A few weeks ago I sold my truck and for shits and giggles lets recap what happened durning my posession.
Model: K1500 4×4 Z71
Motor: 350ci – 5.7 liter – 285hp
- 6 " Superlift Softride suspension kit
- 35×12.5 Wild Country TXR

- Edlebrock Preformer TBI intake
- Edlebrock Performer cam
- Hooer Competition headers (ceramic metallic coated)
- Flowmaster two camber muffler (3"inlet, daul 2 1/2 outlets)
- allumized exhaust
- Supertuner performer chip
- K&N airfilter
- 4:56 gear ratio
- stock transfer case
- new 700R4 transmission 😦 (those were shitty tranys)
- new rear driveline (i broke the first one when my tranny exploded on I-5 catching up to a hottie driving a Viper, the best way to go)
Well that thing was a good truck and I sold her after 9 1/2 years. Since i sold her I have been looking for a new truck. Yes, another truck. The new hottness is a get black 🙂
Model: C1500 2wd
Motor: 327ci – 5.3 liter – 295hp
She looks great and like all my other trucks she is bone stock. It gives a perfect canvas to paint my picture. Buying the truck there were a few points that were important. Int & Ext colors, motor and overall condition of the truck. So when I came across a black one with the biggest V8 in a half ton I was stoked. If I even try to punch it from a stop or slow roll the tires light up. It does have a traction problem but I don’t mind. On the freeway the power is most noticable. It lurches and starts gettin down the road pulling like striped ass ape. Hold to seat belt where going for a ride, WHOOPA WHOOPA.
Maybe I can take it to the tract and seem some numbers. It would be nice to have a base line before I start modifying crap. I love to take stuff apart and put other stuff on. I will try my best to not touch it and plus there are no dineros to fund those endevors. I did work some 20s in the deal though. They are ready Monday 🙂 A rig has to have rims if nothing else.
I will post some pics when its nice outside and clean. hehehe I feel and excited and scared all at the same time. It has been along time since I purchased a vehicle, 9 1/2 years long.
It feels godo to have a newer truck but the "brand spankin new" vehicle still aludes. My first truck was a 1983 Chevy, notice a pattern, S-10. It had work done to it as well but that was a long time ago and this story is already way to long. So with have I am going to say peace out and go wonder around spaces and drop the wasssup 🙂
Ah one more thing…I went to the Seattle Supercross Tonight at Quest Field. Crazy fun, stayed sober, no beer but i had pizza and made safely home. It was bad ass. I will have to share some more later.
