Despite the intricate exterior, Austin left the interior very functional and enjoyable. Two-tone leather and suede seat covers from Katzkin take care of the seating surfaces, while suede wraps the headliner and visors. Gone are the fake wood accents, which have been painted black, and the only other mods to the dash include the installation of a JVC navigation head unit, H&S tuner, and the Accuair air-ride controller. Any seat is the best seat in the house thanks to three JL Audio amps powering two JL Audio 13.5-inch subs mounted behind the rear seat, along with a quartet of Hertz 6.5-inch components in each door providing the mids and highs. Rear passengers can watch video courtesy of Myron and Davis front headrests.
Straight from the factory, the new 6.7L is no slouch with 400 hp and 800 lb-ft of torque. But much like the wheels, suspension, and audio, Austin wasn't satisfied with factory hardware. In went a new H&S Performance Black Maxx tuner, along with an aFe intake, and 5-inch exhaust from FloPro. Helping the 40-inch tires get going stoplight-to-stoplight, 4.88 gears were installed front and rear.
It can't be emphasized enough how meticulous the Extreme crew was when completing their latest showpiece. Driven on a regular basis, Austin tells us, "The truck rides great with the big lift, and best of all, people always quickly get out of my way." We don't blame them, after all, what better thing to do when seeing the four horsemen coming after you.
