Duramax H2 with a custom 2 tone paint job

Check out this Duramax H2 with a custom 2 tone paint job. It was actually one of the first flat paint jobs seen on a show truck and was debuted at the 2005 SEMA show. The base color is flat black with a flat clear with all the lower trim panels smoothed and painted gloss black. The custom forged billet aluminum 24″ rims are insane and came in about 45 minutes prior to the truck being loaded for SEMA. Talk about cutting it close! The H2 was converted to a Duramax Diesel engine with the Alison 5 speed transmission for the ultimate in performance, fuel economy, longevity and drive ability.

In Control (Video)

Take a look inside our Tactical Off Road Course. It is geared up for the US Special Forces. During the course we emphasize maintaining control of the vehicle at all times. Here the students have the engine powered up while manipulating the brakes to control their decent. The terrain on this obstacle is very loose, soft and moving sand combined with a 55 to 60 degree slope. By keeping the engine powered up, and applying various levels of brake pressure, our goal is to keep all 4 wheels rolling. Remember, keep driving! Don’t let the vehicle drive you! (Video Below)
