    What did you see about it? BTW, I have called my Blazer the beast for a long time too. That name sure fits them.

    I just got a quick look @ it on TV, looked like: '80's, cammo paint, swing out tire/jerry can rack, mill. hummer wheels, full cage, 6-8" lift, 36-38"s, looked like a soft ride, not too stiff of springs, winch up front.

    I thought it was a 73-75. Didn't it look like a full removable top. One of Metallica's guitar techs had a Fourwheeler cover truck a year or two ago. 1 ton crew cab dually ('86 I believe), runnin' 38.5" TSL's all the way around. It was his tow rig!

    I remember that one. In the article it said he pretzeled his u-bolts doing a hillclimb for the photo shoot. Somewhat ironic that The Unforgiven is playing on my dorm stereo right now.

    It would have happened anyways, Metallica was a catalyst. Besides, there are so many file sharing programs these days it's ridiculous.
