OWNER: Chuck Jircik aka Chuck D
RIDE: 2002 Nissan Frontier
CLUB: No Regrets
Our minitrucker version of Chuck D might not be the lead of hip-hop greats, Public Enemy, but he is definitely a "Rebel without a Pause."
Chuck Jircik, aka Chuck D, hails from Tomball, Texas and is a proud member of No Regrets. They say everything is bigger in Texas, and to believe it, look no further than Chuck D's 2002 Nissan Frontier. Chuck knew when he started building his truck that Texas is one of the biggest custom truck communities with some of the baddest rides and that the competition would be fierce. But Chuck was lucky when he started laying out his plans for the killer Nissan and had a few tricks up his sleeve. It helps when you have some really good friends who happen to own a couple of local shops.

With friends like Trey Hall from Twizted Creationz and Tim Burress at Hypnotic Customs in Chuck's corner, they were able to help keep Chuck from making costly mistakes that can really slow down a project. Everything from the trick interior and stereo to the custom paint was all handled between the two shops. With their support, Chuck quickly had a show winner- even within the tough Texas show circuit.
Chuck knows more than anyone that it doesn't always just take a ton of money to build a killer feature truck, just the help of some really good friends. Speaking of his friends, we had to hold off on his photo shoot until Ernie Macias brought out his custom rear glass to Tex Mex. Chuck got the killer No Regrets back glass from Ryan, a member in Arizona. When Chuck was finally happy with his finished product and we were able to bring you some killer shots of one of the cleanest Frontier's around.
