Standing TallThis Chevy Z-71 has been in a constant state of modification for the past three years, according to Chris Huss from Celina, Ohio. The 350 motor is basically stock with the exception of an AIRAID air filter and a Borla 2-1/2-inch Cat-Back dual exhaust. This Chevy is standing tall on 35x14.50x15 Thornbirds wrapped on 15x10-inch Eagle 589s. Also included is a 6-inch Pro Comp suspension life and a 3-inch Performance Accessories body lift. The aluminum skidplate and the Pro Comp ladder bars with shocks are nice additions, as are the Harwood cowl-induction hood and the head and taillight strobes. Chris has also added Smittybilt nerf bars and a Pioneer six-disc CD changer. Believe it or not, this Chevy Z-71 is still in a state of modification, and hopefully when Chris is all finished he will send in a great picture of his fully modified Chevy.
Bigger Is BetterDan Schultz is a firm believer that bigger is better, and sometimes that has been proven to be right. This '95 Ranger Splash 4x4 has 30-inch Wild Country Mudders, Baja foglights, and BackCountry nerf bars. Also included in this 4x4 are TFX dual outlet exhaust, four KC daylighters, and a custom rollbar. The interior is equipped with a six-disc CD player. This is just the beginning for Dan; he will go from a 4.0L to a 5.0L engine, and definitely go bigger in every way.
Two-Tone ImpressionNo one has been more impressed with a two-tone color scheme than Tom DeGideo. This Bronco's exterior is rust-free and in decent shape to boot. Its 302 V-8 (5.0L) only has 92,670 miles on it, which is great for a '90 Bronco. Tom will be swapping the stock 302 for a 460. Is that legal, you ask? It all depends on the year of the vehicle involved in the swap. Hopefully, Tom has a lot of time to plan out exactly what he wants to do and how, and maybe Tom will send in some great pictures of his Bronco and that sweet engine.
