71 GMC Ol Green


I bought my GMC when I came home in 2008 from Iraq from a guy in Tucson AZ, I got it at a pretty good price and found it to have some hidden issues (dont they all). Found that the frame was bent like a pretzel, but I am always up for the challenge.

First upgrade was delay wipers, then came the rallys, then power windows,tilt, Dodge Ram power seats with a console. AC with serpentine setup was last summer.

The last couple of weeks I went crazy and re-framed it, taking out the leaf springs and putting in a coil spring frame, had a 700R4 built, I re-geared the rear with 3.42 and installed the camaro calipers. Also added ECE rear 4 inch coil drop springs and shocks.

This is now one smooth daily driver......
