When we began searching for more women and builds to feature on our website, we realized that there needs to be an outlet for those of us, who are working hard on our build! Build watch, is exactly what the title says it is. This new series is all about women who we think deserve to have some support and attention with their build, but are not QUITE ready for a full feature, because their truck isn't quite where they want it, yet. We will try to select two to five women (or men) a month to share with our readers. You can also send in your ride HERE, we'd love to learn more about you and your build at whatever stage it is in!
Without further ado, lets start talking about these women with their trucks! I mean, that's why we're here, right?!
TAYLOR VAN HOOSER
Hooser's F250HD, as mentioned before has a 7.3 liter diesel motor in it. A four inch lift has it sitting on thirtyfive inch Cooper Discoverer STT Pros, with a completely rebuilt and powder coated rear axle. She tells us while there is not a lot of special mods done under the hood at this time, it does have an upgraded air filter, a high idle IDM and she is preparing to purchase a built turbo, and putting on an electronic fuel system. The interior, is currently stripped. Her seats are getting reupholstered, shes getting new carpet and a new headliner.
She has a long list of goals for her truck, but the major ones are a new paint job, completing the interior, and sooping up the motor. She tells us that she could literally write out everysing goal and want for the truck, but that would make a really long article!
This south Florida Doll also grew up around trucks! Janna comes from a Ford loving family, in which her dad drives a F150 while her uncle drives a F350 with a 6.7 Powerstroke. She tells us specifically, are love of trucks began when she was around six years of age, her dad would put her in his lap and let her "drive" around the neighborhood in his 2004 F150. Volz would claim that truck as her's, as a young child, that she was letting him borrow it, until she needed it back!
We have enjoyed getting to know these ladies more, and genuinely can't wait to see where their build goes, and where life takes them as a person! We hope to soon, see them on our website as full, individual features, articles on the events they attend, and more! Thank you Janna and Taylor for being a part of the first installment of this new series, Build Watch! You guys were and are a pleasure to work with!
