  1. I haven't had any issues with mine
  2. Finally out enjoying this thing!
  3. Back together! Aside from the rear bumper I didn't have time to put on. First I POR15'd the brackets for the cladding Made sure to test fit everything before I drill any holes I felt bad drilling into these nice clean rockers haha But I did make sure to spray lots of rust proofing in the holes even though it will never see salt All riveted back on Back together! ?? backed it out of the garage to see if outside
  4. Sooooo much work has gone into this truck recently. I knew the rockers and cab corners needed attention but after taking a closer look one day i realized they were much much worse than I had thought.. So that meant it was time to get them done. I was hoping not to have to do this so soon but I can't leave it like this. Major dismantling Old junk cut out The inner rockers were toast too All the old junk out New inners going in New outer rockers on All painted! Too bad thi
  5. Yes I have and they work just as advertised! I would defiantly recommend them! I got my 06 lower grilles in yesterday to officially finish the front end swap Before With the K Designs lower Honeycomb grille Then I cleaned the air ducts really good and replaced the inserts with the OEM Honeycomb ones
  6. Thanks! I can't wait to see all of them on in spring! I got alot done over the last couple weeks! I finished the headliner. I also ordered the full corsa exhaust. I had the custom made side exit for awhile but I never was in love with it, but this Corsa kit is amazing! Then I got some diesel led front LED switch back turn signal bulbs. The best thing about them is they have a build in resistor so there is no need to chop up the factory wiring! https://dieselleds.com/collections/chevy-2500-3500-1999-2007/products/lumenex-switchback I also got a K Designs 3D
  7. Thanks! Unfortunately I haven't had time to finish it yet I because I came down with COVID. But yesterday I did test fit a wheel and I cannot wait to see them all on come spring!
  8. Started the headliner repair. I was able to find some suede that closely matches the stock color Typical sagging Took me awhile to scrape off all of the old glue. But be carful not to damage the fiberglass headliner New material all laid out! I'll let it dry for a few days before I re install everything. I also still have to re cover the sun visors.
  9. https://www.ebay.com/itm/18PCS-White-LED-Interior-License-Light-Package-Kit-For-Chevy-Silverado-1999-2006/252008749683?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649 They are great quality especially for the price! They are 22x10s. Not sure on tires yet I'm going with 285/45/22 based on what I've read. Thanks!
  10. OH YES? I've dreamed of these wheels since I got the truck, now just have to wait for spring
  11. Well, she's put away for winter ? But now that means its time for more upgrades! I installed a pioneer double din with android auto which I really love and a 10in Rockford P1 with a box made to fit under the seat. This was my first go around at car audio and I think it came out pretty good! Next its time to fix the saggy headliner
  12. I got an interior LED package from Ebay. It makes a huge difference! Then I got a 05 Trailblazer airbag swapped in and I ordered the "ss" horn decal with the proper font. Just waiting for that to come in. http://www.motorcityvinyl.com/silverado-circle-emblem/
  13. Thanks! I am planning on getting replica chrome 22's and refinishing the headliner (which is next) I went to the scrap yard yesterday and got some trim parts to dye when I plan to recover the headliner in suede. I got the spares in case it doesn't turn out Here is what I plan to use, from my research this should be a match (or very very close) to the factory dark pewter Here is what I want the end result to be.
  14. I just love how this thing sits
  15. I agree, I have never used it before but I will be from now on! I finished this weekend. I also installed the shorter bump stops to accommodate for the drop kit
  16. I started cleaning and painting the frame. I used Eastwood Rust Encapsulator Plus and its come out great so far!
  17. To answer your questions; It handles slightly better I want to eventuality do a bigger front sway bar and a rear sway bar. The right is just as smooth as stock but I did get the correct drop shocks for it. Slight ribbing on full lock with stock wheel/tire combo but very minor. Overall extremely happy with it. Detailed it all up yesterday
  18. Thanks! I too do like a bit lower but being AWD I was worried about running into issues. If it was a 2wd I would have gone lower. The rear sits about a half inch higher I believe its like that from the factory although I completely forgot to measure before I installed the kit.
  19. I got the 2/2 drop in! Here are some quick pics. She needs a good detail!
  20. I got the rear end all squared away yesterday. New axel seals,brake backing plates, wire wheeled and painted the housing and new pads and rotors. Next is the drop kit!
  21. Thats very cool! They made them supercharged for only 2 years in the SS trim 04 and 05. I've had the car since I was 17, I won't ever get rid of it haha. I got some more goodies for the truck! Full belltech 2in drop kit,brakes all around,new rear backing plates (mine are rusted) and since I have to remove the axels to so those I will replace the seals at the same time.
  22. Thank you! It is the stock engine from my 2004 Impala SS
  23. The AWD SS has dual rear piston and RWD has signal to my understanding. There is only 1 dual rear option. Dual piston is 330mm rotors single is 335mm
  24. I recently bought a new house so the SSS has been put to work! But of course after a long day of hauling she got a good detail
