    Poor guy, it sounds like he is really trying to be honest in selling the truck, but is just misinformed. Those blocks up front are crazy :shame: Not a bad looking truck though, in my opinion.

    wow. i can't say much cause the truck i just got has like inch blocks in front and 6 inch homemaders in rear. yes you can tell they are homemade. but like he said he "was" tryin to be honest. i'd have left it short though.

    1" "blocks" may be zero rates and if so, that's much better.
