Jeremy Cook

Editor, Truckin 225 Articles

Jeremy Cook was born into a family of drag racers so he can truly say going fast and looking good doing it is in his blood. From day one Jeremy was out in the shop with Dad wrenching and getting dirty, or taking apart his toys to make them work better. By high school, he had amassed a nice collection of perpetually “under-construction” vehicles that included a ’71 Chevy K5, a ’68 Camaro convertible, and a ’55 VW oval, thereby achieving his goal of having one of the biggest, fastest, and lowest rides in the neighborhood. Having met a few magazine guys at shows and friends’ shops, it always stuck in Jeremy’s head that it might be a fun career path. During college, he spent all of his free time in the southwestern desert helping to campaign a class 7 Toyota in the SCORE series. After graduating Cal State Long Beach right about the time when the dot.commers were all jumping out of windows, he gave it a shot and ended up working for Truckin magazine. He went on to work for a handful of different truck magazines over the years and has shot covers for many more. He’s currently come full circle and is the Editor in Chief at Truckin Magazine. For fun, Jeremy builds custom vehicles that range anywhere from custom trucks to airbagged Cadillacs to old Schwinn bikes and runs a yearly bicycle poker run for charity, or just hangs out on the Southern California Beach.

One-Day Suburban Build: Part One
“Mom’s grocery getter” is a term we throw around that loosely describes that other vehicle that is part of your household. Not the commuter, not the tow pig, you know–the other one. It’s not even necessary that the mom of the family drive it. It’s usually some form of SUV, and it’s even cooler when

Brothers Show & Shine 2019
We can’t even remember a time when there wasn’t a Brothers Show & Shine to go to every year in the middle of the summer in SoCal. We remember the big move from a school parking lot to the park on the edge of Orange County many years ago, and remember when just a couple

2003 Chevy Silverado- Avoiding the Shaft
Most people don’t think about replacing the U-joints on their truck until they hear the telltale whine. That’s exactly what happened to us and Project Over/Under recently. With the truck basically complete, we’ve mostly been enjoying it, but we’ve also done a little fine-tuning. We changed out the exhaust—our former kit was rubbing in a

Toys For Trucks Lifts a 2018 Sierra HD With CST, Method & Toyo
