Thread: New guy here!

  1. #1

    Cool New guy here!

    Hey guys. Just got a 92 Silverado 1500 4x4. It was my dads work pickup. He owned the local auto shop here in town. He just passed away this june and i bought the pickup from my step mom. Pickup is just shy of 200k with a pretty fresh GM crate engine and a rebuilt trans. Factory paint and interior. only mods to it are side toolboxs and a 2" cowl. Looking for some help/ideas for installing a driver side grab handle to help get into the truck. I'm a T-9 paraplegic so im hoping i can make getting in a bit easier. This is why i joined along with hopefully finding answers for other small issues.

    Welcome to the club...My first GMC had 245,000 miles when I sold it; it still ran strong and looked great. This is why I stayed with GMC (well that and style...and performance....and low maintenance....and..... and.....this list just goes on). Have fun with your new truck!
