Default ak's 2000 4door

figured id throw some pics up now that its running again, it blew the intake/headgaskets and hydro locked 2 years ago after being beat on by its previous owner. I swapped in a running w-vin engine with 110k on the clock last year, but forgot to do the gaskets after letting the engine sit for a year. the intake or headgasket started mixing coolant and oil so I did a full topend rebuild last month, along with external fluid coolers.
runs like a champ now, even with bad o2 sensors!


its got every option except zr2/sunroof. full leather, a/c, all power, heated, 4 button 4wd, ls/lt package.


future mods: electric fans, air shocks, retrofit headlights, led board tails, led interior conversion, shaved badges/trim, decent soundsystem, single svt cobra muffler.

heres a few more pics. went and tested the 4wd, 4hi works great from neutral or "on the fly" but it didn't want to go into low and I have no clue if the axles were locking/engaging posi when they were supposed to be.








I have a wicked squeak in the front drivers side suspension, guess its time for a urethane master bushing/mount kit.

recently shaved the side strikes and badges. swapped out the door control panels for bravada smartrak woodgrain panels and a tachometer cluster too.

im thinking im going to start the headlight retrofit very soon. just cant decide if I want to work off of a set of clear 98+ s10/blazer lights using oem single hid or dual halogen projector units. also thought about trimming my grille and using sonomas with projectors in the fog spot.

















heres a few retrofits Ive done.


400ex etched lenses

halogen cavailer set







lexus sc400 cavalier retrofit with bosch micro highbeams

To get it into four low you have to switch into neutral. Take lots of pics, will be interesting to see how you retro some projectors into there.
