What is even more retarded than the video, is the fact that not once during that whole video did I see any use of 4WD, makes me wonder if he did that much lift to a 2WD truck.

pretty ridiculous. Hope his tires were cheap. And I love the body lift.

I think the ramps were due to the lack of 4WD also.

What a douche. NEXT time use 4wd and also noticed he kinda pu$$ied out while going up. If he kept his momentum (sp?) would have dragged right through it. Long wheel base hurt him in this case

Cool

It IS a 4x4 he just a) doesn't know how or b) is dumb and didn't want to engage it.

Replay it and the 2:15-2:20 point you can see the front drive shaft going to the front axle... Chevy in that year range didn't use the torsen (however you spell it) suspension bars it was standard a-arm and coil springs for the front end so it has to be the drive shaft you see
