Is it just me or are more and more GM trucks popping up than ever before? I know the GM trucks have always been a popular starting point for a custom build. Mainly because most parts for those trucks are cheaper, at least in my opinion anyway. I know Ford prior to 1997 were a pain to lower, especially to get them to lay frame cause of the I-beams. Here is a crazy idea, but how about an all Ford edition? Don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against GM, but I’ve always been a Ford guy my whole life. Anyway, keep up the best custom truck magazine on earth.

We have actually seen a decrease in GM trucks and an increase in Ford and Ram. But you are right that both Chevy and GMC trucks are popular starting points for custom truck guys. We try to include a little bit of everything in each issue. That includes features and tech of Ford, Chevy, and Dodge, as well as a good mix of lifted and lowered trucks. But we will bring up your suggestion in the next meeting.

This is a great example of good-looking customs that are not made by GM.


Just wanted to say thanks again for putting my truck in the magazine. The cover of Truckin is a childhood dream of most custom truck guys, I’m sure. I am looking forward to seeing the issue soon. Thanks again for everything.

One of the reasons we do what we do is to make dreams come true. But you really have yourself to thank for building a killer truck. Thanks for the kind words.

The last few of these Close-Ups have been fairly easy. Maybe this one will stump more of you. Tell me what truck or SUV this is from for your chance to win some Truckin swag. Good luck!

Got something to tell us? This is your spot. Tell us you like a feature, want to see more tech stories of your particular truck, or tell us we got a new truck test right or wrong.
