YEAR & MAKE: '96 Chevy S-10 standard cab
LOCATION: Chino Hills, CA
CLUB AFFILIATION: Kontradictions
Wheels/Tires 20x8.5-inch chrome Lexani wheels with 35-series Kumho tires serve as the big bad-boy rolling attire for Nick's S-mini.
Suspension After a pair of Belltech spindles were bolted up for an initial drop in ride height, a pair of Firestones were slid between the upper and the lower control arms, replacing the factory coil springs and making height adjustability possible. In the rear, a bridge-notch gives the frame the clearance it needs to allow 20-inch rollers to sink effortlessly into the bed side wheelwells. Control of the truck's air suspension is executed via SMC high-flow electric valves.
Mods Include shaved door handles, a shaved front bumper, shaved parking lights, shaved license plate holes, Grant Fabrication tailgate skin, Grant Fabrication taillight fillers, a shaved gas filler door, a relocated gas filler, shaved hood squirters, a cowl-induction hood, shaved mirror mounts, radiused door corners, a shaved third brake light, a shaved antenna, and shaved upper and lower rain gutters, all performed by Troy at Infamous Custom Body Works in Chino, California.
Interior The truck's already equipped with a Pioneer head unit, MB Quart separates in the doors and, Kicker subwoofers in the Extended Cab. Additionally, the interior of the S-10 is already extremely nice, since the seats have been chopped and reupholstered with gray vinyl and yellow vinyl flame inserts. Advanced Specialties in Brea, California, is responsible for the upholstery work inside Nick's S-10.
Misc Performance items installed on the S-10 include a Flowmaster muffler, 3-inch exhaust tubing, a K&N intake, and a bored throttle body.
Project Notes Soon, the rear suspension will be four-linked, allowing this S-10 to lie flat on 20s by Devious Customs. Other future plans include installing an LT-1 engine, doing a body drop, and swinging the doors reverse in suicide fashion. Unfortunately, the suspension as it sits on the truck now is largely done poorly according to the truck's owner. He's relying on Devious Customs to help save his truck and propel it forward to custom greatness.
