Re: How about some pics of 88-98 Part II

Just drive it. It the steering wheel (got off when intermediate shaft was changed) aligned right. I may touch up the bed and put home grown bed liner in it since the inside of the bed is a different color. The 64is the same idea. No big tear downs, just drive, enjoy, tinker.

Re: How about some pics of 88-98 Part II

picked up this 91 Cheyenne 6 weeks ago for $975. not particularly solid or straight or clean but it runs really strong for 209+K on it. it isn't a dd I just like having a truck around & iv already put it to work a few times. what really sold me is the 4.3/5 spd OD. Prob sounds stupid to most but I wanted something decent on gas & I really wanted a manual but really needed a decent size truck. it cruises really nice after putting $300+ in brakes parts and a new exhaust system from the Y-pipe back on it(really just the Y,an aftermarket cat & dynomax muffler,no tailpipe). I scored a set of truck rallies with 255/70's on the rear & 225/75's on the front. didn't get pics with the rallies yet. I didn't exactly "want' rallies but I did want wider wheels,something sorta dressy,i did get a really good deal on them,however, from a friend(theburmanator) so I figured what the hell. but other than a stereo upgrade & a coat of primer on the lower half I don't have any plans for it.

Re: How about some pics of 88-98 Part II

Nice. I love the look of the 88-98 trucks with the pre 88 ralleys.

Yes sir; I pulled the Chevrolet placard off the same time I did the side molding but was never able to get all of the residue off. I tried Goo Gone and even some professional grade stuff from the detail shop at my job, but it seems embedded in the paint. I may have to get it repainted, along with the right side of the bed. Thanks for the compliment!

Re: How about some pics of 88-98 Part II

There is a rubber wheel used for pinstripe removal you can buy it at any parts store it works great and is about 20 cad. So it will be much cheaper for you lol

Re: How about some pics of 88-98 Part II

The rubber stripe remover took my tailgate adhesive off easily. I use them in my body shop all the time to remove decals or moulding adhesive or double sided tape residue.

I got an old emblem from the 60's I think it is off the rear body panel of a Nova. I had to grind the back flat and fill with bondo to put it on with double sided tape.

Re: How about some pics of 88-98 Part II

That is an idea I stole from this site. I don't remember who had posted it as it was so many threads ago. The rear lights cut into the bumper I will take credit for. I needed to have lights that could be switched on with the truck in park to launch and retrieve my boats at night.

Missed this one before. That's a seriously clean truck, which is no shock given your other trucks. Always loved that two tone on an extended cab.

Re: How about some pics of 88-98 Part II

I suppose i'll post my rigs.

This is my old '98 K1500 5.7 Auto. I miss this truck and wish I wouldn't have sold it. Had 203K when I got rid of it. Local guy still has it and takes excellent care of it at least,



I sold the '98 to buy my '95 K2500 6.5L Diesel Auto. The truck sat for 5 years because of a bad trans. Fired right up for the first time in 5 years and i've put 13K trouble free miles on it so far after the new trans.

This is the day i got it. Couldn't believe how clean it was from sitting, didn't even wash it yet.

Making progress.



And a year later as of last month, I still have a lot more things to do but I love this truck.

My 95 350 I'm beginning to sink my wallet and heart into. My grandfather bought this truck in 2000 but has had at least (7) 88-98 rcsb 2 wheel drives w/350. Never left one of them stock. He built street rods his whole life and was a pretty famous builder. His love and skill for auto motives rubbed off on me so I am now 24 and just graduated college and am opening my own auto shop by April 2015. Anyways my grandfather who raised me and taught me everything I knew Passed October 2nd 2014. This 1995 beauty was left to me and was his last and only vehicle. He had already had the 3/4 drop done, flow master exhaust, rebadged, tinted, wheels (but not these ones), corvette servo, and a few other things. Well since I have owned it as a tribute to him I'm going all out on this truck cosmetically then I will be building the 350 and keep you guys posted. I have put the 18x8 riddler w/ 235/55/18 on front and 18x9.5 255/55/18 rear, alpine speakers and radio, billet grille, crystal headlights running lights and markers, new rear bumper, new taillights, new mirrors, new carpet, new suede headliner, and best of all suede and leather bench seat cover for $750 as well as suede inserts in the doors, and put the bed cover on. I am beginning to get this thing where I want it and am really happy with the progress. Contemplating a 4/6 drop but I pull a Baja so not practical but other than getting the paint cleaned up real nice this winter and possibly re routing exhaust Its almost where I want. Please feel free on suggestions for rerouting the exhaust (i.e side exit, different tips etc.) but this is my beloved chevy at the moment that I will die with. I can't picture a better vehicle to remember and tribute him with and every time I look at my pappys truck I smile. Here are some pics and I will be keep you guys updated as well as posting pictures of all the other 88-98 silverados he had.

Re: How about some pics of 88-98 Part II

A few more shots of the all new fresh interior. plus one photo of before. This truck was a daily driver since 2000 and work truck for me in 2012 so the carpet, the cloth, and the headliner was a mess. I actually have a landscaping business that exists only because my grandpa let me use this truck for the first year. We scratched it and ruined the interior but my good ole loving grandpa didn't care because he was helping me. Just the type of person he was.

Heres the truck when it was my work truck in 2012 as well as the way it looked in 2000 when he bought which is the picture with the big wide american eagles on it. This was replaced by the white 2002 5.3 4x4 silver ado which I love as a work truck

Grampys 88-98 chevy trucks

Red one is 91 350, black one is 93, the only 4x4 he ever owned which is the one pulling the boat was a 93 but was only to pull his 27 ft. baja. These are the only ones I've found pictures of so far, but many more to come. This was the early 90's so the pin striping and weld wheels were all that then. But as always he did the bell tech 3/4 drop. And the last photo is of my grandfathers 1936 cabriolet with the rumble seat, 350 crate motor, street rodded from front to back in his garage over a year. Just one of his many restored/street rods he was put in magazines for. (thats me in the seat) As you can see my passion for cars has come from him, and his life was cars, and he was my life, so his unexpected passing in october has driven me to share his passions with others who do as well. Thanks for reading and glad I joined this forum. Look forward to meeting some guys.

That's a nice looking truck you inherited. Sorry to hear about your grandfather, but I'm glad to hear his passion rubbed off on you. I dig those 90's trucks too! Welcome to the forum.
