You could say that Eric Gosselin’s 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD is out of this world and you’d be right! As the owner of ECD Customs - a wrap company in Canada - he knows a thing or two on how to make a ride stand out from the crowd, which is exactly why he wanted to build this cosmos-inspired rig.
With its eye-catching galaxy and star wrap that garners immediate attention, Gosselin calls his creation “Galaxymax”- a play between its theme and Duramax, which has taken social media by storm using the hashtag “Galaxymax.” “This was strictly built as a marketing project to showcase our wrap!” he exclaims. “The main focus was to make an Internet famous truck with a trendsetting theme. We’ve sponsored a few wraps in the past for SEMA builds and was I instantly hooked and wanted to start building my own trucks.”
To create his second SEMA build, he enlisted the help of Full Flex Customs in Texas and drove the truck all the way down South to get it all started. Since the galaxy wrap was the truck’s main focus, every part and mod had to complement its stellar exterior. “We put lots of time and details into the design,” Gosselin describes. “The colors came out great on the Avery vinyl and it was finished off with a perfect install by Chuck Courtois. We have a reputation of being a trendsetting company when it comes to wrapping and designing vehicles so it was a challenge to come up with something new and different, but yet still accepted by those who prefer more traditional looks.”
But the most unique mod was the custom lift, Gosselin mentions. A lot of time and thought went into figuring out how to do the front end coilovers, while still keeping the IFS suspension. That’s when Mike at Full Flex came up with the 3-link design in the rear. Other highlights include the details in the headlights and mirrors by plainANsimple by design and the 24x16 American Force multi-piece wheels wrapped in 40” Toyo Open Country tires.
Of course, some people thought the truck was a bit over the top when it was first unveiled, but for the most part, Gosselin says people loved it. In fact, before it was showcased at last year’s SEMA Show, a few photos were leaked online and they went viral within a few hours. “It was shared countless times and seen by millions of online followers on multiple truck pages,” he notes.
The truck was mainly built for the SEMA Show to showcase ECD Customs’ wraps and now it’s traveling the U.S. and Canada. “We went to California, back to Texas for a few events then drove it to Florida and now we are doing all the Ontario shows in Canada!” Gosselin details. “My dream was to drive it to the west coast and on then all the way to the east coast! I was very blessed to be able to accomplish all of that with the truck without having any issues! It was a great build by a great team of people and I couldn’t be happier with the outcome.”
