BUILT UP LS2, APPROX 480 HP, LOWERED SUSPENSION, A/C, FRESH PAINT, CLEAN TRUCK!
Trucks are still way cool, mostly because they're the most affordable way to get V8 muscle, rear-wheel-drive, and plenty of space to stretch out. And thanks to the wonders of GM's LS-series of engines, this 2002 GMC pickup is endowed with the heart of a Corvette, making for one entertaining hauler.
In bright yellow, you won't be able to keep a low profile in this truck, but the look suits it well. With the flared stepside bed and black SS stripes, nobody will mistake it for a phone company service vehicle, and if you're going to put more than 400 horsepower up front, you may as well attract attention with it. Looking the truck over, it's obviously been well-maintained throughout its life and hasn't been wrecked and rebuilt from there. Instead, someone loved this truck, washed and waxed it regularly, and when it was time for a freshening, it got what it needed to look its best. The hood stripes are crisply rendered, the body-colored grille surround separates this GMC from its more common Chevy cousins, and this was probably the last time GM made a stepside bed that looked better than a fleetside. The stripes extend onto the roof and tailgate, giving it a nicely finished look and while it has a few signs of use, you definitely won't be afraid to show this one at the local cruise night. The bed is protected by a spray-in bedliner and wrap-around rails and the bright chrome bumpers add just the right amount of jewelry.
Black cloth buckets are a great find in a sport truck like this, and they're supportive enough for spirited driving. A folding center armrest actually allows a third passenger, so it's even a little bit practical. Aside from a few bright yellow accents on the steering wheel and floor mats, it's quite stock, which means it's comfortable, quiet, and fully functional. It's loaded with features like power windows and locks, A/C, a tilt wheel, and cruise control, so driving this truck every day won't be any different than your usual daily driver. It's also got a great-sounding Sony AM/FM/CD stereo system that fills the cab with sound and a full set of gauges that are ideal for something with performance aspirations. Once again, it's clear that someone treated this truck like it was something special.
That something special comes from a Corvette-based LS2 aluminum V8 packing more than 400 horsepower. It's dressed with the standard Vortec truck accessories and intake system, but the added horsepower is evident from the moment you turn the key. The engine bay is a little grungy, but it could be detailed in a weekend to really pop and nobody will ever be the wiser that there's such substantial blasting powder under the hood. A raucous exhaust system with long-tube headers and a turn-down just behind the cab gives it a spectacular soundtrack and as a rule, these trucks ride and handle very well. It's also got 4-wheel disc brakes as standard equipment and the lightweight short cab/stepside bed combination feels agile (for a truck, anyway). Shiny chrome wheels are a great addition, and they're wrapped in recent blackwall radials that accentuate the lowered stance.
So this truck is a real head-turner, has tons of power, still has truck-like utility, and costs under $13 grand? Where do I sign up? Call today!
