Operation Crusher

Gonna keep everything in one place. I'm about to get some new things so I figured I'd start this up.

Totally stock except for clear corners, and custom scratches.





Minus valance and mudflaps





Mud flap scars :(



Custom radiator damage, she's still holding up. Knock on wood!!





35x12.5x15



Waiting on the bodylift and stuff to here. Stay tuned!

Thanks. Yeah, the truck and a street sign got into it and that was the result. I didn't get any close ups of the valance but you can see the scars in that one pic.

C'mon UPS!!!!!!!!!!!!

Got my body lift yesterday. I've just started to do the bed. Probably won't have time to do the cab today. But I can atleast see what kind of clearance I'll have in the back.

Left the last spare tire rod thingy, the one with the crook on the end, in a friends car when her spare tire was stuck. And she traded it in a couple weeks ago!!!!!!!!!!! Damn it!!!!!!!!!!! Gonna have to get one off a friend, good thing I didn't get a flat!!

I love those tails. Got the same ones on my 99. Seems like people either love them or hate them. Personally, I'm a big fan. Good choice.

Keep us posted on how the lift goes.

That's what I'm going for. I got the bed lifted up yesterday and put the 35s on the back. Looks funny as hell. I drove it to work today like that to see if I would have any rubbing problems in the back.

It rubbed just a little in one spot. Probably that one big hump in the road. Just gonna have to take it easy until I get the SL ordered. I probably won't have time until this weekend to get the front end done. My Grand Am's heater core busted or something, so I need to get that fixed.

I've been running it like that for a year or so. It doesn't seem to get any hotter then it used to and really doesn't run hot at all for that matter. I just hope it keeps holding!!
