the first thing I plan on doing is buying tires for it. then after that I'm going to get it tuned. the truck has a custom cam and once it warms up, it doesn't like to idle. after that everything that happens will be on a slower time frame. I might change the spark plugs sooner than later, but i'm not sure which ones. I was thinking the NGK TR6ix because that is what I have in my Pontiac Grand Prix GXP and it has a 5.3.

as far as pictures go, I will post some up tomorrow.

The truck is a 2002 Chevy Silverado 1500 extended cab with a composite bed, not stepside. it has 220,000 miles on it but the engine, transmission and transfer case have been rebuilt. the truck has been upgraded with flex fuel fuel injectors. future mods might include caltracs, a return fuel system, a dual fuel pump system, a turbo, a coil over setup for the front end and a 12 bolt rear end.

Be prepared for a lot of questions as I am a total noob when it comes to V8's, RWD and Trucks.

Here is a link to the cam that was installed: http://www.compcams.com/Company/CC/cam- ... =1090&sb=2

I'm changing focus about the truck. going to keep it 4x4, not going to install caltracs.

can you guys suggest some good suspension mods?
