Brett McClelland from McLoud, Oklahoma, is only 19 years old and he mobs around in this clean '96 S-10 daily. Brett's cruiser was 'bagged front and back over some chrome wheels. The exterior has been shaved; including the doors, tailgate, and antenna. A 2-inch cowl hood and a full phantom grille give the front a mean appearance. Painted PPG Silver on top, and PPG Pearl Orange, this ride attracts a lot of attention. The inside was matched with silver leather and orange tweed on the seats. The door panels were painted orange and also have silver leather, and the headliner is silver leather with orange tweed. The dash was also painted to match like the outside of the truck. For good tunes, Brett rumbles the city with a set of Memphis 12-inch subs. Brett plans to cruise and keep the custom mods rolling. We know we'll see more of Brett's truck in the future.
Holdin' It Down
Jeff Beckley is holdin' it down-big time-with his fully custom '88 Mazda B2000 body-dropped 2 inches to lay flat on the ground over the 18x8-inch chrome wheels. Jeff's ride was 'bagged all the way around with 12 Parker 1/2-inch valves and a 50lb Co2. For the rear suspension, Jeff chose a three-link wishbone setup and notched the frame to lay out. Keeping with the so-fresh so-clean look, the exterior had been smoothed by ditching the door handles, gas door, bed seams, and the tailgate. By installing and modifying a roll-pan combo and the stock rockers to meet, it gave the rear a custom-smooth appearance. The interior was done in all bright-white vinyl, accented by gray tweed, and a painted dash and interior pieces finished everything off. To let the air in and the sound of the Eclipse head unit connected to Boston pro 6-1/2-inch components and three JL Audio 10s out a Britax ragtop was recovered in bright-white marine vinyl and cut into the roof. Jeff's Mazda is super clean and rolls the boulevard daily!
Tyler from P-Town (Paris, Tennessee) is the proud owner of this Chevy S-10. Tyler has been a busy 16 year old. Rolling down the street, Tyler enjoys the sounds of his Vaylor DVD player, bumpin' with three 12-inch Memphis Mojo subwoofers and 1,500-watt JL amps to push the power. What's on the inside is just as important as what's on the outside. For Tyler's interior, he has a fiberglass dash color-matched to the exterior paint with a two-tone custom blue on top, white on the bottom with blue flake. With all of the hard work Tyler has put into his ride, he is definitely going to be a force to reckon with on the mean streets of P-Town. Tyler's future plans include air bags, a Generation two bumper, new interior, and let's not forget the engine needs love, too.
Dragging the Earth
Bear Manley has had his '89 S-10 for about three years, and just recently has started "dragging the earth." To get started, Bear decided to straight-pipe his S-10 with a 4-1/2-inch tip coming right off the Flowmaster. Most importantly, he decided to 'bag the truck, and shave the tailgate, door handles, emblems, moldings, and added '89 Caddy lights just above the custom roll pan. Bear is riding low with some JL 12s, a 1,400-watt amp pushing the bumps, and watching his in-dash DVD player. The paint on the hood and cowl was done by the neighborhood kids, and the inside paint finishes his mods, at least for now. Bear assures us, like any good mini, there's much more planned for the future.
Chad Powers from Pine Bluff, Arkansas, owns this '88 Chevy S-10. Chad has had the truck since he was 16, and has done what most thought was the impossible: he has taken his '88 Chevy from the laughing stock of the town and has transformed it into the lowest truck around. For any minitrucker, we all know that is the ultimate goal. Chad and his buddies got it down to an impressive 2 inches from the ground. Being a hardcore minitrucker, we can't just stop at the suspension, the body mods are important, as well. Chad has shaved door handles and tailgate, a molded license-plate box, wiper cowl, emblems, hand-built grille, Altezza taillights, and clear headlights and corner lenses. The interior consists of white Corinthian leather with a custom black-leather console with white flames, fiberglass door panels painted candy with flying skulls, and Acura bucket seats. Chad has something to prove. So keep up the hard work.
Brad Ridley from Barrie, Canada, bought his '99 GMC Sonoma two years ago, and has been hooked ever since. Brad's S-10 was lowered 2 inches in the front, 4 inches in the back, and has a custom-made grille and bumper, that both go along with that a custom-blue paintjob. It's on top-secret status that only Brad knew about until now. The body mods consist of a shaved tailgate, antenna, and blue-tinted taillights to match the custom paint. While Brad is cruisin' during the warm months in Canada, he is bumpin' some 12-inch Rockford Fosgate HX2 subwoofers powered by a 900-watt amp. Brad would like to thank Nick Robson for all of his help on the Sonoma. Brad knows he has a great start on a custom-show truck and is looking forward to the future.
