    I know its not what the majority of you guys around here like. But, damn I like it. Just change the tire to some V-tread tractor tires... and here come the bogs.

    It has mud flaps and a tag on the back bumper. I wonder what state he's from?

    I believe he's from Arizona. Truck is constantly changing/evolving.He's 19 or something.Does all the work himself.

    If you poke around the site some... you can see the changes it has gone through.

    Pretty impressive if he is 19.

    AZ truck

    He is from Arizona at least I'm about 99% sure plate looks like that and so does the stadium in his other picture and his four peaks pictures are in AZ. Lived there up untill Aug of '04. I think he accually passed me on the road once going the other way. Arizona has no vehicle inspection as far as safety goes, you NJ guys will like that, the have one lift law, your truck has to be under 13ft six inches they do like you to have mud flaps but that is it. You don't need fenders, windshields, doors anything if you run without a windshield you have to wear googles you can build a rock crawler put a jeep grill on it and register it as a jeep. I'm talking full out competion buggies. Had a friend who built one, tube chassis and all, put a grill from a 51 jeep and turn signals from the same and registered it as a 51 jeep. What the funny part is, is that their wern't people dieing on the street because their cars were unsafe it was less goverment BS to deal with and it was wonderful

    I haven't looked it all over but check the rear suspension, from what I see its just bigg as drop brackets and I don't see extra support. yikes? Pretty certain that there are pictures of that thing on Scary Steering from an earlier "form".

    On another side that air adjustable front shackle is trick.

    Part of me still wants to build a REAL big bog truck. Just it has such limited uses.

    HUGE motor... rockwells and 52 inch Terra tires.
    :D

    A real huge bog truck would be cool, as long as it didn't have a body and you didn't expect to drive it on the road. Just make a little cab and then tube from there like the guys from Alaska do.:grin:

    Nah, I still want a body... I want it to look like a truck still. Maybe S-10 or full fiberglass skin something or another.

    I think for deep bogs... you would be ok with some real wide 52 inch tires and Rockwells. Maybe stick to the 44x40 terras. :cool1:
