Zachery Gadwaw's Truck Next Door

Killeen, Texas

March 2017 Duramax, Trucks Next Door, Feature DT Staff

My truck is a unique, one-of-a-kind Silverado with a McNeil racing Baja kit, Fabtech lift and a bullet proof 6.6L Duramax from Top Frog diesel. The truck handles great on the road, at the pulls, sand drags and quarter mile, as well as cross country/off-roading. And it still gets a solid 17 mpg highway! Modifications include:

  • ARP head studs
  • main studs and cross bolts
  • stage 2 Garret turbo
  • upgraded injector tips
  • Mishimoto radiator, intercooler, as well as hot and cold side CAC tubes and boots
  • AirDog II 165 fuel pump
  • PPE fuel race plugs and ported fuel rails
  • aFe turbo inlet
  • LB7 up pipe
  • welded Y-bridge
  • EFILive
  • traction bars from Longhorn Fab Shop
  • upgraded torque converter with a Transgo JR shift kit
  • MBRP exhaust with RBP tip 
  • Cognito brace kit
  • Rare Parts idler/pitman arms
  • custom heim joint tie rods 

One thing I want to add at some point is a Stage 5 Suncoast Allison transmission with billet input/output shafts. This truck is a definite powerhouse, not to be underestimated by its size, turns heads everywhere, and is reliable to go almost anywhere and pull anything.
