Should have thrown on a supercharger while you had it apart lol
$$$

Also, anyone know whats going on with my catch can? I installed it correctly - hose coming from the valve cover - top of catch can/inlet, then out to the the top of the intake. All the fittings are sealed up with thread sealant and all the hoses are secured with hose clamps. I have a huge vacuum leak with it setup like that.

Place I bought it from gave me zero help.

I got led headlights and switchbacks finally



Monday I have paint coming to do some color matching. Plan on doing the mirrors as well as the tailgate handle/pull this time around.

What brand LEDs did you get and where from? I like the color of those lights, they look more white than the whitish blue that my 6000k HIDs give me. Good looking truck!

I’ve been hanging loose on this recently

Earlier today I wrapped my steering wheel trim to match the other trim inside




About to order some morimoto fogs, my driver side one has a leak and it’s real annoying.

Also, I’ve decided on bell tech front struts,spindles and a bell tech rear flip kit for a total drop of 3/5. I know a guy who has stock 245/70/17’s that I’m going to slap on my 17’s until I man up and get real wheels

Got it in. Had to be ghetto and install with hose because my factory trans lines were rusted like a motherfucker. I’ll be redoing them down the road..

I love seeing your progress on this truck. I have an 08 Silverado 1500 2wd that was my dads truck. I put a 2” lowering kit on the rear already and getting ready to do a 5x7 drop soon. Saving money and collecting the parts now. Here’s my truck as it sits now. Well I’ve got to figure out how to add media. I’ve got Texas edition 20”s and love the look.

Alright so wasn’t expecting this.

Yesterday when leaving work I started my truck and it began dumping fuel underneath. Got it towed home and placed in a position to work.



From what I’ve heard, my father had the same issue about 9 years ago. He said he spliced in a fitting he made. I was able to fit my camera in there and saw the fitting he made, and sure enough the line busted again right after it.



Soo now I plan on pulling the bed, since there is zero room to work, install a new fuel pump while I’m in there and also replace that line. While it’s off I’m also planning on cleaning up the frame + repaint it.

Let’s hope this all goes to plan. I already started pulling the small stuff to remove the bed, however it’s snowing like a mofo here.
