Pretty much everything that matters on this truck has been touched, improved, or replaced. Starting with the business end there is a used 5.3-liter (323 cubic inches) that was given a Texas Speed stage 2 camshaft and valve springs, sheet metal intake, and ignition coil covers. For those unfamiliar the 5.3 liter engine is based on General Motors LS engine family and is a notoriously popular choice for performance enthusiasts. This engine bay pops like a piece of jewelry! The seller states the 4-speed automatic transmission was rebuilt as part of the project as well.
The red interior is stunning with a lot of new parts as well! The bench is comfortable, and the dash is fitted with a modern radio connected to modern speakers. Most of the equipment works, but there is a headlight out, no brights, the wipers/power locks and courtesy lights are not currently working. The windows are said to have new regulators but are a little slow possibly due to all the fresh rubber. A ton of custom work and attention to detail was put into the body work. The radiator support, inner fenders, and firewall were custom body worked to provide the stunning underhood aesthetic shown in the photos.
The floor of the truck bed was raised, sloped and an opening created to see the stunning framework and rear suspension underneath. This could also serve as maintenance accessibility in some cases.
The ride height has been lowered, and the factory suspension thrown away in favor of upgraded parts including Porterbuilt upper/lower control arms, 4 link rear suspension with QA1 coilovers, and drilled/slotted brake rotors. Many vehicles are just flashy or just powerful, but this ride appears to have it all!
As part of the build the seller stripped, sandblasted, and painted the frame black. The frame was also reinforced and customized because the initial idea for the build was to lower in on air suspension. Should the next owner wish to go that direction a custom mount location was created for the would be air tanks. The seller also states all new glass, rubber seals, chrome, and Lizard skin applied near the rust prone areas.
