In 2005 Banks decided to expand its dominance in the performance truck market with Sidewinder All-Terrain truck packages. Chevy Silverado Duramax diesel, Dodge Ram Cummins diesel, and Ford Power Stroke diesel versions of Banks Sidewinder All-Terrain trucks were decked out with all the performance goodness that Banks offered at the time including specialized suspension upgrades for each.
Each formula was tested and had dyno-verified horsepower and torque. Two of the truck builds (the Dodge Ram and Chevy Silverado) were showcased on TV shows Xtreme 4×4 and Trucks at the time, and to show the truck’s mettle Banks had all three vehicles join Hot Rod Magazine’s 2005 Power Tour which traveled through 5 states and 1,700 miles. Each truck had its own serial number and certificate of authenticity.
Banks offered its specific performance complete package as something that you could install yourself or on a brand-new truck straight from the dealer. Although only a handful of new turn-key Sidewinder All-Terrains was made, those trucks remain legendary.
