I believe that's Gravedigger on here. I've known him for years. Insane rig.

Didn't Gravedigger have a really nice Blue Chevy truck too? I used to talk to alot of the Silver Lake guys when I had my Blue Ranger and the name sounds familiar.

Sounds right. He went to a hair dried LS now. It was in his garage in pieces last I seen it.

I know of them from around Hastings. I am pretty sure Steve Morris did the engine in it.

He's on the south side of Holland if it's who I'm thinking it is.

its not Brians rig, but I do believe the guys name is Art?
If so, he is the same guy that had the blue Ford stepside with a sizeable turbo motor in it for a while up there.

Cool truck for sure. Was looking for old 1st gen Jimmys on the sand, and found that one (and a nice 1st gen blazer with a supercharger, but no idea on the engine specs otherwise).

We are in the process of building our 1st gen Jimmy, and hoping to have it on the sand next summer. That turbo 6.0 is making about 75-100 hp more than my stroker motor will have.

Yeah, the fact that the title said twin turbos in the video kinda gives it away..

These are the other blazers I saw, which are of the same vintage as the Jimmy

Nope, that's not Art's. He now has a copper colored Blazer around the same year though, but it's a Gen I SBC with spray.
