The Story

Grandpa bought this pickup brand new in 2004 and it was used on the farm until 2011 when he passed. I purchased it with the injectors out and fixed it at age 16. In 2014, it broke a ring and scored cylinder. I rebuilt the engine in my uncle’s garage at 18 years old. In 2015, the transmission wiped 2nd gear band and I put in a comp1 from Firepunk. This pickup is what got me into the diesel industry. It’s been an ongoing build since 2012 and still continues today. I’ve personally done all the work including mechanical, interior, exterior, and under the hood.
