New lower price!!!!!!!

Must sell, need cash to finish my K30 nicknamed C3. I'm building a thread on that truck right now. Look for it in the Chevy section.

Only $19,750! There's over $10,000 in suspension parts on this truck, labor not included.

I keep coming back and looking at this truck. I don't think the truck would pass yearly inspection here in TX without the emergency brake. Do you have a yearly inspection in NM? Any way to arrange things so you have a working emergency brake without throwing out the long travel shocks?

EDIT: Just noticed you said shocks could be retained with a forward shock mounting location. Any downside to this? Why did you decide not to mount them in the forward position?

E brake

I do not have a yearly inspection or even smog here, gotta say that is awesome. Mounting the shocks on the forward side of the axle makes the shock shafts susceptible to damage from rocks and sand flying off the front tires. That is why the Ford Raptor has those plastic shaft guards. Guards could be made, I have made them in the past and they work. But for what I was doing, putting them behind the axle was a better solution because it also moves more of the weight to the back of the truck for a little better weight distribution. I have all the hardware and cables to put it back. Not sure if your inspection is visual or actual function test? Shock mounts would have to be cut and flipped left for right and new upper shock mounts would need to fabricated as well. This would be about a days work and I could negotiate this work with a non-refundable deposit.

can you give us more info on the AIP bypass mod? I am trying to figure out if it will still pass CA smog, specifically the visual inspection.

AIP Bypass

I doubt they would see the bypass. I integrated the wiring with the factory harness running out of the fuse panel and mounted the relay on the firewall on the passenger side. It certainly doesn't cause any codes on the computer if they plug into the port and check that. Here is a link to the very long thread on Tundra Solutions that led to the creation of this mod:

http://www.tundrasolutions.com/forum...ation-circuit/

Here is a link to the pdf instructions that were generated on how to do this mod:
http://www.tundrasolutions.com/forum...erride-1.1.pdf

I can post a picture of the engine compartment if that helps.

Kills me I just bought a new vehicle. Seems like a great buy for the right person. Wish I could take it off your hands.
