    Thank you. The artist is really talented, and we worked well together through the design process.
    Awesome!
    So glad you like it.

    I wish I could take credit for the selection, but it’s the shirt brand that was issued to us for Trail to SEMA. I just like the feel of it and that it was made with US cotton. That first one has stood up to a series of washes (on cold).
    You bet! Happy to have one in the hands of a 6.5er.
    You really hit on it. The stories are what make our trucks interesting.
    For a 3 year old, that’s a solid assessment of something that’s an artists design rather than a photo. Smart girl.

    I’m so glad you like it, and have absolute confidence it will get used, well.
    Thanks man. It looks best when the wearer is shredding tires in a boosted 6.5-powered step side!
    Happy to share, and thank you again. It’s a very personal project.

    When my boys saw it, they pointed at the burb and said excitedly, “That’s daddy’s truck!” I told them mine would be that cool someday.

    They also say that about every truck on the cover of every LMC magazine. I guess that’s an indication of their deep appreciation for square bodies. #startemwhiletheyreyoung

    It’s that time of year when I prep for the annual granite run in central Texas. We’re hitting up Wolf Caves again, and fortunately, my checklist is short:
    • Replace a split 1350
    • Fix the Magnum shifter - keeps popping out of high
    • Change the oil
    • Charge the AC
    I like short lists.
