1988 was a great time to be a Chevy fan with the release of the new “Heartbeat of America” fleetside pick-up truck. Trucks were starting to become one of the most popular automobiles on the road and Chevy was in the thick of it with a brand-new release. Simultaneously, the war in the Monster Truck world revolved around a heated rivalry featuring the two best names in the business for the first ever points championship. If you were a fan in this era, the 1988 body style provided new hope and optimism.
JConcepts is on top of the best monster truck body styles in the business with the release of the 1988 Chevy Silverado. The 1988 styling is very clean, updated, refined and didn’t display the boxy looks from the early 80’s. The fleetside design is spot-on featuring slight curvature to the main shape, new headlights, grille treatment and form-fitting wheel wells. The slight flare to the tire openings give just a little wrinkle to the bed-sides and front fenders to accommodate different sized tires for maximum versatility.
The JConcepts body includes a decal sheet that makes detailing out the headlights, taillights and grille a breeze while window mask allows the user to quickly get the body into paint. Also included is a Racerback which fits the 88 perfectly to recreate trucks all the way into the early 1990’s. The standard cab body has an 11” wheelbase and fits retro and race monster trucks as a drop-on giving the all important clearance and functionality.
