    No, I haven't got it yet so quit braggin. Now I have to go put my jacket on and walk down to the mail box just to see if it's there. Which it probably wont be. I'm always the last to get it. Your lucky you don't live closer or I'd be at your house now reading it in your bathroom.

    it's a 01 body on a 73 frame(so they can run a marine application 8.1L. It has a IFS kit built on to it and the cage is just awesome. It was only a sneak peek of what is to come.

    I don't usually get my magazine BEFORE these threads hit CK5, but this time I did.....

    The yellow 1st Gen on the cover looks pretty....but something's up with that grille. I looks like the "inner" was painted with too much silver paint.

    ALSO......Is it just me or does it seem like Christian Hazel won the lottery recently? /forums/images/icons/smile.gif First he installs a custom-built Dynatrac Dana60 ($$$$).....and now in the most recent issue you see his truck getting a custom "convertible" treatment, a custom rollcage, custom wheelwell fabrication, 42" Wheels.....A full compliment of Autometer gauges to replace the factory dash.......

    What else have I missed.....? Writing for a magazine must have it's priveleges, I suppose. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif And yes as a matter of fact I suppose I AM jealous.....

    No kidding! How in the heck do these guys get all that cash?!!! I'm sure it has something to do with the "fringe benefits" of working in the staff of a magazine...

    If you look closely on the yellow first gen you can see the hack job he did to the rear part of both the front and rear wheel wells to stuff those meats.
