Wasn't planning on making one but whatever, I'm bored

2008 Silverado ecsb.. desert brown.. bought it out of family for cheap in 2016.

When I got it, it needed some work. Nothing crazy.. body was straight, had a couple dents and scratches but overall the paint was pretty much perfect. Needed a front bumper, rear bumper, tires and some other small maintenance stuff

The only picture I know of it being completely 100% stock. 2014? dem high school pic skills..

after this the truck kind of sat around not getting driven much. Have a daily that I use so wasn't really using the truck a whole lot. Didn't do anything either

July 2019 wanted to change stuff up and started ordering drop parts

also put the 1500 grill back on, I've since colormatched the bowtie, and also wrapped the impact bar. which isn't staying

that's pretty much how it sits now, I know I'm missing stuff and there's a ton of pictures the site wont let me add

Damn, really like the direction you went.
Thanks!

as much as im not a lowered truck guy besides slammed. you have made some good choices. I would have the HD grill colormatched and installed. i am digging the new wheels.
been on and off with it. part of me wants to pull the wrap off the impact bar, then colormatch the lower valance. I'm the oddball that likes the chrome up front.

So I've done a lot since I last updated this, and spent a lot of money

2003 4l80e 110k miles or so.. this came out of a wrecked 2500 single cab from my neighbors electrician fleet. Got it, tore into it and noticed it had some water in it from sitting. No big deal, this cleaned up nicely.

Case after paint:

Parts fresh out of the parts washer:
C91A9E69-3436-49E8-96A4-E7076DE56165.jpg

So far this is parts list for the 80e, honestly I was never expecting to go this far but everyone knows how that goes

All new gaskets, seals, bushings
Raybestos "stage 1" red frictions
Kolene Coated Steels
New bands
New pistons
Rollerize tailshaft
Rollerize front hub w/ sonnax billet
Sonnax TCC regulator valve
New Solenoids
Sonnax Trans boost valve kit
Sonnax Imidized checkballs
Sonnax regulated pressure valve
Billet input shaft?

Probably missing a few things, cant remember off the top of my head

Off and on about if I want to do HD2

I am planning on going turbo in the summer

vs 7875, kb or trick hotside, etc. motors coming out for bearings, gapped rings. Thats about it

I want to say those are the same frictions and steels that were in the TCI kit I used in the 700 in my 88, if they are they were good

Been a minute. I did ALOT to the truck but skipping the boring stuff and getting straight to the point. Sold the ck161s, added rear helper bags, re geared to 4.10s and added a trutac. Swapped out for a set of OEM clears in the front to get rid of the fog, I'm missing alot of others.

Ended up going huron v4 t4. Kit came last week, getting ready to tear the truck down and install.
