The Chevy S-10 and the GMC Sonoma have been the go-to truck in the minitruck community. No matter which brand of truck you have, there is an abundance of parts, from wheels to the smallest detail piece that you don't think is made - someone makes it.
The problem with that is when attending a show there are dozens of S-10s or Sonomas that have the same bolt-on part that you have. The only way to stand out from every other fellow owner is to take it up a notch and do something different. There are many ways to accomplish this task, like creating a killer interior or 'bag'n and body-dropping it over a set 22-inch wheels. You could even throw thousands of dollars at it for a paint job. That is cool and all, but when push comes to shove, it is still one of the most popular trucks that might still resemble the one that you park next to at shows. So how do you make your truck look different? Change the look of the front end. Look at it like this: there are only so many items that can be shaved on a truck. There are only a few options that can be done to modify the tailgate of a truck. But the front end, there is almost an endless amount of possibilities. There are many vehicles out there that have the shape of any year S-10 or Sonoma in which elements can be used to create an extension of your personality. To get the creative juices flowing, we have put together a collection of front-end swaps that we hope will inspire you.
In conclusion, these changes to your vehicle's front end will definitely create a completely new look, and your truck or SUV will have a great beginning to its life as a full-blown custom. Coming up with some rarely seen modifications is what keeps our industry constantly moving forward. We look forward to every year as some shows turn up some interesting ideas that cause others to think harder and dig deeper into the "wouldn't it be cool if" files. The '09 show season is coming up.
