When the economy took a dump a few years ago, the truck market seemed to take one of the biggest his in the aftermarket, but that is a changin’! We dig trucks around here, whether laid out on the ground, sitting high in the sky, or somewhere in between, trucks are cool. When we first saw this killer square body Chevy Blazer, aka Square Peg, at the 2013 SEMA Show we just about fell over. It’s our speed in every way, and I would die to have something like this in my garage at home. When BangShift Contributor Kaleb Kelley told us that the builder, Mike Losh, is about to sell this thing we knew we couldn’t afford it, but we sure were hoping. Check out the great photos below, and what Kaleb had to say about it.

Slammed trucks are in more than ever, and Mike Losh is a guy who takes them to another level. When he first started building bagged trucks, he hated seeing people “showing their tread.” This means that they just cut their inner fender wells so that they could get their truck as low as possible. This leaves the tires showing inside the engine bay and looks pretty tacky. As a solution for this, Mike started building custom raised inner fender wells for C10 pickups.
This is one of the trucks that Mike built to develop new inner fender well tubs for 1973-1987 “Square Body” Chevy trucks. This truck floored everyone at SEMA in 2013, and shut down every other slammed truck build there, and now it’s for sale. Mike’s 1987 GMC Jimmy is powered by a 5.3L LS motor hooked to a 4L60E automatic transmission. It’s sitting on a completely built frame and is slammed to the ground via Accuair air suspension.
This tucks one-off 22” Budnik wheels stuff deep into the fenders. The interior is leather with custom plaid inserts that give it an entirely unique vibe.
The interior and style reminds me a lot of his Cloud9 ’67 C10. This truck is put together with the best stuff out there.
Now he’s selling this truck to help pay for the next awesome SEMA build. Mike is asking $65,000 for the truck, but will consider $45,000 with a $20,000 trade possibly. If you’re interested, call Mike at (479) 599-9664 and tell him Kaleb from BangShift sent you!
