Chevy Silverado 2500HD First Responder Tribute Truck Honors Brave Heroes

This Chevrolet Silverado First Responder’s Truck was created in memory of the events that happened on September 11, 2001.

September 11 marks a decade and a half since the tragic events changed the nation forever. Kicker Performance Audio was humbled in its inclusion on a custom Chevrolet truck inspired by the 9/11 heroes and first responders. Donated and funded by General Motors, the 2011 Chevy was unveiled at Ground Zero.

“It was an absolute privilege for Kicker to be involved in this tribute package,” Kicker global trainer John Myers said. “We’re an American audio company, headquartered in the heart of the U.S., so we wanted to provide this jaw-dropping truck with an audio system that matched its heartfelt paint job which commemorates those who risked their lives for this nation.”

The Silverado 2500HD crew cab was airbrushed by Mickey Harris. On the truck body, Harris painted memorable depictions of first responders in action as well as symbols of American freedom. A 13 ½ foot reverse tonneau cover displays the names of more than 400 first responders. “I love my nation and the first responders deserve to be recognized as the brave heroes that they are.”


We sometimes take the first responders for granted and do not truly appreciate the sacrifice they are called to make. Part of the reason may be because whenever the call goes out the first responders are always there ready to serve and put themselves in harms way to help others. Next time you have the opportunity take a moment to say thank you to a fire fighter, police officer, paramedic or soldier. In times of tragedy, chaos and danger first responders are always there to rescue, protect, heal and serve.
