    list

    I think they went the way of the Dodo. Our trucks are getting old....but really cool! Mine won't be on the list. It got a tune. That's all it's going to get.
  6. How did you dyno an AWD on a RWD dyno? Just wondering...

    Traded in the SS

    I know how you feel. I've only had mine for 7 months. I'm attached, but it's for sale too.

    What did you do to your SS today?

    THIS WEEK: Got a new windshield (cracked). Shined her up. Conditioned the leather. Replaced rear jounce bumpers with new GM ones.

    SSS Is Not A Truck

    It's an awesome, head turning, beast looking truck. It's a rocking' ride! Does all the showy stuff well. I love it, just need something with a little more butt!

    SSS Is Not A Truck

    Food for the trolls..... :-) If you look at the curb weight of the SS truck and the advertised GVW, the half ton truck will (should) haul a lot more than 1/2 ton (1,000#). I load the 1/2 ton trucks at work every day to maximum GVW (plus), and they handle a 2,000# payload with relative ease, that doesn't make them a one ton truck. Right now, my 2500HD work truck (3/4 ton, 1,500#) has a 3,000# engine in the back with 1.5" between the axle and the bump stop. That doesn't mean it's ton-and-a-half truck. It does mean it will haul the advertised payload, plus a lot to spare. Chevrolet flat out lied to the public, as they were trying to make their SS truck look more appealing than the competition (Ram SRT10 and the Ford Lightning), when it comes to "work". While Dodge and Ford accurately lowered their GVW rating on their "sport" trucks, Chevy didn't. The factory lowered suspension, will not haul a load, like their regular (non lowered) suspension. I'm not a nubie, I do trucks for a living. I assume full responsibility for not doing my homework, and actually testing a SSS before buying it, to haul an occasional "light" load. Buyers remorse, I should have never sold the Dodge! If I just wanted a "pretty", I would just cruised around Sundays in my 1965 Malibu SS.

    It’s for sale if you’re serious.

    SSS Is Not A Truck

    I had a Dodge Diesel, and thought I didn't need it. Only making "occasional" hauling trips...surely a muscular beast like the SSS would be up to the task.....NOT!

    Who here has a salvage/rebuilt truck?

    I've had rebuilt title vehicles in the past. Had Safeco Ins. at the time. Never an issue getting them insured. only problem would be, if you had a wreck. I'm sure they would LOW-BALL you in the event of a total loss.....
