When it comes to family vehicles, many parents are content rolling around in minivans or station wagons. This was unacceptable to John Wargo of Flanagan, Illinois, so he built this aggressive SUV at his shop, The Custom Shop, also in Flanagan. This 2011 Durango was custom-fit with a set of Firestone Ride Rite 'bags, allowing it to lay out on 22-inch Lexani wheels. John's shop then painted the Dodge in Prospray Ecstasy White Pearl with Brilliant Aluminum Silver and Candy Blue airbrushed graphics, a scheme which is echoed by the black and white two-tone leather interior. We certainly wouldn't mind cruising with the kids in this killer family-hauler.
