War Sport
Who: Phil Landra
Where: Fairchild AFB, Washington
What: '03 Dodge Dakota "Sport"

Phil's Dakota Sport X has a Cervinis Sniper body kit, Reflections cowl-induction hood, Pearl White PPG paint, 17-inch Milanni "Bitchen 554" wheels on 275x55R17 Toyos, and a soft tonneau by Checkmate products. As far as the motor, he went with the 3.9L just to be different. A MagnaFlow after-cat exhaust, K&N cold-air system, Power Tower, and touch of nitrous oxide really help to get the Dodge moving. A five-speed manual trans and the typical 10-bolt make up the rest of the drivetrain, but with a set of Richmond 4.56 pro gears in the differential, the truck launches pretty hard. On the interior, he's added a Panasonic 9800 head unit, Boston mids and tweets, JL 10-inch subs, and two 800-watt Kenwood amps. A PlayStation II and a Lanzar 7-inch TFT monitor enhance game play and movies. The lighting is by APC and the multicolor underbody LEDs are made by Plasmaglow. In the last four shows attended, Phil's won three Best Truck awards and one Best Neon Display - out of 380 import cars! He hopes to add some cool graphics later, but that won't be until he gets home from his deployment.

The Way I Want It
Who: Brandon Lincecum
Where: Georgetown, Louisiana
What: Chevy S-10

Brandon got his frame-layin' S-10 up to par with Belltech 2-inch spindles, a Suicidedoors.com six-link suspension, and Firestone airbags. Air pressure, 145 pounds worth, quickly inflates the 'bags through an AIM switch box and 1/2-inch air lines. Two VIAIR 450c chrome compressors and 10 gallons of storage operates the 2500-series 'bags on each corner and a big truck air horn. Sitting under the Checkmate flush fiberglass bedcover is tube work the covers the notch and rolling stock. A smoothed tailgate handle, roll pan, and Goodmark cowl-induction hood finish off the smoothing tricks. KMC Stealths on 225/40R18s fit under the frame layer, and make for a little wheel tuckin'.

Where: Clyde, Ohio
What: '01 GMC Sonoma
