Never Stop Dreamin'
Who: Buster and Dee Isbell
Where: Leighton, Alabama
What: '05 Tundra
This month's choice for Operation Spring Clean (aka Win Our Junk) is Buster and Dee Isbell with their '05 Toyota Tundra. The truck's exterior has been dressed up with stainless steel nerf bars, a billet grille, a Sir Michaels roll pan, and an ARE color-matched tonneau cover with spoiler. To get away from running a single-color paintjob, a combination of graphics, pinstriping, and a mural was added. The stock rolling attire wasn't good enough, so a set of Mossa wheels with Pirelli Scorpion rubber was bolted up, along with a 2.5/3.5 static drop to help fill in the wheelwell gap. In addition to the K&N FilterCharger intake system and a Flowmaster exhaust, more paint was sprayed and pinstriping was laid down to give the engine compartment visual appeal. Finishing off the truck, the seats and door inserts were treated with orange and brown suede. So, for all the hard work that went into this truck, he will receive our personal accessory kit.

Dual Personality
Who: Mike Epsten
Where: Tucson, Arizona
What: '01 Ford Expedition 4x4
There are several things that Mike has added to this ride. He started by installing a 2-inch Ground Force lowering kit and a set of 22-inch Zinik alloy wheels with Falken tires. As far as exterior mods, he added a Street Scene Gen 2 front valance with upper and lower billet grilles and replaced the stock lighting with APC projector headlights and Euro clear corners. On the inside, upgrading the sound system was a must, so the stock unit was scrapped in favor of an Alpine CD head unit with iPod docking station. Two 12-inch MTX subwoofers that are powered by a 760-watt Sony Xplod amp handle notification of his presence.

Deja Vu
Who: Jerame Hugunin
Where: Burlington, Kansas
What: '03 Dodge Ram
They say every person has a twin. Does that go for trucks, as well? After seeing this submission, we would have to say yes. Jerame Hugunin's '03 Dodge Ram looks just like Servando Davilla's Ram that we ran in our Readers' Rides awards in our Oct. '06 issue. Everything that has been performed on both trucks is the same only the brands have changed. Some of the products that were used in Jerame's truck build are McGaughy's, Reflexxion, Doug Thorley's Headers, Super Chips, MagnaFlow, Sir Michaels, SnugTop Street Scene, and MRK Group.

'Dime 'Bag
Who: Kurtis Sellen
Where: Youngstown, Ohio
What: '98 Chevy S-10
Kurtis' standard cab S-10 started life as a pretty clean little driver. However, there was something about driving a stock-height, plain-looking truck that wasn't exactly appealing to Kurtis. Therefore, he began to tinker with his truck, adding an air-ride system by Air Ride Technologies with the Road Grater lowering kit in back and Shockwaves up front. Rolling attire consists of 17-inch American Racing Torq-Thrust IIs. Kurtis felt that modifying the outer skin of his truck was now a necessity, so he had the door and tailgate handles shaved and added a roll pan, a billet gas door, a cowl hood, carbon-fiber mirrors, clear corner lights, and taillights. Then, he coated the truck in a bright-green shell.

Truck Savvy
Who: John Garcia
Where: Camden, Arkansas
What: '94 GMC Sierra
John Garcia has been working on his truck for a few years and has transformed this truck into awesome show-winner. Most of the work on the truck has been done by John, himself, which includes shaved door handles, third brake light, taillights, and tailgate. The interior of the truck is Kenwood-themed, with four Kenwood 12s, all Kenwood amps, and Kenwood neon dash made into the console. To finish off the truck, John felt he needed a few more items so he installed a 4/6 drop, 22-inch wheels, and a sliding rag top.
