Brotherhood. It’s one of the strongest bonds known to mankind. Brothers share a connection, and when they get along and share similar interests the memories made can be countless and priceless. At the end of the day, it’s all about family.
The Reyna Bros. out of Georgetown, Texas is led by oldest brother and ringleader Milo Reyna. These brothers design and build custom trucks together as a family from Milo’s home shop. Brother Daniel Reyna (Daniel Reyna Designs) is an extremely accomplished artist, drafting all of the renderings to create the concept for each custom truck they build. Brothers Chris Reyna and Art Reyna help swing the wrenches, sand the metal, grind, weld and fabricate to turn these once-stock haulers into low-rolling, rim-tucking, head-turning pieces of art. The house
specialty on the Reyna family build menu is 1973-87 Chevrolet C-10 pickups all sitting low on air ride suspension, stuffing big billet wheels and coated in two-tone colors with all of the factory character GM installed on the assembly line.
They go by Reyna Bros. Designs, and the mission is to connect the family as they communicate and work together to fuel their collective passion and create memories doing what they all love to do, building these trucks. The family activity of building trucks was by design from Milo when he began customizing and showing lowriders at 15. Young Milo was bit by the customizing bug, and the younger trio of brothers couldn’t help but emulate their big brother’s example. Eventually all four of them were addicted to creating art from Bow Tie metal. It was also a way to keep everyone focused, sharp and away from any temptations that could lead to trouble. Their parents also get involved in the builds, lending their perspective on color choices and designs and admiring their sons’ work, looking on with pride at what their children were creating together.
This family truck building team doesn’t do it for the money or the glory of magazine covers and features (although they have several), but for the experience of learning from each other and sharing in the process of creating art on every surface of old Bow Tie iron.
Check out the stunning work by the Reyna Bros., and if you’ve been contemplating a custom truck build with your family, our advice is to go for it. The rewards are priceless, and we promise you’ll get hooked!

Raceline Wheel Design
Back in 2008, Daniel’s automotive rendering business was launched when his brother asked him to draw a rendering for a C-10 build to use when approaching sponsors.
Local rendering work for close friends followed and today Daniel does renderings for customers nationwide. Milo had developed a business relationship with Chuck Blayney from Raceline Wheels, and Chuck approached Daniel to design wheels. The ﬁrst wheel Daniel designed was the Static, and to date, he’s developed 22 styles for Raceline, including oﬀerings from the company’s regular Billet series, Outlaw series and the new Concave series.
Daniel admits that balancing his time among his teaching responsibilities, rendering business, wheel design and truck builds is tough, but he enjoys every minute of it.
