Wow man, you're stand up in my book.
So what else is happening with the truck beside wheels? I really love the way the fenders look on there... Looks like a hot rod.
Are you going all black? Or keeping a lot of the chrome??
Thanks man. To sum up what we're doing to this truck I would probably just say "everything."
I haven't released the renderings just yet, but here is some of the stuff we have in the works:
-Custom lower valance/air splitter
-Custom size exhaust with a hybrid side skirt/step
-Roll Pan in the rear
-Modified Street Scene Big Boy rear flares (08-10 style, but modified)
-Custom tonneau cover
-Dechrome of the whole truck. All brightwork will either be painted body color,
accent color, or made satin
-24" wheels, powdercoated to match the color scheme of the truck
-Nitrous Express Nitrous kit and Snow Performance Water/Meth
-16" Wilwood brakes with brackets by TCE
-Custom reupholstered interior including seats, pillars, headliner, console, and armrests
-Complete Rockford Fosgate soundsystem
-Fully custom bed, purpose built to service a racecar/track toy (details coming on that soon)
And a bunch more. Simply put: it's a SEMA Show truck. But we're building this one with purpose in mind and not just making it look flashy. The finished truck should look and run like a locomotive. It won't be everyone's cup of tea, but I'm building it to show that diesels can be considered modern hot rods. The horsepower grudge match between GM and Ford is a prime example I think and not to mention these trucks are just awesome.
