I wish! Every place is around $4000 that I could find. I got some decals made & It was still almost $600.

Wow, that looks awesome, nicely done!

Now you just need some mattracks for that mini truck in the back ground. That would make going to get the mail fun. lol

That is an awesome wrap!
I was quoted 5 to 6K to wrap my Crew Cab Chev 2500 HD Short Box in Matte Black - If it was half of that it would be done now.

My decals are boring, but it was within my $600 budget lol.

I wish I could have gotten a full wrap. :(

Erin, pm me. maybe we could wheel and deal. I'm a journeyman bodyman/painter. I'm in the patch now, but still do it on the side. Also there's a new sign shop in Brooks. Frontier signworks. I work with the guy. He may be able to work a deal on a wrap if he gets some visibility in the city when you're cruising around. Just a couple of ideas.

A while back Erin blew the all wheel drive T-case up . So we were forced to put a real T-case in it. It was a 231 out of a blazer S-10

Luckily the new case was the same length as the old one and all the shaft hook ups were the same so we just used all the stock parts. A direct bolt in.

july 2012 026.JPG july 2012 027.JPG july 2012 030.JPG july 2012 031.JPG july 2012 032.JPG So we got it all together. Mike wnet to a wrecker and pulled a modual out of a dead s-10 ripped the harness apart. Changed some pins plugged everything back in and we had a push button 4wd t-case. I took it for a test drive and it drove great, Then I took it to our obstical course and blew the front diff up. Back to the wrecker for a diff . While we were at it we grabbed a set of heavier torsion bars. The ones we had were old and very twisted. $ low in a mini van at the push of a button is so cool. I can't wait for winter. Now if only bonedusts t-case swap took a night and a large case of beer.

Glad to see it worked for you. Wasn't sure if it would bolt up. Thanks GM

5 speed manual s10's had a cast iron front diff. Much stronger than stock and direct bolt in.

We have been building up s10s for about 6 years now. The iron diff is a common swap so we can run a lockright in the front or big tires (for us a big tire is a 34" tsl)
