Default 2001 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Lowered 6.0 Swap

We have decided to sell our 2001 Silverado. My wife bought this truck when she got her license and it has been her baby. It started life as a 4.3 V6 base model extended cab Silverado 2wd. I have recently done a lot of modifications to the truck so that it can be used to tow a race car trailer which it does very well. The trailer is probably close to 3000lbs and the truck we haul with it is around 3800lbs. I towed it to the track a couple times and to a show in NJ and I couldnt have been happier with the way it performed.

*THE TRUCK IS MARYLAND STATE INSPECTED AND PASSED MD EMISSIONS TESTING ON 6/19/2012*

The truck has about 150k on the body. I do not know the exact mileage on the engine. I purchased a gauge cluster out of a HD truck to get the trans temperature gauge, and that cluster shows 190k on it. Comes with the stock wheels and stock 1500 hood.

This truck has no rust under it, unlike a lot of these silverados.

I swapped in from a donor truck a 6.0 V8 and the heavy duty 4l80e transmission. The swap is complete and you wouldnt know it was done if you werent told. Looks completely stock. Runs great and has tons of power.

A/C is nice and cold.

The ECU was modified to eliminate the rear o2 sensors so it does not need cats, the EGR system, and a few other small things. The VIN was updated to match this truck, and it has since been through Maryland Emissions testing and passed with no issues. I just installed two magnaflow high flow 3 inch cats for MD inspection.

I just recently had to pull and rebuild the 4l80e transmission. It has the higher stall HD converter, and the trans is all fresh inside.

Lowered with a 5/7 kit, which uses different lower control arms up front, and a flip kit in the rear. The frame is notched in the rear for clearance and makes it a very comfortable ride.

2500 HD hood installed

Remote start system. My wife LOVES this for cold mornings!

Trailer Brake controller installed

Tow hitch from a suburban is installed. We used this instead of the silverado hitch because we could tuck it up under the truck more for a sleak look. It is welded in and rock solid.

Air bag leveling system installed in the rear. This kit included two air bags, lines and brackets. There is a valve under each side of the bumper to allow you to add air to either side. This made the truck able to haul pretty much anything. Once we have it loaded, we put air in the bags to level it out, making it still ride smooth and not rub or bottom out in the rear.

The truck has 20x10 wheels that I just recently refinished and painted the bright metallic silver. They have NEW 275 45 20 tires.

The front brakes (pads and rotors) are new.

Dual electric radiator fan

I just replaced the abs controller and abs motor.

All four ball joints, and both inner and outer tie rod ends are new and I did a full front end alignment for the inspection.

The battery is less than a year old and I replaced the starter shortly after the swap

I am sure I have forgotten some things. This is such a great truck and we will really be sad to see it go. But, we have bought a 2005 Escalade to replace it, something that will still pull a trailer, but has more room for the family inside.

Feel free to contact me with questions or requests for more pictures.

Asking price is $7500 OBO

Thanks!

No thanks man, have too many toys as it is, plus i've never been a fan of the jeeps. The market is flooded with them so not something i can turn into cash either.

It did. Only thing it needed was to be paint matched to the truck. The stock hood is still in good shape and comes with the truck as well.
