From the next you can obtain a far better view that the large "69" number decal ~ above the next of the doors. Right above the decal top top the driver"s door is Billy Bob"s name hand-brushed. You can likewise see the crew in the back. There is likewise a hand-brushed "Coyote Powered" manuscript on the tailgate as well. The tailgate also features the tail-panel band insert. The rear bumper is tubular just as the front. There is likewise a light bar. Friend can also see the tubular step-bars in this shot. It"s tough to judge the size of the elevator kit. However you can tell it is lifted. My guess would be around 4" - 6" inch lift kit to be used. The tires are in the neighborhood of 35" - 38" inches.

Goof

According come a post on moviemistakes.com the front drive pillar is missing. Ns haven"t watched this for myself, therefore I"m gonna need to watch it again to verify. However It wouldn"t surprised me the a information like this go unnoticed in a Hollywood production. I discover it kinda funny. But it doesn"t take far from the thin awesomeness that the truck or the movie!

Final Thoughts

I made decision to execute this post, because my brother had a 1984 Chevrolet 4x4 Pickup (SWB) in the beforehand "90s. It was a near replica that Billy Bob"s truck, long before the movie to be made. It had actually a sweet spring hand-brushed script that claimed "Summertime Blues" ~ above the tailgate. The shade was an exact match.
