Ekstensive Nightmare
Who: Trey Davis
Where: Bryn, Texas
What: '00 Chevy

Trey Davis of Bryn, Texas, had a dream. That dream was to have a topnotch custom dualie to cruise around in. One day, he purchased an '00 1-ton Chevy dualie with every intention of making it his dream truck. He took the truck to Bill at Ekstensive Metal Works in Houston, where the dualie was equipped with everything needed to make his truck perfect. The truck laid frame over the 19-inch APP wheels. Amps were mounted in the headliner, and massive amounts of audio and visual goods, a billet grille, billet dash accessories, and many others extras were added. The final mod was the 'bag job Ekstensive performed on the heavy hauler, including custom-built upper and lower control arms. With the truck in its final stages, Trey decided to show a friend, who wasn't familiar with the truck scene, what it was like to cruise slam-style.

The night started out good, but the story gets fuzzy from there. Trey says he and his friend woke up the next morning in the trauma unit. The end of Trey's letter says, "If you choose to put my ride in the magazine, please note to the readers to be careful of whom you decide to party with. Never drink something that hasn't been in your sights at all times." We can only assume that Trey may have drunk something that was spiked. The story doesn't say much about the other person in the truck; we hope they pulled through.

There was no contact information for Trey, so we contacted our friends at Ekstensive Metal Works to inquire about Trey and his story. They said the truck was bitchin', and coming from a shop such as Ekstensive, we know the job was a premium build. It's sad to read a story like this. Without knowing how Trey recovered, and looking at the photos, we'd say he is lucky to be alive. One thing is for sure: Don't mix your pleasures together if they include alcohol or drugs and driving. As lovers of fun, we like to have a good time, but it's imperative that you be responsible.

Tall Tacoma
Who: Brian
Where: Indianapolis
What: '03 Toyota Tacoma

Brian of Indianapolis put his '03 Toy' on a 6-inch Fabtech Suspension system and added a 3-inch body lift. This allowed enough room for Toyo's 35x12.5x18-inch mudders with 18x10-inch rims to sit nicely under the Towering Taco'. A Panasonic DVD player and dual stainless exhaust are other notable features.

Stuck On S-10
Who: Joshua Porte
Where: Rock Hill, South Carolina
What: '94 S-10

Joshua Porte of Rock Hill, South Carolina, says his dad, brother, and best friend helped him make the best-looking truck ever. They took his '94 S-series and dropped it on Belltech's spindles and springs, and added a Godfather Custom's roll pan and shot it in House of Kolor's Lapis Blue. The static drop sits on BOSS 20-inch rims and low-pro meats. After all that, they went sticker-crazy to form the wild graphics.

Clean Ram
Who: Darin Flanagan
Where: Tucson, Arizona
What: '02 Dodge Ram Sport

Darin Flanagan's Dodge Ram has received all the hookups since he purchased it a few years ago. It sits on 22-inch chrome KMC Thunder rims wrapped in Nitto tires, all the emblems were shaved off, and a Dodge emblem was put on the hood to make it look more like the SRT-10. Dual Flowmasters were installed to make sure everyone on Darin's block knows when he's coming. An Infinity system with a DVD player and a 7-inch plasma screen was put in so that whoever rides with Darin can relax with a clear view of their favorite movie. A prestige alarm was then installed to keep Darin's truck safe and Darin worry-free.

Untouchable F-150
Who: Shannon Jauch
Where: Newhall, California
What: '01 Ford Supercrew

This '01 Supercrew screams down the road thanks to a 3-inch Gibson exhaust and a K&N cold-air intake. Shannon also stuck some 20-inch spinners on each corner and dropped the truck 3 inches up front and 4 inches in the rear. A flame grille with a cowl-induction hood finishes off the look outside. Inside, Shannon installed a Kenwood DVD player with a 15-inch monitor and three 10-inch Kicker subwoofers. Next on the list are a set of 'bags and Lambo' doors. To paraphrase Shannon, Once it's finished, this will be one untouchable F-150.
