The heart of a soldier is always the determining factor for success and inside these shaved doors lies an interior fit for a king. Brown distressed leather covers the seats and door panels, whereas the headliner is grey suede. Street Effectz also handled the interior. While they were working, a custom fiberglass and wood center console was made, billet accessories including the steering wheel added, and several pieces of the dash were smoothed and painted. Other tricks included building a housing for the Stewart Warner gauges, LED lighting throughout the cab, and a 15-inch flip-down monitor to watch the latest battles were also performed. In the bed, a trick fiberglass box seems to be floating above the Valley Oak wood flooring. Housed in the console are two Memphis Audio 12-inch subs powered by multiple Memphis amps also mounted in the bed, only behind LED-lit Plexiglass. Juice is supplied by two Kinetik batteries and four Stinger distribution blocks.
A soldier would be remiss to ignore physical fitness and this truck is plenty athletic thanks to the supercharged 5.4L V-8 equipped with a Spectra 6-inch intake, K&N intake elbow, JDM supercharger spacer, and Diablo tuner in addition to the RynoTune custom software. The rumble is courtesy of Flowmaster and L&S Automotive supplied the oil separator. Keeping the appearance rugged is an airbagged suspension built by Afflicted Concepts. While in their tutelage, Afflicted installed Slam Specialties RE6 'bags, adjustable shocks front and rear, and modified spindles. Out back, a two-link with Watts link brings the frame onto the ground. Twenty-four-inch Centerline Hollywood wheels received black powdercoating and 285/30R24 Toyo Proxes tires. It took determination and the heart of a champion to stay focused long enough to complete his dream. Chris is quick to thank his wife Lynn for her slp of Ron and Dave Lewert, Mike Horst, and Robbie and Bryan at KEG Media.
