It would be nice to like a comment or picture without having to type one out.

To each their own.

Technically, it's still a Chevy! [emoticon]


Funny you should say that. I thought it WAS a Chevy when we bought it.
Someone had changed all the badges and trim to Chevy.
And I was so involved with looking at the truck itself, didn’t even give the title a second glance.
First clue was when I removed the tailgate trim panel ,also replaced with a Chevy one, and the original appearing tailgate had GMC stamped in it.
Further inspection showed the glove box tag with “Sierra” package.
And the grill is the aftermarket one you see in the pic, so that was no clue either. I re-used it and just fitted a GMC logo to it.


That's a good looking truck. I had a semi-rare 1982? Chevy K20 Suburban. Loaded with what appeared to be all available options, even quad shocks on the front axle. I drove to work and on hunting trips. Had a couple local boys put a cheap but decent paint job on it. My son was in the 11th grade and wanted it bad. I "sold" it to him. Of course, he put a lift kit and Buckshot Monster Mudders on it. Of course he took the 3rd row back seat out. And of course, the Turbo Hydramatic 400 had to be rebuilt. When he went off to college I traded him back a 1991? Chevy Sport Truck, which was a SS454 clone. Wish I had them both back.

The Cheyenne and Silverado are the exact same truck with different trim. They're both Chevy's but it's a good example of parts switching and marketing nonsense... The Silverado was a top of the line truck but the Cheyenne was a more basic truck. I know that all parts don't match but I've been replacing parts on these two trucks for decades and I've never had a mismatch between the part numbers for both. I believe this is "somewhat" true between the Chevy and GMC lines as well. Also with Cadillac and GMC.

This is an interesting short article about the basic differences between the GMC and Chevy truck line. There is a wealth of information concerning parts exchanging between the two on many forums. Just adding to the conversation.... It looks great!!!

GMC was GMC and Chevrolet was Chevrolet until 1973.
That was the year that they became one.

I drove it down to the museum to pick up my mail.
Hopefully the 410 goes in next week.

Finished the aux bed tank install, got three more holes through the cab floor with water tight connectors, one for the 14/2 to the fuel pump and two extra for 10 gauge so cord for 120 volt 30 amp in and out for the 2800 watt inverter. Wired the pump timer to the pump and to the low voltage fuse panel in the cab, twist the timer for 30 minutes and it will transfer about 15 gallons and shut off.

Changed out a flat on an inner dual:

To free the inside rim took a little more persuasion but no hammers were involved.

So some blocks of wood that are normally used for leveling, a couple of spare ratchet straps, 12-ton bottle jack, electric impact wrench with 22mm socket, torque wrench with extension, claw hammer to remove hub cap and some time was required to get this 9-ton truck rolling again.
