Looking to buy a big pickup — a really, really, big pickup? The most expensive truck on eBay right now is the Chevrolet Silverado Bigfoot show stopper that debuted at the 2008 SEMA show, with a Buy It Now price of $199,995 and zero bids.
Just about everything mechanically on this truck has been changed. With a 30-inch lift kit sitting on 51-inch 500/70/R24 Firestone DuraForce AT-R tires, this street-legal monster truck will be the tallest thing on the road. The original axles have been swapped for the front and rear ones found on the GMC 4500 TopKick series trucks. Four-link coil-over Sway-A-Way shocks and Eibach springs help with this beast’s suspension. There’s four-wheel steering, an upgraded and rebuilt transmission from North American Diesel Performance, and a GM transfer case, too.
The tweaked 500-horsepower Duramax engine, now tuned to run on biodiesel, is backed by a Fass Fuel System and Jaz fuel cell. Accompanying Bigfoot’s matte-finished red and black paint job are Fiberglass fenders and bumpers from TrailReady products that just scream, “Move outta my way!” Inside the color-matched interior, swathed in leather, you’ll find an upgraded Sony audio/visual system.
In August 2008, Bigfoot 4x4 Inc., widely known for building the famous Ford F-250 Bigfoot monster truck, bought a stock Silverado HD 2500 and began extensive work on building this custom rig. After the 15-week build process, the Silverado Bigfoot debuted at the 2008 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, winning the Mothers Choice Award for excellence in design and the 2008 SEMA design award for best GM truck.
