Used and built primarily as a shuttle vehicle to and from the local gentlemen’s club or car show, this exquisite Esco is much more than just an SUV on rims. Upon closer analysis, the intricate additions give proof to the extensive hours spent in the bay and the booth. Completely converting the interior to black, adding a STRUT Grille package and squattin’ the 5,500-pound truck on 28-inch Forgiatos are just some of the refinements that set this Escalade apart in the game. As to the overall theme of his ride, owner Jeff explains, “I don’t like them sitting high or that loud color shit. When I pull up somewhere, I feel like a celebrity, all eyes on me. It’s a great feeling.”
