this is a 1985 chevy K20 2500 4x4. this was a truck we were building here at precision diesel service inc. for an employee but he did not have the time or money to finish it, so i bought it from him incomplete.   i will list everything i can possibly remember but im sure i will miss a thing or two. to start with when we got this truck it already had the tires, rims, 4" BDS suspension lift on it. the previous owner had 5-6000 miles on that stuff. the rest of this list is all been done this winter and has less than 300 miles on all of it. welded in new cab corners (full length long ones) inner and outer rocker panels, floor pans, front fenders, doors, bed was all redone prior to paint, tailgate was taken off a 60,000 mile rust free truck, all exterior lights- headlights, turn signals, marker lights, tail lights and put new bulbs in all exterior lights, interior lights, dash, 4x4 shifter bulb, ashtray bulb, dome light bulb. new tonneau cover, fuel tank, rear disk brake conversion, exhaust, all wiring was cut out of engine compartment, and cab and wired specifically for the conversion. has new hood liner insulation. we took the time to reroute the hood latch cable so its completly hidden and not running across the radiator support and inner fender area. motor is a 1994 12 valve p-pumped cummins that had 54,000 original miles on it. we pulled it apart had the head redone completely, all new bearings, seals, gaskets, pistons, rings, rist pins, and cam. there was absolutly no need to do anything to the motor but when we were building it, he wanted it to be all new everything so the truck would last the rest of his life. turbo is an hx-35 and makes 35 psi of boost. the injectors are 200 hp over stock injectors and the pump is an industrial p-pump. all intake/turbo tubes were made here, vacuum/power steering pump is a 93 dodge diesel factory style pump. intercooler and radiator are both 1994 dodge 3500 factory, with two 20" electric fans on an adjustable thermostat. has autometer procomp boost, egt, and trans temp gauge. all the factory gauges work properly, even the speedometer is acurite according to gps. the transmission is an electronic 4L80E automatic with overdrive. it is controlled by a fully tuneable/adjustable optishift trans controller computer from bauman electronics. the software is all included with the truck and i will teach you to use it so you can make changes if you want. the truck runs and drives like it was built this way from the factory. its very smooth and just a ton of power and fun to drive. from what i have figured so far its getting around 20 mpg maybe higher. the seats are out of a 1994 dodge 3500. the carpet is all new factory fit and molded so it looks very nice. interior is mostly black with some charcoal gray. exterior paint is 2012 cadillac gunmetal gray. this is an amazing color and just really stands out in the sun. exhaust is 4" all the way out to a stainless 5" tip. battery trays are custom made aluminum to fit two large 880 cca napa 75 month batteries but at the same time keep them very low and out of sight in engine compartment. all wiring on motor is laid out to be as hidden as possible on the motor and then hidden in the wiper cowl to cross over to driver side where it connects to a factory bulk head connecter. this truck was built to be 100% driveable anywhere at any time and is just that. it could be a show truck although its not perfect by any means it is absolutly beautiful and turns heads everywhere you take it. the injector and pump set up make it idle very rough as if its a pulling truck but as soon as you bring it off idle it smooths right out, and like i said it is 100% driveable. i have drove it back and forth to work and this past weekend ran it down the highway at 75 mph without a single issue. at 55 mph its running about 6 psi of boost 600* on egt and trans temp is about 150*. i currently only have less than 300 miles on it but will try to have 500-600 miles on it before its sold, but i refuse to drive it in the rain or with any salt/sand on the road. so its been hard to get it out with the weather changing so drastically here in indiana. forecast does not look good this week so its parked in the back of the heated shop for now. im sure i have missed several things so call me with any questions or offers. this truck was professionally built right here at Precision Diesel Service inc. in goshen indiana. We are a company that specializes in cummins conversions and currently have four trucks in process as i write this, so i assure you this is done right. i am interested in trades for newer diesel trucks, mostly looking for 2005-2007 ford 6.0L powerstroke 4x4 trucks. call will at 574-361-0449. i dont have a lot of time to respond to a million emails so call or text for fastest response.

Was the C7 Corvette cut from Beyonce's Super Bowl halftime show?

Tue, 05 Feb 2013 11:01:00 EST

Someone was bound to receive a free 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray during the Super Bowl XLVII festivities; it just wasn't who we thought it was going to be. Despite a report back in December that superstar Beyoncé Knowles would be getting an all-new Corvette during her halftime performance, that turned out not to be the case. Joe Flacco, starting quarterback for the Baltimore Ravens, did in fact win a Corvette for his MVP performance.
So what transpired that prevented Beyoncé from rolling on stage in the new Chevrolet? Anyone who knows isn't telling, but according to Yahoo! Autos, General Motors said that for one reason or another a deal "did not work out," and it appears to have been an eleventh-hour change. Regardless of who's to blame or what prevented this from happening, we're sure Chevy has had no problems getting attention for the C7 Corvette since it was introduced last month.

These cars are headed to the Great Crusher In The Sky

Fri, 24 Aug 2012 14:58:00 EST

It happens every year. We bid adieu to some cars and trucks that will be missed, and say good riddance to others wondering how they stayed around so long. Whether they're being killed off for slow sales or due to a new product coming along to replace them, the list of vehicles being discontinued after 2012 is surprisingly long and diverse.
CNN Money has compiled a list of departing vehicles, to which we've added a few more of our own. In the slow sales column, cars like the Lexus HS 250h, Mercedes-Benz R-Class and the full Maybach lineup appear, while the Ford Escape Hybrid, Mazda CX-7 and Hyundai Veracruz are all having their gaps filled with more modern and more fuel-efficient alternatives. Obvious exceptions to the rule include models that still sell in decent numbers like the Jeep Liberty and the Chrysler Town & Country (which will eventually be replaced by a crossover-like vehicle).
Check out our gallery of discontinued cars above, then scroll down for more information.

GM recalls Chevy Express, GMC Savana over rollaway concern

Mon, 21 Jan 2013 08:00:00 EST

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has issued a recall notice for a small number of General Motors fullsize vans due to possible rollaway concerns. On certain 2013 Chevrolet Express and 2013 GMC Savana models, it is possible to remove the key from the ignition without the shifter being in park.
Only 980 total units are being affected by this recall, and GM is fixing the issue by replacing the ignition cylinder and associated keys. Affected Chevy vans were built during most of November and December while its GMC counterpart was only built for a week in November. The recall goes into effect on January 23, and to find out if your vehicle applies to the recall, the GM and NHTSA contact numbers can be found on the official recall notice, which is posted below.
