Belltech’s 2019 Silverado RST 2WD
WHO DOESN’T KNOW THE NAME BELLTECH SPORT TRUCKS? OK, I guess it’s possible that this is the first time you have opened up a Street Trucks book, or maybe you’re just getting to the age that trucks are influencing your lifestyle. In that case, let me introduce you to one of the most long-standing companies in the sport truck industry.
Belltech has been around as long as I can remember. Their bright factory-red Chevy trucks have graced the pages of custom truck magazines for many, many years. Whenever a new body style Silverado or full-size Chevy comes out, Belltech seems to always be the fi rst one riding around with an aggressive drop and a new set of big shiny wheels.
Most truck owners just sit back and wait for some bolt-on products to come out for that brand-new truck they have parked in their driveway, but not this crew. Research and development start as soon as they can get their hands a new factory truck off the production line. Spindles are mocked up and all the other components are designed in-house. Engineering the perfect suspension takes years of experience and knowledge to get it right, and Belltech has perfected the process.
After this quick education on an industry titan like Belltech, if you see a brand-new body style truck driving around that’s the same as your latest purchase, you know just the company to call to make it look as sweet as theirs.
Check out Belltech’s latest release in the form of a 2019 Chevy Silverado crew cab. This truck has a very aggressive stance on staggered fi t wheels and color-matched exterior components. Let’s dive into the details and see exactly how they made this happen.
