Yes. My old truck originally had the 2-tone fade paint often found on conversion trucks. The color in that pic is the factory top color, which was indigo blue metallic. It had a 5" drop up front using spindles/springs, & the rear was 8" drop with flip kit, shackles, & C-notch.

Thanks. I thought it looked like Indigo since that is the color I am painting my 85 short bed. I am thinking about looking at a 93 step side and I like the stance on this one.

Cool. That one was a '93 as well. It was a great truck over the 9+ years I owned it.

Re: Show lowered 88-98 trucks

Nice truck m00n1957, I really like the headlights in that grille and the gauges! Is that an original 454 truck? What trans do you have in it?

i would never carve up an original. i always wanted an original but never found one i could afford so i made me one like i thought chevy should have made one. the late grills looked best to me and i always loved black-on-chrome instead of blacked-out so thats the reason for the chrome front and the headlights give it a "mean" kinda look in that grill. this one was born with a 4.3, i'm running the nv3500 5 speed for now, when it dies i have a turbo 400. it cruises at 70 at 2000 rpm in 5th so i'm happy with the trans for now. i always hated the moon guages so i fixed that too. 702 closed heads, comp 268 extreme energy cam, 750 edelbrock (for now). thanks.

Looks great! Maybe I'm a bit biased considering I owned one, but those reg. cab short/step trucks are pretty sweet when done right.
