This car-crushing fullsize belongs to Allen Hazel, who runs an automotive repair shop in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Allen claims the two cars under his '91 GMC 3500 Crew Cab belong to customers who failed to pay their bills on time. Ouch! The truck features a fuel-injected 5.7L engine mated to a 4L80E automatic transmission. An NV205 transfer case splits the torque to a Dana 60 front axle and a 14-bolt rear axle. A 6-inch Rough Country suspension lift provides clearance for a set of 38x13 Super Swampers mounted on 16x10 Baja wheels.

Chris Patelos of Boiling Spring Lakes, North Carolina sent us this picture of his '01 Ford F-150 sporting a 4-inch Tuff Country suspension lift and a 3-inch body lift. Tires are 31-inch Mickey Thompson Baja Claw radials mounted to 16x8 Americ an Racing Baja wheels. The drivetrain is completely stock. The bed has been Rhino-lined and chrome accents have been added to set the truck apart.

Matt DuFore of Romulus, Michigan is the owner of this '94 Ford Bronco. It features 6 inches of suspension lift and a 3-inch body lift. That creates enough room for 38.5-inch Super Swampers on aluminum wheels. A stock 5.0L V-8 gets help from a set of BBK shorty headers and dual Flowmaster mufflers. Matt enjoys playing at the sand dunes and in his local mud bogs.

Phil and Christine Yazzie enjoy exploring the sandstone canyons of northeastern Arizona in their '86 GMC pickup. The truck is mostly stock, with the exception of 33-inch tires and Rancho RS 5000 shocks. Phil added six KC DayLighters to help the two find their way home to Chinle, Arizona after a long day of discovery.
