Custom Trucks at Wheels and Deals: 'MERICA.

Here at Wheels and Deals, we see a larger variety of vehicles on a daily basis than most folks do in an entire year. Many times, the cars that touch our lot have been modified and customized to the owners personal specifications. Recently, three of the coolest, baddest, most capable trucks on the planet have graced our humble home. From left to right we have a 2001 Ford F-150 Lariat 4wd, a 2000 Ford Excursion Extreme 4wd, and a 2002 Chevy Silverado 2500HD 4wd. Each truck has extensive upgrades to pretty much anything you look at, namely the suspension lift kits that make these trucks what they are. You can see more specs after the break.

2002 Ford F-150 Lariat: $17,999
This particular truck has a 14" pro lift, three 12" subs, one 15" sub, five amps, custom road legal mudflaps, cold air intake, retractable running boards, and brand new 40" tires. It's as loud as it looks and can handle any terrain you throw in its direction. 

2000 Ford Excursion Extreme: $23,500
Next in line is the 6.8L, 10cyl. Kenne Belle supercharged monster seen above. It was featured on the cover of 4x4 magazine, and for good reason. It looks like someone bought it brand new, flipped through an off-roading catalog and hand picked all the best parts to throw on this beast. It has everything from a heavy duty winch, some serious off-road lights, and 38" superswamper tires. What more could you ask for?

2002 Chevy Silverado 2500HD: $13,000
In my opinion, this truck is the most daily drivable of the three. There are no exterior modifications other than what he did with the suspension. It has a monstrous 8.1L V8 under the hood, so it has enough power to get out of its own way. The tires and brakes are brand new sitting on a professionally done 6" lift. Inside there are a couple TV's that can play your kids' favorite movies or shows, and the the high-end Viper alarm will make sure no one will mess with your ride while you're away. (Not to mention it has a way better turning radius, no offense Ford guys.)

All that being said, each truck has pro's over the other, and vise versa. Personally, I would take the Excursion over the other two, only because it has a big, fat supercharger on a gargantuan V10. I'm telling ya, forced induction makes me feel all fluttery inside. Don't judge me. Just come down to Wheels and Deals and check'em out yourself. 3035 El Camino Real, Santa Clara, CA, 95051.
