    WTB: SS Rear Bumper

    I'm afraid you are probably right . Currently debating if it will be cheaper to buy a new one or to buy a used one and have it repaired. Do you have any ideas on what you would want for yours and what kind of work it would require?

    2007 SS Clone

    The hood is the standard 06/07 hood. My grille is a painted standard 06/07 but if you go for the 03-05 style the mesh is unique to the SS trucks. You could most likely find the bumper cover and the brackets on here or on Facebook marketplace, I see a lot of parts go around there.

    2007 SS Clone

    Introduction: I have had this truck since I was 15 and plan to fill this space with documentation of the progress made along with future progress. I will eventually add to this including exterior and interior but I am in the middle of a motor swap though so I'll start with that . Progress: Front Bumper Cladding - Needs to be cut for a single cab and painted Rear Bumper Interior 3:73's and a Truetrac 6.2L Swap 5/7 Drop Motor Swap: This truck is finally getting the motor swap it deserves. The 4.3L V6 was good while it lasted, but we are on to bigger and better things. A huge thank you goes out to my dad, my cousin, and our shop employee Mike for all the help. Build Specs: Iron 6.0 bored out to 6.2 Complete LS3 rotating assembly Daily-able Cam Will post the rest of the build sheet soon but these are the main goodies. 11/25/2018 - Building the Motor We pieced the motor back together from the machine shop. 12/23/2018 - Pulling the V6 & Dropping the V8 Got the motor dropped in only to find out that it did not turn over when trying to stab the torque converter . Pulled the motor back out and we later found out that the head gaskets we were sent were for a 5.3 by mistake... 12/29/2018 - Dropping the Motor in, Part 2 We were told that we would need to go ahead and use a flywheel with a spacer to go into the V6 torque converter deep enough. After the gaskets were fixed and the motor back in, we found out that the factory V8 flywheel we had previously used was what we needed instead . Motor came BACK out again and flywheel was swapped over. Put the motor in again and finally got everything turning good. Third time is a charm, right? It was after this we ran into a new problem: The "2005 harness" we were given was most likely actually not from a 2005 and I will have to hunt down a new one...
  4. My truck is a 2007 classic (03-06 body style) single cab silverado. We are converting it to a v8 and have got the motor bolted up to the 4l60e with the v6 converter using a 5.3 flywheel. We got a harness off a guy who claims it came from an 05 silverado. Whenever we started running the harness, we realized that there was nothing there for the electrical fans. After further examining the V6 harness, we realized that it also has a module that looks like some sort of alternator control module. I believe that the sole purpose of this is for the electrical fans?Alternator control module wiring:V6 harness plugs that are missing on the V8 (One goes to fans and other goes to the module):Would I be better off getting a proper harness for a 2006/2007 with electric fans or are the harnesses identical other than the alternator plug and the pinning for the fans (meaning I can pull them off the V6?Also, are all of the harnesses off of any 06-07 2wd 4l60e going to be identical?

    Tire Size On 4/6 Drop

    I tried 275/45/20 on my 5/7 drop and the front wheels wouldn't turn in the fenders but at 4/6 they probably would have cleared. I now run a 275/40/20 on the stock SS wheel. This tool will probably help you as you can see how tall your tire is getting. https://tiresize.com/calculator/

    WTB: SS Rear Bumper

    Still on the hunt for one of these in good shape. I have yet to see one that wouldn't need some sort of body work other than just paint

    American racing headers

    How is fitment and did you ever figure out if they were the 3/4 or 7/8? Curious what the differences are from the TSP over these since I have been looking at both brands a lot lately.

    2/2 drop

    You will either have to drop the rear 2" or do a 2/4 drop for it to sit level. I used the Mcgaughys kit when I dropped my single cab 2/4 before I went lower.
  11. There was a brief write up by Timmy on gmfullsize years back if I remember right. - Edit - Found the link for you: https://www.gmfullsize.com/threads/how-to-manual-to-oem-power-windows-03-07.121472/

    Turbo build

    I have heard good things about KP and Trick turbo, I bet that they would sell the manifolds separately if that is what you are looking for. I'm sure others will chime in who know more about it as well.

    Help with sale price

    If you decide to sell it I'd love to see some pictures. My dad has been looking for a really clean one in TX and might be interested.

    2004 AWD Drop

    I think it will be fine on AWD if you go somewhere around a 2/4 drop. My single cab is lowered around 5/7 and I daily it but it's 2wd.
