Also included are a specially designed Borla exhaust system, highlighted by performance tips, custom Earnhardt No. 88 badges and a 3D tilted graphic that adorns the package's unique black tailgate decal.
"I had a lot of fun working on this with Hendrick Motorsports," Earnhardt said. "I've always owned Chevy trucks, and for me, tricking them out is a large part of the fun of owning one."
Earnhardt's first truck was an S10, which he drove back and forth from his home in Mooresville, North Carolina, while working as a service technician at a local Chevrolet dealership.
"I enjoy customizing vehicles and putting the right pieces together to create a unique look, and I'm really proud of how this one turned out," he said. "I hope the fans love it as much as I do."
