I still have the box from when the lights were ordered. I will look at the company and post the info for you. Maybe you can contact them for more.

Looking good with the Impala SS rims and the old-style clear corners! I wish I could still find those. I have a set for a Chevy grille but not the GMC. All the ones out now are completely "see-through" clear and I hate em!

I probably could have worded that better. I have a set just like yours - mine are for the Chevy grille. Exact same set. Unfortunately they don't fit a GMC grille and everywhere I've checked only carries the totally clear "see through" ones that I hate. No more clear plastic OEM style (with the reflector-ish texture in them.)

So many of those lenses have either fallen "out of style" like the OEM type clear corners, or have been deemed illegal like the OEM type clear tails like the ones on my '92.

Thanks for the welcome

It's nothing much, but I'm 16 and it's my first car. It's a hand-me-down from my dad (he ended up getting a Ford Explorer, lol) but I really like it, it's my baby and I take care of 'er. It has 112k miles on it, and a really nice sound system. To see more pics, you can go to my homepage.

Hey dude,
Are those wheels from the old style Impala or from the current Impala? I tried to fit the Impala LS wheels onto my truck (My mom got new wheels for her car), and although they are also 5 lug, the bolt spacing is too wide for the LS wheels.

The ones you need come off the 94-96 B-body Impala SS. The bolt pattern is 5 lug, 5" bolt circle. They work fine on these trucks unless your truck is lowered as much as mine. In that case you have to run a VERY small front tire to avoid fender rubbing. That's why I took them off and went for some Boyds that I ordered up with a better backspacing. In fact here's an old pic of my truck before the Caddy clip, when I still had the Impala wheels on: Impala wheels

In my best robot voice, I WANT IMPALA WHEELS

I've been trying to decide what wheels I want on my truck. I want to get rid of the aluminum uglies on it now and thought about stock ralleys, but i've seen too many trucks with those with a slight drop. So my truck would look the same. But then you guys refresh my memory with the Impala wheels and now it's on.

Do you need wheel spacers with Impala wheels, or will they fit properly if I just bolted em on like the stockers?

Dangit i'm going to get them, they are a bit expensive though. That's why you don't see many just put on anything.

You like my dog Boog? Looks like he can almost understand what you're saying huh?

Thanks for the compliments John and Steve. If you get up close to my old truck, you'll see a cracked windshield and some peeling paint. But Im happy with her!

Kinda off track here but does pertain to showing off our trucks... Maccer - We'll be down in your neck of the woods (I think) middle to end of February next year for a mega car show. Somewhere off I-10 east of Baton Rouge. Sposed to be some monster convention center along there and that's where it's going to be. I can't rememeber the name of the place or the city but I"ll keep you posted if you are interested.

Baton Rouge is about 4.5 hours away Mike. I live in the upper northwest corner of the state. You can throw a rock into Texas from where I live if you can throw a rock about 15 miles. But let me know when/where the show is. I travel those parts on occasion!!

Of course, but usually nothing hard core. When all your buddies have lifted trucks its hard to stay with them on their off-roading adventures. I hate being the only stocker, but I don't have the couple thousand needed to get mine in the air.

Here is my truck. I've had it for five years and replaced the engine, transmission and lots of other things. Just put a 3 inch body lift on it and in a few days will install a cam and Performer intake.

Here is the my 1998 Turbo Diesel Z71, I got it about a month ago and I love it! It looks kinda plane now but I will have to fix that with a 4 or 6 inch superlift and some larger tires. So far all I have done to it is a K&N filter and ripped off those goofy looking running boards.

My 1994 GMC Sierra 3500 Dually can be seen on my web site, so I'll just post one pic of it here and links to the two pages on my site.


One of my other Hobbies is Railfanning, My License Plates read SD45T-2, which is a GM EMD locomotive model that was only sold to one railroad, The Southern Pacific. so my License Plates tell you my favorite railroad. any way the loco in the pic is a SD40T-2, so it's a bit smaller with only a 16 cylinder engine instead of a 20.

Anyway pics of my truck out Railfaaning are here, Jolly's RailFan Ride & the regular photos of it are here, 1994 GMC Sierra 3500 Dually.

Enjoy eh.

yeah i'd be happy to give it a shot, just email the pic to FunnymanAl@aol.com and i'll see what i can do. i ended up getting really lucky in that picture because i had a pic of my truck taken at the same angle as the original so it worked out better than i expected. i have a side view of the same truck so if you don't have one at that angle just send me one from the side.
