Cool Back again, this time with my dream truck. 1999 2 door 2wd Tahoe

I致e had a couple 71/72 C-10s and 1990s GMT400 pickups but this weekend I just picked up this beauty queen.

She needs a few things, but not paint and body. I can replace bumpers and work on suspension and brakes and under the hood repairs but I can稚 do bodywork and paint (not enough space or time or experience), so I知 stoked at how clean she is.

Presenting my 1999 2wd, 2 door, 5.7 Tahoe!

Day one of getting her into town included a sunset photo pic.

Drove my car to Los Angeles to pick her up, so I rented a Uhaul tow dolly to bring my car back. Only used a quarter tank of gas (WTF?!) with cruise control at 55mph as much as possible.

Day 2 included driving all the way back to LA for a used set of 2000 Tahoe Limited 16s.

Day 3 was registration and new Goodyear 235/70/16s.

She is bone stock and a great canvas. I知 never selling her.

I知 in love and just wanted to share with you all. ❤️

I知 sure I値l be on this forum more once again.
Thank you all for the valuable info you share.


Future plans:
Mild drop.
Polishing the headlights.
Probably debadging and pulling off the flakey side molding.
Maybe Texas style 20s in machined silver finish (I like stock rims but hate anything bigger than 20s on these).
Double din stereo and subs ($140 for the unpainted dash bezel lol wth)
New carpet.
New headliner.
General wear and tear replacements.

Re: Back again, this time with my dream truck. 1999 2 door 2wd Tahoe

Thanks! I’m stoked. My factory radio had a few lights out and the common CD player not working, so I found an old (circa 2002) single din head unit in my garage box of old truck parts. That with an amazon echo going into the aux input (old stereo has usb and aux in but no Bluetooth) and I’m jamming and happy!

Also threw in an Optima yellow top. Wow, expensive but worth every penny. Fires right up strong every time!
