Altitude Adjusted 4 FunThe '01 Chevy Silverado Z71 pictured here is owned by Nick Mackery from Jacksonville, Florida. Not long after Nick purchased it, he added a few off-road accessories. For starters, the truck was given an altitude adjustment via a 3-inch body lift from Performance Accessories along with an additional 4-inch lift from Rancho. For improved off-road traction, Nick added 16x35x16.5 Super Swamper Boggers mounted on 12x16.5 Weld Super Single II wheels. For a final touch, Nick protected the bed with a Rhino liner.
Bronco with AttitudeJustin Buntil purchased this '73 Bronco for a mere $3,000. Then he beefed up its performance with a new 350-cid Chevy small-block - bored 0.30 over - an Isky cam, and a 600-cfm Edelbrock with a performer intake that's powered by a new 700-R4 transmission with a shift-improvement kit. To help the truck breathe better and add an extra punch, Justin installed Hedman headers and a Flowmaster exhaust. Pro Comp suspension provides a little off-road attitude with a 4-inch suspension lift in addition to the 3-inch body lift. Under the fenders are 35-inch Pro Comp tires on 15x10-inch Hellcat wheels. Justin plans to add a full rollcage, a new interior, and new paint.
