I think so. So everything you need is just bolt on parts? Or is there some metal work needed? If it's just bolt on parts, I think you'll def be able to do it for under $2k.
Everything is bolt on accept a few spots that need buffed. I got a paint matched hood and buying paint matched bumpers.

The grill is all that will/should need painted.

Currently looking for halo head lights.

So yesterday I ordered the atomic fab coil over kit for the front and a pair of the Viking crusaders smooth body shocks for the rear of rust-eze. Still waiting on some of the other body parts from GM to fix it. Then off to the body shop.

Love those wheels. Two pics back looks like a bent rear control arm. I had one at the lower right rear when I bought my 05 Z71.

Man, I am really hunnnnnnnngry now that I saw that.

You are going to have to upgrade your account pic for the new wheels. By the way, I think you came out just fine on the insurance settlement. Plenty of money for more briskets.

She is bent. I’ll do the update while I wait on the stake to rest. Tonight’s dinner.

Slight update. Some of my order from Atomic showed up yesterday and I’m still waiting on the coil overs and rear shocks.

Also got most of the parts to fix rust eze. Still need to buy a grill shell, bumpers and driver side running board mount.

But it’s getting closer.
