Inside the four doors, Brian didn't tap out and throw in the towel, but rather he stepped up his customizing game to a whole new level. Getting together the necessary wood and fiberglass components, Brian built a center console to house a JL Audio 8w7 sub. Knowing what color he wanted the interior to have, the dash, pillars, and the freshly-created console all received House of Kolor True Blue. Under the rear passenger seat, a JL Audio 12-inch sub found its way mounted and bumpin' bass from a JL Audio 250x1 amp. Each door houses a multitude of JL Audio mid components powered by a JL 300x4 amp. An Eclipse AVN-6620 double-din controls the sources while an Eclipse 30-band equalizer fine-tunes the audio signal. A matching B.A.D. Havoc billet steering wheel was bolted on, but not before billet A/C vents, billet knobs and switches, and an AVS digital gauge setup was also put into place. Gene Payne stepped in and stitched in the snakeskin seat inserts, door panel inserts, and wrapped the headliner in suede. Seven-inch monitors were placed into each sunvisor and then each eye-protector was wrapped in matching suede. The last remaining pieces of the interior puzzle were the solid billet air freshener hanging from the factory mirror and a large B.A.D. billet skull placed atop the center console.
Looking to further enhance his ride, Brian popped the hood and began work on the stock 5.3L V-8. Already strong from the factory, Brian added some ponies with the installation of a Spectre air filter, Accel 10mm plug wires, and Flowmaster exhaust. Worth noting, the exhaust runs the length of the frame and was wrapped in 1,200-degree header wrap. The end result? A truck that passed the local emissions test with flying colors. Other modifications under the hood included: custom-rolled inner fenders, a painted Escalade engine cover, blue powdercoated 250-amp DB alternator, and an engine-driven air compressor for the 'bags. Now going for a cruise doesn't mean worrying about getting home safely.
