What: 1998 Chevy S-10
Where: Sandy, Utah
Mods: Supercharged Vortex motor with custom exhaust, four-link rear with a C-notch and ’bagged all around. Custom roll bar and ported sub box to support the flex of having the top removed. Custom interior with racing seats, custom gauge pods on the A-pillar, and a fiberglass smoothed dash.

This is my first truck build and it took just over five years because I have done most of the work myself.”
