Turner Dowling wanted a fast truck—so he bought a diesel: an '08 GMC Sierra 2500HD to be exact. But he wanted it to be a bit faster, so he installed a bunch of speed parts. Before we get to that, however, we should mention that this is Turner's work truck. Turner and his dad run Predator Spearguns. The company makes and sells the most accurate, most dependable spearguns around.
Turner says he custom designs spearguns around each customer's needs, whether it's blue water or reef, or the use of a specific wood, a particular shape handle, shaft, or tip. Personal service and custom craftsmanship leads to satisfaction when you're looking for the speargun of your dreams.

Now, back to the truck. In order to get the ride of his dreams, Turner installed an MBRP exhaust stack kit and two 6-inch Aussie stacks. A Banks cold-air intake ensures lots of fresh air. The EFILive tune by Rob Coddens of Idaho Rob provided even more power.
The truck was leveled with a 1-inch block, and then 17-inch Ultra wheels were installed, along with 285/75-17 Nitto tires. A Husky box holds any gear that needs protecting, and a B&W drop hitch allows for towing toys and boats, which Turner does frequently.

Turner admits to using the truck a lot more for personal enjoyment, but adding the company logo to the truck gets him a little more attention and most likely some business to go along with it.
