The Crappy Gas Mileage From a Quick Truck Award
Who: Matt Thompkins
Where: Aurora, IL
What: '99 Dodge Dakota R/T
Suspension: Stock
Engine: Blown 5.9L V-8 / Powerdyne supercharger pushing 6 psi of boost / MSD Ignition system / Taylor plug wires / Gibson headers and after-cat exhaust system / 180-degree thermostat
Wheels/tires: Stock
Interior: Custom A-pillar gauge pod
Audio/video: Stock
Body Mods: Mopar tonneau cover / Bed Rug bedliner
We Say: The 5.9L V-8-powered Dakota is a screamer right out of the box and also perhaps one of the most underrated high-performance pickups of all time. It flat-out hauls butt and has piss-poor fuel economy to prove it. Matt's is even faster and probably worse in the fuel economy department, but who cares?

The Baddest Truck on the Jobsite Award
Who: Anthony Pueblo
Where: Kentwood, MI
What: '00 Ford F-150 4x4
Suspension: 4-inch Rancho suspension lift
Engine: 4.6L V-8 / K&N filtercharger / throttle-body spacer / larger injectors / computer chip
Wheels/tires: 17-inch Antera / 37x12.50R17 BFGoodrich radial All-Terrain T/As
Audio/video: Nope
Body Mods: 3-inch body lift / 32 percent darker tint on the windshield, so he can see where he's going in the dark
We Say: If you have to drive your sport truck to work, then you might as well make it look cool, and if you have a hard time finding a parking spot at the job site, then think outside the box like Anthony. Hey, Anthony, next time stand on the other side of the truck where the sun is shining when you take the photo. Your truck would have looked much cooler that way.
