MBRP DRIFT TRUCK...Procharged LS7 1000RWHP EST.

As many of you know, we are working on the first ever drift ready truck. We have been building it for the past year and are getting closer to completion. This thread will be for updates and info on the build process. If you have questions, feel free to let me know and I will do my best to answer them. Here is a photo recap of the progress thus far:

So what all is getting done to this Colorado? And do you have any high resolution pics of that first rendering in like a 1900x1200 or 1680x1050 size for a wallpaper?

Re: MBRP DRIFT TRUCK...Procharged LS7 1000RWHP EST.

Why aren't you going with the MT Sportsman's on the rear anymore? I would think they would be bad for drifting, but why make the frame fit them if not using them?

Wanna sell them? I need some for mockup.

LOL wellllll, for me im not FULLY happy with it, It rides great and all but doesnt handle worth a crap lol, I can see why theyd use it here to keep articulation down to force it to slide out like that! Not sure if thats why they used it or not, kinda like to see some input!
