For some time, truck enthusiast Chris Batts wanted to build a dream truck and take it to SEMA. To achieve that ambition, in 2016 he traded in his Toyota Tundra for a Ford F-250 Diesel and immediately got to work. According to Diesel Army, Chris stated "I wanted a daily driver truck that was also sophisticated, it had to be an eye-catcher, but not over-the-top." We think he achieved that goal. His truck has a great look and still drives off-road and can tow. Chris says his favorite part of this build is the interior and the Roadwire leather.
