This 1949 Chevy pickup is the personal vehicle of Jeremy Rice, the owner of Tre 5 Customs, a two-person shop in Peoria, Arizona.

The pickup body sits on a modified S10 chassis using an Advanced-Design Engineering conversion kit. It was outfitted with Ridetech Strong Arms, a Tru Turn system and coil-overs up front. The rear features a parallel four-link with a panhard bar to keep the axle centered. It also rides on Ridetech coil-overs, and a set of 13-inch rotors from Mcgaughys Suspension provide the braking.

The truck rolls on 20x8.5 and 20x10 Intro Designs "Flow" wheels wrapped in Toyo Proxes STII tires.

The LS1 engine uses Professional Products and Summit Racing components and is mated to a 4L60E transmission and a Chevy 12-bolt axle. The VHX direct fit gauges from Dakota Digital keep track of the engine and transmission vitals.

The exterior features LMC Truck replacement panels and Metalux paint applied by I Kandy Paintworks. and the interior carries a Rockford Fosgate audio system, a Vintage Air A/C setup and all the completely new upholstery.
