its your choice so go ahead and make it yourself. i own DHG 890 and my dad has an 01 svt lightning. I have driven it quite a bit and don't get me wrong, its a great truck, but its no bullitt. it pulls like noneother but i get bored very quickly with the automatic. i am only used to cars so the ride, which is very upright, seems strange to me. go for it if that's what you want, its just not something i would do. oh yah, the lightning has been getting about 16 on the freeway and 12-13 in town.
