    dont look like a deal to me. some people are just stupid, he wasted alot of money if he spent 46k on that thing and thats all he has to show. but that is just my 2cents :D :D

    I think he should have looked for a 2wd instead of a 4wd, would be a sweeter ride with airbags:D

    He also needs to ditch the roll bar.

    I never understand wny people build things like that and then sell them. I understand, if that's what you like and that's what you want, then build it.That's all great. You've built your dream, and it's great. I can easily see how you can spend $46k during the build, and that's fine if it's what you want and you can afford it. I give credit to those who realize their dreams.
    But why sell it? Why did you build it in the first place? If you built it to sell, your stupid. If you built it and then went, oh crap, I can't make the trailer lot rent, then your stupid. If your' trying to get every penny back you put into it, your stupid. If your trying to make money on it, your stupid. Any way you cut it, the guy is stupid for putting it up for $46.
    No one will *ever* pay $46 for it, I think he'd be lucky to get $15 or $20k.

    I know the guy who built that rig as well... I spent weeks doing photochop after photochop trying to help him decide on what paintjob to use, then he wound up using something totally different, lol

    Knowing what that truck has in it, I wouldn't pay more than 5 - 6 thousand, without the stereo, maybe 10 thousand with. He has some pretty extensive stereo in that truck, enough speakers to compete with any rock concert, and enough TVs to put Best Buy to shame!

    I agree 100%. Kinda looks like dat ride done been "pimped". I was stunned when I saw that. :screwy: This day and time w/ new trucks running in the $40K range I can see someone spending $15K for a really nice restored truck/blazer. I can't see them spending $46k.

    I don't think he really has $46K in it.

    i've seen MANY pics of this truck before, as i used to belong to the same forum that SierraClassic mentioned. its a VERY nice truck. would i pay $46K for it, probably not anywhere close. however, the attention to detail is outstanding.
