    Nice truck! I think that black is a sweet looking color for a truck when clean.:)

    Hey thanks Trinity Lawn Care, I'm working on getting more pics up, you responded really quick. Yeah that truck is my baby. It is a 2002 Regular Cab short bed. The truck has the 5.3 liter Vortec V-8 with true dual exhaust (Flowmaste 40 series) It puts out a tick over 300 horse. About 310 I think. Anyway I LOVE it. Since these pics the grandpa steps are gone and the torsion bar was cranked a little to allow the truck to sit a little more level. The truck is a beast and I love it until I have to fill it up. Tell me what ya think...

    Cool rig.

    Gotta love Chevy's

    The only thing is cranking the torsion bars is a bad idea. They sag back to normal ride hight after a while and ride quality can get really messed up.

    I know this from doing it to 3 Chevy's and messing them up.

    The right way is with some coil spacers, thats what I used about $70 to do it the right way.

    Oh I have some extras that will fit your truck, let me know if you want them.
