Lifting the hood of Kurt's '07 reveals the best-looking and most detailed engine compartment we've seen on a late-model truck. Sitting atop the 4.8L V-8 is a polished MagnaCharger supercharger. Complementing the polished huffer are custom-made reservoir tanks for the coolant, supercharger overflow tank, and master cylinder. Machined and polished pulleys for a Ford Lightning engine made their way onto the Bow Tie and other details such as polishing the 200-amp alternator, throttle-body, polishing the belt tensioner, adding polished coil covers, and he also powdercoated the engine brackets throughout. Keeping the polished and painted goodies really standing out, Kurt painted the engine bay flat black. Helping the 4.8L scream even more, a camshaft for an LS2 was slipped in, a Volant intake and snorkel were bolted on, Dynatech SuperMaxx long-tube headers and high-flow cats installed, and a Volant exhaust system added to the mix. In case that isn't enough for Kurt's commute, a 100-shot of Nitrous Express should elevate his heartbeat. Without question, the engine compartment is a true testament to taking one's time and paying close attention to the details.
Inside the Crew Cab, Kurt didn't want to go over the top but he did want a custom interior that could keep up with any other area of the truck. Classic Soft Trim was called upon to cover the seats with grey leather, but Kurt wanted rear bucket seats. After he tracked down a righthand rear seat, he had the foam reshaped and the seat rebuilt to be a mirror image of the factory 60/40-split seat. Painting the dash was handled at Grimeez Custom Paint and several other plastic pieces were smoothed and painted to tie it all together. Stylin' Trucks was called for a billet dress-up kit including new knobs, shifter handle, grab handle, and heater box cover. Kurt also added a Cadillac gauge cluster that was stripped down and painted flat blue, just to be different. Desiring a comfortable yet stylish center console, Kurt built a factory-looking console that houses two cup holders, a 7-inch monitor, equalizer, and is topped off with a cut-down Arc Audio amp that tricks everyone who sees it. Speaking of audio, Dustin, from D.G. Audio, in Clovis, built a rear fiberglass sub enclosure housing four 8-inch Arc Audio subs and two Arc Audio Foose-edition amps. Arc Audio speakers were also installed in each door and in the A-pillars. Kenwood DVD and navigation handle the head unit chores while a 7-inch Kenwood monitor was mounted in the rear of the center console for passenger entertainment. Craig Renn then added the ostrich leather seat inserts and door panel trim, as well as a custom headliner. Kurt then focused on what he does best, paint and body.
