A custom aluminum fuel cell was fabricated to fit the truncated chassis, and a custom exhaust system was fabricated leading from the 5.3L's Borla headers to a Flowmaster muffler and finally exiting high in the center of the tailgate after some intricate bends and a length of flexible tubing. We can't say we've ever seen an exhaust like it and it sure made onlookers stop and stare. The 5.3L engine itself is almost totally hidden by an engine cover that allows the cold-air intake and factory engine cover and fan shroud, both paint matched, to peek through.
Troy went far beyond the concept when it came to the interior of the Silverado. The stock bucket seats remain, but were reupholstered in perforated Mercedes-spec gray leather, with matching gray carpet. The rest of the interior was sprayed the same Sikkens Torch Red as the exterior. Arc Audio components were mounted in custom door panels and a fiberglass rear cab wall built by Dave Fonts. Six 12-inch subs offer up more than enough bass and receive audio signals not from a traditional head unit, but entirely from an iPod. A single 10-inch monitor was mounted in the smoothed and painted dash, just above the Arc Audio equalizer. Any true custom isn't finished without at least a few accents of polished aluminum, so vents, a shifter, and a B.A.D. steering wheel were added to accent the sea of red.
Troy would like to thank all of the guys at Anderson Bros. that helped him bring the concept to life, as well as Fred and DK at Arc Audio, Kelly Dickinson, and especially Troy's wife, Jodi for all of her support. Troy's goal was to build the most radical sport truck possible and we'd be hard-pressed to come up with a comparable example of customization. It's truly in a league of its own. So how about it guys, who's going to try to one-up the Anderson Bros.?
