sYenko is a name synonymous with performance. For more than half a century Yenko has been tricking out high horsepower Camaros and other muscle cars to meet their customers need for speed. With the horsepower wars heating up in the truck and offroad market, Yenko wanted to throw their name in the hat and show what they are capable of. Meet the all new 800HP Yenko/SC Silverado Offroad, a bad ass 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 designed to rival the RAM TRX and Ford Raptor.

For suspension, this Yenko builds on the trucks original capability and ups the ante with next level performance with the help of BDS and FOX. The BDS 4" lift system is fitted along with BDS UCAs and FOX 2.5 factory race series DSC coilovers. Also includes are a pair of heavy duty sway bars and rear Recoil traction bars to help put the power to the ground.

For power, this truck taps into the same 6.2-liter LT1 V8 used in its street truck variant which generates 800 horsepower and 720 torques. That output is achieved with a supercharger, forged internals, ported heads, and a high-flow stainless steel exhaust system. This coupled to an upgraded 6-speed automatic transmission. To help stop all that power a set of Brembo 6-piston front brake calipers and 16" vented rotors. For shoes this beast is fitted with 295/60r20 Nitto Ridge Grapplers on custom 20" wheels. Beyond that it features several custom touches to include its LED package, retractable running boards, the custom vented hood, fender flares, roll bar, Yenko badging and custom graphics packages just to name a few...

Best part about it all, you can get all this power still factory backed by a 3yr/36,000-mile warranty. There will only be 50 of these monsters built and each one is to the customers specification on color and options.

This rig, better known as The General, is our 2012 Ford Super Duty. This rig has been one of the hardest working trucks in our fleet. From towing our rigs, to wheeling the trails, to roaring through the town, this rig does the job, and it does it well.

We recently took this rig out on a fall colors trip around our home state of Michigan. We started off by driving from Coldwater MI, to the Silver Lake Sand Dunes, where this rig ripped through the sand like it owned the place. This rig also pulled quite a few people out who got stuck. After a day at the dunes, we went up the coast do check out the tunnel of trees, the Mackinac Bridge, and then found a motel up in the UP (Michigan's Upper Peninsula) to rest before a fun day out on the trails.  The next day was filled with two tracks, mud, and some beautiful fall colors. This rig ripped through the trails with ease. Check out the full recap from the [Off] Road-Trip Adventure here.

As you can see, we are still enjoying every adventure with this rig, even after all these years. Where should we take it next?

2016 Toyota Tundra

Never short of power and fun, the BDS Tundra was a blast to have out exploring the Fall color tour around our home state of Michigan. Where it was pounding the pavement on the more than 1000-mile journey, exploring the Silver Lake Sand Dunes, the Tunnel of Trees or backcountry of the UP (Upper Peninsula), this truck was comfortable and capable and took whatever we could throw at it during the [Off] Road-Trip.

While it might not be the biggest truck in the BDS fleet, this truck is a workhorse and has earned its place these last several years. It drives comfortably on the road, tows our rigs, and handles great out on the trails. This truck has been reliable for everything we have used it for and we couldn't be more happy with it.

Check out the Tundra on the [Off] Road-Trip recap here.

If you follow BDS you've likely seen us talking about Project RangerX in the past, This 2019 Ford Ranger was one that we build up in 5 short weeks back in 2018 to debut in Ford's Booth for the 2018 SEMA Show. You can learn all about this build, the specs and how it came together by clicking here. 

If you're still reading this rather than taking a hard left into the build history the most recent adventure for RangerX was a Fall color tour around our home state of Michigan. After a quick once over in Michigan this truck made it up to the Silver Lake Sand Dunes to tackle the terrain. From there, we headed up to the Tunnel of Trees, over the Mackinac Bridge, and into the UP (Upper Peninsula) for some trail riding.

RangerX provides a comfortable and quiet ride when on road, and a performance-based experience when off road. We enjoyed having this rig along for the trip and we look forward to the next adventure we get to have with it. For more on this most recent [Off] Road-Trip Adventure click here.
