Some of the nation’s finest heavy-duty truck customizations show up every year on the floor of the Great American Trucking Show in Dallas. This year was no exception, with 52 trucks competing for bragging rights in Overdrive’s Pride & Polish.

Dallas-based freelance photographer Jason Kindig took hundreds of photos of these stunning trucks, including the five Best of Show winners, 11 whimsical, highly creative rat rods — technically not part of Pride & Polish, but which competed for a truckers’ favorite vote – and everything in between.

Below are some of the beauty shots of the five Best of Show winners taken in downtown Dallas by Kindig. By filling out the short form here with your name, email address and company name, you will gain access to more than 250 shots taken by Kindig at GATS of the Best of Show champions, winners from each category, all 52 entrants and the rat rods.

Overdrive‘s Pride & Polish is sponsored by Lincoln Chrome, Mac Trailers, PDI, ProMiles Software, Renegade Products and VP Racing Fuel.
