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.

It's been a good week for heavy-duty truck buyers. First, Ram revealed the Black Package for its HD trucks, then it rolled out its new Power Wagon, and now Chevy's getting in on the action with its Silverado High Country HD. Okay, so it may not pack quite the attitude of Ram's latest 2500-series offerings, but the High Country HD will come as a welcome addition to the Chevy Trucks range to those looking to pull their horse, boat or other trailer without skimping on creature comforts.

Rolled out a little under a year ago, the High Country trim is Chevy's answer to the likes of the GMC Denali, Ford King Ranch and Ram Longhorn. It has until now only been offered on the light duty, 1500-series Silverado, but now extends to the 2500 and 3500-series HD models, as well.
So what sets a High Country pickup apart from lesser Chevy trucks? You'll be able to pick it out based on its chrome horizontal grille, body-color bumpers, 6-inch tubular side steps, 20-inch chrome wheels (18-inch on the 3500 and 17-inch on the dualie) and, of course, plenty of special badging. But it's inside where the High Country makes its mark, with a cabin decked out in saddle brown perforated leather, seats that are both heated and cooled, eight-inch touchscreen with full MyLink suite, Bose audio and park assist functions front and rear to keep those color-keyed bumpers looking fresh. (Though Chevy hasn't yet showed us the interior of the HD model, it'll presumably look mostly the same as the cab in the 1500 High Country in the gallery below.)
General Motors says its next-generation Chevrolet Tahoe, Suburban, GMC Yukon and Cadillac Escalade models will offer shoppers improved interior differentiation. Car and Driver recently caught up with Chris Hilts, GM's creative manager of interior design, who said that the cabins will all feature unique instrument panels, consoles, center stacks and switchgear moving forward. Apparently GM is now aware that consumers may be bothered by the fact that today's $85,000 Escalade has effectively the same cabin as a $45,000 Tahoe. Hilts says SUV buyers want more refinement than their pickup purchasing counterparts - and those same buyers also want their SUVs to have more exterior differentiation between the company's Silverado and Sierra pickup lines. Shocking.

That all sounds good to us, but we've heard this song and dance before. GM made big waves about how different the new-for-2013 Silverado and Sierra would look from each other, but judging by what we've seen so far, GM's stylists are painting in shades rather than with the full spectrum.

If you can't wait for the next-generation Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, Hennessey says they will have you covered. The Texas-based company has announced it will offer a spate of upgrades for the 2014 Corvette ranging from a range of bolt-on options all the way up to a 1,000-horsepower, twin-turbo system. Buyers can start with a cold air intake, cat-back exhaust or stainless steel long-tube headers, but Hennessey says it will also offer up three stages of forced induction mayhem should those bits and baubles not provide enough thrust.
Those choices start with a supercharger system good for up to 700 hp, though Hennessey will gladly ditch the blower in favor of two turbos. Doing so will spin the crank to the tune of 800 horsepower all the way up to a certifiably ludicrous 1,000 ponies. There's no word on how much these tricks will cost you - or when they will be available, as we're guessing they haven't gotten their hands on the car yet - but you can head over to the Hennessey site to drop them a line if you're curious.
