Beach, suntan lotion, and the fresh smell of diesel. This must mean summer is here and truck events are coming in hot…literally! But you know what sucks?

Well, let me fill you in on the upcoming BEACH truck event happening June 22-23. That’s right, its time to take a mini vacation and come to a show you can actually enjoy!

Grab that sweet tea and let’s dive a little more into what this event has to offer!

Shelby 1000 F350

1000 lb-ft Torque Stock!
From reviews the Shelby addition Ford F350 is suppose to produce 1000 lb-ft Torque emissions legal, but wait a minute, the 2018 F-250 & 350 series produce 935 lb-ft of torque! So what makes this truck anymore special other then the luxury of having the name Shelby?

Sum It All Up
In reality we all know this is just a luxury truck. You’re going to be paying for the name itself, when you could just go buy you a standard 2018 F350 and be just as good. I’m not knocking what they have done, the truck looks badass. I just think if they’re going to put the name Shelby on it, you would think the performance would be a little bit more Top Notch! I guess only time will tell if this truck will be something to be all hyped about.
Check out the video below for more overview of the truck.

We’re back at it again with another article about this truck, but being specific to Mr. @winston_cave himself. I cant help but write this, the internet is blowing up at this very moment. It’s literally post after post. So if you don’t know @winston_cave, then obviously you must know about the Joker. If you don’t know either of those, you should definitely get out more. However, you can have a look at the little before and after to get a better idea on how this article will turn out.
We all know today of all days is the beginning of LST (Lonestar Throwdown) and so far it’s been pretty cool, I mean some good looking trucks here and there. Just a regular event, nothing to short of a good time. Then you got this guy named @winston_cave who’s got this Ford F350 built by @skoop_33 (CJ Dunlap). This truck killed the truck game when CJ had it, ever since this other guy got a hold of it, it’s gone to shit. Claims made by @winston_cave himself that he’s taking to the next level, rebuilding it, blah, blah, etc… I don’t know the full story on what he had planned for it, I just keep up with his live feed which is pretty RIDICULOUS!
A few days ago you may have noticed I made another article called New Owner Of The Joker, Arrogant. This article will put the topping on my ice cream. Not only did this guy just be a utter, selfish, prick, but I guess he had what was coming to him. Now I do have sympathy for those involved, you know accidents are never good, and prayers are out there with whomever might of been involved. We are glad everyone is okay, but now this is about role this guy played during the accident.
All day he has been doing live feeds, even DURING the accident he put on a live feed, YES I said it. However only aftermath videos are available. I’m still waiting for the video, because few do say they have it. It’s unclear exactly what happen, the rumor has it that he was T-Boned by a 18 wheeler and rolled into a ditch. There is one comment on the live video that everyone on social media remembering, that when someone stopped to help, @winston_cave asked him, “I got some weed, I don’t think I’ll get arrested for it” Flipped his truck, and now concerned with his marijuana. I get it, you like to get high, who doesn’t? I just don’t think this day worked out for you like it was planned. Sorry to hear about your pro “build”, we’re looking forward to what you got next…..
However, even some of these aftermarket companies are starting to join in on the parade with these images below. Not to mention, the locals are having fun with some memes of CJ! (@skoop_33)
