    I sent in my truck information to truckworld.com to be posted in readers rides, and there is the write up they posted. I thought it was quite funny myself.

    <blockquote><font class="small">In reply to:</font><hr>

    Jeff Bluemel, you may know him as "The Solo Wookie" of Lyman, WY, drives this 1989 Chevy Blazer whenever the Millennium Falcon is down for repairs. The Blazer (not the Falcon) runs a true dual exhaust system running all the way from the Hooker headers back to the Flowmaster mufflers. In front, a Dana 44 with 4.10 gears and disc brakes is spinning a set of Eagle 121's shod with Big-O XT 35x12.5x16-inch tires. Out back, a 14-bolt rear-end is attached by way of a full-floater suspension system. Jeff checks it all with a four-inch BDS lift and BDS shocks. VDO gauges - minus a Jump Speed indicator, include a programmable speedometer.

    Full floating suspension must be from that '66 Camaro I've got in my backyard with the 3 speed powerglide, blinker fluid pump, and muffler bearings in need of replacement.

    ....everybody knows that a full floating suspension is what all the serious mud boggers use! It "floats" on top of the mud and helps keep you from getting stuck....It's filled with either Helium or Nitrogen to make it lighter...(Of course, Helium is the lightest so that's the most expensive option to get)

    Jeesh....you really got spell everything out for some people! [​IMG]
