Ric's Intimidator SS build

Recommended Posts

so i shouldve done the build thread a long time ago but its never too late since i still have lots of plans for it lol i just had a lil spare time today to do it. well i bought the truck back in feb 2012 and for the first year it was basically stock looking till the last couple of months which i kinda gave it a makeover. but this is how it started.

when it was at the dealer

Thats a good looking truck you got there. Very smart decision ditching those wheels.

Where did you get the rep rims from? Much better looking then the ones that were on there.

Truck looks 100x better than when you first got it, I'd like to know the drop as well!

I love every aspect of what you have done with this truck, my favorite DEI SSS I have ever seen. I am not a drop person, but I think you have done a tasteful job with it, love the red bow tie, blacked out grille and graphics on the hood. Very clean truck.

 

How do you like the R1 concept rotors? How is the difference in stopping power?

thanks man glad you like it, its all little details and stuff. and as for the brakes i did feel a difference but maybe because i installed new brake pads too while i was at it. but they do cool faster than the stock ones since they are drilled
