Default 98 z71 dd/summer toy

so i picked up a 98 reg cab long box z71 not too long ago for a very good preice and the truck is nearly spotless, very sharpe lookin with no flaws. heres a quick run down..5.7 vortech, 4L80E trans, 145k miles, one of the only green colored trucks i have ever l iked its actually called a dahlia blue its a metallic color i guess gm used for a couple years. since bought i have put a B&M shift kit i had sittin in the garage that was meant for my last truck like this, also a 2 inch body lift, 33" yokahamas on 15x9 wheels, cut muffler out and welded in dummy pipe, sounds good..keep in mind this truck will never see mud only sand, hoping to make it a fun truck for the dunes and to take on the tank trails around home

soon to come:
4-6" suspension lift
ladders bars
4.56 gears
detroit lockers
35"-37" tires depending on what i go with on more lift
cold air intake
headers
custom 3" true duals thanks to grandpas new pipe bender
chip
programmer
halo headlights
blacked out euro's in the rear

here is a link with pics of my truck, cant get em to upload on here

look under the 98 z71 album

Body lifts are easy. All you need is a jack , a 4x4 piece of wood , time and lots of pb blaster.

That's a nice looking truck ! If you get halo lights make sure you get some nice ones my brother got a cheap set off ebay and they leaked water like crazy. Uploaded one of the pics for ya too.
