My 6.9 is home!

Here it is, ladies and gents. This truck came with a Garrett cold air intake, aftermarket turbo (idk what brand), straight piped (time to piss off the neighbors!) , Kenwood stereo (with remote control and speakers behind the seats ), stock or OEM replacement almost everything else. I'm pretty happy with it so far. It needs minor repairs, but nothing major. And of course, my wish list: a toolbox, PA & CB, amber light for plowing, touch up the paint in a few spots, and undercoat the bottom.

Pics anyone?

I'm impressed with it so far. My friends wish they had a truck as good looking as this, and it turns heads and gets thumbs up from Chevy drivers just by sitting in the driveway It's only got a few miles worth of debris removal after Irene, but I hope to get her on the road this week.

First, the tranny is a C6....way beefier than a C4. Second, from the pics the bed is different (from a 87+ model). The way to tell is the wheel arch is different between the front fenders, and the bed. Paint sure matches up good though!

Thanks everyone. Justin, I still gotta get the tranny models down, time to study up. Good eye too, the bed is from a '92 truck.

Thanks! I know it'll never be as shiny as yours, but I'm pretty happy with it.
