Our First pickup
On a hot Manhattan afternoon in 2014, Ben Jackson had four different friends ask if they could borrow his pickup to help haul stuff across town. Multiple truck loads later, being more worn out than his '99 Ford Ranger, he laid in bed thinking, "there has to be a better way."
The next day in class at K-State, Ben whispered his dilemma to Harrison Proffitt who nonchalantly replied, "Let's start a business." They walked out of that class with one concept in mind: tap a button, get a truck.
Bungii has come a long way since then and we look forward to being there for your next "I need a truck" moment.
