4x ResponseAs a disaster relief worker and a member of the Search and Rescue team for the local Sheriff's Department, Roger Woodcock and his '88 Chevy Suburban get plenty of time off road. The modifications on his vehicle include a 6-inch Cepek suspension lift with a 3-inch Performance Accessories body lift and 36x14.50 Super Swamper tires. A beefed-up Turbo 400 transmission behind the 350 small-block with a Gibson after-cat exhaust and headers provide extra off-road punch. In the interior, two-way communication is provided by Kenwood, Motorola, and Yaesu. Bucket seats, tinted windows, a Con-Ferr roof rack, and an Alpine security system round off the list of extras.
Four-Wheelin' RangerJon Burnett from Paso Robles, California, is only 17 years old but spends most of his time and energy customizing his off-road machine. Thus far, his 2000 Ford Ranger is outfitted with a 3-inch body lift and a 2-inch suspension lift to go with the Rancho RS 5000 shocks. Underhood is a True Rev cold-air intake system, a Superchip, and an after-cat Flowmaster exhaust system. Exterior goodies include APC clear marker lights, APC Euro taillights, and a billet grille. For the interior, Jon installed a Sony Xplod Deck with a Kicker amp, Infinity 5x7 speakers, and a Rockford Fosgate 10-inch sub. Other extras are P285/75R16 Mickey Thompson Baja Radial MTX tires, Nu Image flame gauges, OBX racing pedals, and a remote starter.
Doleshal's Z71This Chevy Z71 truck belongs to Brian Doleshal from Boulder City, Nevada. The 6-inch Pro Comp lift on Brian's truck offers plenty of room to feature 15x8-inch Eagle Alloy wheels wrapped with 33x12.50R15 Goodyear Wrangler MT/R rubber. The boost in the power department comes from a Flowmaster exhaust and an aftermarket chip. The truck also has a Kenwood CD player that powers three JL 8-inch subwoofers, and the windows have limo tint.
