Hi all,
Im new here. This is also my first post. I recently bought this 1995 Sierra. Its fully loaded. It has a bell Tech drop. 4/6. Billet specialty 17 inch wheels. I bought this truck from a gentleman that said this was his baby. Kept it garaged and has 126k original miles. Truck runs great. No smoke either. Since buying it i cleaned her up. Color sanded her and polished her. Added all new a/c pump condenser and lines. New exhaust system because the stock one was leaking and made the truck sound old. I also bought a bigger opening for the TBI since GM liked choking them. Runs so much better with this bowl on. Thats my goal. Making it more fuel friendly and efficient. I trully love this truck and to just let you know this is my 3rd. My first 2 were a GMC and a sierra with a 6 cylinder. Ohh i love the v8 so much better. Over the years when i would see one i just knew i had to have one in my life again. So this year the apportunity came and i bought her. Its currently driven once in a while. I have a current project 69 Camaro that im about almost done so when i do i plan on headers intake roller rockers and removing the noisy fan up front and adding electrict fans so yes i have lots of questions so i hope to make Friends...;-)

Had a Dr. appt this morning at 8 AM. right in the rush hours. so I got up at 5:30 and drove to the VA in mission Valley, needed a new TENS Unit.Sweet I got there in 15 min (no one on the road).



It would have taken an hour if I left later. So I set up cranked the stereo, got some coffee, watched the Today Show on NBC. About 25 people came by to check out whats going on, The look on there faces was better then words.

I have been asked about my power/ charging system that allows me to do what I did in the last pic....

Take out the stock 46 amp alt and install a 110 amp. I needed this to recharge the cranker up ft and 3 RV batts in the rear. My system gave me power for 4 days & nights at the WILD in the WOODS Van run here in SD, running the frig, stereo, lights, coffee pot microwave, a 19" Visio TV (didnt run long not many stations). It surpassed all my expectations. 4 days & 3 nights.



I ran some interior lights on the ft batt but not much. Didnt want to kill the batt that starts the van to go home.

Interstate SRM-29, group 29 are about 6" longer than the normal

[url]http://www.interstatebatteries.com/cs_estore/content/pro duct_info/marine_f.asp[/url]

Pop out rear windows & Limo roof for ventilation



That orange plug is for my shore power





3" Foam insulated the underside of bed
On the left is a dedicated service fan for when I recharge
Keep the inverter as close to the batt bank as possible, Im 16" from the closest batt post to the inverter inputs.



The digital Isolator switch

[url]http://www.bluesea.com/products/7610/SI-Seri es%20Automatic%20Charging %20Relay/featured[/url]



All 4 awg wire with inline fuses to every thing.
A black 4 ag from the frame near the batt pak and 4 ag from the alt to the relay with 80 amp inline fuses, 20 amp inline fuses to EVERYTHING else.



Here is the inverter that is laying on its side in front of the fan in the last pic

[url]http://royalpower.com/pic3000.html[/url]





I cut a opening in the bed under the mattress for service of the batteries...

Way too cool. I think I said it before, but you know how to party.

I'd be nervous as hell sleeping on top of that pile of wet batteries - would feel much better if they were Optimas or similar! But I have personally witnessed car batteries explode so it has biased me a bit.

If I didnt have the fans under the bed pedestal for ventilation Id be nervous tooo...

During the recharge of batteries they make hydrogen sulfide, if the concentration of gas gets up there yes they do explode.

Im not even close to the concentration of gases for that to happen.

Hey, I'm new here. Lots of great trucks posted, and the information is good too. Recently upgraded from a 2001 Blazer ZR2 to a 1995 Suburban 2500 4x4 454. It's well broken in, but it's originally from California, so it's still in great shape. First order of business has been to get it 100% mechanically, and also prepping it for winter. I'm treating any minor areas of rust, and then undercoating with bedliner. Probably won't get much further than the wheel wells before winter, but I'll continue in the spring. I absolutely love this thing. It's a '95, so it's exempt from emissions here, it's got all the heavy-duty stuff I want, still fairly basic though with the TBI and manual 4x4. I really couldn't ask for anything more. Hopefully it outlives me.

Hey Frscke, I didn't see any pictures of it, could you please post one of the 4x4 actuator on the van? I'm trying to picture it, or where it must be...behind the hump, right? This has seriously got to be just about the coolest thing ever, a 4x4 454 G30. I love both of your vans, any big block van gets my attention, but a 454 4x4? Just fantastic. If the sportiness (ha ha) of the Suburban ever fades for me and I need just pure space, I'll be looking for a G30 4x4 454 as well. :D

Edit: BTW, the vent visors look great, I like the metal look. The plastic ones look crappy. I think I'm going to need something like these for the Suburban.

I tell you I enjoy seeing pictures of this van I spend a large some of growing up in a 79 same color - it threw four rods in its life never put one through the block my mothers mechanic said he wasn't rebuilding the motor a fourth time. Never thought of that beast as performance but I know it never let us down. Good to see all the potential being used by someone.

Just brought this home a few weeks ago. 94 C3500 with 6.5 Turbo Diesel. MT8 transmission. It was parked for five years or so and am I still in the finding and fixing problems stage but have started to daily drive it. The PMD looks brand new but is still mounted on the pump so in the very near future I will be getting a relocation kit to move it.

Inside was filthy so spent a day steam cleaning. Need to get an after pic.

My 95 C1500 standard cab/short box/4.3/5 speed.

The best purchase I have ever made. I paid 14k for it, brand new 20 years ago. 390,000 all original miles.

It's been parked for about a year. Rebuilt heads and new distributor and it is now running again. I just have a few thing to iron out under the hood and I will be driving daily again.

Catching up a bit on this post...

  • Flat Toy Said:

Love the crew cab! The NV4500 is a tough transmission, just beware if it's already grinding the 2-3 shift then get that tended to immediately before you need a full rebuild. Also be sure to use only the recommended fluid, GM Synthetic Transmission Lube (which is relabeled Castrol Syntorq) - available from the dealer for about $20/quart, trans holds 4. 1994 is my favorite year (best and last year of the old interior) and black with gray cloth is the best! (My 1994 C2500LD is the same scheme)

  • Bowtietim Said:

Not many people still own the 88-98 that they bought new! Those Tahoe Limited wheels look great on it and 390K miles is something to be proud of.

  • BlackWidow007 Said:

Very nice. 22" or 24" Irocs? (or are they mixed front/rear?) Got more pics? My '94 is still static and probably will always be; I love the look of slammed bagged trucks but don't think I can commit to the work to do mine and hate the idea of trusting anyone else to do it.
