Custom Truck Thursday
First of all, everyone at Don Wheaton would like to thank the people that made our first Custom Truck Thursday post so popular. We knew our readers liked talking about these incredible machines, but it would appear we still underestimated the interest. With that in mind, we are showing off three more entries that have been submitted to us for the contest. Remember, if you would like to win $500 in accessories for your pickup truck, there are two ways to enter the contest. First, you can email a photo of your truck to our Custom Fleet Manager, Brandi Martin, at email@example.com. Or you can click the button below and be taken to the official contest page with an entry form. Now, on to this week Custom Truck Thursday submissions.
Our first submission shows that highly capable, customized pickup trucks are not just for the boys. Margo S. received this 2014 GMC Sierra with the All-Terrain appearance package as a surprise gift. Some of the enhanced features that are included with Sims’ new pickup are a tonneau cover, a spray-in bedliner and molded black mud flaps. Sims’ custom truck also included a bit of 3M window tint. If you are thinking about giving somebody a customized pickup truck as a gift, we will provide bow.
It makes perfect sense to use that if you are going to spending a lot of time working in a pickup truck, you may as well have the components added that are going to make it yours. This is exactly the thought that Allan M. had with his 2015 GMC Sierra 2500 SLT. There is already a fair amount of comforts built into the SLT trim of this pickup truck. But if Allen is going to be working hard with it he is going to need a few custom additions. He added a wooden box liner and custom mud flaps. There are some special considerations to be had when working “’til the cows come home.” To help mitigate some of the potential mess, he also had custom weathertech floor mats installed.
No definition of customization uses the term complicated. Kenny M. submitted this photo of his 2011 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 1LT. This is as basic as a pickup truck gets. Morgan doesn’t need chrome exhaust tips. He doesn’t need 3M protective wraps or window tinting. What Morgan needed was a pop-up tent that fit in the cargo bed to keep him off the ground. That more than counts as customization in our book. Morgan added, “It’s a truck and I treat it like one.” Well said, sir.
This latest group of Custom Truck Thursday photos prove that custom truck owners are just as unique as the vehicles they drive.
