The cluster pictured is most certainly not pre 95.


Always nice to come up with spare parts!

i didnt realize they were that close with the bezel removed, i would have pictured a more curved surround.

It's already in my truck too. There must be something amiss with my original cluster. It didn't have any lights working when I bought it and after changing them out I still didn't have any. I swapped clusters and it lights up like a blue Christmas tree now.

I've ran my cable back and mounted the camera. Going to have to pull the radio and dbl check the connections, it goes to the backup screen when I put it in reverse, but I dont have a picture.
I mounted the bumper on first, obviously, modifying the original brackets so I could use the extra two bolts for my hitch. Changed out the license plate bulbs with led light while I was at it.
I still have to decide on the lights to use in my front bumper and find a factory auxiliary switch to use too.
My plan is still to finish up the few more things I need to do before I swap engines.
Its getting there.

Camera was an easy fix. Apparently I needed to hook the power up directly to the power terminal under the hood. Once I did that I had a camera.
I'm going to center the bed up and bolt it up today, still just has 2 bolts in it, and button up a few things before starting on my front bumper lights.
I threw the sunset gmt400 pic just to brighten everyone's day!

Time for another medical post. A lifetime in the great outdoors should include a big straw hat, long sleeve shirt, and sunscreen apparently. Had a basal cell carcinoma cut off today. I did get home in time to clean and install the truck storage box I picked up last week, however, with the heat still on around here I didn't really do much else today.
Cover up out there folk and if you notice a spot that bleeds for no reason, even if it doesn't resemble what you typically picture as skin cancer, get it checked!

Re: 97 3500 454 4x4 project

Off nights this morning and had a chance to check out the pick and pull. I scored a fog light switch with the pigtail, a 3/4 ton jack plus all the accessories, and an ash tray for the back for 12 bucks.
They had a set of Escalade panels minus the drivers side I thought about, but didn't know how hard that would be to find or the switch inserts that were gone.
The steering wheel was there, but less than stellar.
