A WEEK OR TWO BACK, I DECIDED TO TAKE SOME TIME AWAY FROM TRUCKS FOR A DAY AND HANG OUT WITH A GOOD BUDDY IN MY TOWN WHO HAS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS INDUSTRY WE ALL LIVE AND LOVE. CJ and I spent a full day cutting and welding a super cool custom fireplace, and he even let me run some beads with his welding equipment. A full day of no phone calls, no emails, no PMs and definitely no corporate meetings. Just a solid day of pure people and absolutely no jack stands. We should force ourselves to do this more often, but who has the time for it? It’s always hard to justify time away from work with deadlines looming and hundreds of unread messages filling each…

BUILDING CUSTOM TRUCKS FOR A LIVING SOUNDS LIKE AN ABSOLUTE DREAM, RIGHT? Who wouldn’t want to turn their favorite hobby into a business? Well, for those who have done it in the past or are currently neck deep in the reality of the situation, the general consensus might warn possible onlookers to “be careful of what you wish for.” While working on trucks every day can start to feel like more of a job than a pleasurable escape from work at times, the lucky souls who get to dirty their hands on the daily still wouldn’t have it any other way. Now, the big changeup that comes with turning trucks into a career is the time (rather, the lack thereof) spent with one’s own personal truck. When paying gigs take priority,…

WITH EVERY TRUCK PROJECT WE TAKE ON, IDEAS AND CONCEPTS FLOW LIKE WATER FOR HOW TO MAKE EACH ONE CUSTOM AND UNIQUE. Even with an unlimited imagination and an amazing group of friends to help, we don’t always get to incorporate all these great ideas into our current project. And sometimes those ideas need to be sealed tight in your own head, because the truck you have now won’t suffice and you definitely don’t want to see someone else perform the mods that you came up with. This was the case for Bryce Belanger throughout the last 12 custom vehicle projects he’s owned, but it was lucky number 13 that set him loose and gave him his time to shine. “BRYCE WANTED TO DESIGN HIS OWN TRUCK FROM SCRATCH WITH ALL…
