Top Truck Challenge 2011 Competitors: Show & Tell

Buggy class: Check, Please
Fabrication plant manager Corey Timson seems to have all the bases covered with his incredible YJ buggy. Let’s see: Four hundred-horse big-block engine? Check. Beefed Rockwell axles? Check. Insane approach and departure angles? Check. A collection of fluid coolers? Check. It was wearing 49-inch IROKs when you voted it in, but now it’s running 54-inch Mickey Thompson Baja Claws.
