PENDING / $31,900

Description

Here at DAS, we love restoring and bringing to market older 4x4 trucks with a modern twist all while keeping the original format of the truck. We feel by staying true to the original design but adding some modern lighting, comfort, suspension, we are creating the best of both worlds. When we got this 1996 Silverado Z71 4x4 in, we knew it was the perfect truck for us to add our DAS touch!!!! We just finished a 1996 White Silverado last year with nearly 250,000 views on youtube and have been asked 100s of times to create another one, so here you go!!!!

This truck was the PERFECT truck to really bring back to life bc the previous owner took amazing care of this truck. We will outline below the full restore build on this like new Silverado. We truly are aiming to create a very clean, classy, timeless, reliable and truly capable 1500 Silverado. This Silverado had only 160k on the clock but as you see outlined below, everything is new!!!!

DAS PAINT AND BODY:
- NEW COMPLETE REPAINT
- NEW LOWER DOOR PANELS

We stripped down this Silverado to metal and started from step one with 2K primer, base coat, and 2 coats of clear coat. Although the body is in great condition we will still perform body work which includes welding in all new lower door panels and corner cabs for years of rust free worry. We also removed all and any dents and dings. After the primer was applied, it got blocked down for a completely flat layer/surface for a perfect base coat finish. We also remove the doors and entire bed when we paint it for a complete professional repaint to reach around the cab and door jams. All handles, locks, trim, panels are removed so there are no tape lines. This is a very time consuming method but the end result speaks for itself. We also painted all the door handles, mirror housings, belt moldings, and more. In addition to the ENTIRE exterior being painted, we spent 4 day wet sanding and buffing the new paint for a perfectly flat top clear coat layer and mirror finish.

FRAME:

Part of our restoration process includes a 4-5 Day Service on the frame itself. As seen in the photos, we remove the bed for this and paint purpose. While the bed is off, we media blast the frame for a perfectly clean frame and then apply a rust prevention 2 part spray for years and years of worry free rust build up. This finished also gives the undercarriage a like new appearance. We take a lot of pride in our undercarriage appearance and this truck surely shows that.

The above Specs, Parts, and Services don't tell the entire story. We have installed numerous other parts along with many other services to make this a complete turn key truck. We used as many AC Delco and GM parts for everything we replaced that we could. When clients fly in to check on their vehicles we are restoring or a potential customer comes to check out a vehicle in out 40k sqft shop they are always drawn to this gorgeous truck and show a lot of appreciation for it.

The exterior simply speaks for itself. A true full restore including all new paint, bumpers, trim, grill, lights etc. There is not one single exterior part that wasnt replaced. The paint and body work alone counted for over 300 man hours between prep, body work, new metal, paint and buffing. We went with a very classy BFG 285/75/16 All Terrain K02 Tire on mounted on Brand new OEM Wheels, yes brand new OEM wheels. These trucks come racked/raised on the back so we installed a front leveling 2" kit which gives us the room to install the slightly larger than factory tires. In addition to the leveling kit, we installed brand new Z71 correct Bilstein Shocks along with other suspension and steering parts. Down of the chrome fender trims, every single item is brane new. All emblems, bezels, etc are all OEM GM parts.

The interior is all new besides the dash. Please make sure to view the entire video and specs above.

The best part of this truck is the drivability. This truck drives absolutely flawless from engine, to transmission, to braking. The all new suspension system gives it a very smooth road experience paired with the brand new tires. You simply won't find another GM 94-98 pick up like this.
