The 1980 Plymouth Trailduster is an off-roader on which owner Garfield3G1 has spent countless hours upgrading.
The Trailduster has a four-inch lift and even with all the modifications you can read about here, amazingly the SUV is still used for common tasks like dropping off kids at school and going to a store. Garfield3G1 is proud to note that the truck has benefited from no expensive equipment or large shop, instead relying on hard work and lots of man-hours.
We'll let the owner take it from here:
"It is also used as our Mud Drag Race and Show N Shine Truck for shop advertisement. My father and I are both disabled and work together on our property, at our family shop, 3G's Motorsports and do all our own work. 3G's is short for Three Generations, which is made up of my father, myself and my 7 year old son.
"It has been tough keeping up with the big boys and big money in the world of Mudding, but we have managed to compete in over 20 local events, in five years time, and have proudly brought home a Championship, 3 - 2nd's, and 2 - 3rd place finishes, with limited resources and sponsors. We were recently bumped into the Modified class from Stock, after the new additions to the engine and increase in horse power. We also tour the truck at many of the local Show N Shine events for fund raisers at the High Schools and local car clubs, as well as the many parades for multiple functions. It is far more than a daily driver. It has been noted and videoed several times over, making a 150 foot run in under 5 seconds, 2nd gear, 4 low!"
You can also find this truck in our 2011 Truck Trend's Readers' Ride blowout in the Jan/Feb 2011 Issue and if you've like to see more, fallow 3Gs Motorsports on Facebook!
