Anthony Wright is a nineteen-year-old, die-hard minitrucker from Vermont and this is his '98 Chevy S-10. The standard cab dime has been dropped six inches all around for a great-looking ride height. The 18-inch Dub Dirty Dog wheel and Toyo tire selection proves to fit this truck nicely. The exterior has been sprayed with Toyota metallic green paint and features full custom airbrushing all over. The Street Scene front bumper, projector headlights, and the rear fire and ice LED light bar round out the rest of this mini Bow Tie's modification list.
That's exactly how Cory Allen's license plate reads on his '05 Toyota Tacoma 4WD. The import hauler has been lifted three inches with EZ Lift products and now sits on a set of 17x9-inch Moto Metal 909 wheels and LT 305/65R17 BFG rubber. Cory has also bolted on a K&N air filter for better engine breathing and a 300-liter custom gas tank now brings enough extra fuel along to keep the excitement going even longer. Cory lives in Alberta, Canada, and he says that there are lots of back roads and off-road trails that lead to beautiful riverside camping grounds. Sounds like, Cory gets a great deal of use from his cool Taco.

Yep, that is one clean '04 Dodge Ram Big Horn edition, and yes, that is world famous Bourbon Street, in New Orleans underneath its 26-inch Bentchi B7 rollers. Jason Raines is the lucky owner of this nicely styled ride, and since the days of trying to keep the truck as stock as possible are over, he dropped it with a 2/4 Eibach lowering kit and had a custom, two-tone paint scheme sprayed. An SRT-10 hood has also been thrown into the mix and the tailgate handle was deleted for the sake of a smoother appearance. The interior has been filled with a full-blown audio system and the door panels and a few dash pieces were smoothed and painted to match the exterior paint. Sounds to us like we found our next Ride of the Month! Great work, Jason.
Tony Bowen runs Artistic Creations, a custom fabrication shop in Lakewood, Washington, and this old school '75 Chevy pickup is just one of his creations. The truck features a handmade tailgate, spider web grille, fender skirts, gas lid, window cranks, steering wheel, and too many more parts to list here. The taillights are frenched-in '53 Bel Air turn signals, which add a truly eclectic quality to the self-proclaimed rat king. The 454ci big-block has been candy painted, and so have the wheels for that matter. To give the truck a sporty stance, Tony lowered its suspension 7/5 since he still wanted to ride around with a hot-rod style rake. Tony handled all the fabrication in-house, so if you're in his area, stop by to see if he can make some of his rat rod modifications to your ride.
