Badass Chevy Trucks in the Great Outdoors

Chevrolet Silverado High Country

Whether chilling on frozen lakes or cruising on the beach, these badass Chevy trucks from Reddit know how to play outside.

We certainly know how hard our Chevy trucks work. Some are on the farm, hauling hay bales and horse trailers to and fro. A few are on the construction site, their dump beds filled with dirt and rock from the excavator. Others are at the shop, picking up and dropping off parts and such for all the big projects.

But what do our trucks do when the working day is done? Well, they can play as hard as they work, like these eight badass Chevy trucks we found on Reddit the other day, all having the greatest time in the great outdoors.

Let’s start with the Silverado High Country above. Owned by gooselawyer, this crew cab Chevy is literally chilling on the ice with an ice fishing trailer at the rear. Does it get any cooler than this?

Chevrolet Avalanche in Utah

It sure can, like this Avalanche owned by JasonsBoredAgain, who took his white ride out to St. George, Utah near the Arizona-Nevada-Utah tri-state border. No worries about avalanches here, just the potential dust storm from the Mojave Desert.

First-Gen Chevrolet Colorado in the Mountains

Around four hours to the southwest of St. George, surfing209 took his 2010 Colorado out to Death Valley “for a weekend of wheeling.” He purchased his new-to-him ride a couple of months ago with only 14,000 miles on the odometer, and plans to add skid plates ASAP to keep the underside protected during future adventures.

Second-Gen Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 on the Beach

Over on the other side of the country, YouveGotMail236 was enjoying the surf and sand at New Smyrna Beach, Florida in his new second-gen, diesel-powered Colorado ZR2. He says he takes it out to the sand, dirt, and mud every weekend, all the while getting 20 mpg from the diesel turbo-four.

Second-Gen Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 in the Woods

Another second-gen Colorado ZR2, a different setting. This example, owned by maudsquad, is enjoying the muddy trails of its home away from home, the woods. He says if he could start again, though, he’d go for the lowest trim and build upon that, as he uses the truck as his daily work machine away from the off-road fun.

2010 Chevrolet Silverado in the Snowy Woods

Somewhere in New York, Legostar4 is frolicking in the snowy woods with his 2010 Silverado Z71, which has a 2-inch levelling kit but is otherwise stock (as far as we know). He says he ordered the kit from Amazon, and spent an hour with some basic tools to get the ride he wanted from his silver steed.

2001 Chevrolet Silverado Z71 1500 in the Snow

Over to the Pacific Northwest, JakesInSpace is having a blast in his 2001 Silverado Z71 1500, making the most of the snow in the tiny former railroad town of Skykomish, Washington, deep in the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest. He says having four-wheel drive and mud terrain tires make all the difference in traversing this winter wonderland.

2010 Chevrolet Silverado in the Canadian Snow

Finally, somewhere over the border in British Columbia, Canada, ollie warner23 poses his 2010 Silverado on the slushy road amid the towering mountains and lonely pine trees. This black beauty looks majestic covered in snow, ready to go for a journey of a lifetime.
