Wow that thing is Fugly :eek:
Looks like it wanted to be a van put they forced it to be a pickup.
Then they added the ugliest mirrors they could find onto it just be sure your stomach was flopping......................

I agree the mirrors need some work, but overall I find the package to be 'brutish' looking.

- Super singles in the rear once the first set of duals go away. Maybe wrapped around 21" Alcoas to fill the huge rear fenders full of rubber and brushed aluminum

- A simple, single 8" chrome stack straight up on passenger side front box corner

- At least ~450hp on tap

Wonder if the front wheels would lift under a hard pull at the fairgrounds with a midtrack shot of NOS and the black smoke rolling...hmmm...

22.5 Alcoas are a minimum with the 24.5 Alcoas an option. The stock 19.5's are way to small for the 4500 or 5500's.

Agreed...especially if you buy a 4WD - they only come with 5.28 gears out back...!

6.5 holes in the bumper!

That's a standard chrome bumper on the C-series. The holes are handy to hold on to when removing the bumper. ;)
