There **** is crazy expensive there. I called them when i was looking for a body lift. they wanted 200 for the lift and 800 to install it. my buddy paid 6 grand for his lift and for it to be installed on his f150. I told him he was nuts him and i could of done it in a weekend for much less. I called them for ubolts 3 weeks ago and they wanted 25 a bolt. I laughted and hung up the phone.


Apple Hill 4x4 is way over rated. they were featured on Xtreme 4x4 a couple weeks ago.

Way to tacky drop all the crome dress up parts for functional equipment and it would look ok.

I don't get how it is that tacky.

It has a brush guard, tail light covers, lights, etc.

Nothing over the top.

i remember seeing a few trucks when i was at penn tech with all that applehill crap. to me they do generic work and u pay out the *** because they have a niche up there. i called em up for a bumper and they wanted over a grand for a plow like bumper. when i wanted to have one made like i wanted they said we only make em this way. needless to say i told em where to go. a few guys swear by them, me personally...blech.

Did they actually use the Twin Beam front? I don't believe that's even a full SAS (so to speak).

Why would you go to all that work and not even get a full Solid Axle up front?

I mean it at least look like a pretty clean job. I'm wondering if they just swapped a Ranger body over to a Fullsize frame.

Still looks like the TTB to me. And look at that bumper alignment, blah.
Obviously this truck doesn't see much off road. I assume the financier for this truck is concerned about looks, not off road capabilities. I bet even going on the grass was a stretch for him lol.

Funny thing is, they cleaned it all nice for the photo shoot, but forgot to scrub the blue off the white lettering lol.
