Nick Crouch & Surface DVD - Radical Renderings
If you spend any time on the Interwebs looking at custom truck pages, you have seen the handiwork of Nick Crouch and Surface DVD. In fact, a couple of the highest-ranking Facebook posts Truckin has ever posted were Nick's rendered versions of new truck models that we released just hours before! That said, part of Nick's signature is that he spends a lot of time on the details. He tries to make sure everything he does stands out from the crowd. He also does what he can to help the scene by not charging an arm and a leg for the amount of work he puts into his renderings—sometimes 20 to 30 hours. The renderings he enjoys doing most are the unique ones that you don't see every day, mostly because he wants to see them come to life. Nick told Truckin that he has a lot of ideas he's never shown people and after doing this for 15 years it's probably time to release them in an art book. We will see what happens!

This '08 Mazda Tribute is a unibody SUV that's being body dropped by Andy Day at All Day Fab. It's my personal vehicle and I wanted something no one else had done before. The Ford Escape was my number-one choice, but I'm doing this build on a budget so the Mazda was the way to go; all it needed was a face-lift to transform it into an Escape.
RJ Swanson's '03 Trailblazer LS is getting a 3-inch stock floor body drop at Jeremy Rice's shop Tre5 Customs. He first decided to do this Trailblazer as a project because it was something that doesn't get built that often. It just might be the only one body dropped on the West Coast. He didn't want it to be "just another mini-truck," and he is well on his way to achieving his goal.
