  1. Took the bed liner out today and cut it up. It was already modified at some point for the topper to fit and was in bad shape. Fortunately the bed is perfect underneath no rust. Hoping to get the truck out for paint in about 2 weeks or so. After that things should go together quickly. I have my eye on an LS1 and 4L60E locally. Might go take a look this weekend. Going to polish the taillights this weekend and paint the trim silver. They had the chrome trim on them from the factory but unfortunately it’s mostly worn off. Also planning to pull the bed and media blast the entire frame, then coat it with POR15 and undercoating Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Awesome thanks!! This is so cool. Yes it has an auto. The only two things that jump out at me are the front bumper, it says black but it’s chrome and the instrument cluster does not have a tach, it’s got the large gas gauge. My grandfather told me it was fully optioned except for not being a 4x4. He told me he had the original build sheet but I could never find it. Unfortunately he’s been gone for 10 years now.

  3. Purchased by my grandfather new from Frystock in New Jersey. Doing a full restoration with LS1 swap. I grew up in this truck. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Got some work done today. Wire brushed the floor pans, cleaned them up and got them coated with POR15. Ordered a bunch of stuff last night. So glad things are finally moving along. Floors weren’t bad thank god Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Picked these up, gonna do a 4.5” lift. Debating on keeping all the chrome and having it redone or changing everything to black. Opinions? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. So it took me over a year but i got her out of my parents garage. She’s at my house now and I have started further stripping her down for paint. Final decision on the color is sting gray. I’m planning to get a rubicon gladiator so it would be awesome to have them matching. Here’s some pictures of her current condition. This thread will not be stalling again. I’m on the hunt for a corvette LS1 and 4L60E. Hoping to have her out for paint in the next two months or less. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Wow can’t believe it’s been 5 years. This project completely stalled. Life got in the way. I got married and bought a house. And now have a 7 month old daughter. Anyway, I still have my Comanche. It’s sitting in my parents garage. I have been slowly gathering parts here and there. Right now I’m on the look out for a 5.3 LSX or a LS1 to swap in. Not wasting time or money on the v6. At this point I’m getting ready to take her in for paint. With as clean as this truck is I think I need to stay with the original maroon with gold flake color and keep all my chrome pieces. I’m ready to pick this back up and get her back on the road. I have the time, money and my own garage to do it now. Current condition of my girl Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. V8 swapping? What's the plan. Obviously need a new bottom end Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Holy $#!& man. That's a major failure. Is the rod broken? Serous detonation Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Exactly, and it could be worse it could be a DOHC 4.6 cobra motor or coyote. Double or triple the cost and much harder to work on. This is an awesome build. Get it buttoned up and enjoy it. You actually have me considering going a route similar to this instead of an LS1 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. What brand pistons? You must have had some serious detonation. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Was the block machined and heads gone through and resurfaced? On thing that could cause this is a warped head. Did it overheat at all during your tuning? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. This is awesome. I may have missed it but what are the specs on the turbo? Considered running e85? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
