The 2014 Silverado 1500 was designed and engineered to deliver the capability that customers have come to expect from Chevrolet pickups. 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 Chevy trucks and now JConcepts is bringing another favorite to the RC loyalist.
A heavy project for the JConcepts R&D team was developing this body to length and width specifications while maintaining the single cab layout. A highly popular body in the 1:1 community, the single cab has a mystique. From the large budget teams all the way to independent trucks, the 2014 Chevy is an important shell in the industry. Settling on the 12”-12.5” wheelbase was easy, deciding bed length and wheel well openings was a painstaking process behind the scenes.
The end result, the Silverado has an inspiring look, something that makes a driver proud to be a truck enthusiast without the fear to race it. The exterior design blends a strong and study look while refining the details reserved for modern aesthetics. The muscle was chiseled into the tire openings while the aerodynamics remain for the truck to hold its own in a straight-line.
A twin-port grille, full-width bumper and dual power hump hood create a strong presence, which is carried through in sculpted body sides and fender flares. 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 2014 Silverado’s bed features a slight recess which painters can leave clear or detail to their specification on any build. No race truck would be complete without a bobbed rear bedside to give racers extra clearance and an unmistakable visual rake.
Each package includes window mask, new 2014 generation Chevy Silverado specific decal sheet and clear polycarbonate body. The product is always backed by JConcepts customer service, supported and used trackside by our world-wide racing team and developed by professionals with style and authenticity.
