AS YOU’RE READING THIS, I’M SURE YOU’RE AWARE THAT THE ALMIGHTY SEMA SHOW IS DONE AND OVER, BUT WHILE WE WERE PUTTING THESE WORDS ON PAPER, OUR FIRST ANNUAL CROSS-COUNTRY ROAD TRIP FROM FLORIDA TO VEGAS WILL BE LEAVING IN JUST FIVE SHORT DAYS. The original goal for this year’s cruise was to follow six freshly built trucks as they attempted the 2,000-mile tour to prove their roadworthiness and builders’ skills, as well as put the reliability of the parts they installed to the ultimate test. Unfortunately, plans don’t always work out and some builds were delayed for unforeseeable reasons. The delays, along with a record number of SEMA-featured trucks, left a few builders without a parking spot at the big show, but we will check back with them in some…

BUYING SOMEONE ELSE’S CUSTOM RIDE IS ALWAYS AN INTERESTING SITUATION. More often than not, there are some unexpected surprises, both positive and negative. For Lenny Buccellato of Howard Beach, New York, buying his already customized 2011 Ram 1500 was a dream come true. But, as a true truck enthusiast, there was zero chance that he was going to leave things well enough alone. The truck was already awesome as it was, but Lenny wanted to add his own personal touches to it so that he would no longer feel like he was driving someone else’s truck.

Just add that to the stack of two to three already in progress for miscellaneous owners and SEMA builds. Luckily, Jim and the Stone Cold gang have been doing this long enough that they can definitely manage having an abundance of to-dos on their plate at once, and still push the envelope more and more with every build. There are a couple of builds currently in the works that we wish we…
