    Looks cool, but could not be very useful.

    yeah I think it looks pretty cool but not very useful unless you like going to the mall but it would still be a hassle to drive there.

    pop, bang, boom! no stock light duty IFS would ever hold up to those tires. It'd have to be parts sourced from a newer military rig, medium duty truck of some kind etc.

    anyone remember the vid of the H2 breaking its tie rod on a totally weak trail? Imagine whats gonna happen if you got those 46s crossed up.

    yeah, getting in that thing would not be easy. With a chopped up trail rig you can climb up on the rear tire and get to the seats from the bed of a rig... but that thing? gonna need a grappling hook and rope to get up there.

    Yeah... I remember that H2 video and it is pretty funny. I highly doubt that this thing will ever see any offroad. Im thinking the ifs may hold up since it will live in 2wd all its life. The 11.5" aam rear should hold up though. Just look at it...its all shiny and pretty, this guy isnt going to take it out and scratch it up on the trail. It even has chrome bumpers.....oh wait....I have chrome bumpers.:doah:

    i will say one thing, the only time 20s should be used on a truck is when the tires are hella tall, like those michelins. Looks ok then. I wouldn't run them on anything shorter than a 42 for sure. Dudes who have SUVs with 22" rims and 31" tall tires? uhg, fugly!

    I see that truck about once a week not far from my work. Some kid, yes KID, is always driving it and I always see him pulling into a neighborhood off about 59th Ave and Happy Valley. I parked next to him one day with my 89 (5" lift, 35's) and felt really, really small.

    I think its funny how everyone bashes that truck. Mall crawler yes? Pick up the chicks...most def. It is a cool truck catches peoples eyes and prolly does what alot of college guys want it to do. I know my blazer will never be as extreme as alot of people's here, but dont hate on a truck that was obviously not made to go offroad. There is a guy here in town rockin like 52michelins on a 05-06 F-250. badass suspension setup and all, but it wont ever see anything offroad, but he has a 4 door and everytime you see him, its him and 4 other *fine* girls. I dunno bout ya'll but i wouldnt complain if i was in his position.
