Introduction: I have had this truck since I was 15 and plan to fill this space with documentation of the progress made along with future progress. I will eventually add to this including exterior and interior but I am in the middle of a motor swap though so I'll start with that . Progress: Front Bumper Cladding - Needs to be cut for a single cab and painted Rear Bumper Interior 3:73's and a Truetrac 6.2L Swap 5/7 Drop Motor Swap: This truck is finally getting the motor swap it deserves. The 4.3L V6 was good while it lasted, but we are on to bigger and better things. A huge thank you goes out to my dad, my cousin, and our shop employee Mike for all the help. Build Specs: Iron 6.0 bored out to 6.2 Complete LS3 rotating assembly Daily-able Cam Will post the rest of the build sheet soon but these are the main goodies. 11/25/2018 - Building the Motor We pieced the motor back together from the machine shop. 12/23/2018 - Pulling the V6 & Dropping the V8 Got the motor dropped in only to find out that it did not turn over when trying to stab the torque converter . Pulled the motor back out and we later found out that the head gaskets we were sent were for a 5.3 by mistake... 12/29/2018 - Dropping the Motor in, Part 2 We were told that we would need to go ahead and use a flywheel with a spacer to go into the V6 torque converter deep enough. After the gaskets were fixed and the motor back in, we found out that the factory V8 flywheel we had previously used was what we needed instead . Motor came BACK out again and flywheel was swapped over. Put the motor in again and finally got everything turning good. Third time is a charm, right? It was after this we ran into a new problem: The "2005 harness" we were given was most likely actually not from a 2005 and I will have to hunt down a new one...
