Dave Shulman started in custom trucks at the tender age of 15 years old. In 1998, while living in Orlando, Florida, he founded the ever popular “AcrophobiA” truck/car club. His first build was a body-dropped F-150 named, “Catch 22.” The rig was eventually featured in several publications, and was showcased at the SEMA Show in 2002 and 2003. After another build in 2004, it was time for Dave to settle down and start a family. Finally, in 2017, Dave returned to the customized truck market with the purchase of a 2017 Ford F-350 dually.

“I bought the truck off the Internet from California in February of 2017, had it transported to Phat Phabz with 32 miles on it, and I never told my wife about it,” he confesses. “I wound up on a business trip to Oklahoma in September and convinced my wife that we should stop by and see the shop Phat Phabz, as I heard they were building a new Super Duty. My wife actually knew I wanted to build one and said I should have bought one. This was the perfect plan so that she wouldn’t get mad!” Little did Dave’s better half know that she was staring at their next SEMA feature!
