Big Red standing tall early in the build
Truck Supply & Outfitters have completed the major upgrades on Big Red.
They have put in the Cognito lift, Fab Fours HD bumper and Mile Marker SEC15 15,000-pound electric winch, and upfitted the Duramax with a number of BD DIesel and AEM performance parts.
We’ve had the 10-lug American Force wheels and 35×12.50R22 Toyo Open Country M/Ts balanced and the front end aligned.
Now they have a lot of details to handle, from running wiring in the service body to setting up the stoarage compartments to installing gauges and Transfer Flow’s 56-gallon fuel tank in the truck.
We still have AMP Research PowerSteps and steps to install, Hypertech’s programmer to plug in, along with a number of other upgrades we’ll cover as the build moves along.
The Vanair Air N Arc 150 all-in-one power system makes what we have now a true service vehicle. But the addition of other hand tools and accessories will really round this truck out.
Of course, with all the more exposed areas of the servcie body and truck protected with Line-X Extra, Big Red should be good to go to any jobsite when we get our Mobil Delvac-sponsored GMC 3500HD complete in the next couple months.
(Oh, it’ll be on display at the ProPickup Truck Expo in Dallas Aug. 23-25…in case you want to see it in person!)
