Cool and another transmission guy to help with answers to problems. 😉I always liked small pickup trucks and SUVs like the s-trucks, Tacomas, Dakotas, etc. My last 4 vehicles were all in that vein. So, I've been a transmission mechanic for 20 years and never built a hot rod because I was too busy being a musician with my free time and $. When I started a family and didn't have much time to be out playing all night anymore, I hung up the music and decided I wanted to get into the hot rod thing. I've built hundreds of them for everyone else. Race trucks, monster trucks, a ton of drag cars, resto-mods... if you can think of it, I've built a gear train for it. So naturally, I wanted to hot rod a small truck. The S10 was a perfect choice! There are countless Chevy engines and gear train components to be had, after all. I traded a junk car off to a salvage yard for a 97 S10 extended cab with a locked up trans and a blown motor. Then I built a 4L60E in trade to take anything i wanted from a wrecked 03 suburban. I LS swapped this truck with an NV3500 and a ford 8.8, tuned it, and was driving it in 60 days. It's my daily driver and it is an absolute joy to drive! A perfect hot rod vehicle. S10s can be difficult sometimes, but when you get it right they're things of beauty. I love them!
Have you posted pics of your truck yet?
