  • 2003 Chevy Silverado – Menace

    The why often overshadows the how when it comes to building custom trucks.

    Most every truck enthusiast has one exact make and model hauler that they would like to own one day, and if they play their cards right, shape it into a true showstopping piece of machinery.
