Matching the Yukon is the '06 Magic 28 Deck. Built for tossing a few friends onboard and enjoying a day in the sun on the water, Chris ordered a few touches to make the journey a bit more fun-not that the Magic is a slouch when fitted with a 425-horse-over-the-counter motor, but more speed does equal more smiles. Under the hydraulic-powered hatch is a 580ci custom-built V-8 that makes horses in the 650 range. All that power is harnessed and put to the surf by an Imco Xtreme shorty-drive and stainless Bravo prop. Mashing the throttle until the Gaffrig tachometer says "stop!" will have the Magic running about 85 mph. It's just the thing to keep passengers on their toes. If that doesn't work, then blasting the tunes will. A Sony marine head unit tunes a pair of Kicker amplifiers moving 1,200 watts of boom through four Kicker Solobaric subwoofers. The whole setup rides on a triple-axle trailer with six 16-inch polished aluminum wheels.
Being in the custom truck and car business has afforded Chris some access to entertaining products when they first appear. If you should find yourself in the Chandler, Arizona, area, be sure to stop by and check out what's in the works there. If you can't make it there yourself, the digital realm can give you all of the information you need. Simply log onto the website www.xtcmotorsports.net, and let Chris know Truckin' magazine sent you.
For the remainder of the untouched portions of the truck, Chris kept it fairly sane. AMP Research Power Steps reach out and help driver and passenger alike ingress and egress to the lifted rig. Nu Image gauges add a sense of style to the interior, along with a few carbon-fiber bits from California Automotive Designs. House of Tints covered the windows to shield the interior and occupants from the glaring Arizona sun. Traveling needs are handled by a thumping sound system, which was installed by Kustom Kar Sound. A mega-sized subwoofer enclosure in the rear of the Yukon holds a triplet of 12-inch JL Audio subwoofers, which is powered by a JL Audio 1000.1 amplifier. The speakers in the factory locations are also JL powered, but with a smaller 500.5 amplifier. Outside, the GMC is dressed for duty in boat-matching graphics and Street Scene grilles. All in all, it's a simple approach to clean driving and towing accessorization.
