    Its time.

    Not parting it out, dont ask.

    Why am I selling the truck I have wanted since I was 12 years old and finally have... really dont ask.

    * 22K on a GM Performance Parts 330hp crate motor
    * 24K on a rebuilt TH350 with corvette internals, new stall converter
    * 14-bolt rearend (semi-float) - converted to 6-lug, 1/2" wheel studs (stock are 7/16)
    * Fresh rebuild (as in last weekend) 10-bolt front... spicer ball joints, spicer 1-ton TRE's on a Black Widow tie-rod, 1/2" wheel studs (stock are 7/16)
    * 4-wheel disc brakes - 10 miles on front pads (new last weekend)
    * 33x12.50x15 Wildcat AT's
    * 4.10 gears front & rear
    * NP205 transfer case
    * New SSV steering stabilizer (New last weekend)
    * 15" x 10" American Racing wheels - Aluminum
    * 2" Tuff Country all-spring lift
    * RS9000 shocks all around
    * Stainless steel brake lines front and rear - Black Widow rear disc conversion
    * Near perfect hard-top with new rear window seal - freshly painted white
    * Herculined interior
    * Clean/near perfect stock seats - recently recovered
    * True Dual custom exhaust with cross-over
    * Flowmaster 40-series delta-flow mufflers
    * Hedman Headers
    * No Rust. Rockers are in good shape, body is in great shape (some dents, no rust)
    * New door seals - body to door, not window/top seals, havent replaced those yet.
    * New (September) front and rear triple nickel chrome front and rear bumpers
    * B&M trans cooler
    * Rear Limited Slip Diff - tight, in good shape

    Not to mention a ton of other stuff that I have fixed, replaced, changed, etc... I.e. I have been replacing older rusty bolts with stainless steel for around 2 years... I have replace a lot of bolts.

    Engine is VERY strong. Runs GREAT. I get good mileage on the freeway. Engine hits max HP at 5700 RPM, its NEVER been close. This has been my baby. Running Royal purple synthetic oil.

    Tranny shifts clean and strong. No slips. running synthetic trans fluid (B&M Trick Shift)

    Front/Rear ends are both now in great shape. Both are running Royal Purple gear oil for better mileage and longevity.

    Anyway... I have never wheeled hard with this truck, never wanted to hurt it.

    Its almost done as far as being restored to a good clean daily driver/wheeler. Just got it back from the alignment shop tonight as a matter of fact. (got an alignment after the new rebuilt front-end)

    7500.00 ... Firm. If you have something you think I might want to trade, go ahead and PM me... but like I said, this thing was my dream rig for 16 years before I got it and has been my baby for the last 4... so low-balling me wont get you far.

    Also, if you think I am asking too much... find one in this nice of shape, with the things I have done to it for less... then buy that one and STFU.

    This is a very nice rig... I've ridden in it, been around it a few times. Wish I had the cash.
