PostSubject: My Rides!!   August 17th 2009, 10:45 am

First off, my 1993 GMC Sierra K1500. 4X4, 5.0L, 4L60E (brand new, btw!) JASPER reman FTW! 118K miles. It was garage kept since new, washed and waxed on a regular basis, and has had Mobile 1 run through it since it was picked up at the dealership in '93. It's fully loaded, and it's been babied it's whole life, the inner bed itself has very few scratches. I could probably count them on both hands. I use it to drive around when I don't want to drive my car, and to pick up antique radios for my hobby. I restore them, it's pretty fun.

Plans: Get around to installing the amp for the speakers, then my 2 10" subs, and a amp and box for that. And get the hood repainted sometime. It's not bad, but it has a lot of chips where it meets the grille. That's about it. It will never see a mud track.



My other truck is a 1993 GMC Sierra C2500. Base, 4.3L V-6, 5 speed, 254,000 miles. Currently for sale. I liked it so much, I made sure that what I replaced it with was going to "look" the same, but have more options. Worked out pretty well. This was my dads, ordered new, been dogged ever since. I got it in 2005, and it's been a slow downward slope ever since. I love it to death, but I'm not spending all my money keeping it going.
When new:

As it sits now:

Interior is just shot. Period. Seat is tattered, floor has holes in it around the accelerator and clutch, all that stuff.

And last, is my Sunday Car.

1994 Lincoln Town Car Signature Series, 4.6L V-8, 130K miles, looks new inside and out. She and the truck both compete for the garage Wink

That's all I got Very Happy

Pretty decent. The 5.0 *can* easily leave a 20-25 foot long streak of rubber, but I only did it once. I'm not much on "dogging" my vehicles.

If I cna find one, my next one will be the " 454 SS " Very Happy

Very nice system 93... Man you should replace those kenwoods with some Polk Audio SR 124 12's with a Polk Audio PA 1200.1 bridge the subs and stuff them into a sealed box... That along with your JL Audio car speakers would give such great sound quality you'd be amazed!

I'm going to either get some Rockford Fosgate P3's, or Fi Audio BTL's soon.


Fi's are hand built to your specifications, they are some of the most elite subwoofers in the world.

I kind of miss the manual. I like the fact that I don't have to keep constantly shifting, but I still miss being able to down/up shift when I want to.


The 4x4? I haven't even used it, aside from when I tested it for about 5 seconds before I bought it Very Happy

Why have 4x4 if your never going to use it?

I bought the truck because I liked it, and the Service Records showed it to be a diamond in the rough. I could care less if it was 2WD, 4WD, or if it was $WD and 4WD didn't work. I'm never going to get stuck going down my driveway, and I'm not going to need it on the paved roads.

It's like a smoke alarm in my/your house. It's there, I'll probably never use it, but it's nice to know it's there when it's needed.


I don't go mudding or anything, because I don't see the point in putting all that extra strain on the transfer case, engine, transmission, etc. I use my truck for two things, and two things only.

Driving around, when I don't want to drive my car, and hauling around old radios, furniture, etc.
