Some people say that when there is a possibility of being caught in the act—doing something naughty, something forbidden, something that will get you in trouble—that it makes the experience better. But very few of us will ever dare to do it when it’s…leased. Todd Moyer customized this 2000 S-10 X-treme knowing full well that he had to give it back to the dealership one day. Did that stop him? Hell no. Two hours at a time, secretly in the wee hours of the night, this truck was built. Nobody approved of Todd’s plans for his X-treme. But every time he goes to the dealership, the employees circle like vultures, waiting for their chance to bid on his ride. The lease is up in a year. Think he’ll give it back?

When he originally leased the truck, he intended to keep it stock (famous last words). And he did keep it stock…for about a month. The mods started with the 17-inch KMC Hellion wheels and Nitto tires and quickly progressed from there. X-tremes already look low off the showroom floor, but definitely not low enough for Todd’s taste. In order to fulfill his gravity lust, he used Belltech drop spindles and drop blocks to lower the front 4½ inches and the back 4 inches.

The paint you see is the paint the truck was born with. But what about those graphics? Those aren’t paint. Those are vinyl. One of the first compliments we gave to Todd when we saw his truck was, “Cool paint.” Then we took a closer look and were totally flabbergasted to discover that they were actually vinyl decals! Because Todd’s truck is a leased vehicle, he felt it would be a terrible waste to repaint the truck since he will have to give it back in a couple of years. He’s actually beaten out painted trucks in the “best graphics” category more than once.

Other mods include the Street Scene billet inserts, Godfather Customs carbon-fiber handle, and Fibernetics tonneau cover. He added carbon-fiber door handles, APC taillights, and Solar Gard window film. Todd also added an Allstar bedliner and a billet Bow Tie and antenna. He keeps a look out for cops with his Street Scene mirrors, and he lights the way with high- intensity headlights.

He knew he had gone off the deep end when he started to modify the interior. The stock bucket seats were redone in gray tweed and white leather. The panels were also customized with tweed and leather, and he even added blue lasers in the rear. He painted the cluster surround and added a set of APC Indiglow gauges. The center console has been covered in tweed with the lower half in white vinyl. He added aftermarket power windows and door locks along with a billet shifter handle. A third jump seat was added to match the interior.

The sound system consists of a JVC head unit with Planet Audio five-channel amps, 5 ½-inch front speakers, 6 ½-inch rear speakers, and two 10-inch subwoofers. An overhead console was added with micro switches to control the neon and laser in the X-cab of the truck for the fiberglass sub enclosure. Carbon-fiber pedals finish it off.

Can you believe this truck has white engine accessories that actually stay white? Or that this is Todd’s work truck, which travels 600 miles a week? We are totally impressed. Todd’s engine bay has been dressed up with white split loom, a Tsunami yellow-top battery, and a Ractive Super Flow air filter with a polished intake. The exhaust system is a 2 ¾-inch stainless steel Dynomax system with polished Z28 tips from RK Sport.

When we asked Todd how he’d be able to part with his outrageous X-treme, he told us that there is no way he is going to give it back now. He assured us that he is going to buy it back when the lease is up…and then he’ll really start to modify it.
