Up for sale is my prized possession for many years. My 1995 2 door Chevy Tahoe 2 door.
In March 2012, we planned to take it to Tampa Florida to be dropped off for a complete interior rebuild, huge sound system, new door panels, carpet, the works basically. To make the trip from Memphis to Tampa, we changed every part needed to make the truck 100% trip worthy. We also stripped the interior, and had all of the plastics in the rear of the truck.
The truck needed axle shafts, rear brakes, windshield wiper motor, AC compressor, full tune up, oil change, etc. We worked for a week solid (at least)making sure that we had it all taken care of. We finished the night before leaving out for Tampa.
Well.... I used my trusty impact gun to install the wheels that night, which had served me well for 5+ years. Evidentially, the wheel was in a bind when tightening the lug nuts, because as we were driving down the highway roughly 125 miles from home... The rear driver's wheel came off!!
We were pulling a truck and trailer behind us, so when the wheel came off, all hell broke loose. We flipped the Tahoe twice, threw the other truck from the trailer, and landed right side up, just off the highway, with the engine still running! :-O
I have worked on this truck for many many many nights, and hate to see her go, but I can't see myself rebuilding it, or building another truck from these parts. I am sure that there is someone out there with a stock OBS truck who would love to grab all of the parts that they needed in one swoop... so here they are!

There is a bent upper A-arm and tie rod on the front Driver's wheel, from where the front end landed in the crash. The upper relocating bracket was also slightly bent, but could easily be repaired. This was the only part of the suspension or drive train that was damaged in the accident other than the upper ball joint, which has already been replaced. You can see how the front wheel sits at an angle in this photo...
The truck was in perfect running condition when we wrecked it. I had just spent ~$2000 the previous week to overhaul the truck and get it worthy of a trip from Memphis to Tampa, FL and back.
I guarantee that the engine, transmission, transfer case, and axles all function properly. The only thing keeping the truck from driving down the road are the bent suspension components on the front Driver's wheel.
The doors, fenders, hood, etc are all good.
The rear of the truck is bent over, and would have to be completely cut off and replaced to be repaired.
The door glasses are both good.
The fender flares are all good except for the rear passenger side.
The entire interior is gutted, but all of the pieces are inside of the truck, The dash is no good, but the rest of the parts are all still good.
One wheel (the one that came off) has some damage to where the lug nuts go, but the lugs DO tighten the wheel down very well. I would trust it to drive on, but it could be filled and drilled if you wanted.
The AC system was just rebuilt, and is full of Freon. It blows ICE COLD!

This was the original engine from this truck. After doing some work to the heater core, I forgot to replace the antifreeze, and the block cracked!!! The engine was still running perfectly the day that I removed it and tore it down. The entire engine is included, minus the block itself! You'll get the crank, rods, pistons, heads, intake, throttle body, brackets, etc... If you have a 1995 block to use, these parts would last another hundred thousand easily!! There is no damage to the components of this engine.
Pre 87 360 block, 0.060 over. Has stock rods, forged pistons, good stock crank, and more misc parts.

I have owned this truck since 2006. I bought it from the original owner with 125,000 miles on it.
The truck started its life with me 100% bone stock. It slowly grew from a 3" body lift, to a 4" lift, to a 6" lift with the 3" body lift. Here are some pics of it as it grew...
Here is the truck as it looked before we crashed! :)
The price for everything is $2500 cash. I am not currently interested in separating any parts at all, and I will not take less than the asking price.
Someone could either use this truck as the ultimate parts donor vehicle, sell it for parts and make a couple of thousand dollars, repair the A-arm, chop the top, and wheel the crap out of it, or even just do a body swap and have a quick lifted truck!
The truck is located near Senatobia MS. Bring a trailer and the Tahoe will drive right on it!
