Southern Comfort Automotive is a restyler who has been in existence for many years, but who only now decided to team up with the experts at Lingenfelter Performance Engineering to wring the most out of the platforms upon which the company performs its upgrades.
Here, a new 2014 Chevy Silverado was first given a Southern Comfort Reaper restyled front clip and hood. The replacement front bumper added 8” of ground clearance, and it also incorporates a built-in skid plate. Two Rigid Industries E-Series 10” light bars were integrated in the front bumper, along with six daytime running lights for a unique appearance. Wide body fender flares were incorporated, and Reaper graphics were added to the package.
Inside, custom embroidered head rests, painted door panels and interior accent pieces join Reaper gauges from U.S. Speedo. Making those gauges rise upwards has been left to the Lingenfelter tuned, Magnuson-TSV1900 Supercharged 6.2 Liter V-8, which raises the HP from 420 HP stock to 550 HP.
General Grabber tires on Reaper wheels require greater clearance, and a 3” Ride-Tech long travel suspension system with Fox Racing 3.0 shocks with remote reservoirs does the trick. Available now through select Chevrolet dealerships, this particular truck was sold to a customer in Dubai.
Southern Comfort Automotive and Lingenfelter Performance Engineering together are making truck performance, comfort and appearance in the form of the Reaper one that will be prized by enthusiasts both here and abroad.
