Re: crew cab showcase

Not much to see yet (Project: Spot). Biggest visual changes so far since purchase:

* Swapping damaged sheet metal w/wrecking yard replacements (SWB bed, rear pass door)
* Swapping out the work-damaged tail gate w/a new/take-off gate from C-list
* Yanking the stained STINKY carpet
* Swapping the 60/40 front bench for buckets/console from a Tahoe
* Getting all new exterior lighting plastics + F/R smooth bumpers (no impact strips)

I have accumulated all the parts & will start maintenance related mods soon:

* Front end rebuild w/Moog parts, Belltech drop spindles, & Bilstiens.
* Belltech rear flip + c-notches, new axle seals, rebuild brakes, & Bilstiens.
* New wheels/tires in staggered widths.

Eventually it will get 2-linked w/bags. I have the parts just not the time to get it done (like I want) right away.

Here is my 99 C2500 short bed thanks to hurricane Michael depositing my neighbor's tree on it. I've talked with my insurance but told them I wasn't ready to have it looked at cause I still need it to move debris. I'm sure it will be totaled and I'll have to fight for its actual worth. I'd love just to replace it but I don't seem to see many 1999/2000 C/K2500 short beds for sale. If it doesn't violate the board rules, I'd be curious to know what you paid for your truck SCOTI.

I purchased mine below market value but there was reason behind it.

I'm pretty sure the previous owner bought it for an easy flip after swapping in a fresh 5.7l long-block but was in over his head w/all the electronics of the later model (he'd done several older GM cars/trucks; this was the newest he said he'd messed with). You had to pop the hood & use a remote starting switch + jump it off just to get it started. Once running, it had zero power & couldn't get out of it's own way so there was no real way to determine if it was a good or bad deal drivetrain wise (it couldn't/wouldn't go fast enough to get on the highway to test the OD trans ).

I gambled on it. After sorting through things (grounds, wiring, battery, o2 sensors, more grounds, & fuel INJ. system), it's been pretty a decent truck so far (I've only had it since June 2017). The 1st time I was able to get it on the highway @ speed, it was apparent the front end needed attention.

In the end, I got a 'rare' factory 130k mile CCswb 5.7l/4l80e combo w/a fresh, zero miles 5.7 for what the 250k mile, single cab, swb, 4.3/5spd, no-carpet truck I was driving sold for.
