The Elk Hunter Part 4 (Slideshow)

Adding those needed touches

July 2013 Build Brady L. Kay

The transition from a stock 2005 Dodge SLT 2500 crew cab long box to where the 5.9L Cummins sits today has been quite a journey for Adam Westfall. But his trip is far from being complete. As an avid outdoorsman, he's put a lot of thought into the upgrades and modifications on the project truck known as The Elk Hunter. By the time hunting season rolls around this fall, his Ram will be nearly bullet-proof and ready for the mountains.

You're only as successful as your equipment when it comes to hunting and no one understands this better than Westfall. If his truck isn't dependable, then the season could be lost and that means an empty freezer for a family who counts on a successful hunt for food. Each step of this build has been precisely calculated so when complete, Westfall will have exactly what he needs to get where the big elk roam.
