of the truck is of the ut­most im­por­tance to both Mc­gaughty and Dyer, and this kit ac­com­plishes its smooth ride and fac­to­ry­like fit­ment by keep­ing as many of the OEM spec­i­fi­ca­tions—like driv­e­line, brake ca­bles, and so on—as pos­si­ble.

SEMA Crunch

Since so much time and en­ergy was put into the Mc­gaughy’s sus­pen­sion to get this kit just right, it ar­rived to Dyer at the very last minute. It was then shipped off to Pris­matic Pow­der Coat­ing, which was the last ma­jor ob­sta­cle to mak­ing the SEMA dead­line. Dyer picked up the pow­der­coated sus­pen­sion parts less than a week be­fore he needed to be on the road headed to Vegas.

Dyer says, “No mat­ter how hard you plan, it’s al­ways some­thing, mostly small, but just enough to ball things up.” Build­ing topqual­ity show trucks on such a tight time­line, and on a just-re­leased new ve­hi­cle, is al­ways a se­ri­ous chal­lenge. Pow­der­coat­ing was the big holdup on this build, but Dyer man­aged to get the truck all put to­gether and make the show on time.
