All the parts to get this rig put back together have arrived, except for the bumper. Unfortunately, pretty much everything in front gets assembled from the bumper up. All I can do right now is R&R the front cooling stack, front sway bar end links, and passenger side axle.

Love my GM trucks & they hold their value. I had a nice 2008 Silverado 2500HD Turbo Diesel that I picked up used (one owner) for $40K. Sold it in 2017 for $26K. Now driving a very nice 2017 Silverado (High Country) 2500HD Turbo Diesel. It was a driver shuttle vehicle at the Daytona, Coke Zero 400 in 2017. They put 60 miles on it at the Speedway which took $5,000 off of the list price. Truck has not had one issue. In fact just drove it 2,100 miles, Florida to Texas and back to pick up three frames. Good luck with your truck !!!

Put that on the side and no one asks questions and you can go where ever you want. Free admission everywhere. :)

Actually I was asked so may time what it was an "Official Vehicle" of that I took that part off (under the doors). NASCAR had put on all the decals & I hated to take them off.

The last piece of the puzzle finally showed up. It's a bit brodozer for my taste, but it was considerably cheaper than going with all stock parts like I had wanted to. Now I just need to recover from this liver biopsy and get the parts painted so I can get this rig back together and inspected/registered.

If it’s too brodozer for you bring it by my house. I’ll gladly swap it for my stock LMM parts ;)

It's finally getting warm enough to paint, so I'm hoping to color match the bumper this weekend. I haven't actually made much progress beyond collecting parts because I've been asked to replace the front fence before starting another car project.

Hey fellow LMM pilot! Mine is a 2007.5, so the first MY of the LMM. It's such a great motor and transmission. Mine has towed a couple small cars behind it, including the donor a couple weeks ago, and you almost don't even know they're there.

Blew up my 03 duramax and this is os my interum tow rig. 02 1500 5.3L. W/5/6 drop. It does surprisingly well, but still hoping to find "the deal" on a new diesel soon. We are pulling the Goblin to Denver in 2 weeks.
