Blackhawks aren't really "for" any truck, the trucks are built around whatever you choose to run. Bilstein, Fox, King, Sway-a-way, all have different dimensions on what they consider a certain length/diamter, so the vehicle is built around the suspension to maximize performance, not the other way around.

That, and the cost of Blackhawks being around $2,500 a piece.

But look all so sweet. They TRUELY are for custom offroading buggies, and rockcrawlers.

I'd run 'em on my truck if I didn't have Kings. They run 100 degrees cooler than any other bypass out there, so you can pretty much say goodbye to fading.

You desert runner types you...doh I live in a forest, with a lake nearby that has sand on the beach...does that count?

How many points for each sunbather I hit?

Ohh...how I wish California was only a 2 hour drive instead of 2 days...

Come on out, we'll show you a good time. Forest is tight too, I've been on some pretty cool trails hauling butt through the trees, haha.

Oh, and sunbathers are about 15, it'd put it higher if they were mobile but since they're laying down the point count isn't very high.
