Here is my suggested Garchomp for you

Garchomp @ Leftovers/ Smooth Rock
Trait:Sand Veil
EVs: 252 Speed/252 Atk/ 4 SpDef
Nature:Jolly(+Speed, -SpAtk)
Moves:
- Hones Claws
- Fire Fang
- Dual Chop
- Sandstorm

Hones Claws are too boost the low accuracy of your moves and boost the attack. Fire Fang is to take care of that ice weakness. I choose Dual Chop because it hits the opponents hard(after a Hones Claws boost) and it's a Sub breaker.

Also look here for move sets. Look here on where to raise for EVs.

No earthquake???
Why Dual chop? Dragon claw and Dragon Pulse both have more power.
Dragon Claw has the same Base Power as Dual Chop and Dragon Pulse is a special move which would not be boosted by his EVs or Hone Claws. But I would think Dragon Rush would be better with Hone Claws.
Ok that makes sense. Dragon rush is better but it has low accuracy. Upvoting.
Hone claws dragon rush is weaker than swords dance dragon claw
I think swords dance is a better choice
