5 MODS that RUINED trucks...





What'S going on, you guys flew from custom, offsets custom offsets TV on the YouTube, and it is about time that we finally give you a build update on the f-350, because it's been a couple weeks. We bought it. It'S been chilling at the shop. So it's time to show you the progress. This is what we've done. Unfortunately, we've just pulled it into the hoist. It'S not actually even on the hoist it's just in the hoist and it's stuck. We do have like a thousand miles on it. So cos we've been driving it, but it's that I'm sorry we'll jump into the video now all right. So I don't want to offend anyone when I make this video, but the thing is we all have been there at some point. Even some of us here, I'm not gon na name names and we're not gon na admit that we ever did any of these modifications to our vehicles, but it happened. That'S how it goes. We were all sixteen or seventeen at some point other than if you're 15 right now and watching this, then I guess you weren't, but basically everybody that watches our channel was a kid at some point, and I know that because that's how life works and we did Modifications to our vehicles that I'm not gon na say we regret, but we maybe shouldn't have because they're questionable and quality and just questionable overall and they might look strange or they perform weird. They don't do what they say. They'Re gon na do or it's the cheap knockoff ones and we've all been there. Let'S just let's get that out of the way we've been there, we've done it. We all understand so jumping right into it, then we're going to cover five of the like worst mods or five of the mods, that ruined our vehicles and just go over those today so coming into it. Like I said, the first one has to do a suspension. Now suspension is expensive, I'm just gon na put that out there. Even if you buy a base model kit, chances are you're gon na, be spending at bare minimum a couple hundred dollars, but most of the time well over a thousand dollars. And if you want something that rides like a Cadillac like we keep getting emails about, be prepared to spend like three four five thousand dollars, depending on what you go with now, when you're, 16 or 17, you don't have that kind of money. At least I didn't. I'M speaking from experience, there was no way that I had that much cash saved up and I didn't even have a credit card because I was not 18 yet and didn't know what credit was so I couldn't do so. What everybody did does did do currently is doing in high school is cranking their keys, so on, like I think it. Oh three, two, oh seven classic Chevy 1500 is a great example. Torsion bar truck people will go in there. They take their half inch. Milwaukee m18 fuel impact and they just drive those straight up and it lifts the front end, which is great because that's what they wanted to do. They wanted to lift the front end, so they put bigger, wheels and tires on and then they realize that it rides. Like a brick, if you could take a brick and put it down the highway and it would bounce all over the place, that's how your truck rides now, but are you lifted yeah sort of kinda? You got the front end higher. That was your overall goal. It looks how you want, but it just rides like crap and we've all been there. We'Ve all done it, but if we're gon na you know give some advice here. Just by the leveling kit, you can get a leveling kit for cheap, like two hundred dollars say roughly, it really depends on what you're, getting especially on my portion of our trucks, they're pretty cheap to get leveling keys just go with that. Don'T crank your stock keys! Okay, yes, I did it. I had a ranger one time I cranked the keys on that. It rode like crap, we're just gon na get that out of the way moving on to the next one. So a first mod that many many people do to their vehicle is exhaust, and now the options are basically endless when it comes to what you're. Putting on your truck, but when it comes to the bad form of exhaust or something that we wouldn't want you to do, that would be straight pipes now. I am guilty of this. I'M gon na say that I feel like I've done. Basically, every single one of these - and I said I wasn't gon na, say names, but I can say my own: that's fine, I'm gon na! Do it just about every vehicle that I've owned, especially when I was younger. I got it so get next day to the muffler shop instead cut those suckers off, because I want straight pipes and every kid in my high school that had their 97 f150 had either straight pipes or cherry bomb', and they were loud as heck. There was no back pressure for your motor and we just gassed it everywhere. We went straight to the floor as loud as possible because we thought that was the coolest thing ever and now that I'm older. I know that that's not necessarily good for your vehicle and it's not that cool to be really loud because of one simple reason: if you are across the block and you do a Burnout and there's a cop and he's over there, you're really loud, he can hear You he's gon na come over and get you that's the problem. If you have a truck, that's not quite so loud, you can go screw around over there, and this guy is over here. He'S just gon na keep eating this doughnut he's just he's just hanging out. So it's great! So if you're gon na put exhaust system on your truck look into something quality, don't just go for the cheapest option, because there are a ton out there on Amazon and eBay and they're called MTM motorsports and our PR whatever. Because they just have random letters. And you don't know the quality of those things, but you read through the list and it says aircraft grade aluminum or it has some 10.1 steel and it makes you feel like you're, getting a quality piece of equipment when really you're. Probably not, and you don't have any gaskets and the welds aren't good and the whole thing falls apart. So if you're gon na spend the money on exhaust, don't spend $ 200 just go ahead and buy an actual true exhaust system, because not only will it sound better, it won't be obnoxiously loud and rat feet unless you're going forward and go ahead and do it. But it also will actually help performance versus just having no back pressure at all and just winging it. The next one number three we've been here: we've done it, it's called Plasti Dip. Custom offsets has done it requested it, the entire truck. We wouldn't recommend it. Don'T do it it's it's terrible! It'S a pain in there to take off. Why did we consider plastidip Ahmad? You probably have seen this on the Internet. Hashtag plastidip is not a mod. Well, you know it's great for badges. If you're, trying to black out your badges or you want to black out your drill, it's cool, it works good. You know it goes on nicely, but the biggest issue is you can't take it off. I know it's marketed that you can just peel it off, but it doesn't work like that. We did a whole truck, it took forever to get off and then the biggest downfall probably isn't actually taking it off, because there's a good chance. If you spend the money to get your whole vehicle professionally dipped you like that look, you wanted to go for a matte paint job, but paint jobs are $ 6,000 and plastidip for a vehicle as $ 1,000. So it's just way cheaper to do it. That way, that's why people do it. If you take a truck off-road or if you drive your truck down the street and there's any sort of dust out there, it clings to it because Plasti Dip is a rubber. So literally, everything sticks to it and it basically like eats its way into the Plasti Dip, and you can pressure wash it. It won't come off. You can sit there and scrub on it and it won't come off. So then, you're, like alright I'll, put some elbow grease into it. We'Re gon na really scrape on this we're gon na we're gon na get the dirt out of my plastidip, because I took my plastic tip, avalanche mudding and now it's covered in everything that was black. Now looks Brown well now you tear the plat to dip, and now your truck is peeling in places you like alright I'll, just grab this cannon I'll just fill in some of the spots, and now it's uneven and blotchy and it just doesn't look good Plasti Dip Is not a mod, don't do it? I'M sorry. If you have Plasti Dip on your truck, I'm not trying to offend you. I'M just saying speaking from experience, Plasti Dip bad choice. Then we have classy tip wheels. I'M just gon na say this: don't if you want new wheels, come with coconuts a deck out soft plugs. We touched briefly on exhaust, but for the next point I'm just gon na call it like poor man's performance mods, because you walk into autozone you head over to aisle 7. You go past the cashier you're like scuse me. Sorry, I got ta get this. You see that big, shiny, cold air intake and you're, like that's the one I got ta, have it it's just a plastic tube that they've made appear to be chrome and it's got your blue filter on the end, because it's awesome and who wouldn't want a colored Filter but the issue of that is that kits like $ 40 and it's not actually a cold air intake, because your cone is still in the engine bay right next to your engine. We'Re super hot, so you've basically made a short RAM intake or a hot air intake, and it doesn't actually help the performance of your vehicle. But I can totally see why you spent for $ 40, because if you want the K,
