Red Ranger

Billy started like most of us in high school. He bought this truck his junior year and with the support of his parents and his club, Class Act, it was all downhill from there. It started with a 2/3 drop, billet grille, and 17-inch Mustang Cobra R wheels. That didn't last long, as it currently has a 4/5 drop, 18-inch Boss 338s, an '01 Ranger Power Dome hood and front bumper. Future plans include 'bagging, adding a rollpan, and shaving some things-and driving the hell out of it.

Smurfed Out

This truck has sentimental value for Brian as his uncle bought it brand-new in '87. He had it slammed back in the early '90s, but when Brian got it, it was pretty much stock but still lowered a little. Brian started by dropping its stance a little more and adding nicer wheels. He then went to CanDo to have Steve 'bag the front. For the back, Brian went to Terry and Ryan at Drag Thru Kustoms, who talked him into doing a stock-floor bodydrop. Pete, from Freaks of Nature, painted the truck white. James at Applied Coatings then powdercoated the wheels.

Magically Green

Chris and his dad started this father-and-son build back in early 2000. Working with a 1989 Mazda B2200 automatic, it was the perfect truck-bone-stock and in great shape. They started with lowering it and putting Nissan Pathfinder wheels on it. That didn't last long, and after Drop Zone '03 the Mazda got a custom 'bag setup, a custom cantilever four-link setup in the rear, 3-inch bodydrop, and was fully shaved and painted for the next year's Drop Zone. The truck was then painted a custom Kawasaki Green.
