This build had different inspirations and plans over the years, but the original inspiration came from going to Indy Truck Bash with friends. I wanted to be low and fast, and those are the only plans that never really changed from the beginning.

I got the mini truck bug from Indy Truck Bash, and got the truck before my senior year of high school already bagged on 15's complete with fiberglass running boards and bed rails. It didn't take long to figure out everything needed redone. After paying someone to fix the rear setup, and it still not being right, we rented a welder, and with the help of some friends we redid the 4-link and frame notch, and put on some new 17" wheels just in time to drive it to graduation. It wasn't low enough so a 3.5" traditional body drop was next, followed quickly by a v8. I spent the next few years destroying body panels. After spending a small fortune on beds I decided it was time to finish the truck. It took quite a few more years, some of which were spent sitting in pieces not being touched, but with the help of friends, I finally managed to get it finished.
My wife Tiffany and children, Harper and Jagger, for keeping me motivated, and always asking me to take them on rides and enjoy it. Dustin Naylor, Chad "Alf" Dale, Wes Smith, and Justin Brown who all put in a lot of the time over the 18 years it took to finally get it done. Will Cochran for helping with body work, but more importantly teaching me how to paint and do body work so I could paint the truck myself. And finally my mom and dad for letting me take up their garage space for years.
