Durango Double Take
Austin Carey has previously owned a Dodge Durango but it was totaled in an accident before he was able to take any decent photos of it. Determined to make it into his favorite truck publication, Austin purchased his second Durango, this '00 SLT 4WD model, and added a few modifications before he asked his sister, Stephanie Bockhorn, to put her photographic skills to good use. Searching for a model was an easy task since Austin's girlfriend, Lauren Ortiz, was more than happy to jump in front of the camera. Austin admits to spending too much money on his main squeeze and thinks he should direct more money into his truck. We are keeping our mouths shut on this one, Austin, but from the looks of things, it doesn't look like you're making out too bad either way you decide to go.
East Coast H3
James Rea, from Pensacola, Florida, is serious about cruising around in a cool ride, which is why he got himself a '06 Hummer H3 Adventure. With the Hummer in his driveway, James added on a set of 18x9-inch KMC XD Rockstar wheels with 33x12.50R18 Toyo M/T Open Country tires. To bump up the performance a bit, a K&N cold air intake and a Volant cat-back SS exhaust were hooked up, and a PCMforless.com tune helped corral the extra ponies into a well-organized pack. James also bolted on a Steelcraft brush guard, a Mike Parker PEC-800 winch, a Purple Cranium rear diff guard, and Boulder Accessories rear axle skid plates for additional style and utility.
The Cyclone Crew
Ty Stayer has owned this F-150 since August '06 and has done all of the work himself. There are still big plans in the works to make her as fast as she looks by conducting a 5.4L supercharged engine swap. For now, the truck is cool enough to cruise in style and once he adds the power it will be a complete, killer package. The 22x10-inch American Racing RT-S wheels and 275/45R22 Cooper Zeon Xsta tires look great underneath the 2/4 drop. The interior features black leather buckets, color matched dash and door pieces, and a banging sound system complete with a Kenwood head unit, Infinity amps, and Kicker subs.
Well, that's what Greg Roth's grandkids call his '03 Ford F-150 SuperCrew. Greg bought the truck brand new in '02 and since then, he has dropped its stance with a 2/4 Belltech kit, and wrapped a set of American Racing wheels with Toyo Proxes S/T rubber. For better performance, an Airaid intake has found its way under the hood, and a Flowmaster exhaust system allows for better air movement. With most kids having to ride around in some boring minivan, it's nice to see that Greg was cool enough to build a stylish truck for the grandkids to roll around town in.
