Picked this 2013 GMC Work truck up for stupid cheap. 2wd, v6. No rust. Only downfall is that It doesn't have reverse. Some other things it needs is to be cleaned real well, new passenger side mirror and to fix the CEL. Other than that she's solid. I've got clear headlights, 2" rear shackles and belltech front spindles.






I've got the front spindles for a 3-4" drop in the front I just need springs or lowering struts. The rear I have to figure out. With the block removed and the shackles I'll be down about 3", I just need another 2-3 and I'll be set. Anything I've seen is f flip kit but they're all 7" and don't feel like buying a whole new kit since I already have the rear shackles. So maybe hanger kit?

Other than that maybe slap headers and exhaust on and call it a day. With some wheels.

Think of how many more parts you would have if you didn't waste money on a 2wd v6 with a garbage trans

You’re putting headers and exhaust on that...?

Maybe. Only if I find a deal. Every part I've picked up so car has been on the cheap. Not going nuts, just want to cruise around and haul the parts I need for my other trucks.

Oh I don’t plan on touching the motor UNLESS I get a sweet CL deal on stuff lol I know what the truck is. Very undesirable.

Meaning headers are a pointless investment. Especially in pa. Since you need cats and the sensors to pass emissions.

I’ve never had issues with my previous vehicles with modified exhausts. From basic bolt one to basically illegal lol

I’m curious how cheap “stupid cheap” is...

So free. Money for title transfer and gas to get it is not the cost of purchase

That is like including insurance in how much you paid
