The S-10 is dropped 5 inches in the front with Toxic Shocks, and the rear is lowered 6 inches, controlled with Gabriel air shocks and accompanied by an on-board air compressor.

Made For Each OtherPassed down by a family member, this '01 Chevy Silverado is now owned by Leo Perez of Houston, Texas. Performance is provided by its 6.0L engine, and it rides on 22-inch Neeper Monstas with P285/35R22 Nitto tires. One of Leo's first modifications was to the interior where he added Kenwood and Pioneer speakers, 7-inch screens, a PlayStation, and an XBox, all installed by Tino's Car Vision. The outside of the truck has billet door panels, a 6/8 drop, a chrome Tahoe grille, and Escalade door handles. Leo hopes to change the color of his truck to House of Kolor Candy Apple Red and change his rims to 24-inch Giovanni Dresden 7s.
Double TroubleJustin Holmes of San Pedro, California, is the owner of these two beauties - an '01 F-150 and a '00 Navigator.

Justin went a step further in the interior and added a Sony PlayStation, a DVD player, and 12-inch subwoofers. As for his real Navigator, it has 22-inch wheels and the entire trim painted to match. The interior has an Alpine CVA 1005, a DVD player, and a PlayStation.
Hard Work Pays OffChris Whitaker of Raleigh, North Carolina, is the proud owner of this '88 Chevy S-10. Chris had to work two jobs in order to give his baby a new look, which he started by changing the engine to a '92 2.8L V-6 engine, then moved to the body. With 18-inch Rozzi wheels, Chris is able to get in and around work in his S-10. The truck went from white to blue, and Chris added taillights and headlight chrome pieces. Keeping his two jobs is helping Chris to be able to afford future add-ons.
Desert HeatLou Goedgart of Phoenix has been pouring 4 years of labor into his '99 Chevy Silverado. Doing research by reading Truckin' and wanting his Silverado to look eye-catching on the street, Lou was inspired to add an AIRAID intake, a 3-inch exhaust with a Flowmaster muffler, a billet aluminum dash, a SnugTop tonneau, and a shaved tailgate. Lou is currently working on the interior and still being persuaded by his wife to do more modifications.
