    In a recent thread i mentioned i talked to a guy who own a GMC 4500 Topkick.

    I caught him on his day off from work. he owns his own construction company and bought it 6 months ago. i talked to him for a good half hour. i asked him if he knew about the movie and he said "HELL YEA!!!! THEY got Ironhide in there as a topkick!"

    well after some opinions tossed around i asked if he was going to make it look like Ironhide. he said yes but only slightly.

    He is going to put the Autobot symbol on the tailgate, has rims that resemble the movie, the Road Armor accessories are on order, and already has smoke stacks installed(my god those things are BIG!!!)

    he also put i a 6" lift kit since he goes mudding often, but is not going to use the Nitto tires that are in the movie cause they dont do crap as an off-road tire. and a winch (yes he does have it in the movie)


    he enhanced it with a Foglight Bar across the roof, rollbar, and tinted taillights.

    he asked if i wanted to go for a ride and i immediately yelled "FUCK YEA!!!!"

    gettin in is a different story.... im 5'9" and this guy is 6'3" and even he has some trouble getting in.
    it rides really smooth and is very quiet, especially for a diesel.

    after ward taking me back to the parking lot he told me he's going to put a new engine setup which will be a larger intercooler, twin-turbo kit, bio-diesel mod, transmission upgrade, tuning, and some interior luxuries.


    i dont have a camera on my cell... stupid water damaged it or i wouldve taken pics.
    but all i have is a nice story.

    if you think im BSing then f*** off

    wouldnt it be cheaper for this guy to just go out and buy the actual Topkick that is being released that matches Ironhide, with autobot logo and all?

    Ironically, it was this statement that made BSing cross my mind.

    If you are BSing, then you would put a line in your story mentioning that you are not BSing. Just my thought anyway!

    Of course it was. Look at the number of people who have jumped to call BS on him. Nobody will ever believe somebody else on this site at face value.

    I'd have believed him if he didn't say, "I'M NOT BSING FUCK YOU!" etc.

    I guess the biggest thing that amazes me about people calling BS on stuff is the "Who cares" factor. Like, honestly...who fucking cares if original poster is lying or telling the truth about riding in Ironhide? It's not like we're the damned NSA and we're running a background check on the authenticity of his claim or anything.

    Dude said he rode in a Topkick. That is cool. Why would anyone even feel the need to try and hunt down the factual truth behind his claim? Like, it just doesn't matter, in the grand scheme of things, to anyone else anywhere.

    See, I agree with you.

    My original posts were just messing around with the guy, I'm not serious.

    'scool.

    EDIT: Know what? I just realized how regularly I see the older model Topkicks around the airport. Thing is, they're always painted white or yellow, not black. Color change makes a world of difference!
