The people in the great state of Arizona are a little less wary of a person's choice of personalized license plates than the rest of the country. We're not 100 percent sure what Jeff Callahan was trying to get across with his plates, so we'll leave the explaining to him.
Jeff uses the unusual license plate and 'bag setup on his pimped out Hombre to try and pick up on the honeys everywhere he goes. With a ride like Jeff's, we're sure he probably has a few success stories to share. To make sure the ladies would notice him, Jeff went to town on his truck by installing a four-'bag setup using Firestone airbags for infinite adjustability. His ride tucks Vision 528 wheels and 255/35R20 tires, thanks to a 2-inch drop spindle from Belltech installed up front.
Jeff is well on his way to becoming totally deaf, thanks to his full Kenwood and Diamond Audio stereo system. This impressive system starts with a Kenwood KVT910 head unit installed in-dash and a DVD player. Kenwood 502 and 401 amplifiers boost serious power through the four 12-inch Diamond Audio M3 subs firing from the bed, along with the Diamond Audio Hex 4-1/2- and 6-1/2-inch mids.
After Jeff was satisfied with all he'd done, he rolled his truck into JP Koncepts in Mesa, Arizona, for some tweed work and upholstery on a pair of Honda Civic seats, his headliner, and the floor. Afterward, he and his evolving Isuzu headed right on over to Gooby's in Tempe to get its own booth time. Once there, the truck was sprayed with a PPG Blue base and given House of Kolors Platinum Pearl flames.
With 48 inches of subwoofers pounding bass, a DVD player spinning up the latest movies in-cab, adjustable 'bags, 20-inch wheels blingin', a sweet paintjob, and a plate that reads "FN BAGS," how could you not get chicks?
