H3 Adventurer
Ryan Gibbs is from Locust Grove, Georgia. His '05 H3 is mostly stock for now. It has been leveled to fit 315/75R16 Mickey Thompson Baja Claws on stock wheels. It also has a K&N cold-air intake system. From the looks of this picture, it seems Ryan is one of the few H3 owners who actually wheels the newest member of the Hummer brand. Way to go, Ryan!

Big Black Surprise
This '79 Ford Bronco is owned by Matthew Baquet of Ville Platte, Louisiana. It features a set of 36-inch Super Swamper IROK tires and has a 6-inch suspension lift. Matt's girlfriend Jonie Fontenot sent in this photo to surprise him.

Northeast Ram
Bob Amlaw of Chicopee, Massachusetts, sent in this shot of his '04 Dodge Ram. The truck is powered by a 5.7L Hemi and features upgrades such as a Zex nitrous system and a Suncoast Creations Ram Air/Heat Extractor Hood. Underneath, there's a Revtek 6-inch suspension lift, a pair of Superlift Torx Max ladder bars, and a set of 37-inch Toyo MTs mounted on Weld Slingblade 8 wheels.

Mudding on Dubs
Anthony Scruggs of Houston, Texas drives this '04 F-150 Super Crew Lariat. It has a 2 1/2-inch leveling kit up front, and an Add-A-Leaf in the rear. The engine has been upgraded with an Airaid cold-air intake, Edelbrock throttle body, Superchip tuner, and a custom dual exhaust with high-flow catalytic converters. Anthony also added a pair of Ranch Hand bumpers. For traction, there's a Detroit Locker in the rear axle, and both axles have been changed to 4.11:1 gearing. Anthony did most of the work himself, and plans to install a new Warn PowerPlant winch and a Rancho 4-inch suspension lift. The rig rides on 305/55 Nitto Terra Grapplers wrapped around 20-inch American Racing Mojave wheels.

Dual Sport Dodge
Pete Dudley of South Glens Falls, New York, drives this '04 Dodge Ram 2500 Cummins turbodiesel. The truck features a factory limited slip in the rear, and Pete added Mag-Hytec diff covers to both the front and rear axles. It rides on a Skyjacker 2.5-inch lift, which barely clears the 35-inch Interco TrXus M/T tires on DC-1 wheels. Dual Optima Red Tops along with a factory high-output alternator provide plenty of juice, while an AEM Brute Force intake, modified stock turbo, and 5-inch stainless exhaust provide extra "motivation" when needed. The factory rear bumper was also modified with a jigsaw to accept two 3x5-inch work lights for salt spreading and any nighttime repairs.
