Took everything out of the bed and it still hits a little so the notch will probably have to go in.

On our way back Craig asked me if I checked the tire pressure and I said No, because I just had the tires balanced and put on the rims Wednesday. Last night I started to check them. They all had 30 lbs in them except for the front driver's side and it had 25. Recommended on the tire was 44 lbs. It rode a little better after that.

I need some help finding a shock that will fit. I'm walking out the door but the compressed shock needed to be 14 inches, I think that is right. Anybody know where to find specs on shocks so I can get a good set on it to see how it rides after that. I'd prefer a good stiff shock.

you will probly have to go to the web site of what ever brand you will be using. I would try yo get an adjustable shock so you can try to tune your ride to your liking.
I still think I would just make my own c noch and save come cash.

I'm in the middle of painting the console that David gave me. It's a dark blue, hope it's not too dark. It's the one that it called for that year. We'll see. I hope to have pics of it installed tomorrow.

I got a rubber wheel from one of my buddy's and took the rest of the adhesive off. I think I got a little too close a few times, so I'm sure I screwed something up.

Also got a surprise pic tomorrow that's really going to change the look of it.

my buddy up the road from me that I bought my Tahoe from told me if I'd go buy the correct white paint he'd paint the grille, mirrors, and door handles for me.

$22 for a quart of the paint so I'll be taking him up on it here in the next few weeks.
