IT’S A MONSTER, ALL RIGHT
My latest gearhead project was by far the most challenging: converting my stock Ford pickup to a manly mini monster truck. I had tricked it out with a lift package, giant struts, enormous tires—the whole bit! When it was done, I couldn’t wait to take it out to show my friends and maybe even do a little “mudding.”
But as I was getting ready to drive it out of the garage, I came to the ridiculously late realization that my truck was too darn high to get through the door! With my tail between my legs, I had to take off the wheels, rest the truck on dollies and have a tow truck pull it out like a beached whale. Nothing manly about that.
