    has anyone seen extreme 4x4 on spike tv lately?
    they are currently building an '87 suburban gorrilla. they just put 2 massive wenches on it and they said something about having an engine that has double of everything and its like haveing 2 4-cylinders engines on it.

    whats a suburban gorrilla? is it a model or just a nickname of their truck?

    and does anyone know if its 4w or 2w or what?

    Its basically a kit car version of a HUMMER, a fellow here in town built one and it looks pretty cool.

    Here is the website of the company that makes the bodies

    If you miss it, don't worry. They only produce 12 or so shows per year. The rest of the time, it's re-runs until the new season... YOu will see it enough to get sick ofit between now and then! That's why I don't watch them anymore. I have seen them all. My DVR is set to only pick up new episodes. It rarely records anything.
