We tend to over use words like "ultimate" and "dream truck" when we're searching for a way to best describe projects that, for a lack of a better word, are simply amazing. But for a guy who started out as a diesel mechanic in the Army when he was just 18 years old, Shane Hayward's Dodge Ram 2500 Laramie Longhorn Mega Cab is truly one of those trucks that you need to see to believe. And thanks to a lot of posting, a lot of people online have seen his build each step of the way.
Hayward began to catch our attention when he first started posting photos of his Ram on the Diesel Tech Facebook page. In just three short months he had transformed his stock 2012 Dodge into a fully-loaded beast, thanks to some sponsors as well as good friends to help him with the work.
