So, In 2011 I wanted to upgrade from my s10's to a full-size truck! I saw a listing on craigslist for an 01 regular cab stepside...an old man had this truck he listed it as just a sierra 1500 regular cab stepside with 150k miles. I got one of my buddies to drive me out there to look at it... after a test drive I knew it was mine. $4800 cash and I was driving off in it... fully paid for. Unfortunately it was raining that day so I went straight home. When I parked it for the first time in my driveway I took this picture.

I liked it until I realized I couldn't take my tailgate off .... I dropped my buddies tailgate and it caught me in the gut..... I was expecting it to slowly drift down like mine... I do like it pretty good though... everyone asks about it which makes me feel special.

Yep Yep! I've started doing a little cam research. Got to find time to call and talk to someone at Comp. to get a better idea.

Not much to build... stock lq4 minor cam.... maybe a little head work. My goal isn't very high.... most of the heavy lifting will be in the tune. Advance the timing some... really bring it to life.

Im not sure I have the time... i'm really surprised I found the time to actually be involved in the transmission swap. 50hrs a week plus an infant is rough.

Id love to build one from the block up though... we'll see come February/march
