Black Panther's 2000 Silverado 2500 build

Postby Black Panther [OP] » Jul 10 2015, 1:13am

This thread will track my upgrades and work done to my Silverado "The Black Panther".
I brought it last month. It is a 2000 Silverado 2500. Got the 6.0L motor. It sits on a pro Comp 6" suspension lift and 2" body lift with 37" Mud Grapplers.

This is it:

I plan to get a new bed. This one is shot, and bodywork would cost too much. However, the bodywork on the cab will be done. Re-paint the green on the trac bars and shock hoops. Re-tint the front windows. Get a new windsheild (has a big crack on it), and switch the front end back to a Chevy, how I always remember it (ive known this truck awhile before purchase).

So far i've changed the rear axle seal, and added floor mats.

Went up to Jersey to see a friend with the truck. Did excellent on the highway, not one complaint. Cruised at 70 the whole way. Saw some beautiful scenery and found a sweet Duramax to park next to.

Next plan for this truck is to take care of the windsheild!

A few updates. I have finally replaced my windshield! I just need to have the tint strip put back on, like my old one had. It helped alot. The factory glass one isn't enough...lol.

And I painted the trac bars and shock towers. The green is just a little brighter than the original color, but not by much.

Next plan is to get a cowl hood. I was going to change the complete front end, however I am probably going to do that next spring.

Well, looks like the front end swap back to Chevy will happen sooner than later.
I got:
-Cowl hood
-new lights/parking lights
-grill
-Lh/Rh side fenders

I still need to get a bumper, bowtie for the grill. The upper fan shroud I think changes too? I have another one in my garage that will be going on.

Updates!
Got the Chevy front end on. Everything needs to be painted now. I took some rust oleum black gloss paint and sprayed inside and behind the fenders so they do not need to be taken off again.

The hood needs to be adjusted a little, and fenders maybe too.
