Clash of the Titan
With the main goals of building the Titan being to showcase the off-roadability of the vehicle and the newly designed and award-winning 6-inch suspension system, the team definitely hit its mark. From the beginning of the project, everyone involved knew that if the SEMA Best Engineered New Product for 2005 suspension system was going to be placed on the vehicle, the bar would be set high for all the other components, which meant that only the best could be used. The powerful V-8 powerplant, which produces an excess of 300 hp, was kept virtually stock, as was the majority of the drivetrain, with the exception of a few minor details that remain as top secret as the combinations to the access gates around Area 51.
Integrated into Pro Comp's Stage 2 suspension system are PC's Pro Runner coilover 2 3/4-inch monotube reservoir billet shocks in the front and adjustable MX6 monotube reservoir shocks in the rear. Filling the large voids that are the wheelwells are trick 17x9-inch Robby Gordon bead-locking wheels wrapped with 35x12.50x17 Pro Comp Mud-Terrain tires.
Knowing that the rig would actually be used in the wide-open spaces of some of the country's best-known sand dunes, as well as in conjunction with the other half of the team, a custom bed-mounted rack was fabricated to hold all the essentials needed for traversing the dunes. Taking refuge within the rack are a set of 33-inch Pro Comp custom paddle tires, a toolkit, a Powertank air system, and a custom jack. Illuminating the dunes on those midnight runs up Competition Hill are no less than eight stainless-steel Pro Comp 130 off-road lights that have been mounted to the color-matched and powdercoated Pro Comp lightbar and roof rack.
The interior of the Titan remains stock, with the exception of the Beard racing seats and Crow restraint system, which was done for obvious reasons. Rounding out the stunning and capable package was the addition of a complete custom exterior vinyl vehicle wrap, which matches the second half of the duo and showcases some of the innovative products and styling in the Pro Comp line.
