One of the cool things about our jobs here at Four Wheeler is that we get to see a vast variety of different rigs. Modifications differ by region, but one thing that stays constant is that behind each rig is a real person. These folks put their heart and soul into their machines. Truly, they make the wheeling world go 'round.
Here is a six-pack of rigs we've shot in our travels. They're packed with cool stuff and they run the gamut of build styles. Most obviously, they reflect their individual owners' needs and desires.
Jerome Gordon received this rig as a bone-stock early high-school graduation gift. Over the years it slowly morphed into a nice-looking owner-built daily driver.
