    being that fabworx is right down the street from me means i got to see this bad boy in person. I saw it a few months ago then saw this pic in the back of petersens this month. Tiny told me i can't divulge any info on it back then, but you can check out more of it in next months issue...

    what i can tell you is...double triangulated 4-link rear...with UBER beefy parts. 454 big block which they were building in past issues, obvious fiberglass fenders, dynatrac axles, 39" krawlers. custom everything.

    yeah when I saw it was when I was planning my 4-link and Tiny (fabworx owner) said to come on back and check it out. It was just a beater to start with, dented panels and what not, flat black paint, etc. But they had the underpinings done. Very nice stuff, fabworx does a good job, they are just mucho cash-ola. Inever stopped in to check in on it. But i'll have to swing by and see if it's still there now. Liucky punks get to do all the fun stuff :-D

    Not seeing the extent of the cage and bodywork, I would guess at least $50,000 :eek1: if the tubing is all chrome-moly and all the joint welds are TIGed. And, if those quarter panels were done from scratch.
    Very, very clean :bow: .

    be cooler without the body. Hard to imagine either that blingy paint or those front fenders lasting more than 5 mins. Shoulda just left them off and rattle canned the tube.

    The front grill is a 95+ gmc seirra grill. Its quite possible that its still a Blazer...

    i don't think there is any write up about the truck, just the motor in a past issue. I think there might be a glimpse of it in the ultimate adventure article this month.... As for the fenders, yeah i don't know what i think about them, it looks trick from the front, but with the stock sbed sides it's kinda off. WIth some kewl new matching bedsides it would be trick!
