96 rc sb 4x4 new addition to the family

picked up this for the wife to drive in the winter. needs cab corners and rockers. interior is really filthy. the saw blade wheels are going in favor for steel wheels. the mt's and 17 from my 97 are temporary till the steels are cleaned and painted.

Re: 96 rc sb 4x4 new addition to the family

well been driving the wheels off of Rusty as my wife has named it. went to change the upper ball joints the other day and found the new driver side front and rear shocks broken. good thing they are under warranty. also changed out the torn steering wheel and got rid of the nasty carpet for a factory grey rubber floor mat.

Truck looks really good. You just don't see enough regular cabs out there, especially 4WD ones.

Re: 96 rc sb 4x4 new addition to the family

That little truck has a new lease on life. Nice work. I bet you can pop out the dent in the passenger door with a suction cup. I've had real good luck with dents like that.

Re: 96 rc sb 4x4 new addition to the family

yes everyone is ok. I had some mild whiplash. the other guy was fine his truck is totaled too. sad part is it was someone else that caused the whole thing. I'm going to buy it back from the insurance company. if the frame isn't bent. I may try to fix it. if not I will have parts for my 97 and my father in-laws truck. so I may be truck hunting soon.

Re: 96 rc sb 4x4 new addition to the family

yes could have been worse. may have found a replacement. looking at a 2008 chevy k1500 lt Silverado ext cab 4x4. needs a little work but the price is right.
