Got the LEDs done in the dash, guages were supposed to be white but he did them in blue for some reason but im ok with it i guess. May change the needles to a different color but not sure what yet. Have the Escalade bezel on order so hopefully that'll come in soon.
cjb321 replied to 02chevy1500's topic in 1999-2006 & 2007-2013 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500I've been running a Jasper reman'd 4l80e for 4 years now with no troubles, came with 3year/100k mile warranty.
New dash pieces all came in finally. Couple weeks i should have the dash done with all LED and maybe the Escalade bezel. Bezel depends on the shop thats doing the LEDs for me, if thier price is cheaper than me buying it myself. Decided to get the cargo.fog switch combo instead of the blank because im going to use that switch to power a relay for the lights im going to add to the brushguard when i get them. Factory fogs im going to tie into the parking lights. Thats the plan anyway lol havent looked at everything yet to see if it'll work or not.
cjb321 replied to GrumpyGhost's topic in Vehicle BuildsIf that bed came from Texas then it was from the coast, I live in west Texas and my truck is 11 years old and barely has surface rust on the frame. I'm in the same boat as you , self taught with auto shop class in high school but i dont have as many cool tools as you do lol. Hell i dont even have a garage Good luck with the truck, i enjoy watching the progress on peoples projects
cjb321 replied to SilveradoSaver's topic in 1999-2006 & 2007-2013 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500Half ton lug pattern is the same between the 06 and the 11. not sure on the width or offset though, think it depends on which wheels they are.
For the past few months the starter on the truck has been acting up. Once the truck got warmed up the starter would fail to engage sometimes. Well i finally got tired of fighting with it and got a new one. Didnt take any pics cause it was dark out when i changed it but im sure we all know what a starter looks like. It was a pain though because the trans cooler lines run right next to the starter so unless you have really small hands it sucks. Did get some new parts for the truck also because im starting the the dash part of the build. Got new headlight and cargo/fog switches and after some thought i may as well order a new ac/heat controller. Going to do blue led swap in all 3. Got new ones because im not sure if the olds ones will last much longer. Headlight switch has a loose connection in it already and i never touch it lol. Guage cluster im going to do in white led because after looking at others i think it just too much blue, i have a plan that may look cool too if i can get it to work. If i do i'll do a write up for anyone who wants to copy.
just got this a couple months ago, just v6 but its the premium version with the pony package, basically all the show none of the go. First year of this styling but last year of the 4.0L. got a killer deal on it when i was looking at an older cheaper one at the ford dealer up the street from my house. may get turned into a monster when i finish my truck. 2010 Mustang
