Dream scenario..... HOOT finally makes it to a BAJA race. While chugging Tecate's and quickly forgetting about Kentucky as the trucks wizz by. The ultimate 4 wheel drive, a FSJ (My forever fav since 1976)comes hauling serious butt down the track at him. A stepside to boot making the blood pressure explode. In a roar from the 401/th400/Quad(totally cool) set up and a major dust cloud the truck disappears down track. HOOT craps his self.
I hope I get to see this truck race in the future, I'll be wearing Depends just in case.
Best of Luck,
HOOT

Great to see this truck and to find out it is close by. I am building a pre-runner like this for our race cherokee. Need to find out if he still runs this truck or not. thanks Tim wiley-moeracing

Yep, I too have a love of the Honcho step-sides. I've built several street/pre-runner versions of them, all based on the race trucks of the past. Long live the "Old-School" thunder trucks.
