    Wasn't there a write up on this beautiful Champ in Turning wheels custom and modified section? It would have been in the last 3 or 4 years I believe.

    Looks sharp. Do you know if it is a Studebaker or a body plopped on another chassis?

    This truck was at the International Meet at Glendale in 2010. Very nice truck.

    I agree that the lift does make the long bed look less out of place on the Champ front end. Generally I prefer the stepside bed on the Champs.
    I'm not sold on those particular rims, but I wasn't consulted so I can't do much about 'em.

    This looks amazing. Does anyone know if that is the original frame/steering linkage? Also, looks like it has been converted to 4wd, any ideas on the components used?

    This truck looks even better in person. It belongs to Chris Eastburn from the Grand Canyon Chapter. We assume it will be at the International Meet for your enjoyment! Make sure to check it out in person if you get the chance.

    I love this truck. I think the wheels and tires fit the style of the truck perfectly. I am not normally a big fan of the wide bed on Champs, but here it looks really nice. For some it might be too nice to take off road, but for others such a truck would indeed be put to its proper use -- dirt roads, fording creeks, climbing and bouncing where others fear to tread. I'd love to give it a try.

    ....because you need the ground clearance for

    Mudding
    Four Wheeling
    Trail Riding
    Rock Crawling
    (The clearance can save your bacon if your climbing out of a creek, up a hill, or over a slab of granite)

    It's also a regular modification for the Ford, Chevy, Dodge, and Jeep crowd.
    Because rear end accidents may just end up wedging the owner's vehicle under the rear bumper(I've heard of this occurring a few times, particularly if the pickup had a large hitch).
    Because you need sight over the line of cars in front of you.
    Because speed bumps are hardly a problem anymore.
    Even here they are a chick magnet.
    Because the stock tires look horribly undersized with a lift.
    Because there's no need to jack the truck up anymore to get to the oil filter or it's pan.

    I really like this one. I also think the wheels look good on it. And again, it's a "chick magnet"[8D]

    Note how moving the bumper up cleans up the looks of the front end.......
