Truck comes with a nice set of replacement passenger side doors and a nice set of front fenders (complete with inner fenderwells and stock flares), if you prefer swap out the modified fenders and cut-out flares. All are in good condition, off of other 1998-2000 Summit White trucks, so no painting is needed.
Truck also comes with a new Flowmaster Force II 3" cat-back exhaust system.
Truck also comes with a new drivers side interior door handle assembly, 2 new power mirrors and a new power mirror switch assembly.
Needs: Once warmed-up, truck is blowing white smoke out of the exhaust and misfiring, and the computer is throwing a misfire code and check engine light for it. Smells like anti-freeze. I suspect a cracked intake manifold, head or block? There appears to be no excessive exhaust gas pressure or oil in the coolant, and no coolant in the oil. The top end of the motor had just been redone, including all new gaskets, but coolant is still leaking into the exhaust somewhere.
Passenger side doors are dented (wife backed into it, in the driveway!) (replacement doors included.) The A/C system needs evacuated and recharged, now that the leaking lines and accumulator have been replaced. Front windshield has a crack on the passenger side, by the A-pillar. The door locks are frozen if you try to use the key, but they lock and unlock fine, from the power buttons inside or with the keyfob remote. The drivers side interior door handle broke (common issue with these 95-00 trucks) (new door handle included.) The power mirrors do not work (new mirrors and switch assembly included). The exhaust system over-axle pipes, near the muffler exit, are rusting through (new cat-back exhaust system included.) Some body rust and paint peeling. It could use a good cleaning, inside and out. Please see all pics.
I have way too many projects to work on than time allows, and I'm downsizing my vehicle fleet. Private seller. Clear Ohio title in-hand, no liens... ready to transfer to the next prospective owner. Comes with a thick folder full of receipts and documentation.

It was 1966 when Chevrolet launched its challenger to the wildly successful Ford Mustang, the Camaro. While the competition between the two brands was already healthy, the arrival of the Camaro set off one of the most intense, model-to-model rivalries in the industry.
That competitive spirit hasn't stopped Chevy and the Camaro from wishing Ford's iconic muscle car a Happy 50th Birthday as the Ford's April 17 anniversary rolls around. These two cars have been linked over the years, and while the rivalry took a break for a few years in the 2000s, today's competition between the Camaro and Mustang is as fierce as it's ever been.
You might recall that this friendliness when it comes to major milestones isn't too rare. Ford put on quite a display for General Motors' hundredth anniversary back in 2008. As the Camaro's fiftieth birthday approaches in 2016, we wouldn't be surprised to see the Mustang sending its best wishes to its Bowtie rival.
Looking to make the launch of the 2014 Corvette Stingray as efficient as possible, Chevrolet will be limiting the numbers of its dealers that can sell the all-new coupe and convertible. According to Automotive News, sales of the C7 Corvette will initially be limited to less than a third of Chevy's total dealership network when the 'Vette goes on sale this summer.
Only 900 dealers out of more than 3,000 locations nationwide will be allowed to sell the new Corvette at first, and the reason for this is so that there are no shortages at dealers that can actually get the cars sold. The article says that the 900 dealerships chosen represented 80 percent of total Corvette sales in 2012.
Some of the requirements dealers had to make to get initial allocation of Stingray sales include having sold at least four Corvettes in 2012 and having a Corvette Stingray specialist who will be required to have gone through a training session costing more than $2,000 per attendee. Once demand for the 2014 Corvette Stingray begins to subside - approximately six to nine months after it goes on sale - then allocation could open up to more dealers, but the report indicates this could happen following the 2014 model year.
When it comes to technology used in racecars, we generally expect it to trickle down to production cars, not the other way around. Well, Pratt & Miller has developed a new rear-facing radar that operates in a similar fashion to what we're used to in modern blind spot detection systems, only it is also capable of tracking cars as they approach and relaying vital information to the driver via a large display screen.
The innovative radar system debuted at last weekend's 12 Hours of Sebring for Corvette Racing, and this system makes perfect sense for endurance races like this since the cars sometimes have to drive through the night and in poor weather conditions.
The radar can detect cars even with poor visibility, and uses easy-to-distinguish symbols for the driver to identify.
