This lowered truck hides a custom interior and over $70k in upgrades.

Even if you're not a fan of lowered vehicles, there is just something inherently cool about seeing a slammed compact truck, and this custom Chevy S-10 is a great example. This truck started life as a 2001 Chevrolet S-10 Xtreme, which was an appearance package that added an aggressive body kit and offset wheels from the factory. But that wasn't enough for this owner, who took the modifications to the next level!

If this is S-10 is pulling at your heartstrings, it will be up for grabs at the Saratoga Auto Auction next month.

As any respectable lowrider should have, the paint and body work on this S-10 looks amazing. You can see in the pictures how much care went into laying down the high-quality paint, and the big six-spoke wheels and ram air hood add a sporty look to this truck. The hard tonneau cover hides a carpeted bed and the lowrider's air tanks and actuators and subtle pinstriping adds a custom touch, but the coolest part of this truck's design are the Toyota Supra taillights that have been frenched into the rear valance.

Inside, this S-10 has been almost fully customized retaining just the factory dash and door panels. Everything else is custom including the steering wheel, center console and bucket seats, but the highlight of this truck is what you find behind the front seats. Instead of the rear seats that are usually found in the extended cab S-10, this truck has a custom housing (painted to match the exterior color) for the competition-grade audio equipment.

What hasn't been modified is the truck's original powertrain consisting of GM's venerable 4.3-liter V-6 with a four-speed automatic transmission. The engine compartment was spruced up with some custom painted accents, but other than that, the drivetrain is bone stock. And that's a good thing since this truck only has around 46,000 miles on the odometer.

In total, the seller is claiming there is over $70,000 invested in vehicle upgrades (including $4,000 in wheels and tires alone), and the condition and quality of this truck definitely backs that up.
