   There are a lot of lifted trucks cruising the streets and highways of California. Most of them are average height with big tires and have never seen any real offroading. There is no way to know if Danny Mojica from Bellflower, California plans to do any off-roading in this 2003 GMC Sierra 2500HD, but I wouldn't. The detail that has gone into this trucks suspension and paint are immaculate. Don't get me wrong, this truck could handle some serious off-road action but it was built to look really good on the streets and at shows.

   Danny dropped his GMC off at IMZZ Industries where Jim Iiams and his crew tore the trucks suspension apart for a major overhaul and upgrades. The truck was slated for a 15-inch CST suspension with custom IMZZ billet heimed steering kit and custom IMZZ traction bars. The leaf springs were replaced by Atlas springs and the shocks were all switched out for chrome Fox Shocks. Several parts were then sent out for chrome plating at La Habra Plating and other parts were powder coated at Central Powdercoat in Brea, California. To keep Danny's undercarriage looking as clean and custom as possible, the factory brake lines were replaced by much better looking steel braided brake lines. The wheels are 22x11-inch Zenetti wheels with 40x15.5R Toyo M/T Tires. The differential was also dressed up with a Mad Hytec cover.

   The truck remained at IMZZ for the body and paint work. The paint crew decided to design a custom one-off paint scheme for the Sierra that would grab some serious attention. They used House of Kolor Kandy colors and Glausurit clearcoat by BASF after the trucks tailgate handle was shaved for a smoother rear end. The door handle buckets were upgraded with new handles from Grippin' Billet.

  After the bulk of the truck was finished, it was taken to California Auto Upholstery for tan leather and suede that covers the inside of Danny's ride. The stereo is a Kenwood 911 DVD player with Boston Acoustic components and Amplifiers. In the back is a custom built subwoofer box by IMZZ with JL Audio subwoofers for some deep, pounding bass. The rear passengers in the GMC get entertained by two Savv headrest monitors.

   This is no slouch in the power department either. Gibson headers and an AFE Intake got Danny's truck breathing easier as well as the custom stainless exhaust built at IMZZ. A PPE Xcelleration power tuner makes for a huge performance improvement and 4:88 gears with Eaton E-Locker gives him traction should he decide to take this beauty into the dirt.
