  1. I was going to post this in suspension but figured its more of a general question so I chose here instead. The 2/4 was great until the other weekend another single cab with a 4/6 drop on chrome SS wheels parked next to me and made my 2/4 look like a stock height truck ... I was shooting for a 4/7 so it would sit level but my friend kept telling me 5/8 it. First I thought he is crazy, but the more I thought about it how much worse could it be than driving a 4/7? I'm sure by doing this it will actually sit two inces lower rather than 1 like you would think because of the tire downsize, but I've never seen a truck 5/8 in person to know how low it really is. So I figure I would ask for you guys opinion, I've already priced kits out and am ready to make a purchase. I just don't wanna go 4/7 and wish I went lower or go 5/8 and hate life because I scrape going over every bump in the road. I just want to be as low as I can be and still daily drive it, I drive on the highway and out of town some too so keep in mind I may hit some nasty dips going 75 mph lol. Let me know what you guys think! Here's a picture of the guy parked next to me, 4/6 drop on 275/45/20s, I'm 2/4 on 285/50/20.

    WTB: SS Rear Bumper

    I finally managed to score a set of cladding with all of the brackets for the single cab, unfortunately the seller had already sold the bumper. I am looking for a rear bumper in good shape with the brackets to mount it. Let me know what you have, thanks!

    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

    Will repopulate this thread shortly! I tried to delete this one temporarily but had no luck.

    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.
  7. 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 UPDATE!

    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.

    Silverado SS grill 200 shipped

    @Isegura was looking for one I believe.

    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.
  14. 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.

    WTB: SS Rear Bumper

    Near San Angelo rught now but go up towards the DFW area a lot! @matslp448 Thank you! I'd really like to find one with the plastic pads and all but if I can't find any this may have to work.

    Ceramic coated now

    Looks amazing, curious if there is anywhere local to me who does this kinda stuff.
  21. Anybody have a front bumper laying around? Preferably oem, my streetscene one always bothered me. Reason I ask is a horse trailer in my town ripped into mine yesterday and drove off, I am devastated . I know it will need brackets as well but I will take what I can get. Let me know! Thanks. - Edit - Last week somebody backed into my front bumper, AGAIN . I talked to the body shop who will be doing the work and they printed off an estimate but told me it would be cheaper for me to find a complete one rather than them buy one from the dealership, so I'd appreciate it if anyone could get to me with a front bumper cover, any of the brackets, ducts, silver grills, etc. Thank you so much! Have their insurance cash in hand ready to buy if I can get a good deal, if not I suppose I will be buying a new one.. Lol.

    Photoshop skills?

    This is users BLAZE3's truck that I used as the base. I believe he is dropped 2/4~ and on 22s (SS Reps), I scaled the billet wheels to match that size best I could. Kinda a rough render, it is really hard to photoshop billets due to the reflections and the width of the wheel. Hope it helps!

    Photoshop skills?

    I will try and get a render, stock height or lowered? I may have made the wheels a bit too big again, like I said it is a bit hard to scale haha. Hope this is what you were looking for.

    Photoshop skills?

    Sure, can you link me to which ones? I am running across multiple models when looking into them.

    Photoshop skills?

    Here is a quick render I came up with shortly. If you want a better one let me know, this one is not perfect by any means. The wheels in this may be more accurate to 24's rather than 22's, it is kinda hard to judge how big a wheel will be in photoshop unless it is the same size as the ones currently on the vehicle.
