good point summer 2001 and F&F really brought alot of un-due and un- wanted attention to people who now mostly take it to the track since it is not even worth it to run on the street anymore.

I wish I had a decent camera in my cell phone, but today on my mail route I saw a Dodge truck with a massive and I mean HUGE fart can on the tailpipe. I am not sure you can classify people who mod trucks as ricers, but I see a ton of trucks around here that have tacky mods.

BTW, have you ever seen those blue lights that people add to their wipers? WTF are those suppose to do?

YES!!! EXACTLY like that, except he only had one pipe. I have decided I am in the wrong business. I should have got in on making and selling piece of s--t parts for vehicles. God knows there will always be some moron willing to shell out the cash.

Sadly theres already a bunch of companies out their doing what you speak of. Shoulda jumped in when the F&F phase started. You woulda had a great future

Oh and the windshield wiper lights are just for decorations i guess

Was it a diesel? Some of those guys run massive cat backs when they mod their trucks. It might look goofy to some people but it is a functional and necessary mod. Putting duals on a diesel with one turbo and one downpipe is lame imo

If it is a diesel , chances are they weren't "fart cans" but just huge exhaust.
On my old Dodge/Cummins I had 5" exhaust, some trucks even larger or duals. On a modded Diesel , larger exhaust helps keep EGT's down.
