Thats a hell of a project builder, just needs about everything put in, I have everything! hahaha

I wonder how much hes looking to get?
Cage work and everything looks very well done, with all the work being done by Baker I would imagine that really does have 30K in it so far.

I wonder why he calls it a Trophy Truck. I've never seen a steel body, door slammer, Trophy Truck in BITD racing.

It sure is nice though, whatever it is

sure it can be.
It may not be the best on the street but as long as it passes emissions, has covered tires, lights and signals, mirrors, etc its street legal in most states.


Now a linked truck with coilovers doesnt always handle like a normal truck would, so alot depends on how its built.

A F-350 long bed dually is a bitch to park, a 4 door explorer is easy.
