    I recently received a 1991 GMC 2500 and i was looking around for some accessories and didnt find much I was wondering of anyone else has a truck that they have modified around this year or same year and what they have done to it.

    Thanks.:)

    absolutely anything... I just want to see any trucks or modifications people have done to truck anywhere between 1990 and 95. Just to have some ideas for my truck.

    Hey ChevyBoy119, I own a K2500 and all I have really done with it was get all the routine maintenance done and replace all the worn parts like ball joints, tie rod ends, wheel bearings, axle seals, and so forth. The most expensive thing was getting some good all terrain load range E tires for it (BFGoodrich AT KO2), made it look tuff.

    My father in law owns a dairy farm. What part of Wisconsin are you in?

    Welcome and Howdy from Texas you could also bring up some videos on YouTube but like Kb above wrote down I would do all the regular maintenance first like replacing all your water hoses and stat and serpentine belt maybe a tune up and so on check your spare tire it might be flat or just worn out hey I bought a all aluminum radiator including tanks on eBay for less than $200.00 bucks including shipping oh it's much bigger than what my stock one was last thing many people forget to do is check to see if your Trans fluid is good and red if not service it after these things you could travel the world just get on that around the world beltway and your set. :rofl: :road::htruck:

    I put a flatbed on my current truck. The truck came with a rusted and cracked long bed so I replaced it with a flatbed that I bought for 180. Then I added the 2x4s to make a stake bed.

    I had tightened the torsion bars on my last truck to give it a leveled look. I also put 285/75/r16 tires on it and that made a big difference. It looked really nice with those larger mud terrain tires. Gas mileage could have been a bit better ha ha.

    Kbrown when I had a 1989 Mazda ext/cab I leveled it like you did and I had a frontend alignment done but for some reason it still wore out the tires now it looked MEGA better but I had that problem bad service I say I finally traded it in because in 11 months I put 30k miles my mom was very ill and I said I can buy another truck but not my mom.
