While at a junkyard, Brian noticed a white Oldsmobile Bravada with dented panels and no suspension. A week later, he was back with a flatbed and some straps. Using the two cab pieces, he welded them together, creating a 20-foot "super cab." Brian spent over six months creating a full fiberglass interior complete with handbuilt dash and panels, as well as bamboo and plexiglass flooring, before the cabin was finally considered complete.

Ben bought this former Negative Camber ride 10 years ago after seeing it at a show. The truck stuck out to him because of its rare V-6 with five-speed. The suspension now consists of a custom bridge with tube work, C-notch, painted four-link, two Viair 380s that fill a 7-gallon tank, 1/2-inch Parker valves, and Firestone 2,500lb 'bags. Plans call for a Grant Kustoms tailgate skin with wraparound bodyline, Phoenix Gold stereo, and a staggered wheel setup.

Nic Dorsey bought this '89 S-10 back in '99 from Bell Atlantic. The truck was being used as a runner but was in prime condition and only had 40K miles on it. It wasn't until a few years after purchasing that Nic slammed the suspension with a 5/6 setup. A 327ci Corvette engine was planted under the hood, and since then, Nic has been hitting the show scene and streets in fine minitruckin' form. He has plans to 'bag his truck, so expect more from this bad Dime.
