      I have a Q for you . I have a 94 . I am installing a rear defrost harness out of 94 burb . And 99 Burb mirrors with heat Now Am good with wiring it all up . But one thing the defrost switch wire going to window grid is 12 awg . And the mirror heat wire is 20 awg . worried it might heat up and burn . unless the defrost wire is 12 gauge cuz how far it has to run . right ? can you enlighten me ?

        I'm not sure what ga the wire is, but i do know the mirrors dont take much they are a small draw compared to the window. I'm sure if you match the mirrors to their wires or go up a size you'd be fine, and run something larger for the rear window.

        how did you wire in the heat for your mirrors ? did you go right to the convenience center and used a switch ? Or did you do what handcannon did from " the truck stop" and add a rear window defrost switch from a 92-94 suburban and jumped the mirror heat wires from the rear defrost grid wire ?

      I put out a ISO/WTB post on FB earlier today and someone pointed me in your direction, saying you might be looking to sell a CCLB dually. Is that right? Can you give me some info on it and what you're looking to get for it? I glossed through the "Black Fox" thread but wanted to send a PM directly.

        There really isn't anywhere that is a direct one stop shop for parts, and doing the conversion is a lot of factory pieces just have to either junkyard them or do the research and find many of them used or new old stock.

        i don't have any picts it wasn't hard, just set the two side by side and compare them and the springs are a really strong FYI.

        It's very unlikely i'd find them in the quantity and price I did before, they got for about $35-40 each from GM.

      Man I gotta say, you have done some fantastic modifications to your trucks. The Denali lights and then adding the leveling motors to those, the GMT800 wiper squirters, the NV4500 swap (this helped me alot) and then your brake light mod. I read that a few years ago and now, i cant find it. Did you delete it or is it on another forum?

      Thanks for the great ideas and great write ups.

        It was on another forum that no longer has the images and stuff, but some others have re-done it on this forums somewhere

      I have a question. Are you running the electronic fuel management in your whipple charger? Thanks.

        I got rid of the whipple electronics and fuel injections system by installing a 0411 PCM with a custom tune and larger injectors.

        Did the truck perform better with the 411 tune and bigger injectors? What size injectors did you go with? Thanks.

      The black dually is the best looking truck I have seen! I have the same truck with the same tire and wheel combo but yours seems to sit just a little higher and look perfect. I went through the entire build thread but I'm sure I missed it did you to a lift of any kind if so what sizes.
      Love all the info in the build thread thanks!

      Hey quick question. Your single headlight dually. Did you purchase your turning signals smoked? And if so where haha. I have a k3500 going through all the lights for plowing.
