  1. I've had several cash offers appear anytime I roll the shell out of the garage. Not for sale! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-J727A using Tapatalk
  2. What did you do? Run it with the oil plug out? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-J727A using Tapatalk
  3. You're supercharged though. I'm talking bone stock TBI. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-J727A using Tapatalk
  4. It's 30 years old, man, cut it some slack! [emoji1787] Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-J727A using Tapatalk
  5. They're not up to today's task of highway driving. They're not quick enough, and the brakes were awful. Against everyone else with 4 way disc, you'd run the risk of a crash and you'd have no airbags if you had 94 or older. But you are right. Things can be upgraded. The GM crate 350 is what I have planned for my 93, and I'll be ditching the TBI for a carburetor. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-J727A using Tapatalk
  6. Hey now, I have fond memories of my TBI 350! [emoji41] Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-J727A using Tapatalk
  7. To be fair, Ford and Dodge didn't have engine options back then that were much different from what GM offered in half ton trucks. The 350's lifespan was downright impressive. The early 90s SVT Lightning 351 didn't really put up numbers too far from a 350! The TBI 350 was 210 HP/ 300 Ft-Lb (increased in '96 when they brought out the Vortec) and the 351 Ford was 240 HP/ 340 Ft-Lb, but that was their *performance* engine with upgraded heads. It really wasn't that special! The lowly GM 350 could be had in just about anything. 30 HP isn't going to be that noticeable in a truck. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-J727A using Tapatalk
  8. CB Radio in the jumpseat console

    That's kinda how I'd have it set up if I had the full console to the dash and not a jumpseat. I'm fairly confident I can get it running in my jumpseat console. I also ordered an SWR meter. The little Uniden I ordered doesn't have one built in. Fine with me, it's a roughly 4" x 6" unit. More compact is preferable so I can still use that console space for other things. I plan to use a magnetic antenna and put it on the roof. The goal is no permanent modifications. Something I can easily move. If the SWR isn't quite right, I'll move it.

  9. CB Radio in the jumpseat console

    Are you getting what you expected with regards to audio through the aux port? I don't want the radio squawk full time. But I do want the ability to check it when I'm about to choose a significant portion of my commute route. By having it as auxiliary audio, I can quickly switch between AM/FM/XM or my bluetooth audio.

  10. I want to add a CB to my 2017 K2, and wonder if you guys have any input on my intended method. I would like to put the radio unit in the jumpseat console, for two reasons: 1. Clean installation with no permanent holes 2. Inside that console, there is 12V power and 3.5mm aux audio port I plan to power the radio with the 12V cigarette lighter-style port, and then use a male-to-male 3.5mm audio cable to connect the audio-out to the truck, so that I can get the audio through the speakers by selecting that audio source through built-in methods. The handset cord and the coaxial would then come out through the front in the little clearance cutouts. I suspect that I might have some RF noise on that audio cord, and plan to tune the noise out with snap-on ferrite cores. Has anybody tried this? Any reason why it would not work?

  11. When I shopped and bought in late 2017, I didn't see a single 5.3 that wasn't flex fuel. What state are you in? I'm in Florida. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-J727A using Tapatalk
  12. Double cab/6'6" bed has the same wheelbase as a crew cab/5'8". Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-J727A using Tapatalk
  13. I guess I should mention that I cut my teeth on a RCSB 1500 and followed it with 2 Tahoes. The longer wheelbase of my 14 Double Cab was quite an adjustment. I got used to it, but it was still a pain to park in tight spots. Wasn't looking to make it any worse! [emoji38] Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-J727A using Tapatalk
  14. I didn't color match on my graphite metallic truck and the smoke black Aeroskin is damn near invisible unless you walk right up to it. It's a good product. I really like how sleek it is, and it's surprisingly effective. In the old days I had the big Lund deflector that required drilling. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-J727A using Tapatalk
  15. 8 speed transmission and rumble strip feel is almost always the torque converter. Repeated flushes fix it temporarily. I believe the long term fix is a new torque converter. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-J727A using Tapatalk
