    First I'd like to thank FWP (fred), MarvSpringer, Robzilla (rob) , Juanblzer and especially ORD's Dr. Watson for all their tech support on my insane rockcrawler/ prerunner project. Many of the items shown are my custom designs. The custom steering, rockcrawler body mounts, and to my extreme subframe all took months to perfect. This has been a project that has rivaled even the most in depth fabrication of the most extreme rockcrawler mechanics.

    Please dont be jealous. THis took a lot of preperation and money and the end result is an engineering masterpiece.

    Isn't it a little... ermmm... tall to go rock crawling with? Looks good though... just need bigger tires.

    Damm you all do very nice work. I wish I had freinds with that amount of Booty Fab talent.

    I wish that was my K5. But as always mine is never as cool as next guy's oh well.

    Oh by the way could you fab me up a steering setup like yours? Just to cool makes my Full hydro look like a kid made it.

    I really like the rock wheel chocks. Nice touch. I'm hoping this is a joke as well and if it is I'm thinking the names that were dropped probably wouldn't appreciate it.

    Dude... what a prick

    Why are you all being so rude to him? The man says he busted his ass to do this and is clearly proud of it. All you guys can do is call it a joke. If it is, it is... but you guys go out on a limb claiming it is when it might not be. I hope that when you guys finish your projects someone calls it a joke... you guys are pathetic

    dude, calm down :crazy:

    i DO believe the original poster was being sarcastic and trying to make a joke as i know marv and rob and have talked to watson on the phone and i don't believe any of them would be involved in such a project. there are lots of unsafe engineering principles on that blazer.

    I want to see him post a picture of this thing actually racing over a pile of rocks...full throttle. I wonder which part of the truck will make it to the finish line first...the frame...or the body:haha:.

    I had a really nasty reply typed out but I decided to be a nice guy.

    EVen if it is not a joke, he deserves to be chastised for that, its an abomination and unsafe.

    I am however 110% its a joke. The guys he named are very knowledgeable folks who wouldn't let their names or hands anywhere NEAR such a thing, except to torch it apart.

    alright... if you guys are sure it's a joke then I retract my previous statement and apologize to all of you. I was just feeling bad for the guy if it wasn't... that's all
