    Well I got back from 3 days and 3 nights at Bloomsburg 4x4 Nationals. Here are some pictures.

    Stupid Crazy lifted Burb on airbags.

    Chevy on 46" Claws, 3/4 ton however. I must say I like it despite the non-functionality of a 3/4 ton on 46s.

    Very clean K30 shortbed on 39.5 claws with a 504 cui blown BBC. Made me think of Mudjunkie's rig big time.

    Lowered heep on airbags

    49" IROK equipped, 2.5 ton Rockwell axles under it.

    Blazer on 2.5 tons. Kind of made me want to build one...

    Truck we rolled in and out of the fairgrounds in. Just finished the work like the night before we left. 4" suspension, 3" body, 35" SSRs. Hes pretty well talked into 14 bolt in the back, crossover steering, shackle flip out back, maybe some drop front spring hanger setup and bigger tires.

    Cat Scratch Fever, been in Four Wheeler a couple times I think, I liked it quite a bit.

    One of the Sibling Rivalry rigs(the big black Chevy). They replaced the front coilovers with leaf springs, why I have no idea.

    That Taco was I must say one of if not my favorite rig in the show. Didn't look over the drivetrain other than the axles but I definetally liked the dents, axles, and tires.

    Oh and since for a bit we didn't have a grill here is a beer can converted to a handy dandy pan...

    yeah it was open header with a small block. Must say even from our campground almost a mile away there was a constant sweet exhaust note in the air /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif. Realize now I really didn't take enough pictures, was constantly on the move. Should have gotten shots of a bunch of more rigs. Took my camera more for the role of taking pictures of scary stuff, believe me there was some SCARY stuff. Also stopped at the Dynatrac tent this morning and checked out the 40 spline 60 shafts. Sick pieces. Dynatrac representative tells me, "you won't break those" I laughed at him, he said "alright but you won't have a truck left".

    Is this truck a custom engine, or how did he get 504 ci?

    Does this guy wheel this truck, or is it just for show? It looks clean and nice /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    no idea if he really wheels it, would be a shame if he didn;t but how clean it is I'd be a little weary of wheeling it. Its probably a bored out 502 or something.

    so is this chrome bar functional? This is the basic Idea I'm running with for my front brackets but I wasn't going to cover the bolts, I was going to weld a tube back just above the bolt

    believe me a little aluminum was a lot better than raw meat /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif first night there, everyone at least a little drunk we decided to try and cook burgers on these stoves. Yeah I was sober enough to not touch those things, sick.
