Two wheel drive
Rocking the Cpi 4.3 (im already waiting on the spider to leak )
4l60e trans
3.42 g80 (sweet!)
total ac overhaul done. has new everything. ICE COLD AIR! FINALLY!
new rad

Mileage unkown. It has the digital dash. Guy told me it died (which is indeed common) and replaced it. He said the old one shown 140kish. Who knows? Truck doesn't smoke,trans shifts pretty good. im happy.
As of now 100% stock. Stock wheels too,i love em! looks like the camaro wheels.


Future plans is :

So,this morning i went to the dmv to get the $5 45 day tag since im basically pinching pennys until its fixed. got it legal'd.

on way out i noticed a load of coolant on the ground. Great.. Thankfully it was just the top rad hose,has a 1/2" split. I gotta chuck out 20 bucks on a hose. Trucks also in need of a dire tune up. has a random miss at idle. I pulled the paper filter out and it was old and dirty. So today is a filter and hose kinda day. rest of tune up stuff has to wait.

did some looking on the front end. My clunk is happening due to the fact there is no rubber left on both upper control arms. So,im going to hit up the yard for 2 good control arms. Its just 20 bucks apiece. Maybe il get lucky and find a truck with the engine out. it'll take me 5 minutes to remove one.

Alrighty then. time to throw something in this thread.

Today i found 3 tires,really good tread for 60.00 mounted/balanced. (215-70-15)
2 weeks ago i traded a tire for a tire+15.00. So for 75.00 i got a set of 4 in great shape. Im happy.

We didnt get a inch of snow last year. A few flurries but thats it down here. Last bad storm was i think in 07'. 6" of snow then froze to ice. Sc went ape**** over 6". people wrecking etc. People down here have no clue how to drive in the snow. I grew up here,but i guess im smarter then a few others lol. I'll get some new pics a lil later with the tires i got.
