But at the end of the day, it’s up to the one person in the editor seat. With a happy winner generally comes some unhappy runners-up—with supporters of the truck owner having no problem letting us know we made the wrong choice. Picking the Best Of winners is a tough position to be in, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything, and I think we have the…

2020 street trucks awards

It always starts out innocent enough with a drop kit or airbag suspension setup, wheels and tires, and maybe some upgraded audio and simple exterior bolt-ons, but that only lasts so long. Pretty soon, the custom truck freak’s desire to take the build further and further takes over, and what was once the driver becomes yet another show truck. So much for self-restraint! Mike Barcia out of Tampa, Florida, bought a driver back in January 2001 to tow his full custom Isuzu show truck. The…
