Description: As you can tell from my sign on name I REALLY like my truck
- 5 seater truck so the family can all get in when needed(outgrew an extended cab with child #3)
- Didn't really want the 4x4, but there weren't any 2wd crewcabs s10's factory made
- Been a GM kinda guy most all my life(no sympathy needed)
Build Thread:
Current Mods: So far just a leadfootectomy, has definately helped, but speed has been my friend(or demise) for all these years...haha

- Replaced Dumbo ear original mirrors with smaller/sportier "Street Scene Cal-Vu" mirrors
- Purchased a used tonneau cover for $75
- Put on a conveyor belt air dam as pictured to help smooth out the front bumper(now removed)
- Scangauge for instant feedback
- K&N air filter
- Mobil 1 synthetic oil and filter(now back to regular 5w30 and basic filter)
- Bumped up tires to 46 psi, sidewall says 50 max, but tire guy said unless I run a constant load I might get uneven wear in middle of tire with too much pressure????

Planned Mods: - Grill block
- Possibly replacing whole front bumper with a more aero shaped air dam
- Some type of boattail for the really short bed
- Narrower tires(I rarely go 4x4ing)
- Flat wheel covers
- Wheel well covers
- Belly pans if feasible with the 4x4
- DONE(See Above)Get/make a tonneau cover
- DONE(See Above)Possibly external mirror removal or at least smaller ones(got some major Dumbo's on there from factory)
- DONE(Kind-of)(See Above)Front air dam like the Red Baron here
