Default Duramaxzak 2.6 pulling truck build

I thought I would share my build with you all. It's a 2002 GMC 2500hd regular cab long box. I have owned it for about 6 years and has always been more of a toy. I have been sled pulling in the work/stock class for 2 years and have did very well. So have now decided to move up and play with the big boys in the 2.6 class!!!

Thanks to all who have contributed the great wealth of info on DD!

You should put a limiter strap across that belows, or it will split... Did you use 10-11 gage SS or 16 gage?

It's 11ga 304 S/S, I have been thinking about putting a strap across the bellow. Sounds like you learned to do that from experience.
