Bought this truck in 2005 with 119,000 miles. Was in mint condition was stolen and all the badges and info was taken off. I recovered it drove it from Arizona to CO where it sat in storage for four years till 2011. Drove it to NC where paint has been flaking and rusting. I have about 85% of my swap parts (got the 4.8L with 4L60E. The goal is to have a component from every year range and model of S series vehicle in some capacity. The S series are the smallest truck/SUV GM made so thats why I consider them the Runt of the litter. (yea im not forgetting about the chevy Luv lol!)

Will get new carpet and upholster the seats dont know what to do with the dash and cracks. Since I have a drive by wire setup from a 2012 Silverado the pedal wont work in the S-10 it curves off to the right hitting the xmsn tunnel.
