    Backup camera display mounting options for early Gen2

    Yes GMC 1 ton are nice upgrade for little money. If you ever need rotors go to third generation rotors and pads, nearly 50 to 75% increase in barke surface, it take two new calapiror brackets, one each side, same calipters work.

    Rear brake upgrade ‘02 2nd gen to 3rd gen

    my third generation brakes with ECB yellow pads save me from a freeway a wreck just after the upgrade. A dumb a** cut in front me so close I had to jam the brakes to avoid hitting at 70 mph. The new brakes grab so hard that the shoulder harness lock engages when the truck threw me forward. It is a cheap upgrade especial if you already doing rotors. just 2 new caliper mounting brackets.

    Wish list for new truck

    what a swing out tool box? Found some over the fender unit that mount in the bed and swing our, is that what your speaking about. Me I like a rear mount tailgate with a tire rack that swing out or down out of the way to access the bed.
