Project Completion Date:
Frame number one hasn't been finished yet, and tubular frame number two is in the design process, so you know how that goes...
Special Thanks From Owner:
"Corey Miller and Seth Vanderzweep. Without those two guys this truck would have never become anything but a pile layin' in a field. Also, DATUM CO clothing for the help and support."
