Custom Hunting Trucks  - Top Drives

Aluminum Top Drive  

This is an “All Aluminum” Top Drive. This is a Nilgai Rig. This truck is specifically designed for hunting Nilgai on the go. It has two front Varmint style swivel chairs for accurate shooting on the go. It also has 2 rear buckets and a Center driving station that is a full hydraulic, drive by wire set up. This one has a rear game ramp and winch seat up for easy loading those heavy animals. Very Nice Rig.


<-----South Texas Top Drive Hunting Truck #1:

This is our best top drive set up using a fully enclosed column.  This includes a tilt wheel steering, hydraulic brakes, floor mounted electronic accelerator pedal, hand throttle, and a column mounted transmission shifter.  We offer hydraulic steering or shaft steering and this steering column will accept either system.  Our top drive systems are user friendly like an automobile should be.


South Texas Outfitted Top Drive Hunting Truck #2----->

This is our regular top drive steering column set up.  This has the smaller steering column, non-tilt steering, floor mounted transmission shifter, hydraulic brakes, electronic floor mounted accelerator pedal and a had throttle.  We also offer this column with hydraulic or shaft steering.  This top drive system operates just as good as the full column system but without tilt wheel steering.


<-----South Texas Top Drive Hunting Truck #3:

This is our quail rig to drive full tilt design.  This is used on open top style rigs.




South Texas Outfitted Top Drive Hunting Truck #4:--->

This is our full across column assembly, this is used when a low top drive is needed.



<-----South Texas Top Drive Hunting Truck #5:

This shows our hand throttle design to ease your top drive hunting truck driving experience.  All our deer and quail hunting rigs, custom features, are built for durability, light weight, functionality, and years of quality service.  Get yours and find out why south Texas outfitters and individual hunters choose Performance Top Drives.



South Texas Top Drive Hunting Truck #6 ----->

This is our quick disconnect for the lower steering wheel when a shaft steering system is used.  It takes about 20 seconds to remove this shaft by simply pushing 2 release buttons and driving away.  We also use fully hydraulic steering systems which do not use a steering shaft at all.  In a fully hydraulic steering system, the driver just needs to start the truck from in the cab, or up in the rack, and simply drive off.  Our systems are very user friendly.

South Texas Top Drive Hunting Truck #7:

This shows the way that we construct a removable hunting top drive.  All our hoses and cables are built with quick disconnects.  All you need is a hoist to lift the hunt ring truck top rack off and you are ready to drive your custom quail and deer hunting truck the rest of the season.  This is just one of our many quality features.  

This is a typical hydraulic setup, the sharilyn valve is placed outside the racks to keep the noise level down.



South Texas Top Drive Hunting Truck #8

This used to be a Chevy Dually but we converted it to a single wheel and installed a 14” suspension lift with 42” Tires. This is a full top drive unit that seats 12 people. This truck has it all, including a slide out bar in the back seat and a bar in the top drive area. We used the factory bed and just cut it down to be more convenient and different. Check the trash can shoot system out in the tool box on the front part of the bed. We thought of it all. My head hurt after designing this one.


<-----Top Drive Custom Hunting Truck # 9:

 This shows our 7 passenger top drive hunting rack. Notice our outside cage option on both sides of this top rack and our large front windshield in order to see the front of the custom hunting truck while driving. The little things that we do here at Performance Top Drives, like this windshield on this unit is what makes us the Leaders in Top Drives.


South Texas Top Drive Hunting Truck#10----->

“THE PERFECT RIG” This is a Hummer H1 Pick Up style truck with our 11 Passenger Top Drive set up, roof and front quail seats. This unit is loaded with special options and is Built so the Complete top drive unit can be removed and stored in the Summer months so the Hummer can be used for other activities. We install lift kits and tires to transform vehicles to your specifications.


South Texas Top Drive Hunting Truck #11:

Check out this Tundra, it’s a really nice hunting truck.  It’s loaded with options:  Plenty of LED light bars to light up the night, racks for extra fuel containers (when you are WAY back on the ranch), game winch, hydraulic roof, and front feeder to name a few.  Notice the clear plastic canvas on the front top and corners of the rack.  Makes visibility way better when getting around the tight corners.  

South Texas Top Drive Hunting Truck #12----->

Here is an example of a Suburban top drive, with a quail rack on front, and a game basket on the rear.  Some of the features include: Full hydraulic steering, LED light bars front and rear, bench and bucket seating, and a Yeti cooler off the back of the rack to keep all your beverages nice and cold.   

South Texas Top Drive Hunting Truck #13:

Here we have an example of a unique rig.  This truck was stretched 6 feet!!! All aluminum construction with a custom paint job.  Customer wanted a high rack that wasn’t as high as the usual over the cab rigs.  This truck has more features than I can list, some of which include: multi Speaker stereo system inside and outside the rack, red and clear LED light bars, plenty of cabinets under the rack for guns and supplies. It also has a pullout bar, and multiple pull out trays for all your hunting supplies.  It is also equipped with a feeder and a water tank off the back.  A very very nice rig.


South Texas Top Drive Hunting Truck#14----->

Multiple examples of top drive rigs: Different options, configurations, base vehicles, colors, and features.  Check out the logos on some of the rigs.  



This is our multi-piece removable top; 1 person can remove and install it in about 10 minutes with no tools needed.

Pictured here is our solid mounted one-piece roof, it can be unbolted and removed with a hoist
Here we have our hydraulic roof; it is completely adjustable using a switch.  The roof will  go up high enough to be able to stand under, and when it is in the down position the rack is completely closed off.  Screens and clear plastic canvas can be added as an option.

<-----South Texas Custom Hunting Truck  # 17:

This is a top view of our 8 passenger top drive with a rear entry ladder.  Corporate deer hunting, quail hunting rigs and custom hunting trucks are built one at a time here at shop.  We use the finest material available and paint or use spray in bed liner to coat all new materials.


South Texas Top Drive Hunting Truck#18 (above)

Both of these pictures is of the same length rack but one is with a “center rear entry” ladder with 8 individual chairs and the other is a “side rear entry” ladder with 6 individual chairs and a single rear 2 person seat ice chest seat combo. Notice the “center rear entry” ladder rack is wider to better accommodate the double rear ice chest seats and also notice the difference of the width between the bucket seats. What ever style of seating arrangements you need, we can produce. We are very aware of utilizing all available space wisely.


South Texas Top Drive Hunting Truck #19: (above)

This is a Chevy 2500 HD 4x4. This is built “Old School Look” with the squared corners and open flat bed. This does however have our modern Top Drive Controls set up. We build trucks as “YOU” want it done.
