    WakeBoarders truck is the white one. Its a '91 with 4 inch lift and 33's.
    K5_73's truck is pretty stock with some 32's and no lift.
    And this list explains why my truck is so special. [​IMG] This is the first time I've put pictures of my truck on this website so I'll also include my massive list of upgrades. The sad thing is, this isn't even close to the complete list. On this list I tried to leave off boring things like heater core replacement for example and smaller things. ** means that I have the stuff, but its just not installed on the truck yet.

    I know, I know. lol Its pretty bad. I had 2 other Blazers before this one and I still hate myself for selling each one. And I lost money when I sold them. So I figured I'd just buy my favorite year with a 4 speed and build it up, leave no bolt unturned and never sell it. That way I don't lose money and I won't regret selling it.

    So where were you wheeling? It looks like a bit of rain and you might have got to use your recovery gear some! [​IMG]

    Nice trucks, I love the full convertables!

    I see how it's going to be. You don't post the pics of my truck doing what it does and you don't bother to call me when you go out mudding. What's wrong with you? Geez, why does everyone have to be so insensitive? That's fine, NO HARD FEELINGS! I want to know why you didn't give me a call.....am I just to weird for you, or is it because Matt's annoying?

    Rene: It was in northeast Wichita...just kind of an undeveloped area. People go out there to fish and stuff. Yea some of those ruts were really deep and wouldn't have been too easy to cross if they were muddy. I did get to use the tow strap though. The black Blazer got high centered on his running boards. haha

    Alex: Man, I think you did more bitching in that last post than my girlfriend did all of last month. OK stop crying man, I'm just kidding. I haven't posted your pics yet because I'm lazy. I didn't call you about it because you didn't call me that one time you went to Augusta. OK just kidding again. It was a last minute deal. The guy with the white Blazer was in town from KC to get married and he just wanted to get some "action" pics of his truck. We didn't stay there too long since the black Blazer and mine had the interior ripped out, including shifter boots, meaning we didn't want to get in the mud. We just ran up and down a few hills and took some pics.

    Oh yeah, you also forgot to mention that those DEEP ruts are mine. It was pretty weird seeing you today going down hillside. I see the car and I think, "That's got to be Klunky, but, I'm in the ghetto." Sure enough, there you were. hahaha So, are those ruts pretty deep out there? The reason why I'm saying they're mine, is because nobody goes out there much anymore. Who knows, maybe somebody made them bigger. We need to go again. See ya!
