82 THE SHOP NOVEMBER 2019 2019 FORD RANGER Father and son designers Neil and Collin Tjin are at it again. This year they are debuting a 2019 Ford Ranger in the Ford booth #22200 at the 2019 SEMA Show to follow-up on their Purple RTR Ford Mustang that debuted last year. The Tjin boys said they wanted to "change the game" in the Ranger world, since a majority—if not all—of the Rangers at SEMA last year were lifted. Tjin Edition is known for outfitting its builds with Air Lift Co. performance suspension and teamed up with JR's Wheels and Tires to slam this Ranger to the ground—7 inches in front and 9 inches in the rear. The Ranger will also feature a custom BASF yellow paint job done by the team at LR Auto Body, and RTR fender flares, skid plate and front grille with LED lighting. Other exterior mods including Rigid Industries fog lights and a custom wood bed done by Denny Huang at DAYUUM! Garage. Custom Rotiform wheels, Baer brakes and Falken tires will finish off the stance, while the interior will be updated with four reclining RECARO seats, a Schroth Racing harness and a custom KICKER audio system. Participants include RPG Offroad (control arms, front mount intercooler), OPTIMA Batteries (battery), Power Tank (air system) and Ford Performance. 2018 DODGE CHALLENGER Cole Quintin from Quintin Brothers Auto and Performance in Vermont forwards information on a supercharged 2018 Dodge Challenger build. See it in the ProCharger booth #23261 at the 2019 SEMA Show. Upgrades include a custom JL Audio stereo system, Baer four-wheel disc brakes, Forgeline three-piece wheels, Anderson Composites carbon fiber widebody and exterior mods, custom graphics, ORACLE Lighting, custom interior mods and more. 1953 BUICK Steele Rubber Products is excited to be partnered with Chris Carlson Hot Rods on its latest build (and adventure!), a 1953 Buick two-door convertible named Jolene. It will be a featured vehicle at the 2019 SEMA Show, and the CCHR crew plans to drive it 1,186 miles from the shop in Mulvane, Kansas to Las Vegas. Jolene features a 401 Buick Nailhead backed with a 700R transmission, air ride with AccuAir Suspension E-Leveling, RideTech shocks, Heidts front suspension, Vintage Air, Magnaflow stainless exhaust wrapped in DEI header wrap, Boom Mat insulation, Dakota Digital gauges and cruise control, American Autowire products, Rocket Racing Wheels, Diamond Back Classic Tires, PPG custom-mixed paint, IDIDIT steering, a combination of brushed and polished nickel bright work by Ogden Chrome, '54 Chevy taillights, some mild shaving of emblems and other custom touches, along with a complete custom interior. All of the features will, of course, be protected and cushioned with a full set of Steele Rubber Products weatherstripping and seals.
