Street Trucks’ 2022 Truck of the Year Awards, Let’s See the Who Made the Cut! Thanks to your votes online at StreetTrucksMag.com, we have a winner for 2022 Truck of The Year!
Truck of the Year – Mike Hill – 1991 Ford Explorer Standing out in a sea of modified vehicles takes something special—and that’s what Michael Hill from Edgewater, Florida, did with his 1991 Ford Explorer you see here. In 1998, Michael bought this truck when he was in school as something to get him around town. The Explorer had 33-inch tires, and Michael was known to bury it in mud on a regular basis. https://www.streettrucksmag.com/bagged-and-bodydropped-1991-ford-explorer/
Lifted Truck of the Year – James Stewart – 1974 Chevy K5 Blazer “After all that loss, I needed something to distract me,” James says. “I wanted something that I could focus on to keep my mind clear day or night, and I couldn’t think of a better way to do that than to build my high-school dream truck—an old-school Chevy K5 Blazer.” For the Full Story, Click Here! https://www.streettrucksmag.com/a-perfect-lifted-1974-chevy-k5-blazer/
Mini-Truck of the Year – Chad Louque – 2003 Toyota Tacoma “I needed a truck with more room,” Chad says about his dilemma regarding his truck’s simple lack of space. “To take care of that issue, I figured out the perfect way to keep my 20-year-old Toyota truck while still being able to pack up the entire family for a cruise.”
