so injectors on the duramax are done and i am doing a bunch of other performance mods to make a race/daily truck.


any who since the truck will be torn apart i needed a new daily.

found this truck.

its a 1999 regular cab short box silverado 4x4 4.3 v6 manual.

has around 220,000km 137,000 miles.

this is how i picked it up.





the next day i tore into and kinda finished it up today.

total of 5 days of owning it and have about $175 into it in total and piad $2500 CAD for it to start.




plans for it are to drive it.
mirror caps are currently being painted.

maybe tint.

also ordered seat covers for it since the seats are destroyed.

Not bad for a cheap daily. Looks like cranked stock keys?

yeah they were cranked a bit already i gave them 2 more turns.

put my 285/55/20's off the duramax on here makes it look like a little monster truck lol

did some searching.

coming from a duramax to this thing its pretty gutless.

so i thought id have like 342's and an open rear diff but i was pleasantly surprised with 383's and a g80 locker.

going to possibly run some more agressive tires and do some cutting eventually to make it a little camping/ trail rig.

not going to SAS it cause its not worth my time.


canopy will go back on with roof rack and such.

also need to find a tuner lug socket and a few lugs so i can change my tires out on the trail...

Good thing you don't have the 3.42s. 4.3 isn't horrible if you have a Dmax for the fun rig


live from the gutter trash.

Nice little DD you found there. Adding some clear signal lenses would be the only thing I'd change but that's just preference.
