2002 Chevy 3500 Dually

I drive a 2002 Chevy 3500 single cab dually with a 8.1L 496 big block with a ZF6 transmission. I bought my truck about 4-5 months ago and it was in Waco, Tx. I bought the truck with only 80k miles on it. There were a few imperfections on the truck like the bed has a few cracks and the paint has a bunch of scratches but in all fair I thought it was a good deal. I got the truck and put some Moto Metal wheels on that I had just laying around.

So far I’ve spent about $5,000 on it just putting a new Alpine iLX-W650 stereo in it and some 12” Kicker subs. I’ve also put a cold air intake in it and put some tow mirrors on it. I’ve also gotten 5% tint all the way around including the brow on the front windshield. The thing I like the most about my truck is my motor. It’s a fun and powerful motor that I enjoy driving as a daily (expect the part where I don’t pass a gas station ever).

In the future, I’m going to end up putting an 8” Rough Country suspension lift kit on it with some KMC XD wheels on it. I’m also going to either build a flat bed or buy one to throw on the truck and then I’m going to repaint the truck a Nardo Grey with a teal flake. My goal is to get as close to a SEMA truck as possible but without being a SEMA truck. All I want is to be able to drive around and catch people’s attention and enjoy the always asked question of “if they could take a picture of the truck” or “may I hop in the truck.”
