Fella from Canada had this truck made up at a local shop. Says he knows of four others in that area. Just saw it in an RV park in Tucson.

That is an AWESOME BUILD!!!

I stumbled on this site Home Page several years ago and wondered... Where's the one for the Dodge???

These are pretty cool, but I like what I see posted above!!!

Edit: I bet that guy's pretty tired of being held up in conversation while rushing to pay for fuel and being delayed constantly from getting where he needs/wants to be because he has to explain all the details every time he stops... LOL!!!

BTW... Did I mention that it looks good???

I met him in our RV park. I can tell you that he likes to talk about it.

He told me more than I understood, and far more than I can remember.

Just a minor thing - title notwithstanding, that's a Kenworth, not a Peterbilt. Nice rig, at any rate - wish it were in my driveway.

No no. The owner's name is Peter.

Peter built a Kenworth and a Dodge.

And it's not for sale either. He knows what that Ken is worth.

I'll stop now.

Nope. Saw his Dodge taillights a few weeks ago.

Maybe you can contact him. He lives in Canada.

BTW, I just looked at the website you posted. That one is a Ford body with a fiberglass shell. Whereas this one is a combination of an actual Kenworth and a Dodge. You probably knew that, but the next guy might not.

I think he mentioned using JBWeld, plus some hot glue for the trim.

I offered to trade him for my F350. As I recall, he wasn't towing much of a fifth wheel. I figured I needed it more than he did. He declined.

I think you'll find those are aftermarket, and likely not quite legal, taillights, and I believe that's a Ford box, not Dodge.

But a real nice truck all the same.
