Las Vegas: the neon lights, the blackjack tables, the booze, and the women. These are the things that most every male tourist from around the globe looks forward to as they flock to the 4.5-mile stretch of debauchery. Sure, those of us who get to party like heathens can survive a weekend, maybe an entire week. But after that, it's actually a relief to return home emotionally and physically unscathed. For others, like Mike Guerrero, Vegas is home, and taking up hobbies other than gambling at casinos and bar-hopping is a definite must for anybody who might desire to experience an average human lifespan.
Luckily for Mike, finding a more constructive pastime wasn't a problem. The Nevada dunes proved to be the perfect environment for a healthy truck-building habit. It didn't take long for Mike's killer '06 Ford F-150 to start growing in height, once it had sprung from the dealership. The truck's sudden growth spurt, 6 inches to be exact, came in the form of Pro Comp spindles, shocks, and blocks. The lift is just high enough to keep the 20x9-1/2-inch KMC Monster wheels from sitting too far beneath the fenders, while creating enough space to mow down most obstacles in its path. The beefed up 35/12.5R20 Toyo tires help keep the truck stable and in forward motion-perfect for blitzing any speed bumps (or unruly, out-of-town degenerates) that may threaten to slow Mike down from getting where he needs to be.
With the truck now standing head and shoulders above the crowd, the exterior was treated to a look that would attract attention away from the blinding bulbs of the Vegas strip. Divine One Customs laid down the House of Kolor Tangelo Pearl strip, which breaks up the silver and DuPont Chrysler 300M black hues. Color-matched side view mirrors, door and tailgate handles, and wiper cowl make for a bold yet understated appearance. Mike went easy on the flashy accessories, instead he opted to use only the prescribed dose of billet any truck really needs: grille inserts, an antenna, and a new fuel door; which are always a winning bet.
