Lifted Diesel 1999 Chevy Silverado "Big Red"

Recommended Posts

Introducing my latest labor of love, "Big Red." Started life as a two-wheel drive gas truck, until I got a hold of it!


The list of modifications and scratch-built items is pretty long, but I'll do my best to sum it up:

  • Front grill modified to fit custom bumper
  • Front bumper built with evergreen flat stock and diamond plate
  • Craft wire tow hooks
  • Tow-mirrors
  • Lift kit components including all brackets, leaf spring mounts, steering stablizer, shocks and mounts
  • Transfer case mount and crosmember
  • Front and rear "Dana 80 Axles" with breathers
  • Driveshafts
  • Cummins engine swap (Diecast crane donor)
  • Engine/transmission mounts
  • 5 inch turbo back exhaust with 10 inch miter cut stack
  • Cold air kit
  • Exhaust heat shields
  • Windshield banner
  • Tint
  • Body color rear bumper
  • Camo headliner
  • Color matched interior accents
  • Pintle hitch (parts box) with scratch built mount
  • Train horns
  • Tires from SoReal Concepts painted black with added valve stems
