Longtime OFF-ROAD readers may remember Miggie Motorsports' custom-fabbed Bronco prerunner from the June '01 issue. That truck is still with the racing team and has since been joined by the Miggie Motorsports Trophy Truck. Michael Jakobson and crew bought their F-150 Trophy Truck from Walker Evans, although major changes have taken place since that transaction. The motor has been relocated 9 inches rearward, and only a few feet of stock framerail were left intact. The stock 'rails gave the Miggie crew accurate reference points to measure from. As with the Bronco prerunner, fabrication quality is topnotch and no expense was spared. A full two weeks went into getting the frontend set up just right. Trophy Truck No. 10 showed speed and consistency at Laughlin, averaging nearly 50 mph over the ever-deepening ruts and whoops of the course.
