Ghostly SierraThis '03 GMC Sierra belongs to Mitch Doukas of Santa Cruz, California. For Mitch, change is important, so he changed his truck as soon as he bought it. He lowered the rear with Belltech lowering blocks and added some 22-inch Bazo rims wrapped by Nitto tires. Mitch tells us that after only 3,000 miles he got tired of worrying about his 22s, so he bolted on a 7-inch Fabtech lift, a 3-inch body lift, and some 33-inch Super Swamper tires. We're pretty sure we'll see much more to come from Mitch. Change is good.
Red VineJohn Lee loves a challenge, and with experience in rebuilding trucks, this '96 Chevy Silverado is in good hands. The handles were shaved, and a front bumper and phantom grille were added. John used PPG Bright Red as the basecoat with clearcoat for the job, and with the help of John's friend Victor Carmona, the paintjob was finished. Seventeen-inch Center Line Lasers were added and wrapped with Nankang tires. For sound, two 12-inch DEI subwoofers were installed behind the seats, along with a Sony in-dash CD player with a 10-disc changer for entertainment. John tells us he sees a rebuild of a boat, rather than a truck, in his future.
A New BreedNot only is Angelo Woodrow serving our country in the Navy, but he also occasionally takes time out to read Truckin'. Angelo is the owner of this sweet '00 Toyota Tacoma 4x4. The Tacoma was lifted 3 inches and has Fabtech adjustable front coilovers, a custom stainless steel header, a stainless steel exhaust, a K&N air intake, and a JET Performance chip. Once this was all done, the truck was ready for some 24-inch Giovanni Lido rims wrapped by Kumho tires of the P305/35R24 variety. In the interior there is a set of Memphis 10-inch subs with an upgraded Alpine CD player and a white-face gauge kit. The only plan Angelo has for the future is to keep treating his truck as a never-ending project.
CruznloThis '96 Dodge Dakota SLT V-8 is the daily driver for the Carton family of Warren, Vermont. Kathy and Chris Carton are the owners of this beauty, and Kathy says her husband Chris did all the hard work. Chris began by installing an ATI Supercharger with intercooler for more power. The truck rides on 17-inch Center Line wheels wrapped by Nitto rubber. The exterior has Caddy taillights, a Trenz grille, shaved door handles, and painted-to-match air dam and mirrors. For sound, there's a Blaupunkt stereo with a 10-disc changer and 6x9 Audiobahn speakers.
Trick Two-ToneThis '94 Chevy Extra Cab is owned by Greg Hargraves of Ellenton, Georgia. The truck was purchased in 2003, and as soon as the deal was made, Greg began working hard on modifying the Chevy. A Sir Michaels roll pan, clear taillights, and a Trenz billet grille were added first. Soon after, it received a two-tone paintjob, and a Goodmark cowl-induction hood was installed. Not only was it dropped, but 20-inch Boss rims wrapped in Cooper rubber were also installed. With Truckin' as his inspiration, Greg will keep landing new ideas for his truck.
