Comments?

The rear overhang looks long.

Is 600hp stock for this rig or has the motor been modified to produce that much hp?

The C-16 and the C-15 twin-turbo could b factory rated at 600HP. Can't see putting one in an RV though. Less than 4mpg with no bennefit.

That overhang makes the wheelbase managable, and with the rise in the back probably not a issue. Although you loose storage space.

I can not understand why anyone would want SS lower panels when the whole thing is not SS. The trim around the back wheels is black, and the tank covers on the truck are black. It just does not look right. That rig would look 100% better if they got rid of the SS

Just MPO
