Finally got the new 350 in had about 6k done in body/ paint right before i deployed. Almost every exterior part on the truck is new from LMC. Still needs an interior though. If anyone has leads on interor trim parts let me know. Hard to find for 92-94 two doors.

Tell me more about these exterior pieces friend. How do they fit and shit? Lines good and all? Also, the interior trim is the same as a pickup so just grab 88-94 pickup parts.

*edit* Y u no put smoothie diesel bumper on, sick ass ride just wondering.

The bumpers, hood, hood insulation &clips, bumper impact strips, rear view mirrors, door handles, grille&bowtie, and wheel arch moulding trim is all from LMC. Lines are great. It all looks OEM and im very happy with it. Worth every penny. If you spend over 1k like i did they deliver to your front door for free with a tractor trailer. The bumpers are the premium chrome and look damn good. I also got a bunch of weather stripping and some body bushings and tons of hardware too.

I like the diesel bumpers. Guess i just didnt think about it at the time. I was more focused on keeping the original look and i was pressed for time since i was deploying.

Nice man, this thing is super slick. If you dont mind would you PM me a rough estimate of what you spent on this restoration. Really looking to do something similar to mine in the future.

Some additional shots (NBS M/C, OOBS DISC/DISC P/V), also note that the ABS module works 100% with the new plumbing. Future plans are ORD SAS kit, Ford high-pinion Dana 44 w/Chevy outers and spindles, and custom Dana 44 hubs/tone rings designed for Hummer H3 front brake hardware and ABS sensors.

Super jealous of all these clean 2-doors. I miss mine.

99 LS 4x4, Vortec 350, 3.73 gears

I did a bunch of stuff to mine. Corvette servo, Blackbear PCM tune, Gibson cat-back, cranked t-bars w/ a block in the back, built a 14 bolt SF with Yukon gears and a TrueTrac, 33" tires, clear headlights/markers, Z71 skid plates, 140 amp alternator from a GMT800 (direct bolt in), got the underhood reel light from an early OBS and installed that, ramm mat in the doors, Pioneer App Radio, upgraded speakers and tweeters, Punch sub in the back....just a ton of work into it. Sold it at 150,000 miles and bought a 2008 LT Z71. Now I wish I had kept it.

I did a 14 bolt SF swap on my 99. It's really not that bad of a swap.

You can get the axle from any light duty 2500 (7200GVW, 6-lug) or heavy duty 1500 (look for RPO F44) truck from 88 - 98. There were a ton of them made. I bought my axle on Craiglist for $150. It was not in bolt-in condition. I had to sand and paint it and the brakes were complete trash. Where I live, I think you could expect to spend about $800 for bolt-in condition. Might be better down south where rust doesn't fuck stuff up as much. I did a complete rebuild with Yukon premium gears and a Detroit True Trac and I rebuilt the brakes. The 14 bolt SF drum brakes are some of the more complex drums that I've fucked with. I did one side at a time. I've mostly owned disc brake vehicles though, so make of that what you will.

You will need a conversion u-joint. Mine was 1310 to 1350. Some people have an S44 to 1350. I think 1310 is most common. I found mine at a Traction heavy truck parts store, right on the shelf. They had one of those grizzled old dudes there that sounded like he smoked 2 packs a day since birth but could walk to the shelf and pull any part without looking it up. Save the straps for the u-joint from the donor axle. The ones from your truck won't match up.

My parking brake cables hooked up, no problem.

Make sure you get new u-bolts and nuts for the springs.
