Boss Lightning
Jose L. Garcia's '01 ford svt lightning
Berwyn, Illinois
We Say: Jose bought the truck used in '02 with 39,000 miles on the clock. He uses it as a weekend and nice weather truck, with the occasional trip to the 1/4-mile track. It has a best run of 12.85 at 105 mph, and he had the truck on a dyno recently and made 395 hp and 470 lb-ft.

Sinister Suv
Jason Sprague's '07 Gmc Denali
San Antonio, Texas
We Say: Jason's Denali not only has big 24-inch rollers, but it has the big brakes to slow all that weight down. Jason didn't say if he plans to mod the truck anymore, but considering these were fully loaded from the factory he's probably happy with the big-baller rims.

He Painted It Himself
Rodney Hardman's '00 Chevy S-10
Clarksburg, West Virginia
We Say: Rodney took it upon himself to paint the truck and it came out great. He is on the fence and can't decide whether to slap a turbo onto the 2.2L or just swap it out for an LT1, or LS1 V-8. Either way, if the engine swap comes out as good as the paint, this will be a bad truck. Oh, and you are welcome, Rodney. Your dad's '67 Chevrolet Stepside looked great in the August issue.
