Bridge DodgerThis low-down '01 Dodge Ram, belonging to Brandon Snyder of Guam, had no problem cruising under this bridge. The smooth-cruising Dodge features a C-notched frame and a 3-inch drop. The truck is mounted on 20-inch Center Line wheels wrapped by Goodyear tires. The Dodge also has an AIRAID intake and a dual-chamber Flowmaster exhaust with a 5-inch tip to give it a nice rumble. The sound system includes a combination of a Kenwood stereo system and a DVD player with screen. Brandon's plans include adding airbags and a tonneau for the bed.
If It Wasn't for Bad Luck...Rob Payne's '00 Chevy S-10 has had to deal with damage time and time again. Although Rob lives in the quiet town of Mt. Vernon, Illinois, by the time he fixed up his truck, it was smashed and egged twice. Talk about bad luck. The S-10 was initially dropped 5 inches, but after being rear-ended, Rob went ahead and upgraded his truck a little more. He put in a new bed, molded in an APC roll pan, shaved the door and tailgate handles, and had the truck custom-painted with silver flames. After so much anguish, Rob is finally tranquil and hoping his truck doesn't endure any more suffering.
Air Force OneFor most people, customizing a truck rarely comes easy. If you plan to achieve your custom goals, you have to work hard toward making them happen. This was the case for Billy J. Hazen of Laurel, Maryland, when he purchased a '99 Ford F-150. With his well-earned money, he added an Air Force One intake, a Steelhorse billet grille, Lakewood traction bars, and a Flowmaster dual exhaust. The entertainment system revolves around a Kenwood CD player, a Kenwood amp, and two 12-inch MTX6000 subs.
First ImpressionAt first glance, your impression of Larry Zimmer's truck is that it's a '95 Ford Ranger. However, Larry changed this by shaving the door handles, frenching the antenna, and modifying the Ford by shaving the tailgate and adding a roll pan. As if that wasn't enough, Larry chopped 3 inches off the top of the truck and and lengthened it by 3 inches. Although there are no specifics about what's next on the agenda, Larry states that his Ford is a work in progress with more modifications still in store.
A Killer KreationMichael Pacitti of Philadelphia wasn't joking when he decided to custom-paint and change his stock '02 Dodge Ram 1500. The truck features a 2/4 drop, a Sir Michaels custom roll pan, and an SS front bumper. An Innovations Sport tonneau was added to the bed to cover the Rhino liner. The system includes a rear-vision camera, a flip/touch-screen DVD, and a 13-inch drop-down TV screen. The custom paintjob was performed by Killer Kreations. Now that's one killer custom.
Bow Tie SmileThis '02 Chevy Silverado, owned by Austin Propst of Branson West, Missouri, attracts more than the usual attention. His Silverado has a Belltech 3/5 drop and rolls on 16-inch chrome wheels. The front end was revamped with a Trenz billet grille, and everything was shaved off the Silverado's sides. Austin followed it up by tinting the windows and painting the front end for a clean smile. The truck's stock interior is soon to be remodeled.
