This trucker owner took a step too far to modify a truck which is also a trike, or three-wheeled bike. It isn’t only eye-catching but also an incredibly useless truck trike.

This truck was converted as a food truck and although it might attract customers and be good for business, it definitely isn’t good for driving around. The too much metal on it definitely adds a lot of weight.

The owners of these trucks must be comic fanatics! One is definitely inspired by some darker side, while the other by Superman, The Hulk, and lots of Batman villains. They definitely need that superheroes’ force as they’re set for racing.

This monster truck was quite popular in the 1990s, but its fame didn’t last. However, Hummer owners didn’t give up on their vehicle. One such example is this Hummer with a gold custom paint job.

Did you know what dekotora trucks aren’t the only extravagantly decorated trucks in Japan? Many truck owners also opt for bosozuku, a Japanese youth subculture. Even though this term is mostly associated with street racing cars, nothing stopped this truck owner from implementing it on his truck.

4. Japanese Films-Inspired Truck

Another truck which comes from Japan is this truck which was inspired by a series of Japanese films called Truck Guys. The owner definitely spent tons of money on chrome, custom paint, and neon lights.

3. KB Ditch Digger Truck

The KB Ditch Digger Truck was a hit on the SEMA show in 2015. Such a retro style is quite rare to see on truck mods. We only hope that this vintage vehicle goes as good on the road as it looks.

2. Off-Road Green-Eyed Monster

This off-road truck is perfect for the roughest terrain, but its colour definitely isn’t. The off-road green-eyed monster comes with neon green paint job which couldn’t be more noxious.

Just as colourful as the traffic jams are in India, this truck isn’t only rich in colour, but also in religious symbols. The symbols feature many vibrant and striking imagesof the Hindu and Sikh religions. This truck is a great example of what to expect on the roads in colourful India.
