Well her she is, finally put her back together, tell me what you think.

I ll give you a little back ground this my daily driver. It is a 2000 GMC 3500, 7.4, 5 speed, a\c, cruise, power windows, cd, sat radio, 112,000 miles. I bought it from the original owner here in Oklahoma. He was a rancher who pulled a horse trailer with it. First thing I did when I got it home was a Bell Tech 5\8 lowering kit but was not low enough so we did some more modifing and got a couple more inches lower. Then installed a new old stock GM tailgate the old one was trashed, installed a steel roll pan, and finally tied up the back with a Snuglid fiberglass bed cover. Up front I installed a smoothie painted front bumper, swapped out the front fenders for a set of GM 4wd fenders with the factory flares on them, Goodmark steel cowl hood, smooth wiper cowl panel, and tinted the windows, installed new black housing headlights and LED taillights, put on two different sets of 17" wheels and tires finally stayed with the last set in photo, tires are 225\65\17 on front and 235\65\17 on rear. back inside steel wheel is from a 2010 Chevy the was clearenced to fit on my truck what a pain in the a$$. Take a look at the pictures and let me know what you think.


first set of wheels.




final set of wheels.

Re: Well her she is, finally put her back together, tell me what you think.

bumper and roll pan both are LMC items and surprisingly enough they both fit very well, I did make some extra stiffener brackets for the roll pan but that was just to make me happy.

Thanks LOW1TON,

Looks like a cheap enough up-grade for adding to my list, I'm about sick of cleaning the sand out the grooves of the bumper pads after getting to every show....

I love it. Very clean and well done. I like the way you tied the tinted cab lights in with the rest of it.

That's one sharp dually, one of the best I've seen. I like every change you made, it all blends together very well.

Hey those lowered crewcab duallys look real good but all they have on yours is a back seat. That red roller is nice. Once again I have no need for a dually but I like em.

Very nice. The 4wd fenders make a big difference up front.

I've seen them on eBay. I like the looks of them. They give the blacked out look, but since the actual light reflectors are still chrome, they don't ruin light output like a lot of the ones with smoked lenses or the more retarded ones with black reflectors.

Here's a link to a set: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/95-99...Q5fAccessories
