    BNielsen's 2000 Chevy K3500

    Hopefully this mill runs as good as I think it will, it starts like a champ and has great oil pressure, not much blow-by, doesn't leak too bad

    BNielsen's 2000 Chevy K3500

    Dropped it off today, hopefully going to pick it up tomorrow. Probably won't be able to give it a good shakedown run just yet but for now I'll drive it back and forth to work, I've got a feeling there's going to be plenty of things wrong I'll find in a short amount of time.

    My GMT800, 2003 RCLB 2500HD Build / Rebuild!

    Well maybe it's a good thing I can't get an answer from them. I've been looking at the Wardens for like, 5 months now but they're still out of stock. I've emailed them asking when they'll be available again, but going off your experience I guess I'll go a different route. Did they just wear out...

    Build a hypothetical 3500HD.

    I think there's a bit of a skirt to the flatbed, that's why it looks so low. I think most aftermarket conversion companies used leaf springs; everything I've seen that's been SAS'd like Monroe trucks or Quigley vans have been leaf sprung. Coils/3-link could be the key to a reasonable height...

    Tray for 2nd battery

    Honestly if it wasn't so hokeypoke looking I may have left them, my CB does have a PA output and I toyed around with putting a small speaker behind my bumper or something. The car alarm angle is interesting though, I never thought of that, I assumed it was just a PA since the truck had a CB...

    Tray for 2nd battery

    I installed the storage box in my 96 the day after I brought it home, the PO's had some wonky PA speaker and horns in that space.

    Tray for 2nd battery

    I wonder if the driver's side tray was snatched out of my crew, it didn't have one when I got it. My old 97 Suburban had one, I removed it for an underhood storage box; and my 96 K2500 didn't have anything.

    Build a hypothetical 3500HD.

    There's a picture floating around of an insanely low 3500HD 4x4; I think I have the picture saved somewhere. Following the thread though; always wanted an HD but I'm content with my K2500 and K3500, they'll do everything I want them to do. ---EDIT---- Found it.

    BNielsen's 2000 Chevy K3500

    Still got some stuff to do, windshield guy is coming Tuesday to replace the glass, there's a leak I think chased to the top of the windshield and I think the seal is bad, I can move the glass a couple of centimeters back and forth and almost see some daylight. Still got a couple grounds to...

    0411 swap L29, now no idle

    When I did my 0411 swap my truck idled like dog **** but ran fine; what it wound up being was a blown Eng-1 fuse for the MAF sensor. Maybe check that?

    $600 2000 C3500 CCLB

    I was gonna offer a reasonable amount, but honestly I probably would've wound up parting it out; I don't trust fire damaged vehicles. They're never right even if you replace everything burnt.

    Misc. GMT400 Parts Hoard

    I can grab them, my buddy hauled it off but I said I still needed some parts; I'll holler at him some time this week. If I can't pull it out of the parts truck I'll try to grab one next time I find myself at LKQ I can grab the full thing, how's $20 sound?

    Misc. GMT400 Parts Hoard

    I can probably grab some for you, I sold my parts truck but I didn't have time to pull the harness, I can at least get the harness and rubber seals.

    88GMCtruck's 98 Silverado Towpig Build: "Black Fox"

    I wanted a B&W for my red truck, but with it already having all the holes drilled for rails I just decided to go that route. My crew cab on the other hand is gonna get a weld in B&W turnover center piece since at some point someone welded a big ass chunk of 1/2 C-channel and a fixed ball in the...

    3500HD handles/rods

    I got mine, amazing quality, but my already damaged door latch completely came apart when I tried to install them, I've got the replacement latch just no time to install it. I got a hold of him directly through FB and he got me on the right track to order.

    Misc. GMT400 Parts Hoard

    Got some stuff I forgot about, driver's side battery tray, $25; a set of door sill protectors, I'll do $20 for these, I'm not too sure how rare they are but I grab them any time I see them. I also still have quite a few fog light switches. The parts have since been cleaned up, and they're ready...

    Bowtie Brody's Namesake 96 454

    I don't even want to think about it. It's just an aluminum guard; all for just looks. I'm probably going to take measurements of everything and make one out of steel though, just in case.

    I just can't quit staring at this thing now. I stood out in the driveway for 10 minutes with the booger light shining on it.

    The building of "Bert", a 1999 ecsb K2500

    Ever think of going a big single 3" with a Walker Bus muffler? I'm sort of in the same boat, towing with these damn glasspacks makes my ears wanna bleed. Hopefully going to a larger set with an h-pipe in the future will bring it down to a better sounding and less annoying level. The Jones...

    Bowtie Brody's Namesake 96 454

    It's honestly super light, it's just aluminum; so it wouldn't do much for protection, it's more looks than anything For the brush guard, the two fog lights, and a chunk of wiring it was 89 bucks out the door. I've noticed even prices at the salvage yards are creeping up; I thought about taking...

    stuff that catches my eye

    Oh! I should've specified; first pic is a 91, 2nd is a 99 Tahoe. I can almost always find a large overhead console any time I go to LKQ, they're usually torn up by the time I see them though.

    stuff that catches my eye

    In the salvage yard, came across a 91 K1500 with a sunroof?? It looked like a standard truck, no signs of it being a conversion truck, and a full length OHD console with a screen in it, if I had more time I would've grabbed both of them for posterity sake.

    Bowtie Brody's Namesake 96 454

    Sure did! I grabbed every bit of hardware that was there, I was lucky, no one had even touched it but someone tore apart the dash trying to pull the radio out.
