Toward the end of the fifth day of the 48-Hour C10 RideTech build at the Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, Arizona, the truck started and ran perfectly.
“The guys really worked hard to bring everything together by the end of the day, and the crowd was electric with anticipation as we waited for the key to be turned for the first time,” RideTech said in a news release. “We were suitably impressed with the FiTech EFI system; not only was it a breeze to install, the first-time startup went more smoothly than we could have imagined.

Going into Day 6, the truck is really coming along, according to RideTech. The StreetGRIP suspension kit is installed, the Currie rear end with Baer brakes and Forgeline wheels is finished on the back, and the No Limit fuel tank is in and the fuel cap is installed.
The Kicker stereo is complete, along with the Vintage Air A/C system and Classic Instruments gauges.
The coolant, power steering, and other systems have been filled with Prestone fluids, and the Lokar pedals are ready to be pushed to the floor.
American Autowire is nearly finished installing their harness, and the Optima Battery is being held down securely by the Detroit Speed hold-down. C&R Racing’s radiator is keeping things cool, and SO-CAL Speed Shop AZ has been supplied parts the build team has needed-some of those parts donated United Pacific Industries and available through SO-CAL AZ.
“Today (Jan. 19) we should see the final fitment of the Forgeline wheels with BFG tires, Hushmat installation, and Ringbrothers hood hinges,” according to the RideTech news release. “We may even have some other additions to the build; stay tuned to see how it goes.”
