Over the past two decades, MAD Industries has established a reputation for piecing together impressive vehicle builds using high-end aftermarket parts and automotive accessories. Now, we’re checking out the company’s latest Chevrolet Silverado 1500, which rocks a unique black-and-blue bruiser style.
MAD Industries started this particular project with a 2019 Chevrolet Silverado RST Crew Cab equipped with the Z71 Off-Road Package. Combining four-door convenience with off-road capability, this particular example is powered by the naturally aspirated 5.3L V8 L84 with Dynamic Fuel Management, which in stock form doles out 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque.
To give it this Chevrolet Silverado the appropriate tone, MAD Industries added a Gibson Performance Exhaust system with dual rear outlets. The engine oil comes from AMSOIL and an Odyssey battery was added as well.
The biggest upgrades can be found outside, where this Chevrolet Silverado 1500 was fitted with a custom “Concept Cap” from LEER with an SUV-style rear door. The cap is offered with LED lighting, keyless entry, and a headliner, and looks quite good on top of the pickup. To note, this cap would defeat the Rear Camera Mirror functionality, as we covered previously.
Outback, we find a BedSlide cargo system to enhance the rear storage space even further.
Rigid Industries is also well-represented in this build with its LED RDS-Series Pro 54-inch Sport light bar, Series Pro Spot Lights, and RI 800 flashlight.
The profile reveals AMP Research Powerstep running boards, as well as Air Design fender flares with Super RIM Bolt rivet-style fitment. The truck rides on Pro Truck-Lift Performance Springs from Eibach, under which rolls a set of forged Hardline wheels sized at 20 inches by 9.5 inches. Wrapping the rollers is A/T Gripper tires sized at 285/55R20.
The body is covered in BASF RM Line Onyx HD paint, while the wheels also get a custom finish. Finally, the cabin space gets black Roadwire custom leather upholstery with blue accents, while select interior components were painted in Northsky Metallic Blue paint.
