Body modifications:
Shaved corner lights, door handles, tailgate handle, roll pan, squirters, antenna, and cut for a Targa top-keepin' it oldskool!

Chris is a true old-skool minitrucker and has been reading this magazine since the very first issue. His dream was to complete this truck for Mini Truckin' magazine, Xtreme Lowz, and himsel f. It's tough, though, because it's his daily driver.

My wife, Raquel, and kids, Eden, and Kelly for their support; Joel Sadenwasser and Adam Radovich from Extreme Audio and Interiors, Mike at the Painter Shack, Zane at Street Life, Xtreme Lowz Riverside, Mark and Aaron at SCD Fabrication, and Grant Kustoms.
