Pulled the trigger on a new toy to haul other toys with lol

 

I do have to admit i got extremely lucky since i bought it sight unseen in addition to it being from a dealer on EBAY..

 

It's a 2002 GMC 2500HD 4x4 Duramax with 95k miles and all the bells/whistles. It's all stock except for the wheels and 6" lift kit...For being 16 years old i'm extremely impressed with how it's held up. The thing is a tank! Going to be a pleasure driving to events across the country with this. After it gets a fresh service i'll be installing a 4" MBRP exhaust, Edge CTS2 Tuner, and Edge back up camera :) Will update the thread when the time comes.

 

 

Side note: Any car hauler recommendations? Looking to spend as little as possible on an enclosed setup. Not sure what the best width/length is. Post pics of your setups!

Thanks Tim will def keep an eye out on CL for a nice setup.

 

Truck is just about prepped for TX2k! Installed new Tow mirrors, LED Lighting, pitman arm, idler arm/bracket, tie rods, steering shaft, and e-brakes. Also added an MBRP 4" Straight pipe, Edge CTS2 Tuner/Back-up cam, and PPE Boost Valve. It makes 300hp+ 500tq+ @ 25psi on the third setting.. LOL! It's a ton of fun for a tow tig. Going to have to keep it on the economy tune do to my heavy foot  :D

 

Drove this beast over 300 miles today! It's ready to haul.

The truck has received a few more upgrades/changes and will be wrapped in 3M Digital Elite Shadow Black this week. Stoked to see the end result! Also I am extremely grateful my buddy is hooking me up otherwise this wrap would run $3500-$5000  :huh:

 

New additions:

-Bed Lined and Undercoated (Saved $1000 by doing it myself, also came out WAY better than any local shop would have done)

-Tonnaeu Cover installed

-Grille, Bumpers, and Side steps murdered out

-De-Badged

They are good trucks! I had one for several years (actually in the process of trying to sell it) - It just turned 300,000 miles. Made several TX2K trips!
