  1. I've heard of a just one guy and he said it fit good, but I would say there is all ways so modification with aftermarket cladding.
  2. Mine is at 143,000 and the only thing that is a problem is in the winter the gauges need to be reset, this is a common grounding issue with GM trucks of these years. Moisture from sitting a week or so with no heat in cab makes it go to French language. I guest if thats the only problem I can handle it.
  3. Bought mine new in 2003, I'm at 144,000 now.
  4. I have a set of the door long brackets let me see if I have the other, I’ll check tomorrow.
  5. I know, I check about once every two weeks and have some topics come to my email. Yes alot of info here.
  6. Good to hear from you Ray, mine are running good, I have the shortbox for sale. alot of guys want it but no money in hand yet. My clear coat has started to peel, parked outside all the time. I will try to get a re-paint this year. Clay
  7. Man that a clean 2004. Mine was looking that good but clear is starting to peel.
  8. I guess this site has officially died when I'm was the only member logged in.
  9. Read this topic, if it sits for a few days moisture cause the grounds to not make good enough contact. I have added double grounds and cleaned up the connections. Works most of the time but every once an awhile it happens.
  10. Taken out of the box for photos never installed. $400 plus shipping. Comes with the Bowtie. I'm in Washington State if you want to pick up.
  11. I have a 06 SS grille, oem new never installed with bowtie. $400 plus shipping. If not I will post in the for sale section soon. Thanks
  12. I did everything at once and pulled the wheels, new spark plugs, new shocks, greased the fittings, added the Arraid filter and snorkel. and cleaned.
  13. The ss clone, repainted the front bumper cover and some of the side cladding, replaced hood latch, add hose clamps. On the 03 SS I did all the fluid changes in the drivetrain, replace the oil sensor, it was malfunctioned and leaking.
  14. Anyone have drivers cladding in black, in nice shape no damage. And a passenger front bed cladding in black. Or trade a red front bed for a black front bed cladding. Also a long shot would be a nice front bumper cover in black. Anyone used Sameday on eBay?
  15. Thats good news, mine has had a couple of times the gauges didn't work. This is a grounding issue not a gauge issue. So I added more grounding strap from the negative post to the engine block. And this summer I will clean up all the grounding frame connections. Post some pic of the 59. I'm doing a 68 charger. I'll try to post some pics.
  16. Working on my other projects just don't have time to drive. Up for sale, I know I'm asking alot but try to put one together. Needs paint. https://seattle.craigslist.org/oly/cto/d/olympia-chevy-truck-c10shortbox/6873367304.html
  17. If I remember there is a plastic coating over the top, I have never tried to peel it off I just replaced them with new and used there bad one in the winter.
  18. Did you get out a beat his ass?
  19. Hello, happy new year to you, do you still have your SS?
  20. I think you can pull the fuse, but I wanted to be sure it was completely disconnected, but if you know you have a bad cluster that the first place to start. If you read my other thread about reduce power problems I'm having as, I'm going to be doing the Big 3 also and adding more ground straps. This spring I will clean and recoat all my ground connections.
  21. Shawn, mine did something similar, I did the same and pulled the radio fuse and it seemed that was the problem, then it came back and it is probably in the cluster, take apart the dash and unplug the cluster for a few days to see it goes away. If it does you will need your cluster rebuilt. I had gmgaugeguy.com rebuild mine and now no problems. I've read all kind of threads on here and the other truck forums and that seem like the more likely suspect. Clay
  22. I've looked a these, how was the fit?
  23. I use a 7mm ratchet wrench. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00UBG4WMU/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  24. So after this happen I've clean off the grounding connection up under the headlights, and the motor to firewall, and the code has not come back but when I let my truck sit for a few days and I start it up the cluster is in the other languages, and I have to reset it. For the last month its been wet and probably condensation on connections. This spring I will add other ground connections and check the throttle connection.
