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.
