We Also Had to Look Closer to Spot the Trick Details on This Bow Tie
John Bruno is one man who gave us a better peek into the ways of making trucks look good. John not only owns this super-clean 94 Silverado Extra Cab, he also owns California Truckin Concepts in Rancho Cordova, California, and hes quite experienced when it comes to customizing haulers. Several subtle aspects of his truck reflect his automotive ingenuity. You can see his expertise in things like a small thumb-hole in the door that looks like a frenched antenna, which is actually a custom door latch. It can also be witnessed in the mold work that filled all the bed and roof seams. You may see it in the masterfully executed hood-lengthening move, which eliminates the cowl, hides the wipers, and still opens without a scrape. Or you might catch a glimpse of Johns skill in the tiny space between the cab and bed, which was created by moving the entire bed forward. Of course, things like this not only illustrate the builders abilities, they also give the truck an appeal like no other.
Speaking of no other, Johns truck was the guinea pig for his shops custom, fully bolt-in Air Link suspension system. At the time of the installation, no other vehicle had a suspension like it. Johns package was extremely easy to install, and it gives the truck a beautiful, adjustable stance. Up front, fabricated arms accommodate the airbags, while the rear is cushioned by air springs that U-bolt to the rearend. Johns custom Super C-notch makes room for the rear bags. John put this all together so he could have a primo ride while covering the many miles he drives every day.

And when he points out the things on his truck that youve never seen before on any other truck, youll realize that its little details like this that contribute to making the whole deal a hard-to-beat crowd-pleaser.
