Custom 2002 Chevrolet Silverado - Forked Tongue
Devil In A Blue Dress
It's been said that the devil isn't a hideous creature that will scare you away, but a temptation that will draw you near. Without a doubt, addiction is one of the sicknesses that could be labeled as evil. If that addiction is custom trucks, it most certainly could turn devilish. Just ask Eric Dunaway of Tacoma, Washington, how the devil himself convinced him to overspend on his custom build. When asked how much he spent on the truck, Eric replied, "nearly $50,000 over what I planed to spend." Let's face it, about the only thing a truck lover cracks his wallet that deep for are trucks or chicks. Eric has a girl, so the devil in the blue dress is definitely his '02 Chevy Silverado.
It's also been said that you get what you pay for. Well that's true, too, because this smooth machine is of fine quality. With 26-inch rims in mind, IF customs cut, welded, and fabricated the 1/2-ton to fit over the frame and huge rolling stock. This included recessing the front A-arms into the frame to accommodate the 10-1/2-inch-wide rim. IF Customs gave the Chevy a fresh shave, built the taillights into the tailgate, and sent it to Advanced Auto Design to have all the glasswork done for the interior. There, the inside door panels were shaped to accept all the speakers and monitors the Devil was to sport. The crew also fabbed the bed to hold a massive sub' box and amp mounting system to power up all the speakers.
Rich Thayer finished off all the detail work to make the interior and exterior flow together and give him a canvas to lay down the pigment. A combination of House of Kolor's True Blue and Cobalt Blue created the vibrant blue that sits on a silver base. Silver Swiss Cheez and Dimetime Green flame graphics shoot down the sides of the devilish body, enhancing the looks and adding action to the steel. Both the recessed A-arms and two-link are controlled by Slam Specialties airbags. Equipped with Lexani's Roma II 26x10.5-inch rims and Kumho tires, the sexy beast still lays frame.
