The Heavy Chevy

My heavy chev is gettin a make over this week. My grandfather in-law purchased this truck brand new in 87 when he was about 63 and just tooled around town in it, when he died I was given the truck in 2001 and it was cherry, I drove the truck for a while and when I moved to Albuquerque I got bored with it, lifted it 6" put 35" mickey's on it and beat the living piss out of it rock crawling! LMAO!!! I also rearended a stoped cadilac at about 60mph and completely went over the top of it! I fixed all of that and then the motor took a shit, built a moderate 350 for it and got everything else all dialed in, now it runs like a champ and makes some great torque. I stepped down to some 33" less agressive tires to help the horrible gas mileage and now it is time for a make over! I pulled the truck in today to tie up all the minor dings and dents and Monday i will throw some fresh paint on it and tuesday or wednesday i will spray in a new bedliner. Minor project but I figured I would post up some before pics and some after pics!

Nice. What color you going to paint her? I like that truck. My first vehicle was a 75 shortbed 4x4. I'm definitely going to own one again.
I've always wanted to slap a stroked Ls1 in one. One day.
