ON THE COVER
THIS MONTH'S COVER PAYS TRIBUTE TO THE "GOOD OL' DAYS". STATIC-DROPPED MINITRUCKS USED TO RULE THE STREETS AND HAVE SEEN A RECENT RESURGENCE IN POPULARITY WITH THE BACK TO THE BASICS APPROACH TO TRUCK CUSTOMIZING. PHOTOGRAPHY BY MIKE ALEXANDER.
IN YO FACE
This pavement-scrapin' dime, owned by AJ Renner, definitely stands out at shows.
Gary Ellison spent the better part of a decade modifying his '88 Toyota Xtracab to be the perfect retirement gift to himself.
We couldn't go an entire issue without at least one super-modded killer minitruck! Check out Katsuhiro Ando's insane Tacoma straight out of Japan.
HIGH SCHOOL MINI

CENTER SPREAD POSTER
This month's poster gives you two cool logo options for your walls.
Justin Watkins is what you might call an audio aficionado. Actually, we'll go one step further and say he's a fanatic. Inside, this Blazer is stuffed with enough sound equipment to rival most concert halls.
THE HOT SEAT
This month we get up close and personal with a North East youngin' but old-school minitrucker and show promoter. Check out the scoop on Jeff King, complete with a spy photo for all to enjoy.
Trust us! It's all about the fun.
Ever imagine a good ol' fashion picnic get together and truck show all at once?
