Jeremy Cook

Editor, Truckin 275 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.

If you’ve been reading Truckin for a while, then you know that we’re not the type that lets a lot of time go by in between projects. After wrapping up a couple lifted GM builds, we figured it was high time to get a Ford in the mix. We happened to have a bone stock

Installing a 6.5-Inch Lift on a GM 2500HD
One of our favorite trucks to get our hands on is a late(ish)-model GM truck. With a rich aftermarket of just about anything you can imagine, the sky is really the limit once we get one in our possession. In this case, a pristine 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500HD 4×4 landed in our lap, and we

Installing a Holley 750 on our C10 SBC
Many years ago, a certain enthusiastic magazine editor was making good progress on his C10 project, but then that same editor decided it would be cool to have two C10 projects going simultaneously, and the rest is history. Well, more like history still waiting to be made. To be fair, there has been a ton
