2004 Chevy Silverado 2WD 1500 Off Road Truck - Whompable Daily Driver

Posted in Features on October 1, 2009

There's unfortunately always been an alarming ratio of guys to girls in the off-road arena. So we always crack our necks when we catch a glimpse of longer hair blowing in the open driver's window of some lifted truck. And if that truck is getting whomped on, it's like adding sugar on top of bacon. We caught up (barely) with Wendi Brod in her 2004 Chevy while she was out playing around in Gorman, California. Wendi and her friend, Emil, built most of the truck themselves and made a nice daily driver for work and play. When the tires started coming off the ground, we grabbed cameras and started shooting.
