Photo 1/15 | 2005 Chevrolet Silverado 2500hd Rear Quarter | Matt Logan’s ’05 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD is the result of one of the cleanest builds we have ever seen. Why? Matt stripped the truck all the way down to the frame and started from there. No detail was left to chance.
Photo 2/15 | 2005 Chevrolet Silverado 2500hd Rearend | The addition of a roll pan at the rear of the truck certainly cleans up the look. Here you can see the AAM 1150 rearend, which houses 3.73 gears and gets the majority of the abuse from the 6.6L Duramax LLY engine.
Photo 3/15 | 2005 Chevrolet Silverado 2500hd Toyo Tire | The two-piece 20x12 Fuel Renegade wheels are wrapped in Toyo Proxes S/T tires. Dig the custom lettering package applied to the sidewalls?
Photo 4/15 | 2005 Chevrolet Silverado 2500hd Lifted | Four inches of lift give the truck great presence, but the lights Matt modified himself really set this Silverado apart. The blue hue of the LEDs matches the color of the engine and transmission.
Photo 5/15 | 2005 Chevrolet Silverado 2500hd Blues | One thing that stops people in their tracks is the engine’s brilliant shade of blue. The block itself is actually painted bright white.
Photo 6/15 | 2005 Chevrolet Silverado 2500hd Interior | With the exception of Auto Meter gauges, a Longhorn Fabrication dash insert, and a beefed-up stereo system, the interior is largely stock in this Silverado 2500HD.
Photo 7/15 | 2005 Chevrolet Silverado 2500hd Being Worked On | It took a lot of time, blood, sweat, and tears for Matt to get his truck to this level of perfection.
Photo 8/15 | 2005 Chevrolet Silverado 2500hd Traction Bars | With all the power Matt’s truck has on hand, the Longhorn Fabrication traction bars and 5-inch-diameter driveshaft by GRS Drivelines are not just there for looks, they are worked hard.
Photo 9/15 | 2005 Chevrolet Silverado 2500hd Shocks | We don’t think we’re too far out of line when we say we doubt this truck was as clean when it left the factory as it is now. The Fox remote-reservoir 2-inch shocks enhance both ride comfort and handling performance.
Photo 10/15 | 2005 Chevrolet Silverado 2500hd Bed | The truck’s bed is still quite usable. With the FASS Diesel Fuel Systems 220-gph lift pump and SoFlo Diesel’s dual cat stacks tucked up front, this truck can still haul freight while it is hauling tail.
Photo 11/15 | 2005 Chevrolet Silverado 2500hd Engine Bay | If you thought the underside of the truck was the only well-manicured section of this beast, you thought wrong. Surgically maintained, you can eat off any part in the engine bay.
Photo 12/15 | 2005 Chevrolet Silverado 2500hd Transmission | Yes, the engine and transmission are fully detailed and painted to match. The Allison 1000 five-speed automatic gearbox was built with full billet internals.
Photo 13/15 | 2005 Chevrolet Silverado 2500hd Shock Hoops | Cognito Motorsports components make up the majority of the front end. The company’s shock hoops are seen here, holding onto the Fox 2-inch shocks. Cognito’s entire lift kit was used to raise the nose 4 inches.
Photo 14/15 | 2005 Chevrolet Silverado 2500hd Street And Strip Ready | No, you are not sneaking a peek into the side of a truck that was brought off the lot and modified. This thing is 11 years old and it gets used hard on the street and the strip.
Photo 15/15 | 2005 Chevrolet Silverado 2500hd Engine | The chassis dyno confirms this beauty throws down 850 hp and 1,400 lb-ft of torque. There’s an Engineered Diesel–modified BorgWarner S475 billet turbocharger forcing air into the powerplant and Exergy Performance 100-percent-over injectors being fed by Exergy’s 12mm stroker pump.
