Old tread, but same topic I was Googling. Just got my Z36 kit installed on Monday. I broke them in while at the shop the best I could, then of course on the way home, which included highway and city driving. On my 4th day with them putting about 200 miles on them so far and they seem to be getting better and better as far as stopping power/bite. I can definitely tell a positive difference between the OEM step I had versus these Power Stops. The weather has been dry for the most part so we'll see how she does in the rain, which is expected probably on Sunday.

Last week I finally got my truck back from the shop. Had them install a 6" Pro Comp Lift Kit with Pro Runner Shocks on Fuel Beast Rims wrapped with 35 x 12.5 x 17 Toyo Open Country A/T II tires. Also added the AMP Power Steps to help my 5'1" wife and young kids get into the truck easier lol. Over the weekend I took it off-roading at Malakoff Diggins trail. It really took a beating mostly because I did not air down far enough. Lessons learned. But the kit and tires did its job well. The driver needs more experience :)
I have a standard 6.5' bed. I believe my gas gauge is off and still calculating mileage off the original 26 gallon tank or close to it. Doesn't matter too much cause I always fill up around 1/2 tank.
I got them from Amazon here. I figured I give them a try. They had good reviews and the quality was better than what I expected. Just note the wiring in the back of the pods are not flat with the base. So you can't really put them on a flat surface and have the wire come off to the side without modding the rubber base.
Very cool. Yeah my fogs are HIDs to match my low beam HIDs. I did however put LED in the high beams because when I need to flash someone I don't want to have to wait for the beams to be fully ignited lol.
I'm not mechanical so I'd keep searching. The outside and interior doesn't look bad at all, but all the rust and things you mention would definitely make it a project truck. I was fortunate to find my 02 2500 with low miles, which I got for about 13k and did not have to replace any mechanical stuff except for the notorious transmission case hole leak issue (knock on wood).
I just did the amber pod lights on my 02 2500hd. The kit came with 4 pods but only used 3 to space it out some. As far as brightness, they are pretty bright at night. I may put a yellow tint film/protector over them just to tone them down. I wired them directly to existing wiring for LED lights I have inside the cab that switch on/off with a cigarette lighter switch.
I was just searching to see if anyone else has put a solar panel on the roof of their truck and I found this post. I just did this today. I got the Renogy 100w Kit from Amazon then put it on my existing Yakima rack and not on my camper shell. Here’s how she turned out. Just connected to my main battery for now as this truck is not my daily driver.
