    Any tips or hints for the new owner of a 7 1/2 Fisher minute mount on a 1996 Chevy K1500 extended cab short bed 5.7 AT. I am already aware of the typical issues with thie vehicle itself (ball joints etc.)

    Go slow, and be careful. Fight the urge to rush. With the Fisher, if you hit something solid of considerable height, you'll be huggin the steerin wheel, trust me...

    :) I wasn't planning on breaking any speed records anyway. I tend to be fairly careful.

    Wear your seatbelt...
    I KNOW a lot of people don't, and that is just crazy and stupid.

    Trust me the better you get the faster you'll find yourself going until "wam:dizzy: you hit something and realize you were bookin' along probably a little fast. It's natural to want to go faster when your getting better.
