    Pretty sure I'll be doing the same here sooner then later. Truck isn't starting smoothly when warm

    See that's the thing, my truck starts up fast once it's been run a while, it's hard starting after it sits for a couple hours,

    I won't be able to do the work myself, I'll be dropping it off at a shop, I don't have time or a place really to dig into this in my neighborhood,

    My vote is gmt800 mirrors too, the newer ones just don't seem right to me.

    See, a white truck can pull of the chrome mirrors, but I feel like the darker red of my truck would be better suited to black mirrors,
    Truck looks damn good by the way, still trying to sell the Burb? I saw it listed a while back, does it still have a body lift on it or anything?

    Thanks! Thats very true! I agree that with the burgundy red the flat black standard mirrors would look good.

    Yea! nobody wants to pay anything for it, it has body lift still on it and ugly stock wheels. I think thats why. Ive put all new ball joints cleaned everything. I had to do en emergency brake overhaul recently as the brake booster decided to destroy itself so I'm tired of dumping money into it :gr_guns:

    Hell if I had the money and a place to keep it, I'd come out and get it for parts, never hurts to have a spare 96 454/4L80E combo laying around.
    But my parents would kill me if I hauled that thing home :lol:

    This is why I keep all of my trucks at a friend's house, my parents would have already murdered me if they saw my other trucks :rolleyes:

    Thought about it, but I hate to intrude on my friends like that, plus both of the ones who store crap for other friends already have full yards because of it,

    You aint lying! I've thought about using it for the drivetrain on the truck and parting it out, but i have a need for the money persuading me not too, bills never stop coming haha. Oh my parents do hate me I'm always taking up shop space woking on my crap. LOL
