It was one of those days when high-fives are being passed out and everyone is on cloud nine. At The Custom Shop, in Las Vegas, they had just completed the trifecta of customizing. Custom truck? Check. Custom sandcar? Check. Custom Rhino? Check. All three four-wheeled fun-pursuit vehicles were custom-painted to match each other and all three were pimped out with the best available parts to make them perform as good as they look.
The ’08 Dodge Ram Mega Cab features a custom Full Throttle lift using King Racing coilover shocks, lift blocks and large trailing arms that allow the truck to clear 37-inch Toyo Tires on 20-inch Weld wheels. A front dual steering stabilizer setup keeps steering light and easy and Mag-HyTec front and rear diff covers keep the axels looking good and running cool. To really make the Ram turn heads, Shelton Designs splashed gold and candy apple red flames all over the body and even did some hot-rod-styled pinstriping on the tailgate. The Cummins turbo-diesel pulls the trailer that carries the Tatum sandcar and Yamaha Rhino side-by-side UTV. Shelton Designs also painted those sand beasts. The Tatum sandcar features King Racing coilovers, an LS2 V-8 engine, and a billet long-arm suspension for ultimate in high-speed desert maneuvers. King Racing coilovers are also found on the Yamaha Rhino that was lifted using a long-travel suspension, larger 25-inch Terra Cross tires, and aluminum wheels.
Showing up the river or to the desert in this trio has to be a treat and the Custom Shop was happy to make one customer’s dream come true. For more info, check out thecustomshopvegas.com
