Kelly Fromm is no stranger to project vehicles. Over the years he has built several highly regarded cars and trucks that carry the theme of military appreciation. Kelly, now retired from the US Army spent several years serving this country and has taken a lead to help out and give back to our military veterans. He began the Rev-It-Up for Wounded Warriors Memorial Tour, a rolling tribute to those that have served in our armed forces. The tour raises awareness, support and money for veterans and their families as Kelly tours the country attending events. BDS has teamed up Kelly on now his last 3 promotional builds to make sure his tow rigs have the aggressive looks, capability and performance to match his ultra high-performance tribute Camaro and C7 Stingray Corvette that are in tow behind it. His first 2 trucks, the Fallen Warrior and the Freedom Fighter, have served valiantly over the past few years, but it had come time for Kelly to have a new hauler to lead the way on his cross country tour, Kelly’s a GM man and opted for the 2015 GMC Denali 3500HD 4wd Duramax Dually as soon as it hit the dealer lot to transform into a tribute truck to honor our troops. And with that project High Honor was born. Kelly wanted this build to be more personal so he reached out to his following on social media to help pick components, color scheme and get their feedback as the build went along.
Starting with the wrap, this dually is running a 3M 1080 digital camo wrap with UV graphics to further honor the troops when the light hits them just right. Up front a Royalty Core RX-3 grille was swapped in place of the Denali chrome unit that feature a pair of OffRoad LedBars. The stock projection headlights were retained while the bumper was swapped for a Iron Cross heavy duty unit which hold an assortment of LED lights and surveillance cameras. Bushwacker pocketstyle flares provide additional tire coverage for the 35×12.50×22 Toyo M/Ts mounted up on 22” Fuel Full Blown wheels. To provide clearance for the larger meats, a BDS 6.5” High Clearance System was installed along with Fox 2.0 shocks at each corner. Up top a Rackworks storage rack was mounted holding (4) 50” LED lightbars and even more surveillance cameras. Iron Cross HD steps make accessing the cab and bed easier. The bed features a pair of Diamond Performance stacks, TransferFlow fuel cell, CargoGlide bedslide 1500 and a Truck Covers USA bed cover. Out back the truck has a custom set of High Honor mudflaps, and a Iron Cross bumper with more LEDs and cameras wired up.

Inside the cockpit Kelly has a plethora of switches, gauges and monitors. The factory stereo/navigation his supplemented by a CB radio, police scanner, iPad and 17” Accele monitor. From controlling lights and monitoring engine vitals to 360 degree video recording this GMC is a mobile command center.
