    Ok so this is not a chevy.. but.. its a solid axle true to life prerunner, that was intended to be a race truck. so it has all the hardware to play with the big boys..

    Lots going on here, were good friends with metul munky, the truck is a ton of fun to be in, kind of the ultimate have your cake and eat it too.. 3.5 bypasses on all corners with coilovers, 16/22 inches of travel F&R 5.7 hemi, soon to be procharged.. yea.. its our benchmark. So stay tuned because we have some cool stuff coming up as we work out the kinks in our squarebody platform for the more serious desert guy who wants this level of performance but not a newer truck.

    1st test with new Slick Gimbal and rear pole camera mount. It did not go so well, But there was some interesting footage right up until there was not.

    I had mine hook a tree and go 100 feet down a rocky hill I couldn't stand on. Luckily my son was with me and climbed down.

    I suck at getting pictures and video.

    I forgot about this one from this time last year, still have to be cautious of oncoming traffic and cutting tires but I feel like this is moving through the rocks pretty good for anyone that's been through that trail.

    That was cool. Makes me think The"Anti Prius" could hang with that run. Especially now that I just installed a Holley Sniper. I may need better brakes now

    FYI that video doesn't make it to the first obstacle with a name on that trail, just the bumpy wash on the way in.

    I need way more rebound dampening to get rid of the pogo lol. But it does land smooth, its just bouncy.

    Jesse's lands much more controlled.
