Funny you should say this, as it'* on my mind, too. I joined this forum with the mindset, "I don't need mods, I just want to make my daily drivers run good."

Well, now the cars are running good, and this site has helped to give me the "mod bug."

I haven't done much yet, but I'm formulating a plan and will probably start a "critique my mod plan" post in the Performance forum.

I'd probably be driving the Zilla if it were running right now. But not in Ice and Snow. That'* what the SLE is for.

4 months, whats with that?

I'd have to say it sucks driving these cars in winter cause you can't use them the way you want. Even with my minimal mods and dry roads if the temp outside is below 20*F i'll spin right through first.

Well, what is the definition of modded? Do u mean modded as in power increase or modded so that it is not stock anymore, doesn't matter if it adds weight (aka Pat) or adds lots of hp (aka Boosty and everyone else with a L67)

If it'* the second definition, then yeah I drive mine everyday, it never rest longer than overnight. I'll probably hit 140-150,000 miles by the end of this year.

I drove it for about a year like this..

Basically I'm waiting on a deal for the pump. Typical cost of the pump module (includes sender) is $300+. I might swap out just the pump if I get off my butt and look at a truck forum one day.
