Whats up guys, joined the forum to read some info on these NNBS trucks since I just picked one up a few weeks ago.

It's a 2013 Chevy RCSB LS with a 4.8L. First things I've done to it already include a SLP dead pedal and I added the factory DIC.

...and I currently have two boxes from Mcgaughys sitting in the garage. :naughty:

Right now I'm looking at doing a 4/7 drop on some 20's and ditching most of that chrome. Here's a quick photoshop I threw together to get an idea.

Here's my old truck, I figured you guys would like to see it.

0919141749_zpsc833fd78.jpg


It's a 2002 Chevy S10 2.2l that I built as a corner carver.

The mods included:
-56mm Quad 4 Throttle Body
-33mm ZQ8 front sway bar (w/ all urethane bushings)
-25mm beltech rear sway bar
-3" ground force drop coils
-3" Beltech Drop Leafs
-ZQ8 Frame Brace and Bumpstops
-flowmaster 40 series muffler
-E-bay Intake
-Taurus e-fan
-corvette tranny servo
-JTR axle setback plates
-Undercover tonneau cover
-paint-matched grill shell
-Street Scene mirrors
-Automatic Transmission Cooler
-Blazer Dual Piston front brake swap
-Goodridge SS brake lines
-17x8 SLP ZR1 wheels w/ 245/45r17 Nitto NR555 tires

I used to autocross it fairly often and while the new truck will probably not see as much cone action as my last one I do plan on bringing it out to a few events (after I drop it of course). I'll be honest the new truck handles better than I thought it would. It has the towing package on it with stiffer springs and the larger front sway bar and it feels pretty solid unlike the S10 where you could feel the frame twisting every time you threw it in a turn.

Wow, a dead pedal. Haven't seen any since the cars from the eighties.
I know, I was just used to putting my foot up on the firewall in the old s10 and in the new truck you can't reach it with your foot. I found that pedal randomly searching for parts one day and I have hardly taken my foot off it when driving since I've installed in on the truck.

Been a while since I updated this thread.

Lowered it 4/7 using a McGaughys adjustable kit. Picked up a new set of 20" Denali take-off wheels. Later swapped the 275/55's for 265/50's. Installed a Mangaflow turndown cat-back and a Airaide Intake. Then I swapped grilles with my dad's truck and added painted mirror covers and door handles.
