Where: Springfield, Mo
What: '00 S-10 Extreme
Chad's '00 S-10 started life as a run-ofthe- mill daily driver. However, there was something about driving a stock-height,plain-looking truck that wasn't exactly appealing. Therefore, he began to tinker with his truck, adding a five-link with Super Pivot by SuicideDoors and a set of SuicideDoors' upper and lower control arms. Rolling attire consists of 20x8.5-inch Boss wheels, wrapped in 245/35R20 Kumho tires. Chad felt that modifying the outer skin of his truck was now a necessity, so he had the door handles, antenna, hood squirters,third brake light, and tailgate handle shaved, and added a roll pan. He changed out the front end with one from a Sonoma and ditched the factory body kit, so he could lay the pinch on the ground with a 3-inch body drop. The interior is mostly stock but clean. Leather Envoy seats replace the cloth-covered stock ones, a Blazer center console was added, and new carpet was laid down to cover the added metal for the body drop.

What: '94 Chevy Silverado 1500
In 1994, John's father bought a brand-new Silverado, and from that day on, he has been in love with Chevy trucks. He was 18 at the time and had his own vehicle, but that bright-blue truck would get just as much attention as his car. John has spiffed up the exterior with new paint and shiny 20-inch chrome wheels, dressed in Nitto rubber. He also added more than 2,000 watts of stereo components throughout the cab and bed.Plans for the Silverado will be in the form of a drop kit, interior work, and custom pinstriping. "In 2004, the good Lord took my father to heaven," John says. "I decided I wanted to do a tribute to my father and customize his truck.I know that my dad is looking down and seeing everything I am doing and smiling big."
