<B>2003 Chevrolet Silverado SS</B><P>Anyone here into trucks? Looks good, but needs to be lowered a bit. I think that it is supposed to be faster than the Ford F150 Lightning, which is a beast. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif"><P> <IMG SRC="http://osx.wieck.com/pv/WKA/2002/06/27/WKA2002062754472_pv.jpg"> <P> <IMG SRC="http://osx.wieck.com/pv/WKA/2002/06/27/WKA2002062754508_pv.jpg"> <P> <IMG SRC="http://osx.wieck.com/pv/WKA/2002/06/27/WKA2002062753990_pv.jpg"> <P> <IMG SRC="http://osx.wieck.com/pv/WKA/2002/06/27/WKA2002062754008_pv.jpg"> <P> <IMG SRC="http://osx.wieck.com/pv/WKA/2002/06/27/WKA2002062753971_pv.jpg"> <P>-Drew

I like this look a lot better than the Lightning...and not using Altezza-R-I-C-E tail lights is definitely a plus. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif"> I do agree the car will look a lot better if it's lowered.<P><BR> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Originally posted by InDy:<BR><B>Anyone here into trucks?</B><HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>Not me <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/rolleyes.gif"> ... <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"><BR><p>[This message has been edited by The_one_n_only (edited 06-28-2002).]

If I'm not mistaken, the entire Silverado line-up is scheduled to get that new front fascia for 2003. It's a definite improvement.

Silverado schmilderado. The real truck news is the 500HP Dodge Ram SRT-10 with the Viper engine - not a cast iron version of the 8.0L V10 as in current Rams but <I>the</I> Viper engine.<P>12.9 out of the showroom. Available in your friendly Dodge dealer soon (for real).<P> <IMG SRC="http://www.pickuptruck.com/IMAGES/autoshows/naias2002/dodge/srt101.jpg"> <P>

Chevy-<BR>I definately like the silverado's looks better than the lightning, and given they used a bigger engine to achieve those #s... that leaves room to always add a supercharger <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif"> <BR>Dodge-<BR>SWEET, but... no AWD?? as if the viper had enough trouble getting the power to the ground! and don't forget about the 24in wheels! Bling Bling! <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"><P>

I know that the LS1 and older LT1 engines (Camaro, Firebird, Corvette) do not like superchargers at all. However, they do love nitrous <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"><P>There's 24" wheels on that thing? Do they even make street tires that big?<P>
