Hey guys, not new to the forum, I've had an 01 LB7 for about 4 years, but I found the (almost) perfect truck and bought it.

It's a 2003 crew cab short bed pewter LB7. It has a factory manual ZF6 and a long list of mods (some aren't my taste and will be changed). It only has 57k miles which is a big reason I bought it. It's also pretty loaded and has every option except leather and digital climate control.

I only have a few pictures as I just picked it up.


Here's the picture listed on the ad, notice the front end grill and headlights and the red wheels. :cookoo[1]:

Working on removing the pinstriping and decals. Also swapped out the red wheels inserts for chrome.

Interior is nice, needs a cleaning though. The PO had the CTS on the windshield so I bought and installed a dash mount.

Current mod list:
Southbend dual disk clutch
Banks 5" single exhaust, no muffler
Edge CTS
EFI live tuning
Pro comp lift (triple shocks up front)
Some custom rear diff cover
Moto metal 20X12s with 33s
Cowl hood
All new front end suspension with tie rod sleeves
Banks intake with lower scoop
Banks big head wastegate
CAT fuel filter
FASS 150
Custom sound system with 2 10" subs
Ugly grille and tail lights
Cab lights



Things I want to change:

There is painted on pinstriping and painted names all over. I've already started removing this but it's been on there a long time and it's tricky.

New taillights
Factory grill
New cab lights
New smaller wheels with bigger tires
New head unit (the current alpine is from 2008)

Thoughts?

I'd keep the 20x12s and 33s. I think it looks great

I'd rather have the tires closer to the body. Maybe 18X10X35

18 inch in overall tire diameter....
10 inches wide....
35 inch rims....

Interesting combo :thumb
Idea also, check and see if there is spacers behind your current rims.

35/13.5/20 would look excellent :thumb
They wouldn't fit, the current 33s rub when turning...

Yea there are spacers, unsure what size though.

I want 35s with 18X10 wheels.

Only spacers in the rear. The problem comp lift pushes the front wheels out far.

I added rear LED backup lights, they are super bright. Still looking for a factory front grill to replace the ugly one.

I approve of you saving this truck. I was a little worried when I saw the pics and hadn't read anything yet.

Thanks. Still need an OEM grill.
Really turned the truck around.
Thanks


That's an interesting spot for a booster cable plug
Idk what that is. The blue thing? It's a positive and negative wire. What's it do?

Jumper cables. There would be a set of cables with a male plug that plugs to that blue connector and a ground and positive to go to a battery to be jumped
