Rebuilt 09 Chevy Silverado 3500HD After Tornado, New Flatbed

So my bros house and our shop got destroyed in a tornado June 5 2010...

We lost mowers, trucks, trailers, Cars, plows, salters... Everything!

So I bought back our 09 Silverado... And rebuilt it...

So what you guys think? Still needs more work, but it works for now, and is street legal...

Some of the stuff i did...
  • New Hood
  • New Passenger Side Fender
  • New Radiator
  • New Windows (Front, Rear, Both Sides)
  • New Cab lights
  • New Headlights
  • New Grille
  • New Washer Fluid Pump
  • New Flatbed

I also added...
  • Wooden Sides
  • Reverse Lights
  • Work Lights
And much more...
