Our goal is to take this truck on the world-famous 2,000-mile-long Hot Rod Power Tour 2022. This year’s tour route passes close to my home, and we decided it would be the perfect first event for the build. If you complete the entire Power Tour from start to finish you are deemed a Long Hauler.
In Phase 2 we are going to throw out the original suspension components for a much better coilover setup, spice up the motor, and throw on some big brakes. The coilover suspension is not only going to help the truck put power to the ground and handle significantly better, but also let us adjust the compression and rebound at each coil for the different driving conditions we will face.
We can quickly set the truck up for road use or track use with the turn of a wrench. But first things first: It’s time to get this truck back together and finally on the road.
Of course this build and experience would not have been possible without the support of my wife, Lauren, who really understood how important this build was to me. Thank you to my Father, Wayne, who came over to give me a helping hand and who helped me keep the project moving along. Also, a huge thank you to the sponsors and partners that were a part of this build.
