ON THE COVER
This month's cover features not only one of the baddest trucks in Japan, but quite possibly one of the baddest trucks ever built! Atsushi Mori's 1996 Toyota Hilux is truly remarkable. Cover photography courtesy of Makoto Okamura from Truck Trends Japan.
Not Your Average Hay Hauler
Nate Walker's daily driven S-10 is a small-town truck sportin' a big-city feel.
Lynwood "Woody" Spooner took inspiration from one of our past cover trucks to build his 1996 Ford Ranger.
Takashi Yashiki or "Frank" as we call him is one of the most hardcore minitruckers in Japan. He has spent the last eight years building one of the most detailed trucks around. Truly a work of art and deserves to share the spotlight of this month's special art issue.
Atsushi Mori's 1996 Toyota Hilux features more body mods than a Playmate. But every single mod was planned and precisely executed and covered in one of the finest paintjobs we've ever laid eyes on. This truck will definitely be remembered for years to come.
Matt Gyles is a man with a plan. He turned his 1997 Toyota Tacoma into a masterpiece, and even though we don't see too many feature trucks out of Jersey, Matt's Taco represents New Jersey with cover-quality work throughout!
Chad Silvey has created a very unique masterpiece that blurs the line of customs. Living large down under isn't always easy, but Chad has found a way to blend popular American mods with an Aussie icon.
We toured the AccuAir facility and found the ultimate air management solution! These guys really build an amazing product and the engineering and years of development shine through in all that they create.

The Hot Seat
This month we bring you Jamey "HandMade" Jordan from HandMade Seat Co.-definitely as good of a guy as they come.
Club Profile: Sittin' Pretti
Not only do they throw one of the Northwest's premier shows, but Sittin' Pretti sticks true to it's minitruck roots and supports the scene and their community in all that they do.
Scale Model Build: Round 2
Our Minitruckinweb.com Round 2 model build contest brought out 32 builders to duke it out for the crown.
This Midwest show mixing the best of both worlds in a central location is ready to hit the big times and has already tripled in size in only two years.
Lake Front Tour
Down in the Bayou (or anywhere in the south central coast) weather is not always going to be on your side. But after 18 dedicated years, Roger Miller and his crew continue to throw one of the coolest shows around!
Slammin' & Jammin'
Turnin' 16 can be a special time-a little more freedom comes with a drivers license and a little bit of maturity can go a long way. This year Slammin' & Jammin' pulled out all the stops to celebrate its sweet 16.
