Dealer Services International (DSI) is a company you've probably never heard of but are entirely familiar with. It's one of the groups responsible for hopping up the shiny new trucks you see parked in front of car-dealer lots. This company is the one that's accessorizing the trucks that are parked on top of buildings, on steep ramps, or any other position designed for maximum exposure. DSI packages proven aftermarket parts together to give new trucks the look you're after but also to give dealerships no-hassle sales. DSI won't put a part on a truck that it expects to result in an unhappy customer and a return trip to the dealer.
The No Fear-edition '08 Chevy Silverado is one of DSI's most recent collaborations. You can order the No Fear signature parts individually, as a package, or pick up a brand-new truck with everything installed and finance the whole deal. Here's a look at the Extreme-edition truck.
Suspension
Explorer Pro Comp's 6-inch suspension lift gives the No Fear Silverado a boost in ride height without sacrificing ride quality or handling. A one-piece front crossmember lowers the mounting points of the front control arms, and cast knuckles drop the mounting location of the wheels. Depending on which stage kit you opt for, your truck will ride on Explorer's new coilovers or the factory units with ES-series shocks. The rear suspension receives MX6dampers.

Exterior & Interior
Exterior dress-up items include new badges that proclaim your No Fear status. A replacement mesh grille insert cleans up the front end using 5052-grade aluminum.

On the inside, the No Fear theme is taken to a new level with monogrammed floormats, billet pedals,and a stainless steel-look gauge cluster.
