Build Archive


Our glorious works of years gone by. These builds hold a special place in our hearts. Click below to check out the step-by-step process of each build.

Big Blue

With so many 7.3L engines still running strong, we wanted to show that with a few specific upgrades you could take an older Ford and breathe new life into her. We took our 2002 Ford F-250 Super Duty that we quickly dubbed Big Blue, based on its raised look and color and started off with some minor modifications and worked towards creating an efficient towing machine that would be capable of pulling anything we want to hitch behind it.

Elk Hunter

As an avid hunter who lives for the outdoors, Adam Westfall's vision for his 2005 Dodge Ram 2500 SLT was to create a bullet proof, off-road beast that would be ready for his next hunt. His end goal was to build a truck worthy to be called the Elk Hunter project truck.

Honey Badger

The source of inspiration for the Honey Badger project truck came from a viral video on YouTube called "the Crazy Nasty#S! Honey Badger" that in a humorous way describes the honey badger's ferocious defensive skills and its keen diet for cobra snakes. When it came time to name our next project truck (a 2002 Dodge Ram 3500 Cummins with over 200K miles on it) the Honey Badger was a perfect name for it. "The honey badger just don't care," the video proclaims. And we didn't care that it had a lot of miles on it either, so that's why we jumped in with both feet to make this Cummins a true head turner.

Mile Marker

When we first introduced our 2006 Chevy Duramax LBZ project truck, we posed the question whether a high-mile, late-model truck is something to steer clear of. It's not, and to prove it, we bought this truck with 118,000 miles on it and we built a daily driver out of it that will be able to handle any job we throw at it for miles to come.

Part I - Stage 2 intake, turbo-back exhaust system
Part II - 
Insights CTS, backup camera, EFI live tuning, truck cap, bed liner, front bumper, wheels
Part III - 
Powertrain, turbo

Road Treasure

From day one we dubbed this truck Road Treasure because of the owner's unusual hobby that sometimes seems to put his life at risk. Dave Friedli has made a second career out of scouring road sides in search of items that have fallen off vehicles. His findings, which he refers to as road treasure, range from ladders and tow ropes, to coolers and motorcycle helmets. There's just no telling what he might find during his daily commute to work. His goal was to take his 2003 GMC LB7 Crew Cab Short Bed and create the ultimate towing machine and the process along the way didn't come easy.

Part II
