            I don't have any pictures really that I took of the truck but I have an old one from the PO. 

            2001 Silverado Z71 LM7 5.3.  Has the GT5 axle (4.10s), 4 doors, etc.  Oddly enough has rear defrost.  I have to look into a couple small issues yet but for the age and price it's been a good truck so far.  The PO buggered the front diff, or whoever took it apart did and it didn't become apparent until a few weeks after I bought it, that was a bitch (stripped the splines in the front half shaft, $$$$$$$) and probably the worst thing to happen.

            Plans next year are, if funds permitted, redo the rockers and fenders (and put mud flaps on after that), 285 Duratracs, Thorley Tri-ys along with Magnaflow or Corsa, Blackbear 91 octane tune.  From what I've read that should put it around mid 20s on the highway (getting about 20 right now all highway).  If the Grenade-80 goes then I'm not sure what I'll run, Tru-trac maybe as Mitch has stated on Heights that he's heard of good results with it running big kit too yet.

            WHOREs are always doing 4x4 runs, so is WORE, RRJC, etc.  Heights is good in that it has that recovery thread which has bailed out many a person, not sure if it would work so well on here seeing as truck guys seem to be in the minority.

                2010 Chevy 2500, whatever size the gas motor is.
                It's the fore mans truck, and it's the work truck, but I drive it a **** load. For work.
                If I need it after work though, he'd let me take it most of the time.

                  Not much a tow rig but....


                  Although in all seriousness,
                  It's a S10 ZR2 on 33's. Small lift, minor exhaust work......  Most the times I have recovery equipment if someone needs a tug.

                        s10's are sick! Wanted one of those too.
                        Then my brother picked up a ZR2 blazer and it was pretty cool. But the s10 is probably more fun

                                Mine's a '91 Toyota Land Cruiser HDJ81, 4.2L I6 turbo diesel (1HD-T), 3x e-lockers, factory winch, 33" Duratracs, and I travel with recovery gear as well if anyone needs a hand.  Lots of neat features on this thing for a '91, center console fridge w/ ice maker, auto climate control, e-adj struts, headlight washers, factory winter front (blind in front of rad), heated seats, etc.

                                I'm in the process of getting the trailer wiring sorted so I can pull the sleds around this winter, and I'll hopefully get my tranny cooler installed before snow flies as well.  I've also got a set of OME stock height springs I should get installed next week, should be good for 1-1.5" lift and much improved handling!

                                    What's the controller? Truck looks so mint. I see what you mean when you were talking about the next owner going to love it.

                                        Mine's a '91 Toyota Land Cruiser HDJ81, 4.2L I6 turbo diesel (1HD-T), 3x e-lockers, factory winch, 33" Duratracs, and I travel with recovery gear as well if anyone needs a hand.  Lots of neat features on this thing for a '91, center console fridge w/ ice maker, auto climate control, e-adj struts, headlight washers, factory winter front (blind in front of rad), heated seats, etc.

                                        I'm in the process of getting the trailer wiring sorted so I can pull the sleds around this winter, and I'll hopefully get my tranny cooler installed before snow flies as well.  I've also got a set of OME stock height springs I should get installed next week, should be good for 1-1.5" lift and much improved handling!



                                        Looking good Ian, I'm sure you like this more than the Surf?

                                            In most ways, definitely.  I do miss the roll down rear window a lot, and the Surf's size was nice for some aspects of city driving/parking.  Otherwise, there's no looking back.
