    Im sorry but I have to disagree. I think its a disgrace. A rig meant for towing...turned into a useless show truck.

    I don't know what the heck is wrong with you guys. There seems to be some of you that can't appreciate something if it doesn't have a dent or some big meats tucked up underneth it. This is an incredible rig and with the bb454 it would tow great. Just because you may use it to work doesn't mean it has to be ugly.
    I just spoke with the guy and he is the inventor of the coffin muffler and is stationed not too far from Fresno. Very cool guy.

    That I would sure keep clean . But I would keep it clean AND use it :D

    Thats the ultimate goal with my Blazer when the trail rigs done , fix it back up and drive it some more :laugh:

    I remember seeing musclecars driven on the streets of Detroit as a kid , all vehicles must be used , no matter how rare or purty . You mess it up you fix it . Thats also why we have full coverage :wink1:

    Beater: [​IMG] It's not our fault that you don't like one ton running gear and a big block. Don't worry though you'll grow up one day to enjoy the finer things in life, until then have fun with the 1/2 ton stuff.


    I couldn't agree more ryan. Toss a gooseneck on that thing and get to towing some stuff.

    I'll be interested to see what the morning crowd thinks of it as it is obviously one way or another. No in-between on this truck.

    Umm, lowered like that, you couldn't tow much across a speedbump, or for that matter, the highway :rolleyes: That ain't a truck to work, that's a truck to show.

    I appreciate stock 2WD's with clean bodies as much as the next guy ... just spent the weekend welding up some spots on my tow rig's body and re-painting... but it's not lowered, and all chromed out. :wink1:

    WOW, i can just imagine the negative comments i am going to get when the cruiser dually i am building is completed,,,,lowered with a small block,,,,go figure,,,

    oh wait, i think i hear it allready,,,,


    usless truck, can't do anything, won't tow with a small block,,,:rolleyes:




    as i keep telling people, it's not being built for towing 4 cars on a 45' trailer, just for me to cruise around in it with, something with a little nicer ride quality than the Burb.

    anyhoo, have fun:p:

    funny, real funny.

    mind you, the only 1/2 ton stuff i own is under my donor truck...

    K20, C2500, and a D44/14FF going under the 1500...



    hmmmm... 3.08s and 38.5s sound like a good idea to me. :haha:

    lighten up a little man. :D

    Of course it is, can't crawl to save it's life, can't tow anything, slower off the line than a snail and blows up the transmission. You ought to try it sometime. ;)
