Our ’79 Chevy Luv Junkyard Jewel project came factory equipped with a three-piece rear slider. Although popular when you were a kid because back in those irresponsible days we often climbed through the slider into the camper, now it’s just ugly and leaks.
Welding is like any other skilled trade—it’s not something you can become good at by reading books or watching videos. It takes practice, experience and some patience (a good name brand machine always helps, too).
Afirst impression can forever alter your perception of a person, place, and especially a custom truck. The leading edge of your pride and joy is one of the first things people see, and it’s also the perfect starting point to upgrade and accessorize your truck.

One of the joys of owning a new truck is the paint looks great. In fact, it will never look better than it does straight off the showroom floor. There’s not a chip or rock ding to be seen on the unblemished surface.
Grille swaps are a simple modification that can subtly change the whole look of the front of your truck. We recently picked up a 2012 Ram 1500 and decided that our first modification would be an aftermarket grille.
As truck owners, we have all suffered through the following scenario. We’re at the home improvement center and just bought something that is slightly longer than the bed length with the tailgate closed, or we have pretty flowers, umm…delicate cargo, that we don’t want to slide around in the bed and get damaged on the way to the job site.
Every year we climb up on our roofs with 10 or 12 tubes of outrageously expensive RV roof calking. We spend hours covering every little crack, seam, or hole we can find. And we’ll never get them all. Sorry, not gonna happen.
The Ultimate Tow and Work Truck project keeps moving along, and this time we’re detailing the installation of front and rear winch-ready bumpers with the Integrated Warn PowerPlant HD and Superwinch Talon 9.5 winch.
