Jaime Avalos's Truck Next Door

Santa Ana, Calif.

December 2016 Duramax, Feature My Truck, Feature DT Staff

My 2011 Chevrolet Silverado LTZ 3500 HD has a Cognito 7-9-inch lift kit powder-coated metallic blue. I'm running 37x13.50/24 Toyos on Alcoa wheels. The interior is pretty much stock besides a sound system that consists of an Alpine 8-inch Double Din head unit with a 2500-watt Hifonics amp for two eight-inch DD subs and one Hifonics amp for Alpine Type R mid and high door speakers. The windows on the truck have been tinted with limo tint all around. The engine has not been modified; it’s just running a tune from Ridge Runner Diesel and a downpipe-back exhaust from Jamo Performance and an S&B cold air intake exhaust. The rear of the truck has custom-made traction bars that my brother and I built out of 1 3/4-inch round tubing, then powder coated metallic blue. It also has AMP Research steps. Don't really have many plans for future modifications, but if I do get the chance, it would be metallic ghost flames and some pin striping on the tailgate. The truck is mostly used as a daily driver but I also use it to tow the toy hauler out to Glamis and to go out to the river in Laughlin.

This small population town is the headquarters for fusion bumpers, a custom bumper manufacturer for nearly 15 years...
