It’s rare to find ’96 F-150s out there with 178,000 miles that look as sharp as Richard Kenny’s XLT Regular Cab. The Mississippi Gulf Coast contractor decided buying a new truck wasn’t in the cards this year so readers-ride-and-a-halUntitled-1he had his old work truck repainted, fit with a reupholstered seat, new carpet, and had a Backbone headache rack, Brute toolbox and tonneau cover installed like he saw in ProPickup. Spears Auto Repair also replaced the dual-fuel tank senders and pumps, fixed the window regulators and replaced the headliner and underhood liner. As for the 302 V-8, Kenny says, “Shoot, that ol’ motor is still good for another 100,000 miles.”

Jeff Obremski’s ’07 Tundra Double Cab SR5 tools around the Las Vegas in style as he goes about his custom bumper fabrication business between small contracting jobs. This “Hottest Work Truck” winner rides on BFG KM2 M/Ts on Rock Star wheels, with Firestone Ride Rite air suspension, a Viair air compressor underneath, and full-on N10CE custom bumpers and cargo rack system. Vision X and Oracle lighting works well around the Vegas night life.
