Icon9 To: Zabeard.....

You had, an absolutely BEATUIFUL truck. Infact, I dont even like the color blue, but I really liked your truck...

Notice the passed tense...

Now to each his own, its your truck your money and we do still live in America so do as you wish... But for a long time I have bitten my lip and not said anything... Well, tonight, I am saying something..

I think what you did to your truck, is terrible.

There I said it...

Now that not to say I dont like you... I just dont like what you did to the one blue truck, I actually liked.

could you not just sent this in a pm?

I may have no agreed with all he has done but its still so much nicer as it has evolved and the best part is hes learned to do all of this on his own when he knew nothing when he started.

Much respect

Ya that's the sad part for saying it. I myself have mixed opinions but I agree with you to each his own. I see this being locked and deleted soon.

Regardless of opinion, no one can overlook the dedication, time, and skill that it took to reach what he has achieved.

Not everyone knows zach well.

I remember when his truck was a baby just like most of ours. We put a BL on it and 32s and was like that is sweet.

Zach then put a Super lift on it and 35s and we sat back and looked at it and thought Sweet!

Zach thought."This SL really sucks wheeling...hmmm"

Then came the day, SAS and 35s. Looked back and thought sweet!!!

Zach is to the point in his build that he wants function. He replaced the 30 with a 44. replaced coils with coil overs. so on and so on.

zachs front end did well, his rear end would not keep up. he has been wanting to re-do the rear end for a long *** time. he got the chance and ran with it.

In fact he is still not happy with the rear end but I he has it figured out.

what I am saying, his truck has function now for what he wants to do. Talking to zach he could really care less if it gets scratched. he could care less if it gets a dent.

he is not going to drive 50 MPH into a woods on purpose to tear it up. But if he where rock crawling and hit a tree I dought he would care.

He hurts it, he fixes it.

Zach is one of the few people I know that can build something for function and still make it look bad *** and clean.


If zach wanted a beauty queen he would not have hacked the rear end off.

He wants function and tries to make it look good as possible.

Quote from zach
"I really don't care, I just want to beat on it and when it breaks fix it and beat on it again"

IBTL is right. The countdown is ticking on this. The only reason it isnt already locked is I'm still standing here beside myself that Dave started a thread to complain about someone else's truck. The insanity of this is making me unable to find the lock button. So I figure in about 5 minutes (10:43pm), I will find it and push it.

Edit... Shane beat me to it. And I concur with his assesment of this thread.

I agree nothing I hate more then purpose built functional truck.

Is this an actual serious thread? What a waste of bandwidth.

I am still LOL...

but I dont really care, i didnt build it to please anyone else but myself. some people like it some dont. now that it isnt a daily driver all i do is tear it up and fix it. doesnt matter to me what others think of it. though i do like criticism so i can build it better the next time.

wow man i think we should start a thread and put a poll in it and see how many people love beards truck compared to how many people hate beards truck. me i love his truck. i wish i had the skills it takes to build something like what he did the time and money he has into his truck is probably more than i have made in my life time so far in my short 19 years.


Beard seriously man i respect all the work you do and the fact that everyone blows up when you do something and everyone loves it but you just stay cool and shurg it off like its nothing. your one cool guy and dont change man
