    That is actually a re-issue of an older kit. Still a awesome kit though. It was previously released as the "Fall Guy" truck. The Brown GMC from the TV show. You can just see the line in the bed just behind the cab that was for an access door as it was on the show. Funny thing is the truck in the show was a longbed and the kit has always been a shortbed.

    Should be available at most hobby shops everywhere. That is if there is a hobby shop near you. They are a dying breed just like good local parts stores (not autozone)

    I saw one of those at wal-Mart the other day. It was about $10. Might check there.

    The Mad Mudder is a modified 76-79 Blazer. The axles are a little wide and you need a different hood and rear roof. But it can be built to be a 'normal' K5 with some skill. I have this model all most finished to match my truck.

    There are even scale TSL Super Swampers

    I have the "mad mudder" I built a while ago. I need a set of those swampers for a 99 SAS I did. Where can you get them, besides ebay?

    This is the only place besides Ebay that seems to have them instock.

    I have heard they may be having copyright issues with these. I bought mine off Ebay for just a little less.
