They are cheap Amazon bed stiffeners for a taco but the worked out fine just had to grind a small tab off, my bed was bent out on the drivers side quite a bit to where it affected the tailgate closing when I inherited it from my grandfather (had local farmers fill it to the brim with potatoes and it pushed it out is my guess) so took a chance and they worked great. Can’t figure out how to post a link but $58 on amazon
Facelift for the rig, I’ve been wanting to do this for years but the stealth winch bumpers are hard to find for early gen2 (2008). Finally found one on ebay, took a day off and got the winch bumper, winch, under hood arb compressor, and new led fogs installed. Really happy with the results.
Some good shots of it here What have you done to your GFC this week - #155 by Chuck.D
20+ nights in it this summer and there is a few minor things I changed or plan to change
- I switched the stove to make it removable. You see lots of builds with the drawer stove. Bad idea IMO. I use it sometimes in place but more often I prefer to use a table or the table on the tire swing. We use a MSR windburner to boil water so the stove is not used as much.
-I will modify the downstairs to allow the second bed section to go inline to make a lower chill bed.
-haven’t used the Lagun table yet. Maybe this winter but I will keep the mount for now.
-The thin driver side box is our favourite. We use it to hold our chairs, ladder and step while we drive and it becomes a useful bar top when we are parked.
Fuck yesss more Chevy/ GMCs. Beautiful truck sir.
Cap Reef is one of my favs. Hoping to make my way back soon.
@Casablanca More Chevy/GMC in general? Or more Chevy/GMC in Capitol Reef?
I feel like the majority of GFC go on Tacomas, so always stoked to see the GMC and Chevys.
More Chevy and GMC pics please! Rarely see another Colorado with a GFC in the SF Bay Area.
Parked outside of Steamboat Springs…… the mountain in the background with the cut trails on the right is the Steamboat Resort
Found a nice spot out in the Cascades overlooking Dragon’s Tail and Mount Raineer.
Hiked up a quick trail to Red Top Mountain.
Learned the next day my basecamp had a lot of Black Bear tracks around it.
Broke my antenna.
Decided to drive out through a unmaintained track with ground soaked by the Atomspheric River. This was THE greasiest mud I’ve ever driven on. Some hairy situations and some great learning opportunities.
Now, I go home and try to figure out how to clean my filthy car and how in the world I dry the tent with a forecast of rain all this week.
