The SEMA show in Las Vegas is a great place to find some pretty stunning trucks. Chances are that if it’s on the show floor it’ll be something that will make your jaw drop.
This is definitely true in the case of Kelly Fromm and his 2015 GMC Denali 3500 which he named High Honor. The truck was built as a rolling tribute to the American Armed forces and helps showcase his Rev-it-up for Wounded Warriors organization that helps raise funds for various military charities. Unlike many of the trucks found on the floor of the convention center, High Honor is a working truck that takes Kelly to events for his organization and even tows his Corvette behind it.
The most obvious change to the truck is the all-over digicamo warp in shades of gray. The wrap sets the tone for the rest of the truck’s color scheme including the Bushwacker Pocket-Style fender flares that were wrapped in carbon fiber film to keep the low key look going. The digicamo wrap itself is a 3M 1080 wrap and something unique to High Honor is the embossed-looking decals that were applied under the final wrap, making them look embossed and ghostlike.
The grille is a custom piece from Royalty Core that sits atop an Iron Cross bumper with a matching one in the back. Iron Cross also provided side steps to make getting into the bigger than stock truck a little easier. Speaking of being a little bigger than normal, High Honor features a 6.5-inch lift from BDS Suspensions that includes shocks from Fox Racing. All that extra space made room for some big wheels, something that Fromm didn’t ignore. The wheels are Fuel Off Road Full Blown that’re wrapped in 35x12.5R22 Open Country M/Ts from Toyo Tires. Even the lug nuts are unique and come from V&V Concepts.
There’s an integrated BedSlide, a RackWorks roof rack, and even a mock .50 Cal machine gun mounted in the bed. To see better, Kelly added some lighting in the way of LED Offroad bars in the bumper and on the roof.
While looks are great, performance is where it’s at. The truck includes an upgraded exhaust system from Diamond Eye Performance Exhaust and an AFE Power Cold Air Intake to help on the other end.
There’s a Banks Power IQ to help monitor the engine as well as an Edge CTS Evolution Tuner to get some more power from the powerplant. With this extra power there’s a need for more fuel, which comes by way of a 61-gallon transfer flow fuel tank.
Another feature that sets High Honor apart from other trucks at the show is its interior. Since many trucks at SEMA are only seen from the outside, the interiors are rarely worked on. Since High Honor is a working truck, the interior was fully customized with a command center-style interior.
Along with the command center, the truck received interior modifications including a custom center console with a scanner and a video screen that shows multiple exterior cameras, a slot for an iPad, custom Roadwire leather seats, and even a custom leather headliner. All in all, it’s one pretty nice interior.
High Honor is a great example of what planning a custom truck from start to finish can look like and should show that a truck built for show can be used daily as a work vehicle, too.
