The US brand JConcepts has released another wonderful monster truck body! The 2005 Chevy Silverado is a big, all-American truck, and it looks the part, with its wide face and stylish yet slab-sided flanks. Ninety-degree angles dominate the styling providing that all-important Chevy “bowtie” look and the horizontal hardlines along the body panels ensures the truck’s dramatic road presence.
When it comes to monster trucks, Chevrolet has a die-hard following going back to the square body designs of the 70’s and 80’s. A keen eye will detect the family heritage in monster trucks and now JConcepts is bringing another favorite to the RC loyalist.
The chiseled front-end, bumper fascia and front tire openings gives off a lot of “monster madness” while the aerodynamics remain for the truck to hold its own in a straight-line. A twin-port grille, full-width bumper and “power hump” hood create a strong presence, which is carried through in sculpted body sides. The grille area has not been compromised and accepts the detailed JConcepts decal sheet and includes two different grille and headlight options. The front fascia is strong and while the large tire openings swoop through, the bumper has recessed areas for side-marker lights and air inlet.
The tailgate is rigid in appearance with a slight undercut that is so common on the Chevrolet trucks. The 2005 Silverado’s bed features a slight recess which painters can leave clear or detail to their specification on any build.
