    Thought I'd post a pic of White Knight as of this weekend.
    Tested the truck out and found the weak link. Twisted the center shaft. Fixing that and trying it again :)

    Man, that thing is looking Beastly!!
    Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't you in the Tough Truck Challenge?? With that Blazer right?? I figured you were, but the 90blzr threw me off when he said you weren't going to be in it. Anyhow, that's a sweet truck!!

    I have to remeasure. I think it came out taller than originally measured. Back then it was 8'6".

    No , no lottery, just nuts.:)

    No TTC either.

    Yeah, 410 gears. My ass is saved cause of the M465. If it was automatic ,forget it. It runs okay. The horsepower (550) also makes a big dif.

    I do need to get lower gears. That's next

    Looks good, but I would loose the 10" body lift and hack the fenders out till the tires fit and drop down to 42's and cut the entire top off, then swap the gears for at least 5.13's. But, that's me, I like rocks more than mud.

    It is a mud truck, not a crawler that's for sure.
    I'm thinking of getting a second one built with coils , dane 60's and 40's for next season.
    I wouldn't mind going for something a bit different
