GOOD THINGS COME

Tow Rig

Pa­tience uses this rig pri­mar­ily to haul Ti­tan Tanks many event ve­hi­cles around the coun­try. Since SEMA, that has been the Rock­star Garage Diesel Colorado ZR2, Pa­tience’s wife’s YJ rock crawler and a Ti­tan co-worker’s built H3. The truck is also used some­times to haul Ti­tan fuel tanks to deal­ers. All of this adds up to a ton of road time be­hind the wheel for Pa­tience, and he is stoked to spend so much time with this awe­some cus­tom truck.

Char­ity Hauler

Be­sides all the du­ties this rig per­forms at Ti­tan Tanks, Pa­tience also uses it to give back to a va­ri­ety of char­i­ties. Be­sides work­ing as ser­vice man­ager at Ti­tan he also builds cus­tom mo­tor­cy­cles, mostly high-end Har­ley David­sons and In­di­ans. This has lead him to giv­ing his time to or­ga­ni­za­tions like Bik­ers Against Bul­lies USA, Youth and Fam­ily Ser­vices, and Big Broth­ers-big Sis­ters.

This truck is used of­ten to tow a 40-foot en­closed trailer to char­ity events for Bik­ers Against Bul­lies USA. Pa­tience loads the trailer up with cus­tom mo­tor­cy­cles and vis­its schools, con­certs and char­ity events. They use the mo­tor­cy­cles as eye candy to get peo­ple’s at­ten­tion. They then teach peo­ple how to avoid be­ing bul­lied, and how to re­act if it does hap­pen. This tow rig, along with Pa­tience’s en­closed trailer, is also used as a chase rig for the an­nual Bik­ers Against Bul­lies/maverick Pub­lish­ing Ride to Sturgis. The ride for char­ity starts in a dif­fer­ent state each year and ends a week later at the be­gin­ning of the Sturgis Mo­tor­cy­cle Rally. To raise money for char­ity, around 100 cus­tom mo­tor­cy­cles and a few chase trucks make this trip each year. Last

NOTH­ING IS TOO PRETTY TO USE.

Road­wire leather seats were in­stalled for style and com­fort while a Lowrance GPS, Pi­o­neer head unit and H&S mon­i­tor keep Pa­tience up to date on ev­ery­thing go­ing on in and around the F-350.
