Owned by Eric Gosselin, ECD specializes in vehicle wrap designs and installation. Given he works on some of the best builds around, Eric is no stranger to his own SEMA-worthy vehicles (three in total). For the 2017 SEMA Show, Eric showcased his 2015 Silverado 2500HD named “Desert Max.”

“The camouflage theme was an up-and-coming trend in the clothing industry, but then I saw a pair of Jordan 5 Retros accented with red. I knew at that point I wanted to mirror my truck after that design,” he explains. The vision was set in stone and Eric shipped his truck to his friends at Eighty80 in Bluffdale, Utah, for the build.

While there, the Silverado was given a full makeover, complete with interior, suspension, audio, and the wrap in a matter of weeks. “TCS Suspension graciously overnighted us parts to help get this build finished in time,” Eric adds. The custom 4-link with 20” lift suspension was an intricate build complete with quite a few mods to get that perfect stance.
