When we spot modified Mopars we're all over 'em. We found this monumental '04 Dodge Ram 2500 at the Summer 4-Wheel Jamboree in Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania. Then again, it was kind of hard to miss with its bright red paint and 21 inches of lift. It was also hard to miss Tony Bianco's enthusiasm for his rig that he calls "Bulletproof." You see, Bianco is an amputee and he built this award-winning Ram with the help of other amputees. This fact makes the truck monumental in more ways than one.
