Dually owners are a special breed, especially those who love to drag the hell out of their trucks like Carl Pyeatt, from Sweetwater, Oklahoma. His '99 GMC Crew Cab is riding on Contitech 2600 'bags, features a rear two-link, and is set up for 22-inch wheels. Carl has also rid his dually of its door and tailgate handles, antenna, and anything else that was fit to shave. Inside the cab, Boa constrictor skin smothers the dash and trim pieces and a B.A.D. steering wheel has been added, which has also been covered in snake skin. Carl is currently shopping for a new roll pan since he lost the one he had during his last dragging session -now that's how we like to see dualies being driven!

Andrew Jones, from Mount Airy, North Carolina, is an incurable truck fiend. His '04 Dodge Ram 1500 has just received an interior overhaul in the way of leather seats with suede inserts and an audio/video system that features two DVD headrest monitors and two Rockford Fosgate P1 subs that have been neatly stashed away in an enclosure underneath the rear seats. A pair of projector headlights, black LED taillights, and the halo foglights that have been tucked behind the grille certainly make for an interesting lighting combination. A Flowmaster 40-series exhaust system and a cold air intake place Andrew's Ram at peak performance while venturing out onto the open roads.
Andrew Olivero, from Crockett, California, has just started working on his truck and we feel he is off to a great start. Andrew loves to read Truckin' and he gets many ideas from our tech pieces and feature articles. So far, Andrew has lowered his '05 Chevy Silverado 2/4 with a DJM drop kit and slapped on a set of 20-inch Centerline wheels and Falken rubber, which spin in front of performance cross-drilled rotors. A 7-inch Panasonic receiver gives Andrew control of the chest-pounding audio signal, which is delivered through two JL subs and a 1,000-watt Kenwood amp.
John Hopper, from Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, admits that his favorite part of each issue of Truckin' is the section you are reading this very second. John just loves to see what the average Joe is doing to his truck, and he was anxious to see his own hauler in the magazine. John must be having a blast while cruising his lifted GMC around since it is more than capable of mobbing down paved roads and off-road terrain. Thanks for reading, John.
