Bowtie Builds by SDHQ

Untitled-1

The 2016 Chevy Silverado is a great looking, capable truck and we have many customers who are looking to upgrade their off-road capabilities but maintain a smooth factory ride. For these recent builds we went with Mazzulla Mid Travel suspension component upgrades, coupled with King Shocks. Mazzulla kits are made in the USA, offer easy bolt on performance and quality craftsmanship. Both trucks got strengthened boxed upper control arms and build 1 (2wd) also got a spindle lift, which allows for more lift without adding a lot of preload to the coil over. Speaking of coil over, the King 3.0 bolt on replacement shocks offer unparalleled performance, dampening and increase in ride quality. Each truck also got upgraded King Shocks to beef up the rear suspension. Then our customers choose different wheel & tire options to give both trucks a customized finish. Both turned out great, but which do you like better? Build 1 or 2?

The Ultimate Tundra Build by SDHQ

SDHQ-Slide
Over the years we have pushed the limits when it comes to taking the stock manufacturers platform and turning it into a truly off-road capable machine. This build was no different, no detail was over looked, no corners were cut. We set out to push even our own standards and we think this is our biggest baddest Tundra build yet! This build was no different, no detail was over looked, no corners were cut. We set out to push even our own standards and we think this is our biggest, baddest Tundra build yet! With this build we wanted to see just how much performance we could pull out of this truck, how much more functional  we could make it, and just how smooth we could make the ride. It’s no secret that here at SDHQ we think the Toyota Tundra is an exceptional starting platform to upgrade started with a 2015 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro, with a standard 6.5 bed. In typical SDHQ style we took a brand new truck cut it up and shortened the stock bed to a 5.5 to shorten the wheelbase. Then we created the perfect amalgam of high quality off-road products, from some of the best manufacturers from the industry and added our own custom touches along the way. Check out the full details of the build below see how you can bring the truck of your dreams to life.
Front Suspension
1T4A8212 I
First and foremost we start with suspension. It doesn’t matter how shiny and good looking a truck is if it can’t preform. We decided to go with a Camburg Long travel front end that maintained 4wd with Icon coil over and secondary bypass shocks, as well as Fox bump shocks. Instead of taking the BFH to the front inner fenders we cut them out and raised them up to allow for uninhibited full bump of the 37″ tires.

Rear Suspension

For the Rear Suspension we did a sprung under kit with, Deaver springs, and Fox 5 tube bypass shocks with quick adjusters and Fox 2.5 bumps. A SDHQ custom bed cage was made for optimal shock mounting. We were going for a clean finished look so, so aluminum panels were made to conceal the shocks and even hid the water methanol tank in the drivers side enclosure. This low profile design and an SDHQ universal mount accommodated the 37″ spare tire easily.

To add form and function we opted for our own SDHQ front & rear fiberglass. A custom SDHQ front & rear bumper offers optimal clearance and not mention style. When it comes to off-road lighting we take it pretty seriously that why we added about as many Baja Design lights as we possibly could. This build is truly a marriage of style and function.

Performance and Drivetrain

 1T4A8538
With added capabilities of the suspension we wanted to throw some more power at it, more power means more fun! We put on a TRD Super Charger, 4.88 gears to make up for larger tires, Doug Thorley long tube headers, and a Unichip tuner to maximize safe power at full throttle. To help keep the inlet temps nice and cool and squeeze some extra ponies out we added the AEM water methanol injection.

Wheels and Tires

1T4A8369

With a completely upgraded suspension and added power we knew we needed a wheel and tire combo that could handle the roughest of terrains and conditions. We chose to go with Method Standard Race Wheels that we converted into beadlocks, and wrapped them with Toyo RT’s an off-road tire that has been tortured and tested all over the world. No chase truck or prerunner is complete without communications, so we used PCI Race Radios equipment with a super clean install in the center console, no messy wires cluttering up the cab.

Our customer came to us with a stock 2015 Tundra and said he wanted  something different than the same old cookie cutter lift, wheel tire package you could get anywhere else.  He said he wanted a truly off-road capable pre-runner that would maintain its street manners and look good while doing both. We knew exactly what to do. Here is the build breakdown. For any questions about any of the products from this build, give us a call! 480-633-2929

SDHQ Approved Recovery Gear

recovery

SDHQ Carries a huge selection of recovery gear and products to get you out of sticky situations. Over the years we put hundreds of different types of recovery products to the test in real life applications and not all make the cut. Here are some of our favorite recovery products!

 fact55
 Factor 55 products utilize a  CLOSED SYSTEM WINCHING™ is a winching technique using rigging comprised entirely of closed link hardware. The non-closable opening of common winch hooks prevent hooks from qualifying as secure closed links.  Poorly constructed sheet metal safety latches of hooks do not qualify as a secure means to contain loads and are prone to failure, especially during momentary slack conditions where winch loads often shift and apply high forces to these weak non-structural latches.  Hooks often come loose during vehicle recovery operations due to hook safety latch failures.

We’ve come a long way from that 600 sq ft single bay shop! By staying true to those simple early principals we have grown as an international leader in the off-road community.
