Give a story from beginning to present of the build of the vehicle: I got the truck in 1995, I redid the truck eight times. When I started building the truck they didn't make anything for it, everything had to be custom made. with it being a six lug, I didn't have a good selection of wheels, especially any that would tuck. My truck got shot for three full layouts, it made cover of Tailgate and a lay out. Truckin Mag. also shot it in 2003. 2004 I was talked into redoing it, I regretted that the whole time. It went to six shops, every shop told me they could do it. Well the only shop that proved there self was "Low Budget Customs". They finished the bodydrop and did the full sheet metal interior. Then I decided to be the first mistu done on twenty two's, and that was a task in its self. "Low Budget Customs" rebuilt my front suspension and i had rear-end shortened four inches. I also had it swapped over to a five lug. I work at a body shop. "Perdues Paint and Body". So I did most of the custom body work, and I also painted it, with the help of Mike Prince at "Pete's Crazy Paint".

SPECIAL THANKS: There are a lot of people that help during the building of my truck. when my truck was shot for "TRUCKIN", I dedicated it to my father who had recently passed away. This time I’m dedicating it to Crazy Pete, my Godfather who has recently passed away. but if it wasn't for Tommy from "Low Budget Customs". My truck would not be here today, he took the time to finish it for me when no other shop would. My friend Moon and Taco who have been there through every change on my truck. Mike Prince for doing the air brush graphics. Perdues Paint and Body, for allowing me access to use the shop to do the paint and body work on my truck…
