FINANCIAL MISTAKE

A 700HP, CUMMINS-POWERED OBS FORD

DIESEL WORLD MAGAZINE

It’s true that you don’t have to spend big money to build the truck of your dreams. Even though Tyler Turay lightheartedly refers to the project shown here as a financial mistake, his ‘95 Ford F-250 is actually living proof of that statement.
