    Looks stolen! Who putrs that much time and effort into something like that and then puts a $2000 Reserve on it! The tires and rims are worth that.... And it has a 383 Stroker!












    And what kind of air filter is that?! /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    I know I read an article before on hotrod's site or some other magazine like that where they tested them and though the small filters looked dumb they were the best performers. But that was a K&N style cotton filter not paper.

    1 ton frame? Is it only me, or do I see D44/10 bolt sized hubs in front?

    That's a Blazer frame or a 1/2 ton pickup frame! Look at where the shock mount is on the picture next to the tire! The picture is of the right rear tire wheel-well looking forward! The shock is in the location for a 1/2 ton, NOT a 1 Ton! The front hubs are of a 3/4 ton origin! That is NO D60! /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif

    I aint never seen a swampers go bald from sittin.The one ya can see in the right rear wheel well shot is done.

    And how come ya can see the passenger side floorboard from under the hood /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    And the angle of the steering shaft comming out of the column looks pretty sweet too /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    Tires won't go bald from sitting for too long, but they do go out of round. Then you either have to get tread shaved off, or just buy a new tire. That is probably what he is referring to. Since it has a 14bff 1 ton rear end he also thinks that makes the truck a 1 ton though too.
