    Well from what I recall, it had 5-ton rockwells, full hydro 4wheel steer, big ass leaf springs all around. I believe it had front and rear winches, one was 30k and the other was 15k. Im pretty sure it had a big block. Thats all I can remember right now.

    I'm laughing right now b/c those little aluminum steps are bent up into the door. But that is most definitely a hoss of a rig.

    Actually, I was thinking that you'd push the tires all the way forwards/rearwards so that there was a 0* approach/deproach angle. Driving straight up walls is fun!

    The rear end has 12" lift blocks, but it is actually two sets of 6" blocks stacked ontop of eachother.

    Rear winch is 30,000 pound (15 ton), the front is a 15,000 pound (7.5 ton) winch. Both are on a PTO setup.

    4 wheel steer, with full hydro for both axles.
    Pinion brake setup on both axles.

    Total Lift is 24", they don't say how exactly though, because there are 12" blocks in the rear, 16" lift springs in the front, and a lift block (they don't give you the size in the mag). So nothing really adds up.

    The engine is a 468ci, with a Holley 770 Truck Avenger mounted on an Edelbrock Performer II intake manifold. It's got Hooker headers, and Flowmaster MufflerS. They put the S in, so I am assuming the truck has dual exhaust. But you never know... could be a typing error, there isn't a clear shot of the under carrage in the mag.

    Yeah I know what you mean, blocks scare me, but stacking them would make me scared to even flex it out.....

    I wonder how many sets of rear springs he goes through in a year????

    that thing is pretty much useless unless its in mud. i think its a mix of drop brackets and massive lift blocks.
    i saw it at a local mud bog and it made me sick that it took up a spot in ttc
