Jarvis Smith: 2007 Chevrolet Trailblazer SS

Jarvis Smith often found himself facing the same problem when searching for a car to be both his daily driver and a platform for his build. “Being 6'5" tall, I didn't have many choices to find a fast car I can fit in comfortably," writes Smith. But after finding the 2007 Chevrolet Trailblazer SS, that problem has since become a thing of the past. Smith has taken the SS model to new levels with a LS2 6.0L engine and Powerhaus Performance tune, Air Lift wireless bags, HART brakes and an updated multimedia system. “How many SUVs do you know have a Corvette engine in them?" Smith asks "I only know one!” There’s a little more planned for the Trailblazer as well, with additional modifications to include a new engine, Magnuson supercharger, Rob Style Level 4 cams, Scott's Cowl hood, a completed coilover suspension, and rear audio upgrades.
