    I was on the way to get dinner tonight and found this at the One Man Band Diner up the road from my house. I was talking with the gut and he said it took him 9 months to build the front end. he only has a 12 bolt in the rear and a 10 up front with those tires:eek1: 400hp 383 stroker.He said he was trying to sell it last year for 30k. The paint was bad ass though. The pics dont show much but it has flames on it out of a bed liner type of stuff. I cant remember what he said it was called and inside of the paint flames they air brushed their club logo all over in them.

    that truck has been posted on ebay a couple of times at least.

    i thought somebody mentioned a "runt" or "grunt" body kit or something. maybe its all custom. who knows. looks like a turd to me.

    All i can say is WHY? K5 bodies look perfect just the way they are, that truck would look 20 times better with the stock front.

    Its from the guys who used to make some fake hummer bodies in West Valley City Ut. near Salt Lake I think it is called Tatonka products they make a whole body kit for the chevy stuff. They told me last year at EJS that they would cut me a great deal and do it for only 40,000 dollars.:eek1: I think they left before I quit laughing

    if you took off the front fenders, ditched the rear flares, made the front end a little more wheeler-friendly (ie no steering stabilyzers or lights hanging down in front...) it could be a decent rig.

    Yea, until you spin one of those HUGE tires and it catches... and your spider gears go flying into the dirt. Uncapable, unattractive, thanks for playing... YOU LOSE:surepal:

    That thing is a total abortion. The front is ugly, and so is that rear bumper. And what were they thinking, the boby lines on the cab dont match fenders, and the front clip has a body line that dont line up. Thats another one of those guys who should be dragged out in the road and shot with balls of his own sh!t....
