    Rear lifted with Off Road Design 4" shackle flip and a 2" add-a-leaf. Also has a zero rate on the rear for 1" of lift and to move the axle back 1".

    36x12.50/16 Super Swamper Radials on 16x10 rock crawler steelies (black) - tires have about 40% on the rear and ~65% on the front

    800W AC Inverter mounted below driver seat.
    MV-50 air compressor mounted behind driver seat.
    Has trailer hitch and trailer wiring harness

    Speedometer doesn't work right now. I am not sure if the cable is snapped or is just not pushed on the back of the speedo enough. The ECM for the TBI is getting a proper speed reading from the sender at the tranny, so the speedo gears are fine.

    A/C is all there, but needs a recharge. I would actually just convert over to 134....and replace seals, etc.

    Lovely GM paint is starting to chip on portions of the truck. The black primer is still in good condition though. THere is really no rust on the truck to speak of.

    Front seats need new covers. The fabric on the bottom cushions is tearing/missing.

    Other than that, the truck is in great condition. It runs really well, just pulled a trailer with ATV's and a truckfull of people down to Pismo and it handled very well. THe reason for selling it is that I just bought a new diesel and need to get rid of my excess cars.

    $6000 OBO
    Pics to follow soon.
