If you want the formula for a wicked 4×4 truck, look no further than this 2500 Chevrolet out of Martinsville, Indiana. The owner started with an 86 3/4 ton chassis, added a 10 inch lift kit, BDS shocks and massive 40″ Goodyear tires. Then stuff a Big Block 454 under the hood with 3.5″ exhaust and rock and roll! There’s a lot more to this truck than that, but if you start with those basics, you’ll have one awesome 4×4.
