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.

We recently drove the brand-new 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and found it to be vastly improved compared to the outgoing model. And now that The General's pickup trucks have been squared away, it's time to focus our attention onto their passenger-friendly companions, the Chevrolet Tahoe and GMC Yukon (above).

Our spy photographers have passed along a huge smattering of photos (and a video), showing the new SUVs out testing. Both the short- and long-wheelbase models were spied, and while the overall shape of the vehicles hasn't changed all that much, we expect the updates to be substantial. In addition to new powertrain options, like GM's new small-block V8, we expect the interiors of both SUVs to get massive makeovers, providing better materials throughout their cabins and quieter, more refined environments. We even hear that some trick new suspension developments may be in store for upper-end models.
Visually, these spy shots allow us to see a couple of new details on the SUVs' front and rear fascias, including LED running lamps on the Yukon and some interesting LED taillamp treatments. Of course, the obvious third party missing from this set of photos is the Cadillac Escalade, but as we reported earlier, GM is working to further differentiate the 'Slade from the rest of the fullsize SUV lineup, and is working to make the new model "much less ostentatious."
General Motors is recalling some 426,240 sedans that may have a faulty transmission shift cable, according to a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration report this morning. The recall concerns a fault within four-speed automatic transmissions equipped on 2007-2010 Saturn Aura models, and 2008-2010 Chevrolet Malibu and Pontiac G6 models.

The report specifies that tabs on the transmission shift cable may fracture and separate. Such a fault could cause a discrepancy between the actual position of the transmission and the apparent position of the shift lever.
GM is currently working to notify owners of the vehicles in question, and dealers will check and replace shift cables free of charge. Scroll down to read the complete NHTSA report.
Quentin Tarantino fans will likely remember Vincent Vega's cherry 1964 Chevrolet Malibu Convertible in Pulp Fiction. In a movie drenched in automotive references, the Malibu is very nearly a character in and of itself, and it serves as the subject of Vega's soliloquy about the kind of man who vandalizes another's automobile. It also happened to be Tarantino's personal car when the film was shot, and was apparently stolen shortly after production wrapped. Now police have located the car some 19 years later.
As it turns out, the thieves cloned the vehicle identification number from another '64 Malibu and had the car registered under the new digits. It was then sold to an unsuspecting buyer. Police happened upon the duplicate VINs while investigating another potential theft. Right now, it's unclear whether Tarantino has taken possession of the Chevrolet, if it has remained in the possession of the fraud victim, or whether it's caught somewhere in the gears of justice. Either way, you can catch Vega's memorable thoughts on the car keying in the Pulp Fiction clip below. But consider yourself warned: the video contains explicit language as Not Safe For Work as it comes.
