Hey fellers! Just wanted to introduce myself real quick. I just purchased my first Lightning last weekend. It's a 2001 with 20k miles. Only mods are traction bars and a flowmaster catback (needs replaced with a Bassani). I had to go up to NY to get it which made for a very enjoyable 280 mile ride home. :) These trucks ride great!!!

I'm going to TRY and keep it stock for at least this year...but who knows. I'm already getting the itch for a CAI, 4# lower, and chip :)

Thanks to Chis for pointing me to this site. From what I've been reading, it seems like a real close group of L owners!


BTW: How can I upload some pictures?

Yea wait till the warranty expires then mod the hell out of it, They are still the best ride with a bed , I have an 01L it has 60K on it and loved it everytime I start it up. I had a 93 and loved it too but had to give it up, wives are funny about having too many love interests around - 2 lightnings in one garage....... should have kept both and got rid of the wife? Did I just say that? Alot less maintenance........ and the warranty was over before I got to it!

Ok here we go! Some pics for ya'll. Forgive the salt and general dirtiness of the L. A 280 mile drive home in February is not forgiving to black vehicles. Just wait until I can get it cleaned up a little bit.

And that damn front license plate has got to go ASAP!

Finally got around to washing it today and snapped a couple pictures. Who said it's too cold to wash in the snow? :) I still haven't had a chance to throw some Vanilla Moose and S100 on it so the finish isn't as reflective, rich, or deep as I would like...I'm waiting for the weather to warm up a bit (at least in the 40's). I must say, I was originally looking for a white L but I'm liking black more and more :)

Still debating the first mod....I'm thinking CAI. Or maybe saving for a Bassani catback. Who knows.
