Thanks megactdman! I have thought about swapping out the intake horn and doing a grid heater relocate while I'm at it. Those parts are on my list they just aren't something I've got around to yet. I don't see them is a super critical item for what I need out of the truck so I haven't bothered with them yet.

Default BD Diesel Sponsorship - 2016-11-25
I'm stoked to announce that I've been sponsored by BD Diesel Performance on the 2017 BD Race Team as a show truck.

Back in September a few buddies and I entered our trucks in the show and shine at BD Diesel's fall dyno day here in town. Needless to say it was probably the nicest line up of trucks that have ever been in their show and shine so we got some good attention. The president of BD end up coming out to talk to us all and loved our builds and personally asked us to apply for the 2017 team.



I'm definitely excited to be backed by such a big name in the diesel industry and rep their products both online and in shows. Great having them right in my hometown as well as it makes it very easy to work with them on promo stuff and on getting products. This definitely opens up some new doors for the build this year. I think it's going to be time for some go fast parts.
One item BD just released at SEMA that I'm very interesed in is their HE351VE Screamer turbo. It's a VGT that retains the factory exhaust brake function but with an upgrade compressor wheel, turbine, and actuator system. They've stated that with supporting mods it can produce up to 690 whp. Along with that I may install a new exhaust manifold, intake horn, and grid heater relocate to really get the air flowing.



I still have to finalize a few details with BD about the deal but once that happens I'll have a better idea of exactly what I'll do build wise this year.

If you're interested in the turbo check out - https://www.dieselperformance.com/sh...016-6-7l-18213. Or for anything else they sell check out their website at - https://www.dieselperformance.com/page/homepage.

Brandon, your truck is awesome. Something to be proud of for sure. Could you tell me where you got the drop hitch from, or if you just made it yourself? I've tried to see if I missed it any of the posts, but haven't seen anything.

Thanks for the feedback! I appreciate it!

I ordered it from Summit Racing. It's a Curt 17125 adjustable drop shank. Etrailer sells them as well. It comes as just the shank itself but any WD setup will bolt up to it. Then for a 2" ball I modified a ball mount that I had from a different adjustable drop hitch to match the bolt spacing of this drop shank and allow me to bolt it right up. That way I can easily swap back between a 2" and 2 5/16" ball when needed.

Default Tail Light Upgrade - 2017-1-19
I finally got around to doing a bit of a tail light upgrade on the truck. They've been on my list for quite a while and I've been going back and forth between OEM Sport LED's or a set of colormatched Recons. Unfortunately right now the Canadian dollar is so low that it doesn't make sense to have a set of Recons built so that was put on the backburner. But a set of OEM LED's popped up on my local Craigslist for a great deal the other day so I jumped on them. Ended up getting them (2016 OEM Sport LED's) with adapter harnesses for $350 CAD (~$260 USD). Definitely can't complain about that.

Very happy with how the look on the truck. They're so much better than the stock halogen style that I had both with the lights on and off. The only small issue I had is that the LED reverse lights from my old tail lights don't fit in the new ones. But that's no big deal; I'll just have to order a new set.

Before/after:





It definitely looks like a 2013 from the outside now to the guys who don't know the other small differences
