BDS & Fox Make A High Sierra

The GMC Sierra 1500 is the quintessential pickup. But every basic truck has the ability to be so much more with a few tweaks here and there. For example, we recently took a dirt-basic 4.8L V-8 half-ton regular cab short bed in a color very close to dirt-brown and transformed it from dirt-boring to a solid rock star.

The upgrades were simple and done at Pacific Fabrication in a long day. First was the new 6-inch lift kit from BDS Suspension. This was accessorized with remote-reservoir coilover shocks from Fox Racing Shox, allowing for a finely tuned ride. The added elevation offered clearance for a set of 35-inch Mickey Thompson rubber on new rims. Lift, shocks, tires, wheels . . . and by the end of the day a boring pickup boasted ground clearance, ride quality, and traction that could only be dreamt of before.
