I really love how that looks. Where did you get the skin? I'd definitely like to go that route if I can find one cheap enough. Still havent bought anything. Picked up a new daily and been messing with it so the truck has been waiting.

I just went back and looked and evidently the seller changed the price since I bought mine. the skin alone now is $290

Here is a complete rear bumper with brackets and all. you'd just need new plastic pads for it. It has free shipping

That's not bad. I'm sure plastics would be pretty cheap on like rock auto or something. I'll check into it, thanks bro!

Oof. Been a while fellas.

Still have the ole crew cab. Gathering parts for some upgrades here soon. Just picked up a Reklez 2pc driveshaft crossmember, ihc control arm kit to finally get rid of this camber, and a set of 2019 ram 22s.

Ended up trading the bmw to Gannon for his blue rcsb. So thats in the fleet now and gets driven way more than the black truck. Lolol.

As far as the blue truck goes...since I got it I've added a billet steering wheel, caddilac xts rear view mirror, new fogs, led headlights/fogs, escalade antenna delete cowl piece, and as of a couple of days ago a new water pump/thermostat.

Picture dump just because....

Mas.

Did some editing to see how the ram wheels will look. They'll end up on the black truck but I'm sure I'll swap them around occasionally. Plan is to run the 20s from the silverado on the blue truck once the 22s are ready to go.

BTW I have a set of 285/45/22 Goodyears for sale. Approx 10k miles.

Loveee that little blue truck. Now that I look more, the ram wheels really look good on the black truck and the silvy 20s really look killer on the blue truck

So I sold the 285/45s last week. I got the ram 22s with goodyears for $350. Sold just the tires for $300 and then bought a basically brand new set of 265/35s from Wesley for $400.

Got them mounted and balanced yesterday and decided to throw them on the blue truck for a while.

meh, think its better on the polished wheels.
I agree. Im not crazy about the 22s on this truck. I'm gonna get the tires swapped between the 2 sets of 20s soon and throw the silverado 20s on the blue truck. Trying to get the black truck into the shop asap to get the 2pc driveshaft installed. Then the 22s will go on it.

Been a while. Added another one to the fleet. Bone stock 2000 c5 z51. Made some pretty good progress with it in the 2 months I've had it.

C6 wheels, axle back exhaust, Hurst short throw, demolded, updated emblems, clear parking lights, lowered on vms bolts, tint and a few other small things.

Really happy with the car so far. Been dailying it pretty much since I got it. 20210204_122746.jpg20201203_073244.jpg20201203_073253.jpg

New wheels....again

Really digging this setup. Traded the ram 22s for a set of 22" cv92s ("snowflakes"). Never liked them so I picked these up cheap and sold the other to my buddy for what I have in these.

Anyway, oem ck157 22s on 265/35s. Favorite setup I've had on this truck in a while.

Well, this truck went to its new owner last night. Really loved this thing and had some good memories with it. Haven't driven it much since I got the blue truck and c5 so it needs some attention. Hate to see it go but just needed some more room for the fam. New owner is a buddy and he's already getting it back in shape.

He put new 24s on it this morning and sent me a couple of pictures...received_510601926755884.jpgreceived_489635492280022.jpg

nice grocery getter, curious to know what you gave for it in todays market.
Well, I actually work in sales at a carlot here. One of our sister stores in town had it on the lot. I paid $500 over cost so my price was $10,092. Was looking at a 10 Yukon Denali that a coworker was wanting to sell. 165k on it for $10k. She was kinda flaky on whether she wanted to sell or not so I moved on to this one.
