Custom parts set this Bulldog apart from the pack

If you’re guessing that Bulldog Enterprises might have something to do with Mack Trucks, you’re right.

“We’ve always been Mack people,” says owner Scott Lynch, whose fleet includes four or five customized Macks. “We run them over the road and we custom-build them ourselves.”

One of them, a 2010 CHU613, has one of the coolest colors among all the trucks in the PKY Truck Beauty Championship at the Mid-America Trucking Show, which starts today in Louisville, Ky. Lynch considers the turquoise an “old-school color,” and notes the black top color is actually a dark metallic gray.

Lynch did the custom body pieces himself with the help of his wife, Angela Lynch, and their shop. “We’ve got a paint booth and a vinyl machine,” he says. Those original parts include the big visor with a jagged edge, fairings and panels with similar bottoms, spring coverings, the front bumper and more.

“I get two to three comments a day on the road saying ‘You don’t see Macks fixed up like that every day,'” Lynch says.
