WTF Friday: Custom Extremities


I’m pretty lucky to be made aware of a lot of interesting builds via Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram and today’s truck was brought to my attention by long time reader Clint Jolly Green (who has a real last name that’s hard to spell).

My initial reaction to being tagged in the photo below was ‘holy Kansas look at those doors’ followed by quite the eyebrow raise when I noticed the rear wheel/tire situation.

It’s probably safe to assume all of your reactions will be about the same:


Once someone tagged the builder (Able Tadour of Custom Extremities) finding more pictures of the truck wasn’t exactly too hard as he’s a pretty active member of Minitruck community and the truck was seen repeatedly at the Heritage show in Whitesburg, Ky.

I wasn’t able to find anything more about the interesting wheel/tire set-up above but one can only assume it was just used for test fitting… something?

Both the doors and front end are focal points of this build and appear to be done pretty damn well
The roof gaps look pretty much perfect
A Vortec 4.3 pops out of the hood
Without a shadow of a doubt one of the most interesting notches I have ever seen
The piece sticking out of the cab matches the center console on the inside
The dash is also fittingly one of a kind
Before the grill and lights were made the truck was shown with this kind of phantom grill set-up
That was then switched to this
Here the truck really reminds me of a 70’s show rod re imagined
Not sure which paint job came first but I think I prefer this look

I was also able to find a few of the owners other builds on It looks like everything he does is low and unique in one way or another.
