    Kind of brought a tear to me eye seeing them purposely rolling it. [​IMG] Would of made a great hard core trail rig.

    Yeah, it looked like a "keeper" to me. [​IMG] Did you notice how much the cab crushed, even though they rolled it in the sand? [​IMG]

    Was it the orange GMC? If it was, he told me a while back that it was pretty beat up already. He said it was not worth fixing anymore. Too much body damage from taking it on the "small rig only" trails. He said shortly after he put the 44s on the front Dana 44 was shot. He also sent me some pics of it when he had it up and running and it was a sweet rig!!! He was a good editor because it seemed like he always published fullsize rig articles.

    That bothered me a little too. That has to be the most worthless article thay have ever run. Those pictures really suck.

    You are quick to say how Cole Quinnel is a full size truck man!!! I totally agree with you. Cole is the main man! I have been a subscriber to 4Wheel&OffRoad since May of 1985! Yes, 1985. I have every issue since then. I am only 30 years old. I also have every issue of Four Wheeler since Jan. 1986 also. I got into Off Road Magazine in summer of 1990 and have all those since then too. I guess you could say I am more loyal to 4Wheel&OffRoad than the others. All are excellent magazines. But Cole really stands out more than all the other editors and writers in the mags. He really knows and loves his full size rigs.

    I was looking for that too. Then I noticed the site is still on the March issue. So, the April issue is not out yet on the site. Damn, I want to watch the video too!

    Yeah, I emailed Cole when I heard he was no longer going to be the editor of 4WOR and he was kind enough to write back with an explanation. I told him how cool his truck was and HE EVEN SENT ME PHOTOS OF IT!!! That guys, is what a good magazine editor is made of. I just hope the magazine now doesn't focus too much on Jeeps. It seems that I've seen quite a few more since he left. Maybe I'm just freakin' out.
