Can't wait to do mine. I've only had the parts laying around 5-6 yrs lol.
Haha, let this be the motivation for you to knock it out!!


This morning when I went to start my truck I swear I heard a weird noise, then looking under the hood I saw steam or smoke coming out of the fans, they weren't on yet but I unplugged them and it was still coming out, probably morning dew cooking off the new radiator I am not sure but it went away after a couple minutes, that wasn't fun but seems to be all good now, coolant level fine too.

So the replacement part I bought on ebay for the hatch handle is an exact replacement, thankfully.
It is from an envoy/trailblazer from what I can tell by the listing.
Glass is in I am happy.

Truck has come along nicely! You’ve done a ton of work too! Really impressive! You won’t be disappointed in the Michelin defenders! I’ve had them on just a little over a year now and they’re fantastic!

Rear hatch glass looks good too! The 05/06 style just looks better in my opinion! Glad you were able to get the sort to fix the handle!

Replaced intake filter, cleaned the MAF (still original MAF may order a new delphi one this year)

Ordered a $25 Dorman door seal and used it on the back hatch glass.
The glass wasn't sitting firm enough, I could hear wind when driving and rattle when shutting.. now it is very firmly seated when shut.

Found a new spot to mount one of my big 3 grounds from my accessory bracket to the frame just need to get a nut and bolt.

Got a spare ecm off ebay for $60 sent it to get my fan settings fixed.

Every detail counts and each project checking off the list feels great to be done, very enjoyable to drive lately.
