1999 Chevy Silverado 1500 - Family Pack

Brothers in Arms

Mar 28, 2016
Photographers: Truckin Staff
Sibling rivalry can be a negative thing when the infighting that goes on between offspring starts to escalate. But in the case of Oscar Quintero and his brother Jose, it meant these two brothers had a hand building each other’s trucks. Both have built a number of stunning show trucks; both are active members of the Krucial Koncepts club out of Fresno, California; and both have features running in this issue of Truckin. Talent and fame have not driven a spike between the two brothers, instead they egg each other on to increase their truck-building skills and produce the wildest trucks possible.
No stranger to the custom scene, Oscar has built a number of fully decked-out show trucks in the past. With this ’99, he was going for a simple, straightforward build. “I set out to build one of the sickest, single-cab Silverados–like nothing ever seen before.” What sets this build apart is the amount of time and effort that went into it, and how the truck came to be.

Instead of going with the traditional C-notch, Oscar opted to go with a fully mandrel-bent frame to get his Silverado to lie flat on the ground. Bad Habit Customs was tapped to do the bends. A set of McGaughys drop spindles, Slam Bags, Full Throttle shocks, and BHC came through again with a wishbone four-link, which also helped get that pavement-scraping presence. Making this ’06 sit pretty are a set of 24x10 Raceline Sniper wheels shod with 295/30R24 Toyo Proxes tires, which get their stopping power from R1 Concepts brake rotors.
The stock 5.3L receives a little extra oomph from a K&N intake, a set of JBA Headers, and a Flowmaster dual exhaust system. And the engine bay got a little dress-up in the form of paint-matched tubs, a smoothed firewall, and paint on all the covers and plastic shroud, as well.
The body of this single cab had its stock grille removed and replaced with a ’06 Silverado front clip with an SS grille and a custom-sectioned front bumper. Then the shaving party began, as the fender lines, door handles, antenna, and fuel door were removed. Memo Plaza of Stone Custom Fab in Fresno, California smoothed the bed with a large piece of sheet metal. The relocated fuel cell left its filler location in the bed and was capped with a motorcycle gas cap. House of Color Orion Silver with Lime Time Green flames and accents was sprayed by M&M Auto Body in Salinas, California.

Inside the cab, Daniel’s Custom Upholstery in Sanger, California fit a set of gray suede seat covers to the stock seats. A fiberglass console with custom-sprayed panels replaced the stock console, and Raceline came through again with a billet steering wheel. Tunes kick out of a Pioneer DEH-X6800BT head unit that are fed to two RE Audio 10-inch subs and powered by two RE Audio 1600 SA amps.
With a solid track record of truck design under his belt, Oscar, with the help and support of his brother Jose, and his fellow club members from Krucial Koncepts have come up with another stellar truck. Keep your eyes on these brothers in arms, as these two siblings have many more tricks up their sleeves.
