trail master 6" lift

Got my suspension installed and was able to play with my truck this weekend. Did some light fourwheeling, and ran back and forth between Phoenix and Flagstaff (Kid's soccer). The bigger tires ate some of the gas mileage I was getting. On the highway not a big drop, but in town looks like I'll be around 15mpg.



Wheels are 20" BMF and tires are 37" x 12.50.

Thank you... and I agree. This is one of our SEMA vehicles so it will be undergoing a lot of mods in the next few weeks. We do make steps (OR-Fab) so I'll have those put on this week in a wrinkle black finish, and we are in the process of fabing up a light rack, tire carrier, and bumpers.

It is on the market F4734SSV. It's a radius arm kit with our SSV gas shocks, you should be able to find it at most shops for around $1650.

Fuel mileage will improve when the engine is broken in. If this new diesel is like every other diesel ever made, it should be good for about 10%.

Updated Photo

I promised back in October to post additional pictures of this SEMA build truck. I was hesitant to post additional pictures until we became a sponsor. Here's the truck as it sit's today.


I did as many of you suggested and stuck with Black accessories. The rack and steps are part one of our sister companies makes.
