About “4 X 4 Vette”

When I bought this truck it was a white LS and I started modifing it as soon as I got it home.Everything I did myself except the body paint,recovering the seats in leather and installing the 4:56 gears.
I call this my 4X4 Vette because of the Wipple Supercharged LS 5.3 with 10 lbs boost, Arizona Speed and Marine long tube headers, true dual exaust made with a Flowmaster 2.5 mandrel U-Fit kit, Magnaflow polished cats, Flowmaster Hush Power 2 polished mufflers, Granitelly mass air flow sensor for Corvette power, 4:88 gears to get it moving like a Vette and recovered the bucket seats in leather, console and extended console to give it that Corvette feel and SSBC Tri-Power polished brake calipers with Power Slot rotors front and rear to stop like a Vette.

About “The BEAST”

Isn't it funny how, when you're not even looking for a car, one comes along that you just HAVE to buy? That's the way it was last week. I was out on a parts run for the shop and saw this monster for sale at a local service station/car wash. It was love at first sight, even though I've never even considered a truck like this before! I justified it by putting it in my shop's name and telling myself that it would become the new shop truck..... Yeah, right!

Specs for “The BEAST”

I haven't even had it long enough to know for sure what it has, what company made the parts, who installed them, or when. All I know is that it sounds downright WICKED, has a better ride than I would have guessed, and goes like a scalded cat! I don't know for sure what all's been done to it's 454 cid big block engine, but it's a MONSTER!
