Favorite 4x4s And Hot New Trucks Take On The New Millennium

While reading this, the December, 2000 issue of OFF-ROAD, the new millennium is fast approaching. And so, it seems like an excellent time to take a look at some of the off-road community's favorite trucks from the previous millennium that have, after a few noteworthy upgrades, made the move into 2001, looking and performing better than ever.

Trucks based on fresh designs, such as Chevy's Silverado, are well equipped to handle the rigors of 2001, but even the General's finest received a few tweaks in the interest of improved performance and style. With that intro out of the way, let's look at what changes automakers have made to some of our favorite rides.
