Inside of the Mega Cab, The Custom Truck Shop took a clean-and-classy approach, rather than an over-the-top one. Black suede now adorns the gray leather, a black-suede headliner added elegance, and custom-embroidered headrests sport The Custom Truck Shop logos. An Eclipse DVD/navigation head unit sends signals to two Rockford Fosgate amps, which power four sets of MB Quartz components, and two JL Audio 12W6 subwoofers. The subs and amps were mounted behind the back seat and were wrapped in suede. Careful measuring before building the box allows the back seat to still fully recline. Also, the Rockford amps were painted to match the body. No longer wood, the plastic trim was smoothed and painted red to give the interior some color. Exclusive Window Tint performed the limo tint to keep the Las Vegas sun out of the Dodge Ram.
Finishing off the truck was the addition of a custom rack in the bed designed to house Travis' painted-to-match '06 Yamaha Rhino. Made out of 1-3/4-inch tubing, The Custom Truck Shop spent 55 hours designing, fabricating, and welding the awesome bed rack. Twelve-foot aluminum ramps fold out of the bed and angle out at 25 degrees. The Rhino has no problem climbing up to the top of its perch, while the airbags on the Mega Cab keep the suspension nice and level. Of course, if Travis was going to stick a Rhino in the back of his custom Dodge truck, the Rhino had better to be custom, as well. Using custom-machined billet A-arms, the Rhino has 6 more inches of travel. Four King Off-Road coilovers were used to provide maximum cushioning and four HD Gorilla axles with QA1 rod ends give the Rhino plenty of strength. Powering the side-by-side is a five- valve 660cc Yamaha engine with a Mountain Performance supercharger and intercooler running 10-psi boost to blast the Rhino to 70 mph. The Custom Truck Shop designed the custom four seat configuration complete with removable rear section so the bed can still be accessed for engine tuning. Beard Seats in Anaheim, California, provided the suede-covered seats with custom embroidery and Crow four-point harnesses. Three Eagle Eye HID driving lights are mounted onto the front bumper, fabbed up by The Custom Truck Shop. Chris Shelton was called upon again to paint the Rhino in matching Candy Apple Red and Pagan Gold. Finishing off the look, Weld custom-made a set of forged 13x8-inch wheels with Hoosier Dirt Track tires. A bumpin' sound system and GPS can also be found inside of the Rhino.
Calling it a success after this year's SEMA Show, Travis plans on enjoying the amazing setup and experiencing custom-toy nirvana every time the sun shines. With the projects completed, the guys at The Custom Truck Shop, in Las Vegas, could take a break, but one that is very brief. You may be wondering, what's next? The word on the street is, a paint-matched boat could be the final piece of this dream setup. Indiana Jones would be proud.
