    Hey yall. Just wanted to say I got one of the best christmas presents ever! My rig was published in an article called 20 Homebuilt Super Trucks in the February 2005 edition of Four Wheeler on page 64. :D

    Alltho the picture they chose doesn't entirely match the description next to it. I had sent them some pics a while back and all the current specifications. But they used one of the pics in its transitional phase.

    heres one of the current pics i sent them. The Picture they used is different

    sweet grats!!! i dont subscribe to them but to petersons 4wheel & off road instead. i do try to get an issue each year that has the rides and all the specs from TTC. i like to get ideas from them sometimes. i am pleased that real world trucks are making it in the mags sometimes. im anti show rig myself. i feel if i spend $20,000 on my rig it will because of a caterpillar engine and a twin axle dual wheel rear end setup, etc etc.... not because i wanted to spend money on bling that wont help me do anything. keep up the good work!!! :saweet:

    Congrats, nice rig.


    Your front shocks are upside down. They will not function correctly that way.

    I read the article today.

    I saw your K5 today in my issue. I was slightly dissapointed in fourwheeler this month. There was a complete focus on trail oriented rigs, No clean, nice show rigs this month.

    I was however very interested in the article about the V10 twin turbo'd diesel VW SUV.
