Work Truck Wednesday: Maximum Storage In This Harbor Service Body

 






We're starting this post with the Silverado 3500HD Crew Cab Dually, which has a 14,000 lb. gross vehicle weight rating. It is powered by the Duramax diesel and Allison HD automatic transmission and has plenty of creature comforts. The quiet cab has room for up to six adults. So, that is off to a great start, for sure. 

Now, we add a 9' Harbor Service Body with the Master Locking System, HD material rack, coated bed area, hitch, and connector. The compartments are huge and 24" deep to carry a lot of stuff, but the real treat here is the 56" high compartments, which give maximum storage to get the job done efficiently and effectively. 

This is a rare combination and may be perfect for your needs.

Official - NEW Corvette ZR1 Will Be Revealed This Summer


Chevrolet has officially announced the impending arrival of the most extreme iteration of the mid-engine Corvette yet - the Corvette ZR1. Set to be unveiled this summer, the ZR1 marks a new pinnacle for Chevrolet's iconic sports car, promising unprecedented levels of performance and engineering sophistication.

Though Chevrolet has been tight-lipped about the specific details, the automotive community is buzzing with speculation. At the heart of the rumors is a twin-turbocharged version of the 5.5-liter, naturally aspirated, flat-plane crank V-8 engine currently powering the Z06. This upgrade could significantly boost the ZR1's output, propelling it beyond the 755 horsepower mark set by its predecessor, potentially reaching around 800 horsepower.

Another groundbreaking possibility is the integration of the electric front drive axle from the E-Ray, Chevrolet's performance hybrid. This would not only mark the ZR1's debut as an all-wheel-drive vehicle but also underscore Chevy's commitment to blending traditional muscle with cutting-edge technology.

Performance expectations are sky-high for the ZR1, with experts predicting a 0-60 mph acceleration time in the low two-second range. This is no small feat and would place the ZR1 among the elite in sports car performance.

Aerodynamics will play a crucial role in the ZR1's design, pushing the envelope beyond the already aggressive setup seen on the Z06. Expect a more pronounced wing, splitter, and an array of scoops and canards, all meticulously engineered to tame the beast at high speeds, particularly on the track where it's meant to shine.

Despite no official word on pricing, it's anticipated that the ZR1 will ascend to the top of the Corvette lineup, with estimates suggesting a starting price above $150,000. This positions the ZR1 not only as a testament to Chevrolet's engineering prowess but also as a luxury performance vehicle that rivals the best in the world.

As the summer reveal approaches, anticipation for the Corvette ZR1 builds. It's set to redefine what's possible for American sports cars, melding raw power with sophisticated technology and aerodynamics, promising an unparalleled driving experience.

Work Truck Wednesday. A Place For Everything and Everything In Its Place!

 







This big van has a small footprint, so much room, and excellent interior management of tools, parts, and more. There is still plenty of room for larger items. Just imagine all the different contractors who could use such a rig: electricians, plumbers, remodelers, mobile repair services, and many more. 

The turning radius is very tight with this Chevrolet Express Cutaway 3500 chassis. It is powered by a 6.6 V8, automatic transmission, and creature comforts to make for pleasant driving. The body is a 12' Supreme Spartan Cargo Straight Van with FRP sidewalls, a roll-up rear door for full access to the rear, and an air deflector built on the front roof section for less drag. 

But the best is the van's interior features, which help keep your stuff organized and ready to access. In addition, consider the billboards on both sides and the rear door to advertise your business wherever you drive!
