CASH BRED OFF-ROAD

Written by

Weekend warriors are getting their fair share of attention from the customizing world and Cash Bred Off-Road out of Converse, TX is on a mission to showcase their talents to the UTV scene with their highly customized Polaris General.

When your shoe game is strong, the rest of the outfit follows suit, which is exactly the case for Complete Customs’ El Jefe GMC.

People reinvent themselves all the time, and the same holds true in the automotive world. Custom builds can transform into new iterations each year, allowing builders to test their creativity and skills without having to consistently shell out major paper for a new ride with each and every build. Such was the case for Jesus Aguiñiga and his 2010 Toyota Tundra.

Your very first build is always the most challenging. Just finally going out and starting it can be the most difficult part of it all, but it’s worth it in the end. Octavio “Tavo” Magana experienced this first hand after waiting a couple of years for the right timing to present itself, and 2016 was finally the year he finally came around to customizing a Jeep.

When you’re a heavy hitter in the off-road Jeep game, you have the biggest brands in the industry knocking at your door for collaborations, which was the case for Doetsch Off-Road. When BOLT Lock needed a badass display vehicle to showcase their newest products, they knew Dave Doetsch would do more than just deliver a customized Jeep – he’d go above and beyond to create an attention-grabbing build that would turn heads at any marketing event or car show it attends.

Ralph Holguin has a long history of blending the lines of street rods, lowriders, luxury and Pro-Touring style builds and developing his own unique custom rides. Such was the case with one of his more recent builds - a 1962 Lincoln Continental that garnered more than 3 million views on social media.

You might recall the name J.J. “DocZilla” Dubec from Issue 98, having gawked at his envious 2013 Liberty Walk Ferrari 458 (and of course his Liberty Walk Nissan GT-R) and now the doctor/automotive connoisseur is back with a killer Jeep Wrangler JK.

Jake Mitchell Mitchell, of Jake’s Custom Diesel, was the mastermind behind a 6-door Ford F-450 conversion called Poseidon’s Wrath, which was also one of our previous cover features. And now, he’s outdone himself with his latest creation dubbed “Iron Max.” As the name suggests, this build started out as a Duramax-powered 2015 Chevy Silverado 3500 HD Dually and was transformed into a custom 6-door show stopper that the Oklahoma-based shop is renown for.

PRIM8TE Jeep JK8

Written by
JK8s are increasingly popular builds in the off-road customization scene. Not only do they provide the ruggedness of a Jeep, but they also offer the look and convenience of a truck, combing for a two-for-one custom! When Rigid Industries challenged Tim Mills of Custom Motor Concepts for a unique build to have in their booth at SEMA 2015, he knew it had to be a JK8 from the start. “We had to come up with something that would stand out amongst all of the different show vehicles that would be present at SEMA,” he describes. “My idea was to simply build a vehicle that would be more comfortable out in the elements than it was in a show setting. This vehicle was built to be used and abused.”

Greg Yount has been a truck guy from day one. With a dad who was heavy into hot rod drag racing, it was only natural for him to grow up with that same passion.
In the customization game, it’s all about making your ride stand out from the rest, choosing the right parts to make that happen or just fabricating your own. Fab Fours is well known for creating their own mods that are anything but ordinary.
