If you have had custom work done to your truck, Jeep or racecar at Off-Road Evolution, then Nate Chisholm has probably worked on your rig. On top of building vehicles for guys like us, Nate also built himself a pretty badass '04 Chevy Silverado prerunner. For most of us, this truck is already done up enough to have plenty of fun. Nate tells us that he has a slew of future plans to make this Chevy faster, stronger and tougher than ever. Round one is already something most of us would love to have parked in our driveway; we can't wait to see where round two leads him.
