Zac Brown has custom-designed a 2015 Ram 2500 Commando, donated by auto dealer and NASCAR team owner Rick Hendrick, to be auctioned by Barrett-Jackson on October 15. The donation will support Brown’s non-profit Camp Southern Ground in Georgia, focused on children with Autism Spectrum Disorders, ADD/ADHD, Dyslexia, and children with family members serving in the military.

Brown worked closely with his in-house design team, Zac Brown Customs, to outfit the truck with Mississippi Hornback Alligator skin on the seats, center console and steering wheel. The floor mats and sun visors liners feature Brazilian Bovine hair-on-hide. The truck, including its front decorative grill, features 33 GranDaddy knives, courtesy of Brown’s metal works shop Southern Grind. Rugged off-road accessories were donated by Greg Adler of 4 Wheel Parts in addition to the hand-painted Kryptek Camo rear truck bed, which also features a hidden tailgate step.

This is the third vehicle Hendrick has donated this year.
