Well as majority of you may know I sold my maroon reg cab and bought Darrens truck last week. Washed it, leveled the bumper a bit, and put some new meats on it. Hopefully more to come soon! :big_banana_Dance:








Leveled the bumper as best as I could.



Got rid of the Iroks and went with 33x13.5 x-terrains. So much better!

Tires could stand to be 35s but that's me being critical. Have any plans for it?

Yeah I was kind of hoping for 35s, but needed tires asap and none were to be found on cl. Found these at a pretty good deal and they were on the way home from Darren's. Would like to redo coil spring rates as its pretty stiff, currie sway bar, and possibly re-gear. Need to either get a new front hangar on passenger side or run the cognito hangars with stock springs. Would like to redo the link geometry and run joints so I can do some poser flexing :crazy: Then the whole 4wd part as well. Stuff that will certainly keep me busy and the bank account low :crazy:

Darren actually picked up a sweet ride. Turbo, 263hp, 280lb-ft, 6-spd.



I dislike the living shit out of any 99-02 bumpers due to flimsy valance. I do like them besides that part. Had some friends who painted them and they chip so quick. On my maroon truck I had the corner of the valance just simply break off when driving. I really like this bumper, just needs some filler pieces.

really? i've never had a problem with the 99-02 valances and i have flexed them even when painted and no problem.

the guy that bought my silverado sold his modded and turbo'd mazda 3 speed to buy mine.

Yeah maybe different luck then. I liked what Darren did with the front end so will be keeping it. I left the fog lights at home so can't wire those in till summer when I go back home.

Thanks everyone for the comments. :shake:

Redo coil spring rates and link geometry. Redo passenger hangar and get rid of the 5" block. Maybe re-gear it as well. Lot of stuff that I haven't decided in what order I want to do it lol It still gets mad wheel hop though with the 33s.

I have no clue lol these are kind of whining a bit. Whats nice is that he has the truetrac in there or I would go with a 14sf. Still may go that route and run 4.88s or another set of 5.13s :crazy: Going to go fill the truck up pretty soon. I'll post the mpg's :nono:
