The Story

I bought this truck in February of 2017 when I was 17 as my first vehicle for $2000. It was completely original down to the tires. After dumping money into it to be road-worthy, it stayed unmolested until December 2020 when it was involved in a collision (picture in gallery). With the frame now bent I contemplated ridding myself of the truck and starting a new build but with some convincing of friends I had the truck repaired and decided that it was time to have some fun. This truck has been through all of my highs and lows, and now that I’m on a better place in life, I can really put the money into it that it requires to build the truck my 17yr old self always envisioned. Low, Loud, and Rowdy.
