Watch For Next Issue: On Sale 12/21/04
This month on truckinweb.comFeatureDraggin' DodgeOnce in a while, a clean Dodge Ram will show up on the show scene, and when it does we can't get our cameras out fast enough. Matthew Bradshaw's Arkansas-based Ram drags with the best of them, resting on Intro Pentia billet wheels and featuring a plethora of body alterations. Take a peek at some of the shots we ran out of room for.
FeatureSquare-body Bow Ties have been popping up on the scene rapidly in the last few years, and Rich Childers from Chesapeake, Virginia, has created this stunning '75 Longbox example. Rich's truck sports a built 355ci small-block Chevy with a Pro Charger and rolls low thanks to air suspension and a stunning Colorado Custom 18-inch front and 20-inch rear wheel combination. Look for this blue-pearl-based, orange-pearl-flamed beauty in our Mar. '05 issue, where the revival of this body style will be highlighted.
FeatureWe found this shaved and 'bagged '84 Chevy C10 at the Midnight Fantasies Lakefront Tour Show in Lake Charles, Louisiana, and couldn't believe how detailed and clean the truck was. Associate Editor Harley Camilleri didn't hesitate one bit, capturing this bad box-style on film. Check out all this ride's fiery custom tricks next month.
FeatureTruckin' always has its eyes open for cool S-10s, and this bright-yellow, body-dropped, and flamed standard cab snagged our focus enough to be rolled in front of our lenses for a feature shoot. Catch a glimpse of this extra-clean S-series in our next issue.
Show18th Annual Hot August NightsOur annual trek to Reno for Hot August Nights was filled with cool trucks and good times. You just can't beat a week of cackling headers, glistening paint, shiny chrome, and endless cruising. Catch a glimpse of some of the shots Tech Editor Bob Ryder couldn't squeeze into the printed event coverage.
TechnicalSuper-Size It!Excessively tall trucks have become a staple in the custom truck scene, and we recently witnessed the creation of one such truck at Off Road Unlimited in Burbank, California. The crew at ORU installed their 13-inch suspension kit on a late-model Super Duty and Truckin' was there to witness the intense wrench-turning action. Take a look at Truckinweb.com for more coverage on this insane suspension lift.
