2006 Chevy Silverado
Mike Matamoros - Rogers, Texas
Titled "Blue Bombshell" in issue 8, Mike's Silverado is a perfect example of how far subtle modifications can go. 'Bagged over 22-inch Intro wheels, his Chevy has the right stance. Two-toned blues with a simple break-up line, the body is eye-catching, but not over the top. Painted interior pieces and black leather seats are easy on the eyes. You see, nothing stands out, however, the complete package is done so well, we can't get enough of the truck. Why didn't it crack the Top 10 then? At the time of our shoot, Mike hadn't finished up under the hood yet. After all, it's the little things, right?
2006 Toyota Tundra
Chris Hernandez - La Mirada, California
You may just walk past Chris' Tundra at a show because of its extreme cleanness. It's so incredibly sanitary you may miss the custom suspension work that allows the Double Cab to lay-out on 24-inch paint-matched Boss wheels, or the suede-wrapped interior with painted accents, or even the full sheetmetal bed created by Chassis by Aaron Iha. What you won't miss is the stack of trophies and the amount of turning heads Chris accumulates every time he gets behind the wheel of his slick Toyota. So why only an Honorable Mention?
