That silver chevy is tits. Does anyone have any pictures? Is it the stock chevy frame or not? 4 link in the rear right? He moved the bed into the cab a few inches.

As John said it was Newhan's silver Chevy, but he sold it and bought his old Chevy that he rebuilt and painted red. I am not sure who bought it but I think I remember hearing that a friend or family member of Ragland's bought it.

I do have some close up pictures of the silver truck at home. I will try to post them later. And yes it has a 4-link and I am not sure about the frame. I think under the cab would only have some of the stock frame left.

Curtis, they moved the fuel cell up and moved the coolers and ran dual side by side spares standing out back.

Yes Robbys is I-beam. He bought it off the Rusich brothers. They sold it and had the red one built that was at Malibu Dans event.
