Here's something you just don't see everyday…..which is really too bad because this truck looks great! Subtle modifications to the interior and exterior, and those awesome Alcoa wheels make this truck stand out from the rest. Owned by a car enthusiast and owner of multiple show cars and trucks, this truck has been cared for with attention to detail.
Finished in Dark Blue Metallic, this long box, dually fender-ed truck's exterior features a few modifications other than those big Alcoa wheels. The modifications are done tastefully and blend right in with the trucks styling until you look closer. A complete, professional refinish of the factory dark metallic blue paint was performed using a basecoat/clearcoat. The aforementioned dually fenders are 3” wider per side than a stock GM dually fender, making it easier to tuck the dually wheels. A custom bed cover is painted in a matching Dark Blue Metallic, and sits just over the lip of the smoothed tailgate. Below the tailgate is a custom painted bumper, which has a 'Hidden Hitch' notched through behind the license plate recess. Other exterior highlights are: Cowl hood, Billet Grille, smoked/LED cab lights, LED front and rear lights, and new weather strips/seals. And the icing on the cake - the wheels. The wheels are genuine Alcoa wheels that were originally 22.5”, but were milled down to a 22” diameter to accept 'street' tires rather than semi-truck tires.
Inside the truck is a clean well kept interior that features a few modifications. Let's start from the top: a suede headliner finished in dark gray, metal trim around gauge cluster, aluminum shift lever, aluminum trimmed pedals, custom steering wheel, and upgraded Pioneer stereo. Tinted windows, Air Conditioning, and plush seats are a bonus in keeping occupants comfortable while cruising in this big bad truck.
Under the hood is a 5.7L Vortec V8 mated to a 4L80 transmission with overdrive, and 4:10 posi-traction rear axle. K&N filter, Optima battery, and matching valve covers are highlights found in this very tidy engine bay. The underside of the truck shows very well with a very clean frame, and floor pans. Headers and custom exhaust give this truck a nice growl, and Transmission cooler helps to keep this truck's transmission at the optimum operating temperature. The front spindles have been dropped, and air suspension has made its way onto the rear of the truck to help aid in towing ride height.
We predict that this truck won't be with us for long, you could not duplicate this truck for near our asking price. (It's always the good looking ones that don't stick around long….) Subtle and tasteful styling changes make this truck really stand out from the others, and Alcoa wheels are an awesome finishing touch on this big blue cruiser.
