OUR TOP 19 BUILDS OF 2019 By KRISTINA AKA @Offroadpony
2019 was a year for the books for us! We built more vehicles than ever, wheeled more often, and left Canada countless times to help us gain more knowledge to help serve you better. Every year we reflect back on all our builds and talk about each one. So hold on, maybe you will get inspired, or maybe, you might see your very own build here.
(Also, this list is heavily biased because I picked them all…and the bigger the better is the motto I live by. If the rest of the team wants their own list, they can make their own list.)
- 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 for Applewood Chevrolet
This Chevy was picked because not only does it look fucking fantastic with its Fabtech Motorsports 6″ Lift with Stealth Shocks, Nitto Tire USA Ridge Grappler 35×12.50×22, Fuel Off-Road Contra 22×12 wheels with Red coating, MBRP Cat Back 409 stainless exhaust, Hypertech Speedometer calibrator, but the bearded man standing beside it also looks fantastic. I enjoy men with beards.
2. 2019 Ram 1500 Warlock for Forest City Dodge
Go big or go home is what Forest City Dodge thought with this beastly 2019 Ram 1500 Warlock. The Full Throttle Suspension 8” lift, Black Rhino Wheels Raze 20×12 -44offset, Mickey Thompson Performance Tires & Wheels MTZ 37×13.50×20, & Hypertech Speedometer Calibrator would look stunning pulling my horse trailer, or my Green JK to the trails.
3. 2019 Ford F350 for Kennedy Ford
If this Ford (built for Kennedy Ford) with its BDS Suspension 8″ 4 Link Coil Over Lift Kit, McGaughey’s Traction Bar Kit, Kelderman Manufacturing Front & Rear Bumpers, Rigid Industries – LED Lighting Lights, aFe POWER Diff Covers & Cold Air Intake, MBRP Exhaust, Fuel Offroad 22×12 Sledge, Nitto Tire USA Trail Grappler 38×13.50×22 pulled up in front of my house, I would have to rip the driver out of the seat and take it for a rip myself. I wouldn’t back seat drive on something this wonderful. Hold on to your panties ladies, it’s got an MBRP exhaust.
4. 2019 Ram 1500 for London City Chrysler
This 2019 Ram 1500 has Rough Country – 4″ Lift
Ultra Wheel Company – 20×10
MBRP – MBRP Exhaust 304 Stainless
Bushwacker – Pocket Style Flares/Colour Matched
Falken Tire – Wildpeak A/T3W 35×12.50×20
Westin Automotive Products – HDX Drop Steps
It looks awesome and is orange. Therefore, it is in my top 19. You can’t question this.
5. 2020 Jeep Gladiator for Fairview Chrysler
Even with only a small lift, new wheels and tires, the Gladiator is awesome. I want one.
6. 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 for Ernie Dean Chevrolet
The 2019 Chevy Silverado Silverado with its Fabtech Motorsports – 6″ Lift
KMC Wheels – XD820 20×9 Wheels
MBRP – Exhaust, is here to show you what 6” can really do for you.
7. 2019 Ram 1500 for London City Chrysler
The 2019 Ram 1500 with its ReadyLift Suspension Inc. – 3.5″ Lift
KMC Wheels – XD 137 Wheels 20×9
MBRP – MBRP Exhaust 304 Stainless
Hypertech – Speedometer Calibrator
General Tire Canada– X3 35/12.50/20
Westin Automotive Products – HDX Steps, really pops with its machined wheels against the black. Big fan here.
8. 2020 Jeep Gladiator
This 2020 Jeep Gladiator is glorious in all its 2’5” Combat Off Road lift, 37 x 12.5 x 17 Mickey Thompson Baja Boss tires, Black Rhino Wheel This is exactly what I want for my Gladiator. I’m hoping when Kurt trades this is, I get first dibs on it. Me and the dogs would look excellent in it.
9. 2019 Jeep Wrangler JLU
We bugged Chris for years to trade in his shit mobile for a jeep. Now look! Chris has finally entered the dark side, and his wife wasn’t too far behind (helllllo Bikini Pearl on her!) This Mojito is exactly what is needed in a JL, fun on the inside, super fun on the outside. I can’t wait to take them both out wheeling.
