7 Modded American Trucks on Autotrader

American trucks straight from the factory are getting more capable all the time. Whether it’s on-road or off-road performance, it’s crazy what you can buy from a dealership with trucks like the Ford F-150 Raptor and Ram 1500 TRX on the market.

However, there’s always room for improvement. The custom truck scene hasn’t gone anywhere. Here are some of the coolest modified American trucks on Autotrader, with something for everyone.

1986 Chevrolet C10

The Chevy C10 is a commonly customized truck because it’s a great blank slate for off-roaders, low-riders, and everything in-between. The one we see here has a modified 427 Big Block V8 with a claimed 650 horsepower rating. That’s just the beginning; it also has a two-tone paint job with checkered flag striping along with a custom interior. See Chevrolet C/K models for sale

This 1988 Chevy truck has been modified to look like an old Advance Design truck. The Chevy Advance Design series ran from 1947-1955 and would go on to inspire retro cars like the Chevy SSR and HHR. Along with the unique front end, this truck has American Racing wheels and a nice custom interior. See Chevrolet Silverado 1500 models for sale

The Hummer H1 is already a truck that refuses to be ignored. The one you see here is even more beastly. It has a list of modifications that’s too long to get into here, but it includes Lamborghini paint and a “Lamborghini-inspired” interior that reminds us of the LM002. This is the rig you’ll want when the zombie apocalypse hits — as long as you have almost $200K to spare. See Hummer H1 models for sale
