Starting this out at $28,500 OBO
7/5/20 Lowered to $27,900

2008 Silverado LT HD2500 Crew Cab Long Bed 4x4 (2014 front end conversion)

Truck was completely restored and upgraded meticulously inside and out (Finished July 2017).
All upgrades were done to keep the truck usable, ultra-reliable, and long lasting. It has minimal lift/leveling only with usable tires & wheels that can go off road if needed, etc. It is quick, pulls hard, gets good MPG, and you can still get in and out of it, get in the bed, tow without a ridiculous hitch etc.
I have only put 7,853 miles on the truck my entire ownership since April 2016. Only a few thousand since all the work was done.
The truck runs and shifts perfect! Everything works as it should, no compromises! Even the TPMS computer and ECM were re-programmed for tire size and pressures. MPH on the speedometer is dead on!
Clean title in hand.
No leaks. No stuff to fix. No oil usage between changes, etc.
No soot being blown back into the engine with the EGR, PCV, etc. Engine will last forever, gets better MPG, and makes much more power. Sounds great!
All of the factory shortcomings upgraded. This truck will last you forever as long you take care of it as needed.

Below there is a condensed list of the upgrades and parts, but to see everything done to this truck, please take some time and read through the complete 14 page build log with pictures etc.
LMM BUILD - Restoration & Upgrading 2008 LT CCLB 4X4

Here is also a spreadsheet with all of the parts used during the build including prices, part numbers, where purchased etc. I spent over $17,500 NOT including the labor that would have eclipsed this by far. This includes mileage and dates every part was installed or maintenance was done. Many parts are not listed on this add below because every single clip, screw, etc. that needed to be replaced, or was missing etc. was done and the add would get too big.

Here is a summary of the upgrades and things done:

Edge Products Insight CTS2 Monitor with dash pod
Exhaust gas temperature sensor installed for Edge CTS2
Edge sensor and input installed to display low pressure fuel readings (before lift pump)
CCD Backup Camera with lighting installed to display on Edge Insight
EFI Live with on the fly 5 position tune switching: (Optimized stock, Smoke, Tow Tune with Turbo braking, +100 HP, +175HP). You could turn this up more, but I kept it conservative to ensure long life. I almost always run Optimized Stock unless towing something. This truck can get 24 MPG if you drive it easy with no load and stay at or under the speed limit.
This sale will include the complete EFI live setup and diagnostic tool which does still have a paid for tune you can use for another vehicle.
