SPECIAL THANKS FROM THE OWNER: “I would like to thank Billy McSwain, Greg McSwain, Pat Maxwell and Kyle Hix for coming to my shop at home and helping me see my vision through. Mostly, I would like to thank my wife. She has stood by and dealt with all that goes into building a truck. I couldn’t have done this without her.”
