|Chevy Hybrid Pickup Truck
While most off-road trucking enthusiasts might view a 4x4 truck that is both a powerful off-road truck and a fuel efficient hybrid vehicle as a bit of a contradiction in terms, Chevrolet has managed to pull off the feat fairly convincingly with the Chevrolet Silverado Hybrid.
|One of a kind driveway build!
I started my driveway build with a stock 1993 Chevy K1500 plow truck. The only working space I had was a single wide driveway as I don't have a garage to work in. My intensions were to build a 4X4 that would turn heads as well as perform.
|BIG Suburban -49 Inch Tires & Atlas Gears
Go Big - Go Suburban - Go Suburban AND fit 49 inch tires! - That's BIG!
Kristjan Kristjansson - Stjani - has done just that. After spending countless hours and days in his garage his 49 inch modified GMC Suburban is now street legal again.
|Pinzgauer VS Suburban
Hi my name is Clay, I started off last Summer season just busting buttons, after close to twenty years of giving 4X4 tours in the San Juan Mountains of Colorado, I was finally getting a chance to drive a vehicle that was truly different. Over the years I have driven quite a variety of American made vehicles in these mountains, Jeep CJ 7s & 8s, J20 PUs and Cherokees, but the old war wagon that I have drived over black bear pass hundreds of times was the 80s era 3/4 ton leaf spring suspension, 350 V8, 4 speed tranny, open differential, you know old school all the way GMC/Chevy Suburban. But Dave of Dave's Mountain Tours of Telluride Colorado ( telluridetours.com ) had something new in store for me.
|49 Inch Modified Patrol/Chevy
Time has come to take away manufacturing faults of this otherwise fine automobile. Common 44 inch modification was not quite up to par. Engine and driveline (mostly front wheel bearings) proved to small and to weak.
|Coldwater at it’s best

|Chevy Blazer S10 Convertible
I live here in Rochester, NY we have some hard winters here and they use lots of salt here on the roads. so to find cheap rusty trucks is no problem.
I took a rusty 1989 GMC S10 blazer, put a 3.5 inch shackle lift in rear and a torsion tweak in the front to get the lift needed for the 31 inch 15x8 with 4 inch off-set tires. And trimmed out the front fenders. That's the look I wanted with the tires sticking out far I think it looks rugged and stable.

Silverado has become a leader in 4x4 Chevy Pickups
|4x4 Chevy SUV
The first 4x4 Chevy SUV was the Blazer. In 1969, the Blazer hit showroom floors and was only available as a four wheel drive. It was introduced to compete with the Ford Bronco and International Harvester Scout. At this point in history, the pickup truck was not really seen as an offroad vehicle, and the Blazer successfully combined pickup type luxuries such as air conditioning and an automatic transmission with the offroad capability of a vehicle like the Scout. Not only that, but the idea of sacrificing the bed in favor of extra interior space proved to be a popular one. Before everything was said and done, even Jeep, whose CJ was the original target of all three vehicles, had released trucks such as the Cherokee with similar ideas of marrying off road capability with luxury.
|4X4 Chevy Trucks
The 4x4 Chevy trucks come in a variety of models. Chevrolet is one of the top manufacturers of 4x4's and has produced many trucks in this category through the years, and have also added the production of hybrid trucks to their line to maintain their edge in the industry.
From 1960 to 1999, the Chevy and GMC pick up truck lines were known as the C/K line. The "K" was denoted the symbol for the four wheel drive trucks while the "C" meant it was a two wheel drive. In 1999 the Chevrolet Silverado and the the GMC Sierra replaced the C/K light duty pick up trucks, followed by the Silverado HD and Sierra HD in 2001. The Silverado is now a hybrid vehicle as well, and the Silverado model is the number one seller in both the United States and Canada..
|4x4 Chevy Van
The first Chevy vans were based off the Chevrolet Corvair. That's right, the little weird looking car. Of course, this produced a not quite as little, still very weird looking van. They came out in 1964 and I, personally, have never even seen one. Well, maybe I have, but I don't think I would have made the connection between that thing and a Chevrolet van. For all extends and purposes, this goofy looking little creature was available with only minor updates and facelifts until 1970 as rear wheel drive only.
|Chevy 4x4 History
The Chevrolet 4x4 has been around for quite a while and is definitely one of the most iconic vehicles in American culture. There is not a Chevrolet pickup or SUV that has been made of which there are not ample examples of lifted off roaders all over the place. Four inch lifts and 32 inch tires are just not terribly uncommon in the United States, especially in the South, and these trucks may or may not ever actually be taken off the road. Don't ever mention that to their owners, though. You can call it a 4x4 or you can call it a show truck, but don't ever suggest it wouldn't make it through the mud. That might cause a fight.
