SEMA Trucks: Freedom Fighter turned Big Thug
Each year the SEMA Show is flooded with amazing automobiles, lifted trucks, lower street rods, resto-mod classics and late model monsters all in the name of automotive customization. There’s something for everyone’s taste from the insane over-the-top to capable daily drivers. BDS Suspension attends this annual show out in Las Vegas and continues to make quite the statement with show vehicles scattered throughout the show grounds on display in exhibitor booths and featured vehicle spots.
Several years ago we got hooked up with Kelly Fromm, a retired US veteran with an eye for building some amazing rides. Kelly runs the Rev-It-Up for Wounded Warriors Memorial Tour, a mobile memorial raising awareness and funds for wounded veterans. The tour has featured several vehicles from a 700+ hp Camaro (Veteran 1) and custom widebody ZL1 Camaro, to a ’10 Silverado (Fallen Warrior) and ’12 Chevy Dually (Freedom Fighter) tow rig all decked out with the lasted accessories and far-from-bashful patriotic graphics. With hundreds of thousands of dollars raised for wounded veterans, Kelly’s efforts are making a difference for disabled veterans coming back from oversees. Recently, however, a very unpatriotic and malicious act occurred. Kelly’s dually was vandalized, the graphics keyed and the truck damaged before its scheduled stop at the 2013 SEMA Show. With the show just around the corner, Kelly pulled the vinyl, fixed the body and opted for a fresh coat of cyber gray paint for a stealthy appearance. With the new look, Freedom Fighter became known as Big Thug.
Up front an Iron Cross bumper was installed for added protection. Rigid LEDs and a Warn winch were then installed to improve its recovery and visibility. The grill was swapped out for the RX3 model from RBP. Headlights were converted to Anzo USA projection units and up top a 50” LED light bar was installed. To improve the ground clearance a BDS 6.5” high clearance lift was installed along with Fox 2.0 shocks giving plenty of room to clear 35×12.50×22 Toyo M/Ts mounted up on 22 American Force Independence wheels. Iron Cross steps offer increased protection and make accessing the cab a bit easier. Out back an ARE “Z Series” cap was installed to add plenty of dry storage space and a CargoGlide rack system. Firestone airbags help keep the truck level when towing/hauling heavy loads. Under the hood the stock 6.6L Duramax was given some extra attention from an AEM cold air intake, Edge Products Evolution CTS tuner, and a custom exhaust system. Inside the cab features Alga leather wrapped seats, a custom 3500-watt MTX stereo system and custom gauges to monitor the trucks vitals.
With the remodel, Big Thug continues to be Kelly’s primary tow rig hitting up events around the country for an amazing cause. We wish him the best and looking forward to a continuing our partnership in the future.
