Default The green chevy

I don't really have a clever name for it maybe you guys can help but heres what I have done so far.

engine wise iv only done cold air intake, msd cap, rotor, wires, and e3 plugs

fixed all the very little rust there was only a little on the rockers.

put a whole new exhaust on it (flowmaster delta 10 series)

rims,tires,paint,roll on bed liner,visor,with lights,grill,trail lights,and the orange lights in grill.
also new mirrors from a 2001 hd

plans install the lift I just bought (zone 3inch lift) bigger tires maybe regear.
later on maybe a 5.3 swap. but in the mean time get hid head lights led tail lights maybe some other things.


now on to the many pics. I will try do post pics in order.


first day i got it


bed liner



tool box with cb antennas


took the air dam off painted the tow hooks and skid red


took the fenders off for paint



all painted an on the truck


old grill

repainted the black on the bottom the po did a really bad job


new rims and tires



installed the trail lights kc daylighters


visor and pic of lights behind grill

Nice truck, and good looking pup. I have a Red lab pup about that age (6 mos). They're a lot of fun and a pain in the ass at the same time. Wouldn't have it any other way.

Ya but I'm going to go with 33s or 285s I just want a more aggressive looking stance and the reason I bought the body lift is because it was 200 bucks and not 1300 for a suspension like I wanted but I'm not loaded lol
