I had planned on getting my 97’ Z71 fixed but with everything it needed plus shop labor it put me over budget pretty good for the cash I ended up with available. Sooooo I took some of my budget and decided to put it down on a newer truck. Ended up finding a mint 2004 Z71 5.3/4L60 with 160k on the clock and ZERO rust, lol cannot believe how good of condition it was in for $6500. Also has a LineX bedliner with no scratches, lol. Needed a radio and AC fixed. Got the AC fixed for $85 today, Pioneer double din in the near future along with some new headlights. Already had tinted windows, exhaust and CAI installed. I threw down $2500 so I had money left to fix the couple small issues and cover tag/tax stuff. It got a small dent in the front bumper but I already found replacements and it’ll be under $200 to fix. I’ll get more pics later, I already removed all the stickers on n the glass. After driving it for 2 days I’m very happy with my choice, truck runs strong.
