In life, change is inevitable. There's no stopping it, putting it on layaway, or slowing it down. Change is one of those things that you either roll with or shy away from. In the end though, all of us must cope and deal with it, regardless of what our mindset is. However, in the custom classic truck galaxy one branch of change is all in the head.

Styles, trends, fashions, and such all change in the truck community. Year to year and decade to decade we have seen a lot of things come and go-and a lot of things stick around. No one has any control over those changes in the hobby, but there's one thing each individual does have a choice about: to customize, or not to customize. If you ask me, I'll spout off my answer before your question is even finished: customize!

I don't care if your plans call for some radical custom work, or simple things like switching door handles or trim. Don't think twice-go for it. Leaving things stock is flat out boring, period. Building something that suits your tastes and personality is what it is all about. Modifying things to what you think looks best-and I'm talking mild to wild-is the only way to go.

For my tech stories this month I've rounded up a couple of stories, one mild and one wild, that strictly deal with customizing your truck. What are they? I guess you'll just have to find out, so keep pushing forward and read on! For the record, both topics of discussion are things you will find on my truck. I'm no (insert any up-and-coming, young Hollywood tabloid mainstay here who flip-flops from one side to the other)-preaching hypocrite.

When it comes to custom trucks I like seeing the creativity, design, and effort put in by individuals to mold and shape what they think a truck should look like. After all, if it wasn't for all these movers and shakers over the past decades, none of the styles and trends that we've seen come and go would have ever been presented. So, don't be afraid to customize your ride, because you never know, maybe you'll start the next truck craze revolution.Dakota Wentz
