and performance upgrades (engine) I’ve spent roughly $6,500++ but to install the lift it was about $350 my buddies at the place I use to work at helped me out to have it installed and they did it in like 2 hours 😉

  18. The most expensive thing about "building" a truck or any custom vehicle is LABOR. So do your own work and you'll save a ton. Also, buy used stuff……at car shows, flea markets, etc.

  19. Makes me so depressed and sad for those diesel…. ok and gasser trucks you see on the road with the nice lifts and big fancy chrome tires cause you know that truck will never see dirt. If your gonna spend that much on a truck and customizing it to never go off road get a sports car or import or exotic car. Your just gonna get laughed at and called a poser when real truck owners see you on the road. There should be a law on truck abuse and owners that neglect them and the trucks should be taken away from that person and adopted out to a new owner that will take care of the truck the correct way lol.

  20. If you drive 40k miles a year get a diesel. If you tow heavy ass shit ALL the time get a diesel. If you don't do them two things. Get a gasser. Save some money. Simple.

  28. This is a awesome video and solid advice and I will probably follow must of these tips expect the lifts cause my truck is pretty tall from the factory

  29. The hate is real and it’s hilarious! If you don’t like lifted trucks just keep moving and quit trolling. I drive mine Offroad during hunting season but it’s on pavement 99.9% of the time. That’s most people out there. Doesn’t make you a douche because you have nice taste and like trucks. Most of you making fun are typing in your moms basement with your Mazda 3 in the driveway. Get over it.
