    Who owned that yellow shortbox from a few years back? The one that's featured on the TTC logo... I used to have the mag, but it seems it's been misplaced in either of a number of moves;

    If anybody could relay information about it, or a possible site/write up on the net, that'd be great.

    I seem to recall it had a 510ci. motor, and it was called the super bee or killer bee. Something along those lines. I've searched and came up empty handed...

    Thanks, Chad.

    He's from Michigan and I believe there is some club webpage that it is on.

    Yeah that was the killer bee. I can't remember his name but it was a hell of a truck. 700 hp on nitrous.

    I remember it. 8" lift on 44" boggers. bigblock on nitrous. that was a nice truck, and he wasn't affraid to use it. he went over the retianing wall into the tire pit instead of going down the ramp like everyone else. the movie was sweet, hear that bigblock light up when his tires hit the ground ohhhhhhhhh.....I want one!

    Bill Maskill is the guys name. I popped in my TTC 1999 tape and watched it for a bit. When he did the tire pit it was great, just water spraying everywhere and a ton of noise.

    I'm not really sure, I got mine for free from 4 wheel parts when I ordered a detroit locker. I'd say give them a try.

    What do you want to know? He is a very good friend of mine and a huge inspiration on the building of my Blazer.

    He no longer has the truck though. It was torn apart soon after TTC and all put into a CJ7.

    Yes, it is true... but the Jeep is simply amazing. Truely. 44 Boggers, 14 bolt, Dana 60. 510 BB. Coil spring front, 1/4 eleptic rear. Amazing.

    You should have seen it in person... let alone go for a ride in it. Was a blast. Had trouble keeping the front 60 together, but other than that it was a great truck.
