For The Love

One thing Dyer loves about his lifted trucks is get­ting to drive his kids, 5 and 8 years old, around in them. Af­ter SEMA he was able to drive the kids around town and to school a few times in the Ram be­fore the Mas­sachusetts weather turned on him. None of Dyer’s builds go any­where near the salted win­ter roads in Mas­sachusetts. He keeps them locked away in his garage dur­ing the win­ter months.

Dyer’s diesel truck builds only get lim­ited mileage on them be­fore mov­ing on to new homes. His fam­ily ve­hi­cle is a Mercedes GL450, but his lat­est ve­hi­cle ad­di­tion is the ex­act op­po­site of a lifted diesel truck, a Mini Cooper he uses as his fun around-town car. These two daily driv­ers help keep the miles low and the win­ter road grime off the truck builds.

In the end, Jeff Dyer only owned this Ram for a to­tal of about three months. He sold it to a dealer in Texas soon af­ter SEMA, who quickly turned it around to a happy customer. The new buyer ac­tu­ally traded in a Dodge Hell­cat for this Ram, and he uses the new truck as his new daily driver. Keep an eye out for it on the roads around Hous­ton.
