2001 GMC Sierra z85

Well due to a series of unfortunate events, my uncle now owns Taylor, my beloved 2008 Tacoma PreRunner. My new truck is named Shelia. Shes a 2001 GMC Sierra z85 4x4 regular cab long bed and will have to do for a few years until I can get another taco. The feisty bitch got into a bar fight before I got her which is why I got such a good deal.



Her good side doesn't look too bad though





Okay so heres the break down.
THE GOOD:
4.8L v8
4x4
265/75/r16 nitto grappler A/Ts
rubber floors (factory believe it or not)
manual transfer box
auto rear diff locker
40/20/40 bench seat w/buckets
z85 tow/off road package w/full skids
Decent MPGs @17mpg
shorter wheel base then ext cab short bed sierra/silverado
good ground clearance

THE BAD:
Heavy
Needs buku body work
auto locker gets annoying on road sometimes
tail pipe is cracked
dome light is out
high miles (180,000)
manual windows

MODS SO FAR:
named her Shelia
removed SL badges
removed dumbass AT&T 'bluetooth' shit
removed lower valence
mini tool set
buku bright construction light for off road repairs
Rear 6x9 speaker conversion


PLANS:
Fix body
Replace lights & fix all the minor things
40% tint
crank the torsion bar to level
blisten 5125s all around
winch (or heavy duty come-a-long)
255/85/r16s
Off road rims
brush guard
tail light guards
fender flares
bazooka tube
select-able locker
new exhaust
new headers
CAI
Tool box (original owner took it and knocked $600 of price)
4x4 graphics
