    Welcome to the build thread!
    (Under Constant Construction)

    Reason Behind Thread:

    A long term build dedicated to my father (original made back in 2016). After his fight with a sudden case of cancer, i decided to keep and build the truck up as a family heirloom that wont be going anywhere.

    Story Behind the truck:
    The truck came into our lives right around 2012 during my early days of highschool. If i recall, it was bought from a family friend with exactly 200k miles on the odometer. The truck had always been used as a Daily driver and overall in perfect shape in regards to maintenance and records were kept throughout its life span. So, now that we understand how the truck was obtained, we shall dive into its current lifespan and all the knick knacks that came along with it.
