Terry Henrich of Maple Valley, Washington, calls this truck the Mule. It's an '84 Dodge D50. Terry cut 36 inches off the frame to bobtail the truck, and he handbuilt a 15-inch IFS lift kit to clear 35-inch Goodyear MT/R tires. Terry also handbuilt the front and rear bumpers, nerf bars, and ladder bars. Terry says the Mule gets him wherever he wants to go. Not bad considering how stubborn mules can be.
