    I stand corrected:roflbow:.

    That's how mine was. I figured just unscrew, I was wrong:angry94:.

    Thanks for the input. I'm guessing the quickest way to check would be to take the Drums off and measure:confused:.

    Well got Blue out of the driveway and used her to help my aunt with furniture. All I can say is she didn't even squat or stutter. Pretty long trip to her place and back. Also had to stop by the dump to get rid of her old mattress. Also ran into a guy who really wanted to buy 'er, I happily turned him down:bowroflwerd6:.

    That's prolly going to be my new favorite OEM C20 on this forum since the other one isn't OEM anymore. I have the Twin to that truck but mine needs fresh paint and the wheels painted.

    I agree, very nice truck. Good stance too. Only thing wrong with it is the tail lights. I would be putting stockers back on ASAP!

    I missed that. Yep, I'd prolly go with the stockers too. Not a big fan of those Euro clear lenses lights. At least they can be swapped in minutes.

    I think the only way those taillights would work is on a white truck. Sometimes I just want to find a stock C20/C30 that is as clean as this one. I'm starting to lean towards 2 wheel drives for less weight and I'm not torn to lift them up higher.

    After looking back over the original pics posted, I think there is only 2 things I could pick apart on this thing. Of course I don't expect you to change them either. It's a great truck just like it is. Those Euro Taillights and the OEM rims painted to match the truck, should have been painted white. I'd even be leaving that motor alone too. It's OEM cluttered looking but that's how they look from the factory. Those emissions and hoses aren't even hurting enough to make a noticeable difference if you took them off. Not going to increase performance, not going to improve mpg so may as well leave it. My only bitch about all that crap is it's in way when it comes to work on something, other than that, it has a purpose or it wouldn't be there.

    Glad you like it:happy160:

    The only reasons I put them tail lights on is:
    1.They were cheap
    2.So I could get brighter reverse lights
    3.The old ones were faded.
    I've considered putting the some new stock ones on. Which is going on my list right now :happy107:.

    I wanted a 4WD but when I saw this one I could compromise:worthy:.

    I like the rims, but the PO didn't do it right. they didn't take the wheel weights off and when I got the new tires put on the white under the weights is showing. As for the emissions junk it isn't hurting anything:burnout:.

    :waytogo:Thanks.

    If you likey that you'll likey this on I have to:

    Well moved 'er around a littlle bit today. Loaded up some more furniture:whymewhyme: and added a billet grille. I like the way it looks IMO but my turn signals were screwed because they were glued to the grille. So some new ones are my next priority.

    Well went out yesterday and got 'er inspected. I lucked out because the inspector didn't notice I hadn't put my turn signals back on yet:). While I was out I also had some free time to give 'er a bath:cool::

    I like the new grille and once I modify the turn signals it'll look awesome:waytogo:.
