    new mag that has just come out. Not sure about it but I picked it up cause it has some article about turning a Zuki into a hardcore crawler /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif. Features a lifted crew cab Chevy on airbags with 44 TSLs. Show beast but I really like it. At least at ride height, when they air it up to 20" of lift it looks like crap. I don't think it has a front shaft though /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif they strategically took all the pictures so you can't see that.

    Not Primedia for once. Buckaroo Communications, same people as Chevy Rumble. Steering on that CC is scary though /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    In order to allow the suspension to move that much theres no real way to make perfect steering, they would be better off with full hydro.

    I was looking @ one at work It's pretty lame, IMHO, I did more mods to my blazer before I new what I was doing, then these trucks have done to them. All those rigs in that rag are relativly new and are pretty much run of the mill, mall rated crap /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gifIMHO /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    That big chevy belongs to a friend of mine named Travis, he owns a shop in Ventura Califonia called Tag Team Racing and no there is not a front drive shaft.

    if it were me I'd build that chevy with airbags but not have it so adjustable. Just use the airbags for a nice ride with that much lift. I'd just sit at the street height cause I think it looks great at that height.

    buckaroo communications They don't yet have 4x4 Builder up on the front page.

    I've seen that Tag Team truck in person (I live in Ventura). Let's just leave it at that.
