2014 Chevy Silverado- White Lines

Pure as the Driven Snow

We have all spent countless hours in the garage or driveway assembling parts and building custom vehicles—and Jose Coria Jr. is no different. Growing up in Humble, Texas, he assisted his father as he ran power tools all through the night, utilizing his skillset to modify his collection of custom trucks. Jose and his pops constantly had to answer to the police, because the neighbors called to complain about the noise. After each incident, the father and son team insisted they would “keep it down.” What started as just a hobby turned into something much more when Jose built a 6,000-square-foot shop called Finesse Concepts.

Although the shop is family operated for the most part, Jose took the reins and began promoting it in the Texas area. As we all know, the best way to promote the work you can do is to show people your talents firsthand. Jose set out to find the perfect canvas and chose a ’14 Chevy Silverado High Country, which he purchased new. The first weekend with the new truck, he added a quick drop and ordered some wheels. One month later, he began to get serious. Once the 30-inch wheels arrived, he tore the Chevy down and handbuilt a 2x4 frame. He ran a four-link suspension and combined it with an X-link using Heim joints instead of regular bushings. An Air Lift 3H3P air management system was put in place with two Flo tanks and four Viair compressors.

The floor and bedrails were raised to accommodate the body drop, and the front tubs and firewall were shaved and color matched. The door handles were deleted and replaced with Kindig It flushed bar-style handles to replicate those of a Tesla. As a huge fan of the newer-style 2500 hood, Jose molded in an ’18 Silverado version with a chrome scoop and horizontal bar to match the grille and headlamps. The plastic bumper was out of place, so Jose added an ’18 High Country front bumper and molded it in. And, since the stock plastic liner on top of the Chevy bed was undesirable, Jose capped it and added sheetmetal to the bedsides. For the interior, he added cowhide double-diamond-stitched seats and suede accents. He’s currently in the process of finishing the cabin.

Jose has been traveling all over Texas showing White Lines at shows and showcasing the work he and his family can perform at Finesse Concepts. He wishes to thank his parents, Jose Coria Sr. and Veronica Coria, for providing him with the knowledge and business ethics that have catapulted him to success. He is currently enlisting Jose at Pistolero Designs for a paintjob that will stand out among the sea of Chevy trucks—and, based on the title, you should be able to guess the color!
