The Chevy Silverado special editions are as rugged as rugged gets. Today standard edition Silverados hold their own in terms of their rough and manly exterior, and has vastly improved in aesthetics and engine performance. But for the beefiest and most testosterone-injected pick-up truck, it HAS to be a special edition Chevrolet Silverado. It doesn’t matter if its the Redline, Custom Sport, or Special Ops version; its body size, special head lights, and driving performance is certainly a major step up. However, the Silverado can ALWAYS get more rugged. How? With a 50″ curved 288W LED light bar.
I’m sure that you have seen Silverado trucks and the like drive around with an LED light bar on top in your area, some less than others like me who live in SoCal. But they do pop up every once in a while! Whenever I see one drive by, generic rock music plays in my head as I think about how macho and freaking big the truck that whizzed past me was. And then I see the LED light bar set on top and I think, “Man that must be super bright. Would I get blinded looking at it?”
So a typical LED light bar gives drivers the visibility they need for mountain driving, dark, rural areas, and construction sites while giving the truck a rugged, manly, and macho feel to it right? What about the lower bumper grill mounted 20″ 100W LED light bar for the 2011-2013 Chevy Silverado 1500? Perhaps… not so much.
When most people think about how much you can do with a license plate, not a whole lot comes to mind. It’s just a sheet of metal with numbers and letters right? It is well known that your license plate can be used as an identity tool; you can find out a person’s name, address, registration, price history of the car, and so much more. However, creative uses are limited to setting the tags off to the side or set on your dashboard, or adding a frame. Did you know that you can equip your license plate with a high power CREE LED pod light set?
Occasionally, we rent GMCs from U-Haul to transport our products because we find their service to be reliable. We can always count on them to provide clean pick-up trucks with no issues. This time around, we discovered an opportunity to test our new LED light bar. The opportunity especially worked out because the GMC model we rented was a Sierra 1500, which was exactly the trim we wanted to test on. And so, we decided to take liberties with our rental truck to install our new behind the grille 150W LED Light Bar for the 2014-up GMC Sierra 1500.
This is a special year for the Chevy, because it’s the Camaro’s 50th anniversary. It’s pretty surreal to see the iconic car celebrating 50 years since its inception, so it’s practically a no-brainer that the Camaro will get a feature at this year’s SEMA. Here’s some of the featured concepts showcased by Chevy this year:
Camaro Turbo AutoX
The AutoX name refers to autocross, with a 2.0 liter engine and an upgraded suspension, brakes, exhaust, and air intake. These upgrades make the AutoX very appealing to younger enthusiasts, and those who are just getting into the car game.
Some notable little accessories on the AutoX is the front tow hook, Euro-style side markers, rear spoiler, and a GoPro camera mount for enthusiasts who like to spend their free time on the track.
