  2. Long time no updates! Just have been enjoying the truck! It is put away for the winter to I intend to do a few things to it. First of which is a Trans cool 40k cooler which I installed yesterday. So much bigger than the stock cooler Also looks super cool behind the grille!

  3. The drive train for the SS was taken from the Cadillac Escalade. I don't know what tweaks were done, but it would be a good place to start for junkyard parts.

  4. Fenders are the same but inspect them really well if you’re going to grab them from the junkyard. Beds are also the same just has to be 6.5ft. Just don’t throw anything away from the old stuff to see where you have to install rivets for the cladding. Your tough part is going to be someone willing to do the rockers. I sold my old ss because no shop around me wanted to do it

  8. That's perfect! No, not going for perfection, just to minimize the effect on the rubbers. Thank you so much; you saved me a ton of hassle re-assembling and then dropping off jacks only to disassemble again. It was a multi-jack operation already to get it where it sits now. Again, thank you very much!

  9. That would be an Intimidator SS spoiler (or repro) missing the bed corner pieces. Rare as rocking horse shit.. I mean, the repro's are out there, quality is so-so. Original parts - good luck Richard

  10. I came across these Rough Country wheel well liners online . I have always thought the rear wheel well looked unfinished and these make it look great! https://www.roughcountry.com/chevrolet-rear-wheel-well-liners-4299.html?gclid=CjwKCAiA3L6PBhBvEiwAINlJ9AWhTYQ0aFvstANnCoxpZfklTzsZRO-1CnHfDMtnoXX4RoR-74CGlhoCMS0QAvD_BwE Before, kind of unfinished looking in my opinion. I also made sure to put a thick layer of Fluid Film behind them. Not that this truck will ever see salt but it can't hurt Installed! Looks fantastic!

  12. I ran into this issue recently when I bought 22s reps.. my oem caps wouldn’t Clip into the rep wheels so what I did was put some electrical tape around each tab on the oem caps and then put them on… they have stayed on so far after a few months already.. other option would be to use a torch and heat up each tab and bend them out a bit until they can grab onto the clip ring on the wheel… I also have the 20s oem wheels on my single cab and I decided to put the replica caps on those… for replica caps on oem wheels, all u gotta do is trim off some plastic around the tabs on the rep cap and those do Clip onto the oem wheels..👍🏼

  13. You didn't get a spare fob/key when you purchased the truck? I doubt there's any other route being a new model truck. Especially if it a keyless start vehicle. Best of luck man.

  15. Can anyone steer me in the direction of this? I have a 2003 silverado ss so it has the awd transfer case. I did all the fluids a couple years ago and would like to do them again. Front and rear diff - 75w90 (couldn't remember 2-4 quarts?) Transmission- universal ATF? How much? I used the bg stuff last time AWD transfer case- for the life of me I can't find what type is needed. I thought i used royal purple synchromax last time. 2 quarts? I want to have everything ready to go so I can do it all the same day. Thanks for info in advance

  16. Yeah for sures... intimidator parts are crazy expensive now... there’s even a guy now wanting to raffle headrests, cluster and emblems on that SS clones page.. he plans to do $100 a ticket and 100 tickets to sell... so he wants to make 10k for those things lol

  18. Update. I got the Black Bear Performance EFILive AutoCal. Black Bear tuned it and made a huge difference. They did a great Job with the tuning. Then I installed the full speed engineering dual 3" exhaust with headers. Hated it ! Tooo loud and lost major low end torque. I changed it up using a single 3" pipe and much happier with the sound vs dual 3"s. Still lost some low end torque but I have no cats now and it is flowing way more then the previous exhaust. Put in bigger injectors recommended after the tune to help the stage 2 cam. Waiting on Black Bear Performance to help me get it re-tuned. The current tune is not liking the 42Lb marine injectors at all or the exhaust swap.

  20. Back together! Aside from the rear bumper I didn't have time to put on. First I POR15'd the brackets for the cladding Made sure to test fit everything before I drill any holes I felt bad drilling into these nice clean rockers haha But I did make sure to spray lots of rust proofing in the holes even though it will never see salt All riveted back on Back together! ?? backed it out of the garage to see if outside

  22. Started the headliner repair. I was able to find some suede that closely matches the stock color Typical sagging Took me awhile to scrape off all of the old glue. But be carful not to damage the fiberglass headliner New material all laid out! I'll let it dry for a few days before I re install everything. I also still have to re cover the sun visors.

  24. Well, if you have the budget, I can highly recommend a supercharger I have had the Magnacharger Radix on my truck since new and it really wakes up the truck. I think they don't make this exact Radix now, but a redesigned version is on their website.

  25. I’ve remained quite about this issues for a while until I could get more info. While I’ve sold many brackets and had a ton of positive feedback, it bothers me someone wasn’t happy and got poor results. Well, it’s taken a while to get to the bottom of it but I believe I know the reason why Proatv13 had the issue he had. He explained how he bled his brakes and that he “didn’t know what a Tech 2 scan tool is”. This is a huge red flag. With modern day vehicles, if air gets trapped in the ABS pump, you can have the best brakes in the world but they will be mushy and soft if air is trapped in the lines. I’ve watched seasoned car guys chase their tails trying to fix the same exact problem not realizing their mistake. This is exactly why I specifically mentioned it in the how to I wrote. With a Tech2 or equivalent scan tool, the ABS pump can be cycled while bleeding the system. Skipping this crucial step can trap air bubbles in your system. To my knowledge nobody else has had this issue but if you have experienced anything similar to Proatv13 have your system bled with a Tech2 or equivalent scan tool.

  27. Still doing good I guess the truck is getting to the age (150k) where odds and ends need repair. Had to replace the steering gearbox recently. On my third transmission rebuild now 😕 Broke the input shaft somehow. I have been getting it repainted on the installment program. One accident at a time. just got rear ended a few months ago. Minor bumper damage to me, trashed the front end of the mini van that did not stop in time. But that got me the bumper, tailgate and right rear quarter repainted. But it is getting expensive to keep, between the gas prices here in California to the $400+ registration each year.
