I've been getting more than a few requests lately for more information and pictures of 4wd trucks. So to give the viewers what they want I've decided to add a 4wd truck page to my Photos page this month. Since I'm adding the pictures this month I thought a 4wd Photo of the Month would be an approprate way to honor all the 4wd pullers and fans.

This was the original Orange Crush, a 1969 Ford Boss 429.

The next truck built was a 1979 body style Boss 429
