Utilizing a healthy wheelbase with a massive set of 39.5-inch Pit Bull Rockers, he made Rocker Knocker look more like a highway.Starting out life as an '82 Blazer and slowly morphing into a pickup, tom Cherry's big whi Traditionally one of the first things to get axed on a fullsized trail pickup is the bed. And with a million different variations of tube, flat, and work beds, it's cool to see such a cleanly built custom rendition like the one Dirk Phillips made for his trail GM.Traditionally one of the first things to get axed on a fullsized trail pickup is the bed. Keeping it simple, Chris Holick's brown and white Blazer buggy is a rolling example of function over form.
