    It has a Cognito 4-6" lift set at 5" now with Cognito upper control arms and bilstein 5100's. 2.5" block in the back.

    Duramax/Allison. I have RDL boost tube and intake bridge coming, Fleece performance Cheetah 68mm turbo sitting in the shop and a 3" downpipe as well. Going to run a 4 or 5" electric cutout so I can have quiet exhaust and loud as well. :laugh: I am planning on getting the trans built before the season gets busy again but the truck only has 22k miles on it. When I swap the turbo I'll be doing a full EGR delete, 3" boost tube and intake bridge, EFILive tuning with the 5 position switch- boost, egt, and drive pressure gauges, PCV reroute and a couple other things.

    I will do manifolds and up pipes eventually but for now the stock ones will be fine.


    They only have 10k miles on them now but are wearing awesome in my opinion for a truck that weighs 7500-7800 pounds easily. Should get at least 45k out of them.

    My Trail Grapplers are too new to gauge the wear rate, but I know they aren't near the tires that my Toyo M/Ts were. Handling, noise, ride...it's not even close. Toyo just didn't have the size that wanted to go with in their M/T line.

    Nice find, Advanced! Truck looks sweet...:cool2:

    what year is that truck, advanced?

    I love just everything about my nitto's except for cleaning is a pain in the ass(all that sidewall tread!) and of course the wear sucks.. But next time around I am going with something a little less aggressive.

    It's an 07 classic. I don't like the newer body style trucks... or the emissions.
