Special Thanks From Owner
"Huge thanks to Matt Sabo of Fatties Chassis—without his knowledge and help, this truck would never exist, my brother Nick Rovansek (Co-owner of Ground Pounders Customs) for the stealth wiring, Jim Maneri for the custom lines and Grand National/S-10 hybrid wiring harness and input, John Reynolds, our very helpful unpaid apprentice who dedicated a ton of time to the build, and my dad for all the running around and painting, and a tremendous thanks goes to my wife Melanie. Without her patience and understanding over a 2½-year period, I wouldn't have had the opportunity to team up with these guys to create this truck."
