    well i pulled the trigger on a 2000 k 3500 chevy from another member on the site! when i purchased it two weeks ago the front bumper and headlights were junk so i got a new front bumper and all new headlights then i found tailights as well. my buddy has a brand new extang tonneau cover i am going to see if it fits, ill post pics wed when we try to install it! this truck is solid as they come ezxcept for a few minor leaks i have to address.

    ide love to find some alloy rims for it though.....

    I'd leave the rims that are on there. I like the original factory look. New wheels just don't look that good on older trucks, but to each his own.

    That looks great! You don't see too many of those OBS GMs in black.

    Nah. Never liked those. They just look so fake.

    The stock steel wheels with the chrome caps and rings look perfect on those OBS GM's. I had the same truck in white and painted the wheels black. The black wheels with the chrome caps and rings looked really good.

    I checked my photobucket account and don't have any of that Chevy I used to have.

    Got a spare wheel/tire? Try it on that. I think you'll like it.
