H. Kent Sundling, (Mr.Truck), spent his first 30 years on the farm. In high school, Sundling sorted cattle after school for local farmers, ditch loading his Quarter Horse in the back of his pickup truck. Over a million miles towing large trailers and wearing out trucks on the farm, led to his next career selling trucks in Denver for 10 years. Auto buyer for AAA Auto Club selling all brands and Internet truck sales at a dealership involved Mr.Truck in his first website in 1999. Ford Motor managers named Sundling, "Mr.Truck" when they picked him one of the top 4 truck salesman in the country. For Ford, Mr.Truck did live truck training on FordStar TV and some truck training videos. Ten years later, on to automotive journalism, Mr.Truck built a couple dozen websites about towing trailers and started his truck and trailer review column in horse and farm magazines. As part of the national press, Mr.Truck gets invited to new truck media launches and horse trailer factories for review. www.MrTruck.com, reviews of trucks, SUV's, trailers and accessories.
