The square-body trucks, Blazers, and Suburbans from the mid-'70s until the late-'80s are making a comeback on the show scene. Jason Hill of Hill's Hot Rods in Lubbock, Texas, is the owner of this wild K5 Blazer featuring a welded on Suburban roof and body modifications galore. Take a look at some of the shots of this insane classic SUV we ran out of room for in the printed feature.
Heavy Haulers have always had a place in Truckin' magazine, and Bill Moore's 'bagged and body-dropped '92 extended cab is one of the finer ones we have photographed. Take a look at all the rocker-wrinkling custom flavor present on this exceptional extended cab in our next issue.
Classic Effies are timeless and this '55 slant cab owned by Jeff Schulhart of Nashport, Ohio, features 302 small-block Ford power, steamroller-sized rear meats, and a perfect stance. Check out this heavenly Effie in the Apr. '05 issue.
The '67-'72 Chevy pickups have become increasingly popular in recent years and finding a clean one to build in a reasonable price range can be difficult. Jesse Sawyer of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, found this '67 Stepside and gave it a new look with bright DuPont Lime Green paint, an adjustable suspension featuring Air Ride Technologies components, and 22x9.5-inch Elite chrome wheels. Take a peek at Jesse's sensational classic in next month's Truckin'.
Tonneau covers have revolutionized the way people use their trucks. Being able to lock things up when you are away from your ride turns a pickup bed into a large trunk, allowing for safe keeping of valuable items. Recently, we installed a SnugTop tonneau cover on a shortbed Super Duty and were very pleased with the results. Take a peek at some of the left-over installation shots.
Ridin' on Air
There is a myth that trucks on air suspension do not handle well. Air Ride Technologies, of Indiana, recently held a track day and put editors behind the wheel of several air-suspended rides to bust that myth. We were pleasantly surprised at how well some of these trucks handled. Catch a glimpse of some of the full-throttle action photos we couldn't squeeze into this month.
