I am not a fan of lowered/street trucks, and especially Jeep trucks and '68-'72 Blazers, but I have always admired and thought your J truck was perfectly executed.

Everyone, no more name-calling or insults. If you can't all just let it go and move forward, then use your block lists. Otherwise I'm going to have to start getting serious.
