Homebuilt HD trucks!
Dare To Be Different
Josh Jones likes to be different, hence the orange color of his '03 Dodge 2500. Actually, he picked the color to match his custom-built motorcycle. He uses the truck to drag around his race car, a boat, and some ATVs. He's even used it to pull other vehicles out of ditches and has gone out during hailstorms to give stranded motorists a jump. He's not about to baby this truck!
"She's working right now," George Clenin says, "but she cleans up real nice." George custom-built this truck's welding bed himself about a year ago. "She has a 3-inch lift and sits on 35-inch Wrangler Duratracs," he adds. The truck runs an H&S tuner with an AFE intake and has a Sun Coast Stage 3 transmission and a 5-inch MBRP full exhaust. "The best part about it," George says, "is the money she makes me!"
Legit Customs Cummins
Chris Logue just finished building this '07 Dodge Ram 2500, and he's excited about getting his truck into 8-Lug or Work Truck Review. The 6.7L, six-speed truck has many upgrades, but the big part is the 22 inches of lift Chris fabricated (and the 46-inch tires). "I still use the truck as a truck," Chris says. "I haul trailers and horses, go to photo shoots and shows, and drive it daily."
