Once the kit was prototyped, it was sent over to Extreme Trucks in Irvine, California, for final fitment. Up front, billet aluminum Dirt Logic 2.0 coilovers were installed on newly powdercoated, color-matching red bracketry. Out back, another set of Dirt Logic 2.0 billet shock absorbers were installed, as well as the lift blocks. A set of Firestone Ride-Rite airbags and a compressor were also installed to help with the weight distribution-once the boat was installed to the backend of the truck. While there, the truck was also upgraded with 4.10:1 Precision Gears. The front and rear differential covers were replaced with larger capacity Mag-HyTec pieces, which add an additional quart of fluid to aid in cooling the gears. In addition, Extreme Trucks also replaced the factory exhaust system with a GM partner, Corsa Exhaust, using its brand-new stainless steel back-cat system. Before installing the new KMC Hoss wheels, the truck was sent over to Custom Truck Shop in San Dimas, California, for a complete system overhaul of the factory brakes.
Out went the factory front disc and rear drum brakes and in went the new Baer Racing AlumaSport system, consisting of 14-inch EradiSpeed directional rotors up front-and their complete rear disc brake upgrade-over the stock factory drum braking system. Planted under all four corners are KMC Hoss 20x9.5-inch wheels, which were dressed in Nitto Terra Grappler LT35x12.50R20 tires. However, before mounting and balancing the wheels and tires, the wheels were sent out for powdercoating in the same silver color as the trucks' pinstripe lines. The bead locks were also powdercoated for both the truck and the Extreme boat trailer. As another must for any lifted truck, to ease ingress and egress, the Silverado was fitted with a set of retractable AMP Research running boards that tuck up and away when not in use. Aesthetically, when the doors are closed, the boards are undetectable.
With the suspension and small performance aspects covered, it was time to deliver the Silverado to the paint specialists at L&G Enterprises in San Dimas, California, where lead artist Theresa Contreras took over and worked her magic to the topside of the Chevrolet's stock, black sheetmetal. Fit to the truck were SSE's entire catalog of newly created polyurethane components, including windshield wiper cowl, bumper cover, Speed Grille lower front bumper valance, and Speed Grille shell fit with silver-matching inserts.
