Scott's 94 GMC Sierra

My name is Scott. I'm from Texas. This is my third OBS and my favorite so far. I work at a truck accessories shop as an installer and the main wiring tech. I've done car audio and such all of my life. Fixing up trucks is the daily grind..

This is what I do and I love it.

_________________________________________

Here's the pictures from the Craigslist ad. He bought it new in Austin and it lived its whole life there. I only live an hour from Austin. Small world it is. I helped him install the engine a few years ago as he's a family friend. I had no idea he was selling it.

Re: Scott's 94 Sierra

Redid the power cables under the hood. 0 gauge in preparation for the system to be installed soon.





Soon I need to get a couple new batteries. Most likely mount one under the bed OR I might stick it on the drivers side where the stock second battery would go on the larger trucks.

Did the lights on the front.
Lowered the rear 2 inches via shackles. I'm going to drop the front 2/3 via coils or spindles and the rear 2 more via front hangers. Still looking for some nice wheels and tires. 18"-20".

Starting to look like something I'd drive.









The cheap eBay lights don't fit like I'd like them to. Seems to be some space between them and the grille in the bottom of the light. I'm thinking of switching to a Chevy paintable grille shell. I'll adjust the fit next weekend with or without a new grille.

Adjusted them pretty well.

Re: Scott's 94 Sierra

Good start. I'm actually taking the lowering parts off my truck. Makes me want to buy one of the many cheap extended cabs around here and lower it with my old stuff.

Thanks. I'd buy the lowering stuff from you if you don't end up reusing it. (Within the next couple weeks)

Nice looking truck you have. I had a 1990 stepside reg-cab like that. I wish I still had it.

Re: Scott's 94 Sierra

Nice. I love these GMT400 trucks. My DREAM truck when I first got my license was a box stock Z71. Oddly enough, I never did get one...

Would love to sell you the parts but the 7 hour drive between us might be a deal breaker, LOL.

Yeah. I'm just going to buy some parts from Chassis Tech.

I've never seen anyone take the parts off and go back up. Why the change of heart?

I have a lowered 2013 SS Camaro and just want my truck back up to hop curbs and drive through muddy fields when i need to. When I lowered it I still had a stock 2005 Silverado crew with all terrains.

Took this with my GoPro. Dirty girl.



Got this amp for the two Kicker CVR 12s I have. I've had that PG preamp for a long time. Have enough nice patch cables to do it. Just need to build a box and install it. Time.. Never enough.

Ordered the flip kit for the rear today. Once I pay it off out of my check I'll order the spindles and springs for the front. Then the shocks. Then install it all.

Going all Belltech. Check OP for part numbers, etc.
