Part Chevy, All Mudrunner

Ever seen a flaming Cheeto in the mud before? Neither had we, so we were a little confused at first, but then Randy Swartz's friends went on to explain. The Flaming Cheeto was what we were there to see: It was Randy's beefy Chevy mudrunner.
Randy built his big Chevy at his own shop, Randy's Off-Road in Azusa, California. With the local mudpit of Azusa Canyon just up the street, Randy had plenty of testing and experience to make sure this was one sick mud whomper. Randy started with a '78 1-ton Chevy and used the bulletproof components to make his own mud monster. With 44s, 1-ton axles, and a big-block powerplant, and weighing in at around 4,500 pounds, this truck has the optimum setup to let Randy teach others how it's done.
