A Florida Dualie That Does More Than Haul
Richard Rice took his worn-out old work truck and made it into a killer great white machine. After years of the daily grind, this '00 Chevy 3500 was put under the knife to lose the independent suspension and gain the height needed to clear big-kid tires. Now this wild wide ride can be seen cruising central Florida at the front end of a boat trailer, sled pull, or tug-o-war, not to mention buried frame-deep in the sloppiest mud holes. Just because it's retired from the daily grind doesn't mean life got easier. It just got more fun.
