There’s a new trend emerging in truck these days, as Chevrolet Performance‘s dedicated publication The Block, points out. Rather than building a truck up for the ultimate off-road experience, and looking ridiculous rolling down local freeways, prerunner builds look equally at home around town, or crawling over rocks.
Prerunner trucks are modeled after trophy trucks, with a major following on the west coast. Chevrolet Performance decided it wants to introduce the look to the east coast, and with a bone stock 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LTZ, began sketching out the ultimate prerunner build.
Not only will the truck be used for recreation, but it should still serve practical as it runs errands to pick up crate motors, transport staff members and tow cars. Therefore the prerunner build seemed like the perfect fit.
Once the team decided on a design, Pfaff Designs who created the rendering you see above, the search was on to find just the right lift kit for the truck. Ultimately, Baja Designs, located in Anaheim, California, had exactly what suited the Silverado. Something not too tall, but enough to give it some credibility it its design.
No doubt the lift kit is the most important aspect of this build, which will allow the crew to jump this truck and properly exercise its muscles. Many other aftermarket companies are becoming involved in this build including, LEER truck caps, King Off-Road Racing Shocks and Truck Vault for the ultimate in storage solutions.
The truck is currently in its infancy, and The Block invites you to follow along as their project, sponsored by Mobil 1, is slowly pieced together and paraded around. You can check out the whole report here, and stay tuned for incoming updates on the truck’s build.
