If you like the Chevy Silverado ZR2, but need something with a generous helping of custom aggression, then the folks at Flat Out Autos may have a solution. It’s called the KR2, and it takes the Silverado to all-new heights with a total vehicle conversion. Now, Flat Out Autos is teasing its new Chevy KR2 ahead of an official reveal at the upcoming SEMA Show in Las Vegas.
For those readers who may be drawing a blank, Flat Out Autos is the same custom builder responsible for creating the modern-day GMC Jimmy that GM Authority covered previously. Taking a brand-new GMC Sierra 1500 Single Cab / Long Bed, the folks at Flat Out chop the pickup to recreate the look of the classic K5 Chevy Blazer SUV, complete with all-modern underpinnings, creating something truly unique and ready for adoration by enthusiasts.
Now, Flat Out is expanding on its modern Jimmy conversion to create the new Chevy KR2. Taking a brand-new Chevy Silverado 1500 (or GMC Sierra 1500), the KR2 ups the ante with considerably wider fenders sourced from FiberwerX, both up front and in the rear, as well as a set of 37-inch tires and some long-travel off-road suspension from Dirt King. The rear is topped by a carbon fiber roof structure from Sankuer Composite Technologies.
Pop the roof off, and you’ll find what appears to be an exposed rear seating area protected by roll bars. There’s also a RIGd Supply rear tire carrier to complete the look.
With styling from the Silverado ZR2, Glacier Blue Metallic paint, and an interior space decked-out in eye-searing red leather interior, this custom Chevy is sure to get noticed no matter where it may go. The builders will even toss a supercharger under the hood to match the go with the show.
Look for the new Chevy KR2 to make its big debut later this year at the 2023 SEMA Show.
