  1. Selling my Time2Kill Nvg149 4L80E input gear adapter. This is a brand new OEM input gear never been installed. I ordered this from GM Parts Direct then sent it to Time2Kill to be machined.. Just sat on the shelf in my garage. Going to charge what he charges for the machine work plus five bucks for the shipping. Price is $490.00 shipped to your door. Paypal only friends and family or add 3% to cover fees. Thanks for looking.

    Replacing the rear license bulbs

    It is a colossal bitch. The spring clip is on the side closest to the tag. Grab the side closest to the tag and push in as hard as you can and they swing out so to speak towards the corners of the bumpers. You are gonna have to push till you think your fingers are gonna break. They are held in by a spring clip type thing on the inside edge. Easiest way to do it is to cup it with your hand, put the heal of your palm on the the back side and squeeze in with your whole hand with all your might

    Tag light housing/bezel replacement?

    I just wound up buying some oem textured black ones off amazon. Sanded the textreme off myself and had them painted. Came out really nice. Wasn't that bad to sand the texture off either.

    Settle a Bet

    Okay.....not so much of a bet, but more of an argument. My friend recently purchased an Arrival Blue 04 SS. To date his mods are as follows, Longtubes, catless y pipe, shift kit, servos, tru cool 40k, Blackbear Tune, e fans, and just finished up the TBSS intake manifold swap with 36lb flex fuel injectors. He is now wanting to do a camshaft. I told him I thought a good all around off the shelf cam for his purposes would be a BTR Stage 3 truck, or the Vinci Trucker low lift. He found a local who stabbed a Howards Rattler cam in a 5.3. The specs on the Rattler are 226/234 at 050, with a 109 lobe separation angle. He is just wanting to do a 2800 or 3k stall. I think that cam is going to be overkill for that truck. He essentially wants it for sound. Do you guys agree that the Howards cam would be a bad decision? I know some of you run larger cams.

    Tag light housing/bezel replacement?

    No doubt that they are a bitch to remove, that being said, one has to know what they are doing. Can't just go to jerking. I've had to pull a few off a long time ago when I worked at oreillys to change some. Quick google search remedied that.
  8. Well guys, johnny law recently informed me that i have a tag light out. Got home and had some spare 194 led bulbs that I had planned on sticking in eventually. Searched the forum on tips to remove them as I could not get my fingers in from the back side. So i followed the procedure I found posted. Pulled in from the side closest to the tag and nothing budged, eventually got one started. I couldn't get it any further, but could see the spring clip. So I took my flat head and wrapped it heavily in electrical tape and started prying gently. Eventually it popped free in pieces. Come to find out it had been glued in with some type of black epoxy. I had the bumper re-painted about this time last year. I guess they couldn't figure out how to get them out and just destroyed them in the process. The other side I can see from the inside of the bumper with a flashlight is epoxied in as well. The body shop is a reputable one in my area, not to name drop so to speak, but they painted Dominator and Monza's cars from Street Outlaws (I know that is in not correlated with how good they are at disassembly, but the paint looks flawless). I haven't contacted them yet to see what there thoughts on the matter are, but I get the feeling like there isn't a whole lot they can do as GM no longer produces that part and I haven't been able to locate any online. Will the black textured ones for a non SS bumper fit or are the SS ones specific to that model? Any help or opinions is greatly appreciated.
  9. In search of some tag light housings/bezels, doesnt matter on the color, they can be painted. Hit me up if you have some.
  10. Just my opinion on this, I am by no means an expert, but I would figure your G80 took a crap on you. It really isn't the best piece of the puzzle in the rear end. Id look into a set of OEM gears for it if the gears got chewed up and a TrueTrac or Eaton Posi LSD. I have used Richmond and Motive gears in a couple of past builds, the Richmond whined like crazy, Motive werent bad. Might consider doing a TA girdle with the stud kit. Should be good as gold with those parts. I am also in the same boat as EXGM and do not trust myself to do gear installs so Ive always used the same local shop.

    Tailgate upgrades

    Tailgates in my area disappear left and right. I think they have become some sort of currency for thieves and meth heads. Will definitely be ordering one of the jimmi jammers soon.
  12. I think you guys (and my wife) have me talked into keeping it. While I will say the single cabs hold a special place in my heart, I dont want to take the hit on trading it in. I can usually substantiate keeping it by going out and driving it. I am currently in the process of re-building my 250r with a 363 sphinx engine, so I do have other side projects to keep me busy. If I didnt have a pile of money tied up in the 250r trying to get ready for dune season, Id heavily consider making a trip to DFW and buying 1BAD2K's blower, but Im fixing to shell out around 2500 for the R's engine package. I also know Ill get raped come tax time by Uncle Sam, so no extra money there lol. To top it all off I am at the mercy of the oilfield with my job, so I am trying to save up a pile of money before we inevitably go bust again. Do me a favor gentleman, when your children ask for advice on what they should do when they grow up, tell them to go get a computer related degree of some sort and they will be set for life.
  13. Probably what I will do. Cant decide between a custom grind or an off the shelf. Im tempted heavily by an off shelf grind such as the Vinci Trucker or BTR Stage 3 Truck cam to use in the truck until I go forced induction, then I would get a custom grind blower cam, and yank the off the shelf cam and sell it to someone else. Used off the shelf grinds sell really well in my area.
  14. Quote by my wife, "Tough sh*t honey, I like my heated power seat......and its soooo pretty." Her suggestion was to keep it forever like I had planned, then after we get into a house and get settled, to save up and buy a single cab if I really want one. She thinks that if I supercharge it eventually I wont care about getting another single cab which is probably right. I think she is a keeper lol
  15. Oil changes always done on time by me, guy I bought it off of serviced it like no one Id ever seen before. First transmission filter change was done at 25,000 then at 75,000. At 118,000 I serviced the whole truck, front and rear diffs, transfer case, new pads and rotors all the way around. Truck also has dual electric fans, Blackbear EFI Live Tune, Longtubes, Corsa sport, Shift kit with servos, TBSS intake swap with flex fuel injectors, Volant cai, and the truck has had a Trucool 40K since around 50000 miles added by the previous owner. I have a Time2kill input gear adapter sitting on the shelf, and a 4l80e core in the storage shed. I guess my next step would be a cam or get busy rebuilding that 80e.
