This Month's Best Shot
Redneck Ready
Who: Carl Stevens
Where: Sulphur Rock, Arkansas
What: '95 Dodge Ram 4x4
Carl and wife Janie built this Ram Arkansas wilderness-ready. This bad boy has 10 inches of lift to clear Mickey Thompson 16x38.5x15 Baja Claws, which are stretched over Mickey Thompson 15x12-inch Classic II wheels. Keeping the rolling stock under command is a set of Rancho dual steering stabilizers and a Rock Ram hydraulic assisted steering by AGR. An NS1 Ram hood helps the Magnum to breathe, allowing the V-8 to push the big meat through the help of a 4.56:1 gear ratio. The final fitment includes Muth review mirrors and New Vision graphics. The truck has 136,000 miles on it, with the stock paint on everything but the hood. Without a doubt, this is one loved Dodge.

Simply Xtreme
Who: Michael Vacca
Where: Fort Walton Beach, Florida
What: '04 S-10 Blazer Xtreme
The first thing Michael did when he got his Xtreme home was polish the pinstripes off. After that, he wrenched on a Flowmaster dual exhaust and Mac Performance cold-air intake, which help enhance the power. Diamond clear corners up front and euro taillights white off some of the colored lenses to give a clean look. Three-inch Belltech spindles and 4-inch Stylin' Concepts rear blocks set the Xtreme's attitude.

Family Effort
Who: Joshua & Tabitha Goodlet
Where: Hopkins, South Carolina
What: '96 Dodge Dakota
When Joshua decided to build his dream truck, he employed the help of his family to get the job done. The only other influences were his friends, Twisted Minds, and painter Joe Harry. To start, Joshua had his billet grille powdercoated black to match his dream build. The bumper cover was customized with functional cold-air intake ducts set behind the lower valance inlets. SnugTop's tonneau cover flushes the bed off to enhance the stealth appeal. The suspension was dropped by 2 inches up front, then leveled off with 4 inches out back. A set of 18-inch Pacer wheels was mounted to Nankang 225/40/18 meat to finish the exterior. Inside, Sunpro gauges, two 10-inch Orion subs, and 1,000 watts of Memphis Audio power provide all the custom touches. Joshua says, "Special thanks to Tabitha, her brother Shaun, Joe Harry, and most of all, Anita Baily."

Blue Truck
Who: Jeff Finch
Where: Alliance, Ohio
What: '99 Silverado
Jeff Finch thought it would be a great idea to personalize his '99 Silverado. He started with a set of Enkei Deep Six 20-inch wheels wrapped in Goodyear meats. He added drilled and slotted rotors, then wiped out a jar of red paint, painting his calipers. A Gibson dual exhaust, and a Mac Performance cold-air intake provide some extra ponies. A TransGo tranny shift kit gives the tranny a good firm shift. The lights were removed and replaced with TYC Elegante carbon-fiber-style rear taillights. The front was enhanced with carbon-fiber-style projector-style headlight covers. A Patriot by Swiss color-matched tonneau and polished-stainless fender trim finish off Jeff's ride.
