Found a pic of my truck from when I first got it 7 years ago.

    Yeah, the looks on his face tells it all. Something about having an old chevy, with 250K miles, and then taking that and putting 39.5's on it and crawling over rocks is intriquing.

    My buddy that took the pic caught me unawares...I was just sitting there at the end of Lower Helldorado taking it all in when he snapped the pic.

    The only parts of the truck that still exist today (that can be seen in the pic's) are the windshield, hood, and roof. The frame is the same too...but every other part has been replaced, some of them multiple times.

    I swappped in a 6.2 diesel a little over a year ago. Definitely my best mod so far IMHO.

    Duh, missed the 6.2L diesel thing. I want to make my 350 into a 383 with headers and what not. I'd like to go diesel, but not sure I have the time for the changeover.

    Yes it is Mike...wow. I didn't expect anyone to recognise that, especially with so little to go on.

    Mine was a '3' dressed up as a '9' by some car lot. The brand new carpet was only there to hide the rotted floors among other things. 6 months after that pic the rockers had gaping holes in them, there were holes over the rear wheels, and the drivers door skin had separated. /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif

    Maybe time to resurrect the 'Baby truck pics' post from a while ago? /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif
    That way I dont have to dig out the ancient pic of mine from the black hole of lost hard copy pics! /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    I'm over it now Harry...but at the time I was very ticked off. Also found out the truck had been rolled about 8 or 9 months after I got it. You should see the sledge hammer dents in my roof /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif They were hidden by the headliner.../forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif
