Build story (beginning to present): I bought the truck 4 years ago with a blown head gasket for 200 dollars. I fixed the original 2.2l and then I got the itch and it’s been uphill since then, bagged the front then the rear…and I still wasn’t low enough. So I decided to sack up and cut it up, now its bodied on 20’s (its set up to lay a 22).

Special thanks: First, my dad for getting me the truck for dirt cheap, my lady for her support and dealing with late nights and long hours working on the truck. Mom and dad for the support to finish it. Sean nullmeyer for the years of work on the truck without him the truck wouldn’t be where it is. Tom Stavropoulos and Kevin Klein for all the wiring help, without them I would probably have burnt it to the ground..haha. Christian Melendez for the bodywork, god knows I shouldn’t be doing it, haha. Nick Germano at Outkast Kustoms, everyone who has helped me out on this build over the years.
