My 1991 Crewcab Purchased this big 1 ton in early 2019, had several ideas of what I had envisioned for my build. First was the lift. It had been sitting 4 inches high as an old farm truck, me and my dad bought and added a 8” leaf spring lift. Added 3” spacers in the rear and 2” spacers on the front. Coupled with 24x14’s. Bought and welded 8 foot traction bars. Took rear bumper off and added a steel roll pan, removed original hood and installed a new 4” cowl hood. Got tired of the original orange amber ... read more >>
Built with Love My Dad started our business in 1980, the first thing he bought was a suburban and painted it the company colors. After unexpectedly losing him a few years back, I needed to step up and run the family business. I put my grief on a shelf and got to work. Once the business was headed the right way, I felt the need for connection with my late father, that is what led me to this build. The process of installing parts and building this suburban into a clone of my father's has helped me on many ... read more >>
Memories I purchased a 1988 Chevrolet S10 Tahoe 2.8L single cab short bed just over 3 years ago. It started off as a seemingly harmless purchase. Maybe a winter truck or a daily driver. Not sure how or why I decided to make a 45 minute trip to look at this particular one. I called my father out of the blue and asked if he wanted to go look at a cheap s10. He just laughed and agreed. Unfortunately when we arrived I quickly realized just how bad this little truck was. We were there and optimistic. Combing over ... read more >>
1987 GMC Sierra Classic A friend told me about the truck. Both he and the seller thought it was an 86 with a 305. We were pleasantly surprised when we ran the vin and found that it was an 87 with a 350 tbi! We can tell that the most recent owner was a young college student that didn’t care for it as much as it needed. However, an earlier owner apparently spent some time on it as the frame has been sandblasted and painted at some point. It’s certainly no show truck but it gets attention and lots ... read more >>
Penny Brown 2nd owner. I bought her out of Georgia with a little over 109k miles from a gentleman who bought it brand new. Hated the color at first, but it grew on me. It was all original with a 305 and a turbo 350 trans. Power everything. Everything works; every light, every gauge, the clock, everything. Bumper was a little dented from when the gentleman hit is carport. Replaced it with an 81-82 style bumper from LMC. Completely upgraded brakes. New brake lines, CPP front calipers, and rear rebuild (shoes and hardware). New suspension. 4/6 drop. Springs and ... read more >>
Daddy Pat’s Good Ole Truck For almost 8 years my grandfather’s truck sat unused in his old barn. It was the truck he took his grandkid’s fishing in, the truck he used to make a living for his family as a farmer, the truck my mom used to move to college. He always called it “the good ole truck.” Reliable, loyal, strong. A year after he passed, I asked my grandmother if I could restore it and she surprised me with the title on Christmas Day. 2 years later and whole lot of work, it is near completion. Beyond ... read more >>
