Despite the camouflage look, you wont be sneaking around in this 2012 Chevy Silverado 4x4 Z71. Ridiculously over-built to handle the rigors of off-road fun, its the ultimate sportsmans retreat vehicle, capable of taking you anywhere, anytime, in extreme comfort.
This started out as your average Silverado, painted refrigerator white and pretty ordinary. Then the transformation began, starting with Game Guard Texas Cactus wrap that gives it that distinctive camo look. A Jason Top hard shell tonneau cover got the same treatment to help it blend in, and youll note that they really went the extra mile, hitting the mirrors and roof, so you know this wasnt some do-it-yourself project. Road Armor supplied both the front and rear bumpers, both of which were painted flat camo green, along with the factory Z71 fender flares and lower rocker cladding. That front bumper includes a set of four LED Rigid fog lights and three Pro Comp LED driving lights that light up the wilderness like a football stadium, and theres a matching pair of LED lights in the rear bumper for backing up. The bed was lined with a spray-in bedliner, so its ready to handle anything youd care to haul home without worries.
The luxurious Silverado interior is among the industrys best, and even it received a full makeover thats fully in character with the rest of the truck. The factory buckets have camouflage inserts on the seating surfaces and plastic parts like the dash inserts, door panel control surfaces, and even the steering wheel spokes were treated to a dip in the camouflage paint vat. Of course, being a Silverado, its loaded with options and really is a no-compromises luxury vehicle in every way. A/C, power windows and locks, cruise control, a leather wrapped steering wheel, and a thundering stereo with iPod interface are all part of the deal. The center console is handy with plenty of storage for all your little gear, and with the full-sized back seat, theres room for five fully-geared guys inside. Heavy-duty rubber floor mats protect the carpets, so even if your feet are dirty from the great outdoors, there are no worries.
Youll be able to go anywhere with ease thanks to Chevys top gas motor, the 6.0-liter V8. Its stock, but with 360 horsepower and 380 pounds of torque, theres really no need for modifications. It starts instantly, idles smoothly, and youll never think twice about turning the key and heading off into the great unknown, confident that youll get home safely. Its backed by the award-winning Allison 6-speed automatic transmission, a heavy-duty gearbox that doesnt mind playing rough, and the transfer case has an automatic setting as well as low ranges for truly rough going. The suspension has obviously been upgraded using a Pro Comp six-inch lift with a matching 6-inch crossmember/knuckle lift kit and fortified with ES9000 shock absorbers. That means the geometry stays right, it rides and handles like a standard truck, and itll climb over boulders the size of beach balls without blinking. Honestly, given how clean the undercarriage is, its unlikely that the trucks limits have been tested in the rough, although the massive 295/65/20 Nitto Trail Grappler tires on color-matched MB wheels are up for the job.
No, this butch Silverado isnt for everyone. But if youre an extrovert who likes to head into the woods, its a very impressively built machine that doesnt compromise on anything. Call today!
