    The only thing that would make Adam's truck sicker is if the color code was 3K4

    Having seen Adam's truck in person, I have to say it is the cleanest build I have ever seen.

    Buuuut, a custom 3 link SAC wins it for me:D

    Boxrocket is definitely a sick truck, but the coil sprung SAS would be ridiculous to drive, especially with fr and rear lockers.
