PHOTO: Nineteen-year-old owner/operator Dylan Mercier is waiting to get his unique Mack Vision out on the road. The St. Anne, Ill., firefighter and owner/operator purchased the 2005 truck with his dad, Ralph, a little over a year ago, and it didn’t take long for his vision to become a reality. “I purchased a firefighter costume for the Mack bulldog on the hood, and after that, I knew what needed to be done,” Mercier said. Mercier outfitted his rig with numerous aftermarket accessories before having the truck and grain trailer wrapped in a vinyl visual that pays tribute to fallen firefighters. “As a firefighter myself, I drive this truck with pride and joy,” Mercier said. “I love the new graphics that were installed by Fastlane Wraps. They did an amazing job on the installation. I also really love the Minimizer fenders, tool box, and slick plate. We’ve used these products on the farm for years, and they are incredibly durable. And how can you not love the six-inch chrome pipes? All in all, it turned out awesome.”
