This looks mean.
The Chevrolet Silverado has had a Trail Boss version for some time, and the Colorado has finally received the same treatment. The Silverado is still the big daddy though, and it's about to get the engine it deserves. There's also a hardcore ZR2 version on the way, but the Trail Boss remains an excellent choice - unless you want a short cab. Fortunately, there's a custom shop called JC Wheels that specializes in creating single cab versions of regular trucks. The shop is based in Mexico, where a 'Regular Cab Short Box' version of the Silverado 1500 is offered, except it is only offered in Work Truck trim. Thus, JC Wheels decided to give it some attitude.
JC Wheels has built this Trail Boss single cab from the entry-level WT version, but the job has been done really well and appears to utilize genuine GM parts. The most obvious upgrade is the Trail Boss front fascia, but the team has also added Trail Boss badges and decals, OEM alloy wheels in all-terrain rubber, OEM aide assist steps, and even the red front tow hooks that you'd expect. A three-inch lift kit has been fitted too, as has some pretty dark window tint. It's unclear if any modifications have been made to increase straight-line performance or interior comfort, but the overall look is surprisingly pleasing.
We think this is a great conversion, and it looks relatively inexpensive too, but we highly doubt that GM USA will ever give such a vehicle the green light, as the traditional Double Cab and Crew Cab variants are selling like mad. According to a report from late last year, the Silverado Trail Boss - the Custom Trail Boss and LT Trail Boss especially - make up one fifth of all Silverado 1500 sales in the US. That being said, a new 2022 version of the Silverado is on the way, and as automakers continue to look for ways to make the most of the final days of non-electrified vehicles, we could imagine a homologated Trail Boss single cab being sold down south.
