Lifting the Gaylord’s tonneau cover exposes the truck fanatic’s Pandora box—tools, speaker
Opening the Gaylord’s tonneau reveals a bed full of the things every custom truck guy would love to see—tools, speakers, and a big TV. Mounted on a Bed Slide, Snap-On built a custom toolbox just for the truck. Directly behind the two-drawer toolbox, an articulating arm provides the sturdy mount for a 32-inch Sony TV. The Bed Slide also serves as the mounting point for a custom Katzkin leather-covered sub enclosure with two 10-nch Sony subs and two 6-inch components. Red leather-covered custom bedsides now house two large Sony Xplod amps powering all of the Sony audio. We can’t speak for the Snap-On race team, but for us, it sure would be tough to focus on grabbing the right wrench with all of that cool entertainment in the bed. Now that’s a great problem to have.
Inside the four-door cabin is a sea of red covering nearly every original part and panel from the Lariat package. A bit more luxurious now thanks to Ed Harr Upholstery, Katzkin leather seat covers were embroidered with the Snap-On logo both front and rear. Leather covers the headliner and most every panel has either been painted to match the interior or done in contrasting red to match the exterior. Mesh grille inserts were fit into the door panel pockets, adding a bit of raciness to the otherwise upscale appearance. Entertainment is provided by Sony Xplod with a DVD head unit in the dash, separates throughout, dual subwoofers, and amplifiers to match. The subwoofers were built into the center console with one facing up and one protruding into the rear passenger floor. It’s that subwoofer in particular to take note of. The brackets mounting it to the floor are Snap-On box wrenches, which carries over the tool theme from the outside, to the inside. As if that weren’t enough to keep passengers happy, Sony LCD screens were stuffed in the headrests for the rear seat crew to enjoy.
These American Force wheels are appropriately named Snap and are part of the company’s cat
