Move over, muscle cars, Truckin Magazine is here and we have invaded the Week 2 Wicked Tech Center to offer a fresh perspective on just what can be built in a week. From September 17th through the 21st, Tech Center manager Jason Scudellari, Truckin Editor, Jeremy Cook, and a whole host of other misfits will take a bone-stock 2017 Chevrolet Silverado Z-71 and make it into a terror on and off the road and pretty nice to look at, while we’re at it.

We will be starting under the hood by adding Magnuson Supercharger to the already stout 6.2L powerplant. We will also install ceramic-coated smog-legal headers from Gibson performance as well as a stainless catback exhaust system. The Silverado will get an 8-inch lift from Superlift Suspension that features a complete King Shock set-up, and once the PFC Brakes are installed we’ll fill those wheelwells with 20-inch Mamba wheels and 37-inch Hercules tires and add Nitro Gears to climb mountains and fly on the freeway. From there we’ll be upgrading the interior with a full JL Audio sound system, while CoverCraft’s Carhartt seat covers will protect the factory leather during off-road excursuions. We’ll add a Roll N Lock bed cover and a whole host of exterior upgrades, but we’re going to leave all those final details to the imagination.
