While the rest of the country was digging themselves out of snow, rain, and all the other ugly weather Mother Nature felt like dishing out, Truckin' magazine and Chevy Trucks got together and threw a party to celebrate that age-old tradition of ringing in summer with bikinis, sunshine, water, and custom trucks. Lake Havasu was the place to be, and Truckin' filled the area with a ton of vendors like Air Zenith, Icon Motorsports, Street Beat Customs, Discount Tire Company, BTW Off-Road, Mini Truck Mayhem Video, Mac's Springs, Laguna Speed Shop, Gibson Exhaust, LMC Truck, Stylin' Concepts, Acoustic Edge, and even High Torque Marine. But, before any revelry took place between the grassy knolls overlooking the channel in Lake Havasu, many participants joined Sport Truck and Truckin' magazines on a cruise from Cali to Arizona. Stops along the cruise included MKW Wheels, SS Motorsports, BTW Off-Road, Out of Control Offroad, and lunch at Beer Hunters. At each stop, prizes were raffled off and participants got a chance to go behind the scenes at each shop to see how real custom trucks are built.

On The Road...
Rain did threaten the early stages of the cruise, but the weather managed to clear up just in time for us to snap a grip of photos of many of the cruisers along Interstate 15 in Barstow. Once we put the cameras away, we all hauled ass for Havasu and the kick-off party at the London Bridge resort. From that moment on, the weekend was a blur and was over faster than we could say "Boats don't belong in Sport Truck."
