Dick Cepek West Coast Customs/X-Treme Toyz biult '08 Super Duty article

This is one bad '08 Super Duty!!! We featured it in the August '08 issue of DIESEL BUILDER which just went on sale at the news stand 7.15.08.

It was built by the guys at X-Treme Toyz and West Coast Customs for Dick Cepek to launch their new tire the "Crusher". I wrote the article but did not shoot the truck.

I hope you guys like it but as usual don't hesitate to tell me what you think about it!

Take care,
Chris

I agree, I'm personally not into the "skulls" theme that seems SOOOOOO prevelant today but I really do like the looks of this truck! The colors pop and it is a great looking truck with some very cool work! Also, the writing in that article was amazing!

I'm not gonna lie, I actually really like the interior, I'm not really sure why....... I'm in agreement with the paint, they should have just left it red. Did you guys put those tires to the test or did you just do the photo shoot?

No we didn't test the tires, it was just a feature article. I personally wrote the article and West Coast Customs supplied the photos.

Just an FYI, Cepek Crusher tires have skulls and crossbones for the sidewall treads, thus the skulls in the paintjob. It is a theme truck based on his new tire line.

Chris, you do have a way with words. The article was well-written and I really liked the interior, black leather and red suede. But as usual, the WCC team has gone over board. There's something called subtlety and unfortunately, they don't understand that.
