Here are pictures of my truck with my most recent modifications to it. They were taken at the local resevoir. If you look closely you can see the addition of M3 mirrors, as well as my tonneau cover and Yokohama tires.
This truck started its life out actually as a fleetside truck. However, it only had 24000 miles on it. It currently has 28,000. I have had this truck almost a year now, and in this time it has transformed itself into a sportide s10. I first began this project by removing the old bed and adding the sporside bed. However, this bed did not include a tailgate or bumper, so i had to purchase these from Auto Bumper Exchange in Ft. Wayne, Indiana. They are very nice people and would recommend them to anyone. I next added a tonneau cover, and lowered it 3 inches all the way around. Next came time for paint, and i decided to go with the factory white again, but, added a very faint pearlescent into the clear coat, in the right conditions, a bit of pearl can be seen, it looks very nice in the sun, but is subtle. After the paint was finished, I added the custom cut orange stripes which were made by Apex Graphics in New Baltimore, Michigan. Needless to say, this truck is still far from finished, but it's getting closer. I am proud to say that i did all of this work myself, with the exception to the actual painting. I did all the prep work prior to painting. This project has taken well over 300 hours of work. I am very pleased with the results thus far.
Its a bit tough to see, but if you look at the wheel wheels, u can see how nicely the Yokohamas tuck into the wheel wells. However, it does need something else. Can you say 18's?
The Eibach springs have actually given me a little more than a 3 inch drop in the front, which gives it a nice level look. The rear is dropped three inches as well. It does sit a little lower than an extreme, but the tonneau cover adds about 2 inches to the rear, so it appears to sit somewhat higher.