10. 2019 Jeep Wrangler JLU Rubicon
I’m super biased, because you have a few of my favourite things here. An orange 2020 Jeep JL done on a 2.5” AEV suspension lift, with AEV Savegre II wheels, & 37” Mickey Thompson MTZ tires. Its almost like I helped build this design on this jeep.
11. 2018 Jeep Wrangler JLU Rubicon
I’m still hurt that Kurt traded this 2020 Jeep JL in without consulting me first. It has a 2.5” Rough Country lift, Mickey Thompson Baja Boss tires 37 x 12.50 x17, and KMC Brute wheels. I wanted it. But seriously, I’m one person. How many vehicles do I need? (still, all of them). The new owner of this jeep got an amazing deal when he bought it.
12. 2016 Toyota Tundra
I don’t know anything about this Toyota but I love it. So hopefully I’ll remember to ask Aaron to get the specifics. (Note from Aaron: She did not ask. It’s a Toyota Tundra with Old Man Emu BP51 front coilovers and rear reservoir shocks, Old Man Emu Dakar Leaf Springs, Method Race Wheels NV305 wheels and 285/75/18 Goodyear Duratrac tires. Back to Kristina now.) I’m loving this ORANGE truck, and bronze wheels. If you know me, then you know I’m super partial to bronze wheels.
13. 2019 New Body Style Ram 2500
This 2019 New Body Style Ram 2500 is gorgeous!! Fabtech Motorsports 5” lift, KMC Wheels XD842 Snare 20×9 Wheel, Nitto Tire USA Ridge Grappler 37.13.50×20, Westin Automotive Products R7 side steps, Hypertech Speedometer Calibrator. Going into that 37 from a 35 (if your lift and clearance allows it) shows you what an extra 2” can do for you. Badass.
14. 2019 Ford F150
This 2019 Ford F150 Platinum has a Rough Country 6” lift kit, KMC Wheels XD 839 Clamp 20×9, Nitto Tire USA Terra Grappler G2 35×12.50×20, Bushwacker Pocket style flares, and a Hypertech Speedometer calibrator. It looks way bigger in person. Don’t you like when that happens?
15. 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 for Applewood Chevrolet
Did I post this sweet Chevy Silverado 2500 again? (Note from Aaron: No. No, you did not. It’s a 2019 Chevy Silverado 2500 that was built for Applewood Chevrolet. It has a Fabtech 6″ Lift, Bilstein Steering Stabilizer, Nitto Ridge Grapplers 37×13.50×22, KMC Hoss 2 22×10 wheels, MBRP DPF Back exhaust and a Hypertech Speedo-Cal).
16. 2019 Jeep Wrangler JLU Rubicon
This sweet 2020 Jeep JL Bikini Pearl belongs by the water. No photo will ever do this colour justice. It’s just so glorious. The Fuel Hardline wheels and Mickey Thompson ATZs look perfect with it. Also, the owner brought us fish & chips from her restaurant and halted builds for an hour, 12/10 worth the delay in the day. You should actually go to eat there. It’s the Mill Tales Inn in Tillsonburg, ON – Lauralee and her team are amazing.
17. 2019 Ram 1500
The 2019 Ram 1500 looks awesome with its Rough Country 6” lift , KMC Wheels XD Clamp 20×9 wheels, Nitto Tire USA Terra Grappler G2 35×12.50×20 , Hypertech Speedometer calibrator and MBRP 304 stainless dual rear exhaust. What a snazzy build.
18. 2016 Chevrolet Silverado
This Chevy Silverado 1500 came to us all the way from Sherbrooke, Quebec to have us install their 4” BDS lift with Fox shocks. But all I see is a man with a beard standing beside a wickedly cool truck now.
19. 2012 Jeep JKU
So this wasn’t built in 2019. BUT. I did break it enough, it almost could be considered a new build. Ryan was in this photo, and I like looking at him, so he made the list with the lovely green machine.
So there you have it. A heavily biased list made by me. Next year, I would love to see women posing with their trucks and Jeeps that we have built. I will also still be accepting men standing beside their Jeeps and trucks. And dogs, also horses, maybe a llama. If you bring a llama to pose beside your newly built vehicle we did, I will give you an Off Road Addiction shirt, and I also require a photo with the llama.
