It’s known simply as ”Big Red.”
Over the past 12 months the magazine’s staff, with installation support from Truck Supply & Outfitters in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, and dozens of aftermarket manufacturers, have turned a plain Jane 2008 GMC Sierra Crew Cab Dually 4×4 into a remarkable work truck.
As ProPickup editor Bruce Smith said at the outset of the project, “Pulling power, load-carrying capability, passenger comfort, versatility and dependability wrapped up in a stylish package makes for a great combination when it comes to a pickup working in the construction, aggregates, landscaping and contracting trades.”
“A pickup becomes even more desirable when it has a fully functioning service body that can be transferred from truck to truck—or left on the jobsite or in the shop—when called upon to serve as a tow vehicle or other work/recreational needs. That’s Big Red.”
Now the truck is done and it has one more tour stop before being given away in a sweepstakes drawing: The truck will be on display in the ProPickup booth (#5739) at the 2013 NTEA Work Truck Show in Indianapolis, March 5-8.
Sweepstakes registrations are open until April 1. Registration requires nothing more than going to the Big Red Sweepstakes site filling in the entry form.
