what’s with all the suvs?

One of the hardest—and often most rewarding—parts of the job is finding vehicles we can modify for your viewing pleasure. A lot of times, it’s simply finding a late-model truck on which to bolt the latest and greatest parts. Other times, we focus on full-blown custom projects with many installments, like our current Project Speedbump or Over/Under. But some of my favorites are the middle-of-the-road–type trucks, the ones that only receive a handful of mods that make a dramatic difference in their appearance, or even their performance. We have a whole round of vehicles coming up, but I noticed a handful of them are SUVS: three Suburbans and an SUV to be exact. Everyone knows I’m a big fan of SUVs, but how do you guys feel about them? I feel…

radical renderings

RENDERINGS BY THOR More than eight years ago, Tristan Pengelly decided to merge his love of vehicles and his artistic talents to render rides for others who shared his passion but did not possess the skills to carry out their vision. He began digitizing dreams for clients under the name Renderings By Tristan. Over the years, one client led to another, and each small connection opened up a world of automotive enthusiasts with a need for his services. In just a few short years, he took his small business and turned it into a full-time occupation. His father, Craig, who is also self-employed, went through the many ups and downs that arise when living without a safety net of sorts. It was a learning experience for Tristan to have seen that…

segment-best towing in professional-grade package

Last month, you learned a bit about the ’19 Ram Heavy Duty, a truck that boasts an available 1,000–lb-ft Cummins turbodiesel and a maximum towing capacity of 35,100 pounds. But, the modern truck market being what it is, you knew the other big-truck players wouldn’t allow Ram to rest on its laurels for long. And so it is that the ’20 GMC Sierra HD was revealed at a private event in San Diego, with some official powertrain specifications following mere weeks later that put the Ram Heavy Duty (as well as the ’19 Ford F-Series Super Duty) in its place. Same Duramax, Same Power, Big Towing In the last several years, we’ve watched as General Motors allowed its heavy-duty trucks to languish at the bottom of the numbers game. When the previous GMC…

skin deep

The saying “beauty is only skin deep” is true for most aspects of the world. In the age of social media, when everything is judged by the exterior and appreciated for what is seen, it’s good to have someone like Erik Berthelot around to show us differently. An employee at NFamus in Mansfield, Texas, Erik was taught how to build a truck from the ground up by sheetmetal experts Keith, Marcos, and Neil. The experience he received there is invaluable, and when it came time to demonstrate his newly gained talents, he began searching for the right canvas. “I already had my mind set on building an ’88-to-’98–style truck,” Erik tells Truckin. “So I began the search.” He had already designed the frame in AutoCAD, and then he found the truck…
