Twenty years ago 4WOR was filled with fullsize trucks with crazy graphics and moon visors. These days we are fill of trucks with 1-ton axles and coilovers. Or in the case of Dan Block’s K10, all of the above. Block wanted a show truck that reminded him of the crazy vehicles of his youth, but without the buckboard ride or poor handling commonly associated with show trucks. He shortened the bed and frame on his pride-and-joy K10 pickup, restored the interior, and added wild graphics and a moon visor.
Next, Hazzard Fab.Worx took over with a 1-ton drivetrain and custom suspension for the truck. “We love working with customers who get their hands dirty too,” says Luke Shaman of Hazzard . “Dan did the parts he was comfortable with, and we did the rest as his budget and schedule allowed.”
Under the sheetmetal, a modern Gen III V-8 routes power through an old-school TH400 and NP205 to 1-ton axles. Hazzard crafted a modern link suspension front and rear with King coilover shocks and air bumps that ride like a magic carpet. The only thing missing is a row of KC Daylighters across that roll bar.
