5/18/09 - Expecting to take delivery of the truck
tomorrow. I started the project myself by pulling all of
the ICE components out. Then quickly realized I didn't
have the time to get it done in a reasonable amount of
time. So I hired the guys at Duke's Garage in Westminster, CO to finish the job. They have done an amazing job and I can't wait to get it on the road.
