Chris has spent years in the lifted truck industry, running the popular “Eight Lug Mafia” Instagram page. In late-2015, Chris bought his first “new” vehicle, a GMC Sierra 2500 Denali HD.

“This was the first truck I had ever bought brand new off the lot, and I had every intention to modify it with my own personal touch,” he admits. Little did he know, what started out as a simple bolt-on 10” lift kit would lead into an elaborate 22” custom 4-link kit with the works!

But as soon as he started the build, Chris immediately ran into a few challenges with the independent front suspension. Frustrated with the continuous parts failure, Chris looked to the industry for help. A simple suggestion was made, and a magical phone call to Marcio Leal at TCS Suspension in February of 2016 got the build back on the right path. That one call resulted in Chris’ truck being shipped to Modesto, California, for what would end up as a custom-built rigvt with more than 600-man hours, countless design time and many sleepless nights put into building it.
