    man what a fluff job... LOL

    I always wondered why somebody would build a rig that obviously wasn't gonna be used for anything but looks, and then put multiple shocks (esp. chrome) with tires like that.

    LOL! Lets see it on a RTI ramp to see the suspension in action "crunch" --things break-- Oh yeah and how about the imaculate milage on this $60,000 bad boy. Equal to that of Bigfoot? A gal/mile?

    Okay..seriously. Chrome shocks? Does anyone know how bad chrome is at keeping heat in? Do you really want to keep heat in all 40 shocks? His truck is going to spontaniously combust one day. LOL!!!!

    I give $5 dolla!

    How fitting that it's parked in front of a stock brokerage! [​IMG]

    What's up with that front suspension? Looks like a home made lift kit or something! [​IMG]

    No thanks... don't like new GM trucks at all. The 88 t0 98 trucks are ok if you don't mind IFS. If I was buying brand new sad to say it would probably be a diesel Superduty or a couple year old Dodge Cummings

    Let me just say that I own a new Chevy with the 5.3 Vortec and it will run circles around my old '98 5.7 Vortec. On top of performing much better, it rides better, turns sharper, stops quicker, gets better gas mileage...... and on and on. I recently towed a 3/4 ton Dodge 4x4 on a flat bed trailer with it from Atlanta to Montgomery and it did it without any problems.

    '85 K5 : Run it til it breaks, then fix it and go again!

    I like the rear "truss" design - you can just scoop up any rocks/debris off the road and pull them out at home.

    Truss = Rock Grabber

    I wouldn't worry about that truss to much. It'll get yanked off the first time it's offroaded hard!

    it is obviously a very nice "puss" mobile. Where is the 60 front and ff 14 rear?

    IT'S A 1 TON THING.... IF I HAVE TO EXPLAIN IT, YOU WOULDN'T UNDERSTAND!!!

    I have a question for the seller...

    $80,000 invested? WTF were you thinking?

    I must admit, after seeing this truck, I am inspired. I'm going to have my interior chromed, carpet, seats, and all. If I can get the day off from work, they can chrome me, too.

    I like how he doesn't even mention whether it is a 1500 or 2500 and what engine it has. 2 Good selling points.
