This gnarly workhorse features a custom-built flatbed with plenty of tie-down points (all placed like a guy that has used tie-downs before would place them, usefully), under-bed toolbox and storage compartments, and an easily removable, forward flip front clip. The cab stays cold (or warm) with Vintage Air A/C. The interior is custom red and black with updated seats. The truck was built by Brian Garner, Roadkill Customs’ shop foreman
There is a crack in windshield. The driver-side window also has a crack, and does not roll down. There are currently no seat belts in the cab.

The front clip completely separates from the chassis by pulling two hitch pins and quick-connects for the front lights…
Lifting the Cab off with a modified …
With a little creative modification to a cherry picker (engine lift), I mounted the “crane” to the bumper of the F-350 donor truck. None of the parts were modified to the point where the hoist could not be put back together…
After disconnecting everything, the cab was ready to be plucked off the chassis. From the time the lifting began, it took no more than 10 minutes to accomplish the cab removal — alone.
