Nice, just don't follow me at night. But seriously when upgrading your headlights check the alignment as they can be blinding to others.

Re: What did you do yo your truck today??

I finally got the 2" lift blocks mounted in the back, finishing off the 4" lift kit. I also found a dirt cheap topper to run in the winter…

Re: What did you do yo your truck today??

New rotor, cap, plugs, wires, and distributor. Turns out all those were original with 158,000 miles. New starter and battery too. The antifreeze got replaced when the bypass hose blew. Ready for winter!

Re: What did you do yo your truck today??

Replaced my door ajar switch on my 91 sierra 1500, the old one was WORE OUT. It wouldn't even turn the lights off and the new one is significantly more tactile. Now, I'm waiting for the passenger side to go out.

Not much goes wrong anymore, really need to invest on getting my rear sliding window sealed up, all the seals have dry rotted and I've been using RTV to keep it from rattling. haha

Re: What did you do yo your truck today??

Picked up a decent frame for my 1994 Chev ext cab shortbox 2WD. It came off a low mileage(47K) 1998 that had a dash fire that ruined the cab. Friend of mine bought it for the 5.7 engine and the mint box and I got the rolling chassis from him for cheap. Frame is really rusty on my truck and this one only started to show some color after I power washed it. Once I get it pickled in POR-15 it should even outlast me LOL. That hunk of rust in front of the rear wheel is the spare tire carrier that fell off my truck a few months ago so you can imagine what the rest of my truck's frame looks like.

Re: What did you do yo your truck today??

i just picked this 98 GMC up this weekend. belltech spindles and c-notch. i'll be changing out the 265's in rear for sure. they are way to big. probably go to a 235/75/15 on the 8" rears since the front has 225/75/15 on 7" fronts. i think that will give it a better, more level stance.
roll pan rear with hidden receiver.

Re: What did you do yo your truck today??

Very nice, I like the wheels. I am old school and like the 15" rims better than the big wheel little tire.

thanks guys!! got a set of 235/75r15 put on the rear. took dash out and replaced a burned out check engine light. failed emissions due to that and a p0420 code. cleared code out and drove it maybe 10 miles and probably 12 start/run/shut off cycles trying to get computer to reset. no check engine light as of yet.

Re: What did you do yo your truck today??

Heard a snap this AM when I backed the truck out of the yard and now the body lines don't match up any more. Officially off the road now until I can get the frame swapped. Fortunately we have an identical low mileage frame in really good shape. Lots of work but well worth the effort.

Re: What did you do yo your truck today??

Replacement frame is in the garage and ready for wire brushing and paint. Big job swapping frames but the end result is worth the effort.



A quick test with a wire wheel in the cordless drill on a small section found black paint underneath all the mud and crud which sort of changes my plans for the choice of paint. I've been told POR-15 won't stick to painted surfaces so I'll have to go with good old Tremclad or Rustoleum.

Re: What did you do yo your truck today??

I have had no luck getting POR 15 to stick to anything except rust or sandblasted metal. I would us an oil rich paint such as rustoleum . It takes days to dry though. I have done many frame swaps over the years, pull the cab and bed,then motor /trans set both frames next to each other and switch things over.Don't put the motor back till all brake and fuel lines are in. Suspension parts are easier to switch with the motor in for the weight.

Been fixing wiring for a week. PO hacked it up, and tried to fix it with duct tape. I'm fixing all the breaks by twisted, crimped, soldered, heat shrieked, and all new flex loom.
