    Nice looking truck!

    on a side note. Where do you get these bench seat covers with the front pockets? I remember them from back in the day but I just tried to google some and came up empty.

    Thank you! Lmc sells them! They're okay quality, my best advice would be pull the seat out to get the cover all perfect and nice and get everything super tightened down and don't mess with sliding it around a bunch. It lasted over a year and I'm rough on seats so they aren't too bad and they offer quite a few colors. I still have it on, just split the threads in a couple spots from pulling on it.

    I'm not worried about the mechanical stuff one bit, already went through the same thing on my suburban, just needs some love on everything. Reseal the trans and transfer case and run em' then a facelift and get everything working correctly and she'll be solid.

    But yes, I'm heavily suspicious that the dealership just didn't want to work on it so they told the guy that it was blown. Or like I said the exhaust is pulled out of the drivers side manifold and maybe they had assumptions based off that?

    But my first plan of attack was to get the pipe hooked back up and try starting it and see what it does. Even with what he said I see no windows so I'm confident I'll at least be able to rebuild it if it is bad.

    It really is a decent color shade! Especially with the grey paint jobs.

    I agree, lots of times they just don't want to mess with it...
    so I'm sure I'm not the only armchair detective waiting on pics and details of the tear down!

    I hope I don't have to tear it down yet! But rest assured, when I do have to tear it down I'll post all the pics you can dream of! :rotflmao: If it sounds bad enough I might make a video of it too lol
