New Addition

Postby Rocketman_47 » Fri Apr 14, 2017 7:14 am

Hey guys. Just picked up this 95 S15 last night and it is a beast! It has a 383 LT1, T56 6 speed trans, 4 link rear suspension, 2" drop spindles, custom built fiberglass bed cover with electric remote actuators, super large front and rear disc brakes from 95 Z28 donor car , functioning "Ram-Air" fiberglass hood, rear roll pan, aluminum radiator, 18" eagle alloys front and rear and it is unbelievably fast. There are a few minor things I want to do to it but otherwise, it will stay mostly as is.

Yes sir, they sure did. I am very very impressed with the workmanship that was put into this truck. Rick, I posted a question in the Transmission section, can you please take a look and give me your thoughts?

Thanks

I agree!! Sometimes people ask if my truclk is for sale, the answer is always NO, but then they say, "Everything is for sale if the price is right, so what it would take to buy it?", and the answer is usually 7K or 8K, depending on how much trouble it's been recently, :mrgreen:

Here's a couple more shots from the rear. Of course a replacement tailgate is now in order, the previous owner warped the tailgate big time when he added the handle delete plate. Time to hit the junkyards.

17" x 8" rims in the front with 245/40ZR17 tires
17" x 10" rims in the rear with 315/35ZR17 tires

Haha, nah. I think if i do anything to it I will do a full tub with some big Mickey Thompson's. Otherwise, that will probably be all my budget allows. My Dad just passed away recently so I have to be careful about spending time and money on the truck since I need to focus on my mother now.

This is one I did a few years back. I would like to somewhat follow this look.

Never a break! Now the radiator has a hole. Judging from the looks of the radiator, it is a POS!

Looks like they're sold by all the big guys, JEGS, Speedway, Summit, so they can't be that bad. Should be easy to find a replacement. At least you're not like me running 16an hose fittings.
