I have the frontrange crossmember and it vibrates so bad I hate it.  It does not allow the drivetrain to move at all.  I think I can feel each cylinder firing :(  I would recommend building one from scratch using factory mounts.  hope this helps......

well i was tired of the vibes and decided today was the day im gonna cut my tranny tunnel out... i used caulking rivets and sheetmetal screws to make a new one since i dont have a welder...

here are the few pictures i took






and my truck does fit in my little tiny garage im so happy!!!




took it for a test drive zero vibes... im happy with it might not be pretty but it will work... i caulked around all the edges before i used screws to set it in place should be pretty good...

thursday i am going down to dans(wakkjobs) and welding on my sliders... and making a rear shock mount... so we will see how that goes...

on a side note i think my starter is donezo so im gonna order a new one here tonight i think

Let them know how many trucks you've owned... Might put this into perspective for them.

You're coming down to do what when and how?  :hahaha:
Yeah, that tunnel needs some serious lovin'... I'm almost done with my frame so the welder should be free by Thursday. I won't stay up too late Wednesday night either even though it's karaoke at the bar. Remember to bring the shocks and Chevy spring mounts too or else you're wheeling solo again this weekend!

i guess we all learn something new every once in awhile... apparently GM motors require shimming in their starters... which sucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

so i got my new started attempted to mess with the shims and destoryed the gears on the new starter go think i have AA lifetime warranty on this pos.

anyways i also shered a bolt off in the block yea for me!!!! but i think its gonna be an easy fix considering the bot is coming out the other end...

i came across this for setting up a GM block starter with shims

pretty interesting i think my starter needs to be closer to the fly wheel when i ran it with zero shims it started but sounded bad... when i put the 6 shims that was originally in it it blew up lol

the interesting thing is if you shim just the outter side it will get it closer to fly wheel i am going to attempt this tomorrow

wish me luck

It still baffles me as to HOW THE F you broke that bolt...  :yikes:

If the bolt piece came out easily the threads in the block should be fine. If not I'll send my tap&die set up Thursday with Suz. Just remember: You break it, you pay for it!

I have never had to shim any GM starters; it may be because you have that Toyota tranny behind the GM engine though...  :headscratch:

Let me know if you need anything, I'll be around.
