    That makes me mad. Why cant they give a poor college student such as myself that truck instead of wasteing it. It was a cool video though!

    It was only a hull of a truck, no drivetrain in it, and Colin said the body and the front 44 was trashed to begin with. I hated to see it go too, but the Rubicon had taken its toll I guess.

    I thought I was wrong once,
    but I was mistaken

    Just remember, there ain't nothin that can't be fixed!!!! (in most respects) Keep that in mind and it will make us all feel better. I wonder if they'll take bids on the tires...

    I believe they said they borrowed the rims & tires. If it's broke might as well have some fun with it. Don't get sucked into that "no damage" crap-it leads to trailer queens. I build stuff to have fun. If its not fun you're doing it wrong. Hey, I think I just got a new sig.

    I'm with you, I cried when I read the article and then watched the movie clip. I can't believe they did that!

    Didya read this part of the story? [​IMG]

    <blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr>

    And before you start whining about ruining a perfectly good truck, how come no one would buy it after months of trying? Hey, we took out the glass and saved it, and there wasn’t a bit of straight sheetmetal to begin with. So the General (as it has come to be known) is still for sale, less glass, engine, tranny, transfer case seats, and tires. Make us an offer we can’t refuse….

    What a bunch of CRAP!!![​IMG]

    They couldn't get anyone to buy it! If they were only going to beat it to death, why didn't they give it away. Looked like a good rig to me. I could have used it.
    Just seems typical ironically of the magazine itself - going down hill!!! [​IMG][​IMG]

    I get more and more bored every month with 4Wheeler, Four Wheeler, & Off Road. Just ain't much in them any more except the same stupid "What hits What fit" type story that comes up every 18 months. Then, they demonstrate how to beat the crap out of Chevy! That was informative!

    Brian 89 you are totally right! The latest issue of 4wheel & off road SUCKS - Totally worthless rehash of articles they've already done within the last year or two - what really gets me is when the run an article from 4x4 power and call it new!

    I know they did a towing issue just awhile back - am I wrong?

    Give it some time to load up, if you're using realplayer usually it will tell you it's buffering. It just took me nearly a full minute for it to load on my DSL connection, if you're on dial-up it will likely be slower. I that doesn't work maybe between all of us we can figure out how to capture the stream and save it to file and e-mail it to you.
