There are radical trucks and then there are radical trucks. Jason and Theresa Contreras' '04 Ford F-150 FX4 is the latter. What's the difference, you ask? Well, their truck isn't radical because of visually complex paint or a ridiculous amount of lift-it's radical because it features a vast number of unique mods that combine to create a capable rig that looks great. The mods begin with an abundance of custom body modifications wrapped with eye-catching non-Ford-spec yellow paint. Then there's a vast array of custom interior and exterior tubing. Underneath is a flexy 8-inch suspension lift that retains the IFS. Oh, and it all wraps up with a variety of mind-boggling interior modifications.
So whether the Contrerases are commuting to their shop, L&G Enterprises in San Dimas, California, or exploring desert dunes, their radical late-model rig will not only catch people's eye, but chances are it'll turn their heads too.
