Counterpoint: How To Make Your Semi Into A Pickup

Illustration for article titled Counterpoint: How To Make Your Semi Into A Pickup

Yesterday's post on the Tennessee fellow who converts pickups into mini semi trucks brought note of a competing business from Kentucky: Turning used medium-duty work trucks into "Big Ass" pickups. Like all southern rivalries, someone's getting called a sissy.


Owner Mike Powell of Salvisa, Ky., takes 2 or 2 1/2-ton work trucks, shortens their frames and drivelines, then grafts a dually pickup bed on the back with a subframe. Standard features include sass for those who go the Lil' Kenny route:

If you are the type of person who is happy taking a little 1/2 or 3/4 ton "baby" truck...throwing away ten to fifteen thousand dollars trying to add enough parts to make it LOOK like a big truck...perhaps you should visit a more suitable site...maybe, or someplace like that.

Thanks to an unfortunate "DIVORCE FORCES SALE" note on Powell's site, deals appear to be at hand. (H/T to Bonhomme7h!)



COUNTER-COUNTER POINT: Power wheels big rig. For the man so confident in himself, he drives a tiny big rig around town.
