Release #1

Vehicle Name: Bully

Designer:  Gary Ragle Designs

Build Hours:  8516   Feb-2018 to Nov-2021

Debut:  2022

Full spec list at end of BLOG

 

We detailed Bully last year upon completion, but had to put in some time getting the paint back to the condition needed for display, as well as over 8 ours of tire cleaning to get them perfect.

 

“Bully” is a K-5 Blazer that is inspired by the owner’s history as a professional baseball player and encompasses some really cool interior features like the baseball mitt seats.  The endless amounts of awesome custom parts sets this build off compared to any other K5 I’ve ever seen.

 

The custom multipiece HRE wheels are reverse mounted to hide the hardware. These wheels may look familiar, as they were the same ones used on the rapper Futures green k5 Blazer build from last year that we detailed. See image below 

 

This Supercharged LS3 engine build puts down a whopping 1200 ponies to power the super meaty tires.  Those HRE wheels and monster Cooper tires is a custom set of camo pattern carbon fiber flares in a matte/dry carbon style.  The front end sports a fully machined front grill, machined intake scoops and endless custom bits that make this whole truck one off.

 

Check out the following sets of pictures from David Heller of Centerscene as well as pictures from us working on it over the last week.

 

The next release is the BIGGEST one yet and drops in 30 minutes……GET READY!
