Have we heard of a syclone body kit? Its a whole different truck, not a body kit. 280HP turbo 4.3, all wheel drive monster. But if you are wanting the body kit, be ready to fork out some cash. Look around at junkyards and you might be able to grab the emblems on ebay.

Re: syclone body kit

Ya, I know that a scyclone is a different truck. I want to know if someone makes a replica kit for it.

Right now it's a buyers market and there are lots of cheap trucks out there if you are serious. You could buy one in need of a little TLC for what you would pay to get all the cladding alone.

With regards to the emblems, there aren't any. They only came with stickers.

Re: syclone body kit

OK,
That kit looks more like the Sonoma GT style body kit.
I Have found a guy who did exactly that,bought all the cladding,guess what you got a few hrs left too buy his whole truck thats up on ebay.

Re: syclone body kit

There's a guy that's been working on replica molds for a while now, goes by the name of PPI Typhoon, he's still got a long ways to go on the rest of the molds but he promises the kit won't be outrageous like the ones from sportmachines.com

Re: syclone body kit

on a side note:

Will the Syclone gauges on the SportMachines site fit a normal 1991 S10? What other modifications would I need to do to make it work....I do not currently have a Tch but noticed the Syclone gauges do!?

Id like to do the conversion...

Youll need the bezel which runs another $100+.
Yes,your truck is already wired for a tach,you just need too tie into it,its in the main harness,bigger offwhite wire,passenger side behind the carpet.

By looking at your signature, "a 'small' fender bender" dosn't seem to be your problem.

Kidding of course, got any pics of your current truck?
