April 2004 Reader's Rigs

Corporal Patrick McCann of Bellevue, Nebraska, currently serving in Iraq, gets to wheel courtesy of Uncle Sam's toys-including this Hum-Vee, which he gets to drive around, while he's doing his job suppressing and pacifying bad guys. When he gets home to Bellevue, his buddies of Mudslinger Motorsports will surely be jealous.

This creation belongs to Tommy Remmer of Mt. Vernon, Kentucky. With his truck in true Kentucky agriculture attire, Tommy turns heads wherever he goes. Underneath all that John Deere Green paint is a '77 F-250 Ford powered by a Lincoln 460. The powerplant is mated to a C6 automatic, then coupled to a NP205. The monster tires are 9.5x24x41 on 6x24 tractor rims. Not using a lift with these tires meant lots of cutting to allow those monster pizza-cutter-like tires to fit. The axles are stock Dana 60 with a limited-slip in rear and an open Dana 44 in front. A trusty Warn 8274 winch sits up front.

At age 19, Ben Medeiro's '91 Dodge Ram 1/2-ton is the truck most teenagers dream of. The best part is, he built it from stock. With a 4-inch Trail Master lift and a 3-inch body lift, Ben was able to clear 36x14.5 Protrac High Roller tires on American Racing rims. The 5.2L powerplant can breathe more easily thanks to an Edlebrock air-cleaner housing and a K&N filter. The rest of the drivetrain is stock Mopar. On the front of the truck, a pushbar holds extra lighting, and the sport bar in the bed serves as a mount for even more lights. Inside, Ben's got a 5-inch in-dash TV and a whole assortment of killer stereo goodies.
