I recently bought another truck.It is a 1990 chevy 1500..This truck is not the factory ride height.It has a superlift 5 1/2" suspension lift,and sits on 35" tires.I haven't seen this year truck as clean as this one in a long time.The rockers and cab corners have no rust.Which is very odd for these trucks.It needed a little work to get it on the road which i just finished putting it back together this afternoon.The transmission was shot when i got it.I picked one up at a local junkyard 2 weekends ago.While i had the transmission out i replaced the oil pan gasket and rear main seal.They were leaking.While putting everything back together i found a few issues to take care of while i was working on it.The one wiring harness was laying against the header and melted the wires. I patched them up and ran the wiring differently then zip tied it in place.Two of the spark plug wires were also laying on the header and melted through.I replaced the plug wires today.The front driveshaft still needs fixed.I don't think they put the correct u-joint in it when it was replaced last.It has a lot of side to side play when it's fastened.I also found today that the 4 wheel drive isn't engaging.Without looking at it i'm thinking it's the accuator.Thats still on the to-do list.The plan is to paint the truck when i'm off work between christmas and new years.We'll see how that pans out.
The first 2 pictures are when i got it
These 2 pictures i took today after i switched the grill and turn signal lenses
Next on the list is to swap the hood,bumper,and bull bar with the ones on my old truck.The hood on my old truck is a all steel 2 1/2 rise cowl induction.For what i'll get for my old truck i'm not letting that go along.The bumper is an aftermarket billet style bumper that matches the grill i put on.
