  1. None of the regular ones look right on the SS due to the added body kit (cladding) - there are custom roll pans specifically for the SS. Look up BSER and DKKUSTOMS for more info. Richard
  2. I'm no expert on them but I'm pretty sure those are both the 149 t-case, compare the tags on each. There may be differences just because the different application. Richard
  3. You try searching car-part dot com for one near you? I just looked and there's a lot of 'em out there, prices all over the board. You're 100% sure it's the transfer case, before spending the bucks? Richard
  4. It's been discussed on some other forums and yeah, pretty sure that Brembo kit is a bolt-on. With a 16" rotor you'd need some good wheel clearance. I'm not sure the 22" Centerlines I've got would even work due to the inside-the-hoop valve stem placement. The wheel itself should clear but I'm worried the valve stem will hit the caliper. Richard
  5. Holy hell man, registration $400/year! I just renewed the wife's silver '06 and my 300 SRT8, $75/each, as well as the $25/ea inspection/smog check. The Intimidator is good for another couple months. At 142K I just had to throw another battery at it, the 4.5-year old Odyssey bit the dust with no warning. In a hurry I improperly diagnosed it as the 3.5-year old was-new-but-Chinesium-AC Delco starter going bad because the battery "looked" OK on the charger, but it must have a weak cell. Threw a starter on it for no good reason, so now I've got a good spare on the shelf.. Surprised the s
  6. Maybe I should part my Intimidator out and stuff the drivetrain into something older. 😉 Just selling the Intimidator-specific parts should pay for the project vehicle to transplant into! Richard
  7. For a 2003 6.0 there appear to be two different GM fan clutches offered; one is for a non-A/C truck (15911779), other is for A/C-equipped (20913877) What brand and part # fan clutches did you try already? If they're other-than-GM they might be an even more universal application and less likely to behave same as original. In the aftermarket lists I sure see a lot of "SEVERE DUTY" listings which makes me think it's gonna sound like a city bus. Richard
  8. I'm on facebook plenty but facebook groups are not a replacement for forums. The search is useless and in general people are bigger assholes on fb to people they don't know, vs. on forums. Go figure! Richard
  9. Looking good.. and I haven't been following, but you're having grille inserts made? Those should be decent sellers Richard
  10. Depends on what matters to you. 2003-2004 are AWD, with the 8.6" 10 bolt rear, and rear disc brakes 2005 had RWD optional with the 9.5" 14 bolt rear, and rear drum brakes, otherwise the AWD was same as 2003-2004 2006 are RWD only with the 9.5" 14 bolt rear, and rear drum brakes, and the "HD" style hood and grille that some like 2007 "classics" are same as 2006 but not many made Options vary across the board and the last couple years it was -somewhat- common to find one every now and then with cloth seats instead of leather; there's some pics here on the site and storie
  11. I sure hope he doesn't, since he was trying to sell them in 2007. Richard
  12. If there's no ticking, clattering, etc. from the engine when it says low oil pressure - the warning is almost surely a failed oil pressure sensor, a somewhat common failure; it's a little tricky to reach in to replace it (pretty much by braille) but the sensor isn't expensive and you can knock it out in less than half an hour. Richard
  13. Seems like a decent price for a driver, a lot of those items are pretty easy/inexpensive to repair. Cluster steppers, front signal housings, tailgate handle, radio, headliner, carpet, not all big deals and a few hundred bucks/couple weekends of work. Dunno about the A/C but could be as simple as a flaky pressure switch or maginally low refrigerant. Anyway good luck on the sale, someone gonna snap it up and have a good truck with a little work. Richard
  14. Temperature sensor is in an assembly called the aspirator; it's behind the grille in the headliner above the driver's head. Got a little fan in there blows cabin air across a temperature sensor. Richard
  15. There's minimal difference between that and the stock 275/55/20. Exact measurements will vary a little depending on brand and model of tire, but: 275/55/20 = 31.9" high, 10.83" wide 285/45/22 = 32.1" high, 11.22" wide I'm running them on my RWD '06 SS at stock height with zero issues. Richard
