Custom Truck Thursday
Today marks the last of our Custom Truck Thursday blogs. We started this as a way to slyly let people know about our Fleet Department and Don Wheaton and the awesome work they do. Edmonton, Alberta and the surrounding area has an unusually high number of pickup truck owners, we are very proud to be able to help them customize their trucks to stand out from the crowd. The response to our Custom Truck Thursday posts has been nothing short of outstanding.
Even though this is our last week for posting new vehicles for Custom Truck Thursday, you can still enter the contest to win $500 in custom accessories simply email Brandi Martin, email@example.com. The deadline has been moved to Monday (Apr. 6) we will draw a winner next week and announce the winner on the following Thursday.
Now, on to the trucks!
First on this week’s Custom Truck Thursday slate is one of the most heavily customized trucks we profiled. Kris K. owns a 2015 GMC Sierra 2500 that is equal parts business and attitude. The black on black paint and accessory scheme is very intense. Adding to the muscular aesthetic of this truck is a 12-inch lift kit and custom tires, with dualies and custom painted wheels. We don’t know what Kris does in his free time, but a safe guess would be he does it anywhere he wants.
Tyson K. has gone a different way with his diesel-powered 2014 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD. This truck has gone with a striking white paint job that does an excellent job of using a black bowtie badge and body-color matching grille accents to separate itself from the crowd. The custom tires and rims are fully on display thanks the 6.5-inch lift kit that has been included. Specially designed running boards and custom mud flaps round out the additional work added to this machine
Everyone was a little surprised that it took until the final week of Custom Truck Thursday for somebody to submit a customized SUV. Cam S. was nice enough to show us his 2014 Cadillac ESV with black paint and sharply contrasting chrome accents along the waistline of the vehicle and door handles. The custom tires have plenty of clearance to work with thanks to the seven-inch lift package that was added. If there is a better example of a customized family vehicle on the road in Edmonton, it’s doing a great job hiding from us.
