    Looks good man. Nice job cleaning up the blade. I also like the new wheels on that truck.

    Yes it a 6.5 TD, i actually just replaced the engine in it 2 months ago, so it has a fresh rebuild. Next summer it is getting a new body:)
    Im saving up for a chip and a aftermarket turbo...
    I paid 1k for the plow and the truck came with it, off my ex-gf's grandma..
    I paid 300 for the tires and rims, they are my summer set.

    Syracuse is right in the center of NY state, and fabius is just 20 min south of that.
    The steelies in the pic above used to be aluminum but i had a hankerin for black. I am taking my truck to an alighnment shop next friday, so i will install them next weekend. I just installed the temp-auto-dim-compass mirror, and the overhead console, and the 60/40 split bench seat out of a 99 tahoe. Im into cheap mods.

    hey there's nothing wrong about cheap mods. best way sometimes. looks like a good truck. Just needs some panels a nice coat of paint. Make her look like new. I would change the dash over to the newer rounded style.

    Yeah, the truck is a 1994 VIN:F 2500 Silverado, 4L80E automatic (all original tranny with 208k on it and had the plow installed since it rolled off the dealer lot) The truck has a total of 28k miles on it, with the engine rebuild at about 205k miles. I love this truck soo much, i was contemplating on doing a cummins conversion, but i got a sick deal on a 599 6.5 diesel block...

    Nice truck. How do you like the Hydraulic Minute Mount 1? I have one and the plugs leak on the bumper..

    I am VERY seriously thinking about doing that, i have collected tons of info on the swap, not going to be easy due to the diesel... The dash is the only thing that makes the truck look like a 94, ive dont all subtle changes to make it look newer.Ive added the newer mirrors off a 98 tahoe, the floor 4wd shifter is from a 97 K-1500, and stuff like that..

    Yeah, they did leak BAD! But i just replaced all the fitting when i rebuilt the engine, so now they dont leak at all. But i bought the expensive quick connects, there is a difference in quality. I love the hydraulic, my buddy has a ram with electric over hydraulic, and i just dont like hearing the pump whine so loud, He has the pump mounted on his passenger side fender.
