The body shop at Fairway Chevrolet also smoothed and painted all of the plastic on the Silverado, including the dash, center console, and door trim. For audio duties, a JL Audio Stealthbox sub enclosure was mounted inside the center console that was pirated from a Suburban. The box allows for 500 watts of power without taking up much space in the relatively small confines of the regular cab. JL audio separates were used in the doors, while the whole system was wired to an Eclipse AVN 5500 head unit. Dan turned to ABC upholstery in Las Vegas for the seats, where black Mercedes-Benz leather was used in tandem with black suede.
Moving to the engine, JBA headers unleashed a few of the horses that the factory manifolds held back, and a muffler shop bent up a custom exhaust from there. For another boost in power, 8.5mm JBA plug wires were also swapped in.
The result is a truck that runs as good as it looks.
Dan would like to thank his family for their support, since he tore into a relatively new truck only eight months after buying it. Several friends also helped with the build, including: Justin, Nathan, Darrell, Joe, and Kendra.
Dan flared the bedsides 2 inches on each side to fit the wide Foose DF-6 22-inch wheels.
The gauge face from US Speedo is a close match to the Silver Birch exterior.
