To show its activity-oriented customers just how cool those Equators can be, Suzuki worked recently with three leading truck and off-roading magazines to customize and modify the new pickup. Each truck can serve as inspiration to customize any pickup.

4-Wheel & Off-Road, which selected the Equator as its “4×4 of the Year,” focused on the vehicle’s extreme capacity with its Project Super Equator, with lifted suspension, beadlock wheels, custom front bumper and Warm winch.

Off-Road magazine’s Project Two Face was conceived to highlight versatility, showing how a single Equator can be a 4×4 rock crawler, or shifted into rear-wheel drive, a high-speed desert runner. The changes involve suspension, tires, lighting and a skid-plate style front bumper.

However, most intriguing for Suzuki motorcycle riders was the Project Street Shark from Truckin’. Inspired by the Suzuki GSX-R sport bike, which can be carried in the truck bed, the Street Shark featured a one-piece grille, freer-breathing MagnaFlow exhaust, Stillen brake rotors with powder-coated calipers, a bike-inspired paint scheme, AIM Industries’ custom lowering suspension kit and 265/35-aspect Nitto tires on 22-inch Giovanna wheels.
