500 HP BEAST! IRONHIDE

When you live in a state with unpredictable weather and rough terrain in the mountains, you need a vehicle that will not leave you stranded on the side of the road. Tom, has just that vehicle. When we first saw Tom and his truck we just had to ask him about it. This is what he had to say. I've known Tom for well over 20 years and he has always had a great passion for cars which stems from his father's love for cars. Tom has owned many custom vehicles over the years including a Check Nova, Mustang, and a Chrysler 300 with massive 22" wheels. I am certain it won't end there. I see many more custom vehicles in the future added to his stable.


Tom: I have a 2020 GMC Sierra HD Denali nicknamed IRONHIDE, Engine: 6.6 Duramax Diesel with a 10 speed Allison Transmission. There is a 7" Rough Country Lift with 37x12.5 Yokohama Geolander M/T tires. Wheels are 20 x 10 Moto Metal Krakken. I also have a Banks Power Derringer Tuner with the Pedal Monster. The back is covered and protected by a BakFlip MX4 Tonneau cover.

Tom: This is my daily driver. I have always wanted a lifted truck and here is what I got. This is my first GMC and first diesel so new to having a truck like this has not disappointed me. Did a lot of research on these trucks and working at a GMC dealership helped out because I was able to see what new stuff they were adding. This truck stock comes with 450HP and 910 ft/lbs of torque, Adding the Banks Power put me over the 1000 ft/lbs of torque and over 500 HP. I also did a Adams Graphene Ceramic Coat to the whole truck to protect it longer. I Purchased the truck from Netdirect Auto Sales who also installed the lift.


Whats next for the truck?


Tom: I plan on adding a Banks Power Air box and Exhaust.
