With all the talk of the blow-through sub enclosure, we can't ignore the audio in Turner's Sierra. Ultimate Electronics in Glendale installed and wired the audio system, starting with the Panasonic double-DIN head unit in the dash. Diamond Audio DG Series components were mounted in the custom door panels, and also under the tonneau cover, on either side of the 32-inch LCD that's mounted on actuators in the carpeted bed. Additional monitors were mounted in the front visors, front seat headrests, and center console. Finally, for the bass, the subwoofer enclosure was built in the bed and holds four 12-inch D6-series Diamond subs. It's ported into the cab between the remaining two rear seats and is finished to the same standard as the exterior.
No custom truck is complete on a stock suspension, so Desert Rat, also in Phoenix, was tasked with installing the RCD 6-inch suspension lift that gives the Sierra room for 35-inch Nitto Terra Grapplers. The 20-inch MB Motoring Yuma wheels are a new addition from Insane Kustoms, in Phoenix, that completely changed the look of the truck and complemented the amazing paint. With the extra mass to move around, Turner decided to give the 5.3L V-8 more attention than usual. A Volant intake, MagnaFlow dual exhaust, and Superchips programmer are responsible for a lot of the added power, but the real secret is a new cam that really woke the engine up.
Turner already has plans to take another direction with his truck, and has the rendering to prove it. It would be a shame to change the paint, so the foundation will stay. Hopefully, we'll be bringing you the update when it's sporting the new look.
Three Diamond amplifiers power the four subs and eight components.
Trends have come and gone, but a great candy paintjob has never gone out of style.
