    The Midwest got the best of my old gal so I had to rebuild the tailgate section. I cut out all the rust and tried my best to remake it like the original. The fuel tank crossmember was rotten so I removed the rivets and replaced it with a southern clean one. I cleaned the entire frame and por 15 the chassis. Should be ready for paint soon

    Finished the tank, and tailgate section. I finally got around to cutting out the rotten bits around the fuel door area. I’m not a body or paint guy so this is a cheap simple fix for my work vehicle

    Did you use a 58x crank, or swap the tone ring?

    So originally I had an ls2 but cracked a cylinder sleeve so I transferred everything into a lq9 but beefed up the bottom end except for the tbss crank. It was all balanced before install

    Put a suburban sway bar on my 2 door today. Cost me only 17 bucks total.
