Just joined this group after picking up a used black 2002 Xtreme standard cab with only 8500 miles on it. 4.3V6, 5spd, air, tilt/cruise, pw/pl, AM/FM/CD with stock speakers. I'm already having a lot of fun with it. Minor mods include ventvisors, shelf-it interior shelf, bowtie 3rd brake light cover and mini bugshield.

Coming soon: Gaylord's Speedsturr Wing hard cover, cowl induction hood, Rhino liner, etc.

Thanks for the forum and the group!

Thanks everyone! Even though I have to drive this through the winter, I plan on taking care of it as much as possible: frequent washes, lots of lubrication and all that good stuff!

It's a new design hard cover by Gaylords...not really a wing but a small upswept spoiler at the rear of the cover. I like the way it looks and thought it would look good on the x.

check pics @ www.gaylordslids.com (NOT the Speedsturr "Speedbump" but the "Speedstur Wing".

The Chevy dealer that had this truck picked it up at an auction during the summer. I first saw it in August and they were asking $12999 sticker, $12299 "best price" back then. Not bad, but I continued to look around to replace my normal daily driver. When I went by the dealership 3 weeks ago, it was still there. Knowing that it was the same truck, I went in with an offer of $9999. They countered at $10999 and along with a few minor additions, I decided to buy it at that price. I found a set of stock steel rims to mount the blizzaks on to save the normal x wheels for summer use only.

I believe the truck would have sold quicker in this area with an automatic and extended cab. I prefer the looks of the standard cab and really wanted the 5spd. I thought the deal was pretty good.

Thanks again for the welcome!

Thanks for the comments! I think I made a great score, too!
There were some minor issues: the tailgate has a dent on the top rail (which will be covered by the hard cover). The bed is scratched up (that will be taken care of by the Rhino Liner I'm having done just after New Year's)...and there are two paint imperfections on the hood. Those will have to wait for the cowl induction hood replacement down the road.

I have looked at 2 different manufacturers for that hood, Keystone "Good Hood" and A&A Fiberglass. I would like to re-stripe the new hood with the stock stripes: does anybody if either of those two hoods or some other design "accepts" the stock striping without too much modification? If not, I will probably remove the stripes from the whole truck....

Thanks!

Mike Paz
