85 Chevy 1/2 Ton 4x4 On 1 Ton Chassis. Fresh 454, Trans, Transfer Case And Diffs on 2040-cars
Saint Clair Shores, Michigan, United States
|Hi everyone, I'm selling my 85 chevy "1/2" ton 4x4. It currently sits on a 1 ton suspension with 8+ inches of lift. The engine is a fresh 454 big block with a performance RV cam, Edelbrock intake and Edelbrock 750 cfm carb. Blaster coil. Roller rockers! All the good stuff pushing around 450hp.Trans is a freshly rebuilt automatic with 2200 RPM stall. Transfer case was rebuilt at the same time. Rancho shocks all the way around. 14 bolt detroit locker rearend with fresh 4:56 gears. Front diff just had new seals and fresh 4:56 gears installed also. Hedman headers into dual exhaust. Runs strong! With the 37x12.5x15 Super Swampers, she'll climb up and through nearly anything you throw at her. B&M floor shifter gets that annoying lever out of your way while heading of road. Though it has been off road it has never ben beat on! Brakes are good all around!
The body is very solid for a 28 year old truck...but it does have a couple of areas that rust have set in. I will include pictures of these areas. Rockers are solid! Just the very end of both doors and right behind the rear tires...but nothing beyond repair. Truck still presents very well. I would recommend different tires if you plan to drive this truck on the highway.
Interior has 2 racing bucket seats with 5 point harnesses. Full gauge cluster and tach. Awesome running truck. Heater has been deleted...but I have everything to install heater back in place.
As much as I hate to part with it...the wife needs a new car since the arrival of our grandson. If you have any questions please feel free to ask and I'll answer them as quickly as possible.
I will not deliver...local pick up only. However...I will work with any shipper you arrange.
No warranty offered or implied
Good luck and happy bidding everyone.
Would entertain trade or partial trade for nice Jeep Wrangler...extended cab diesel 4x4...or nice nova.

General Motors has announced a large investment in its Spring Hill, Tennessee facility. The former home of Saturn production will be getting a $167 million addition to a previously announced $183 million, to cover a pair of new midsize vehicles. The investment is expected to create 1,800 jobs at the factory.

That $350 million is being divvied up for a pair of programs at Spring Hill. The first will take the bulk of the money ($223 million) and create 1,000 of the 1,800 jobs, while the other will take the remaining $127 million and generate the leftover 800 positions. But GM says the investment will cover "midsize vehicle programs." So what could they be?
The leading candidate in our minds is a new crossover for Buick, called the Anthem, that will slot between the Encore and Enclave, but will be slightly smaller than the Equinox and Terrain. As we've explained, the new model will likely be the first product to sport GM's new D2UX platform, which will eventually replace both the Delta and Theta platforms. Spring Hill is already building the Equinox, so there could be some credence to this theory.

The summer of 2010's recall hit parade continues unabated today, with General Motors having just announced that it is asking 243,403 owners of its 2009-2010 Lambda crossovers to bring their three-row haulers in for inspection. The culprit? Second-row seat belts in select Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia, and Saturn Outlook CUVs have "failed to perform properly in a crash."
According to GM, a second-row seat-side trim piece is to blame, as it can impede the upward rotation of the buckle after the seat is folded flat. As a result, if the buckle makes contact with the seat frame, cosmetic damage can occur, potentially requiring additional force to operate the buckle properly. So far, no great shakes, but in the process of applying that additional force, the occupant may push the buckle cover down to the strap, potentially revealing and depressing the red release button. As a result of this, the belt may not latch, or in certain cases, it may actually appear to be latched when, in fact, it isn't.
Chevrolet has thrown down the next hand in the pickup truck poker wars and revealed at least a couple of potential aces - depending on which numbers matter most to you. The 2014 2014 Silverado 1500 with its 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V8 gets 335 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque, is mated to a six-speed automatic, can tow 11,500 pounds with the optional Max Trailer Package and costs the same as the outgoing Silverado, $24,585 (*including $995 destination fee). Chevy says the Silverado also stands atop the fuel economy charts when comparing any competitor with a V8 engine - and some competitors with V6 engines. The two-wheel drive model returns 16 miles per gallon city, 23 mpg highway, 19 mpg combined in two-wheel drive guise and 16 mpg city, 22 mpg highway and 18 mpg combined as a four-wheel drive.
For context around those numbers, the most fuel efficient V8-powered 2013 Ford F-150 pickups lose about two mpg in every metric compared to the Silverado, the 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost returning 16 city, 18 highway and 22 combined in two-wheel drive. However, that EcoBoost does have 365 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque. You can get a Ram 1500 with a 3.6-liter V6 that gets 25 mpg highway, but it has 305 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque. The 2013 Ram with the 5.7-liter Hemi V8 and its 395 hp and 407 lb-ft drops one mpg in every category to the Silverado. Its tow rating is 200 pounds beyond its nearest competitor, the F-150 with the Max Trailer Tow Package.
Elsewhere, the new Silverado gets a quieter cab with a redesigned interior, a new bed with improved load-management possibilities, disc brakes all around, tweaked steering and suspension, along with free standard scheduled maintenance for two years or 24,000 miles.
