Beastly: A Story About A Truck

Well, figured others have threads to chronicle there builds, I might as well to. Keeps all my crap in one place at anyrate. I've had my truck about 8 months now. To date I have installed done the following:

Debadged/Demould
Plasti dip rear bumper, front bumper, grille, GMC emblems
Nicktane fuel filter adapter
EGR Blocker Plate
Moog Problem Solver Inner Tierods
MA Tierod Sleeves
AirdogII 165
Locking DSP5 Switch
EFI Live /TCM Tuned by KW
Denali Headlight Retro
Insight CTS w/ Pyro
MA Pump Rub Fix
Transgo Jr
Fumoto Oil Drain
DHD Brace
2" Wheel Spacers on Rear
MA Transfer Case Brace
Built Trans
Moog complete UCA's
Moog lower ball joints
Moog sway bar endlinks
Moog pitman
Moog idler and support assembly
Kyb shocks on all corners
3" drop shackles
Removed Running Boards
Swapped Tail Lights To Chevy Tails
Replaced driver side tow mirror.

Ill edit later and post pics of the day I bought Beastly, up to present day.

So today I came home early from out of town for a wedding. Low and behold, what do I find? Dsp5 keyed switch, and a slip for a parcel. So I eagerly ran down to the post office and picked up my package. My sleeves and AirdogII 165 have arrived Now I just need the autocal to show its face.

On a sad note, my inner tie rod on the drivers side is starting to look like it needs replacing. So I may end up getting rid of the sleeves and going straight for some Rare tie rods or a full brace kit that includes the rare rods.

There may not be as frequent updates as some, but I hope some find it interesting at least and maybe do the same for there truck

You'll "dig it" once I get the tail lights and third brake light tinted, ambers removed from headlights, clear parking lights, and black wheels

If not, oh well, I like it

To each his own right

I agree on the grill... I like them chrome or white, black sorta makes it look like the low package fords and vans. But to each their own
