A Pair Of Perfect Chevys

Most of us love heading out to the races hoping to catch our favorite off-road hero sailing around the course. The problem is, the races are usually quite a drive and watching all that glorious action makes us want to have some fun of our own. Driving three hours to a race knowing you have the same return trip doesn't leave us with a ton of confidence when it comes time to play in the dirt. A 200-mile tow bill isn't cheap.

Dave Hill and Rick Bray are the owners and fabricators of Fabrication Unlimited located in Lemoore, California. Their '08 Chevy 1500 Silverado 2WD trucks were built to chase, prerun and transport to and from the races. "It's a lot of fun knowing you can drive the same truck out you want to play with and know its built strong enough to make the trip back home after," said Dave. The days of having five project trucks surrounding the garage are over; people these days often can only afford one toy. Do what Dave and Rick did: Build it right.
