    i would have to say yes.
    same tires and rims. it would be odd just to see a '03 duramax 6x6, let alone one in the same color with the exact same wheels and tires.

    <font color="green"> Dang, that is one hell of a bumper... Reminds me of those early Trail-Ready ones that wrapped around the front of the hood. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif </font color>

    if they were furd 9" then they were converted to FF 9"'ers

    I liked the before pic better too but it has what looks like generators on the back that makes it sweet too. Loose the brush guard thats swallowing those headlights we all love to hate

    Yes, that is is. They had it on Headline News last night off the Detroit Auto Show. The inside looks like a friggen fighter cockpit with all the switches and do dads. All that crap crammed in there cant all work. Looked to me like one of those pannels where you put "machine gun" "smoke bomb" crap like that. Was cool though.

    I believe there is a turret for a 30 cal. on the top of the bed, along with a millon other things. Bumper is wierd (supposed to slow or stop bullet from penetrating radiator/engine block), but otherwise is uh............... big. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif
