    Just got the issue yesterday. 2 weeks after the December issue. Anyways is the Blazer on pages 62 and 63 anyones on this list? What about the kick-ass Surburban on page 68 or the Blazer on 70? Are Fullsize Blazers becoming popular in the off-road press again? We seem to be getting a lot of coverage lately. It has been a nice change after all the Jeep TJ overkill coverage lately.

    What do you guys think of the 50,000 dollar Surburban on page 91? I am thinking they need to get back to real trail rigs guys can afford. If it was given to me I sure would enjoy it though.

    Anyways another great issue. Way better then my Jan 02 issue of Off-Road. Can you believe the Nascar driver trucks they put in the issue. I mean Dale Jr's winch looks brand new, like they installed it for the photo shoot. Not to mention his Chevy and the Biffle Superduty truck are both pretty plain looking trucks to even put in a magazine. See trucks like those driven by rich possers all the time.

    Just my thoughts.

    DAMN, They spent so much time getting you the Jan. issue they musta forgot my Dec. issue. I guess that's why they sell subscriptions for $10.00. Hopefully when/if I do get it, it will be more than just the outside cover this time.

    The Blazer on p70 belongs to Steve Rumore of Avalanche Engineering (the Sniper/Assasin guy). Pretty cool truck. I thought the blue one was kind of silly, though.

    YES!!! Elliot, I totally agree about the Dale Earnhardt Jr. truck in Offroad. I mean, EVERYONE in this city has a truck like that. And every other guy has a Ford like Biffle's. That magazine is really starting to suck! Their articles are so-so at best and their ads are starting to look more interesting than the features. That's too bad because it used to be a cool magazine.
