Up in Flames

THIS ’16 DODGE DURANGO R/T BE­LONGS TO ONE ALEX MARTIN OUT OF OCEAN­SIDE, CAL­I­FOR­NIA, AND IT HAS SEEN ITS SHARE OF IM­PROVE­MENTS FROM THE IN­SIDE OUT. The stock 5.7L V-8 en­gine has been out­fit­ted with an AFE in­take to pull the most out of the Hemi. To main­tain a clean aes­thetic, bil­let caps and a painted en­gine cover highlight the com­part­ment and the beat­ing heart of the build. The sharp red, white and black color scheme con­tin­ues out­side of the hood and en­sures that ev­ery part of this build is a show-stop­per.

On the ex­te­rior, the bright white paint draws the eye to the build as much as the cus­tom hood flames from Parker Air­brush. Painted in neg­a­tive, this clas­sic touch sets the theme for the build, with tinted head­lights and tail­lights ac­cent­ing the hood. A cus­tom-made and mat­ted grille fronts the ride, while a Mag­naflow cat-back ex­haust peeks out the back, ty­ing the look to­gether. Keep­ing the Dodge sit­ting pretty is an Ac­cuair sus­pen­sion setup, com­plete with its new ENDOTANK sys­tem. The ’16 sits on 24x10 Tri­umph forged three­piece wheels wrapped in

Toyo Proxes 4s, em­pha­siz­ing the Durango’s min­i­mal­ist pal­ette. On the in­te­rior, SRT Jeep seats and steer­ing wheel, as well as a cus­tom-fit Chal­lenger SRT shifter, give the in­te­rior a clean, sporty look. The third-row seat has been pulled to house the cus­tom air sus­pen­sion setup.

With all in­stal­la­tions, de­sign con­cepts—in­clud­ing wheel de­sign—and fab­ri­ca­tion work done by Alex him­self, this sick Durango is an in­spi­ra­tion to any­one de­ter­mined to cre­ate a per­son­al­ized, cus­tom build.
