Peter's 1991 GMC
Take a look at Peter Katsionis' extended-cab, long-bed GMC. Peter is from Vancouver, BC Canada. To create this awesome truck Peter has added many custom parts and pulled parts from Corvettes, Subrubans, and other late-model trucks.
The front was lowered 4-inches using lower control arms and coil springs. The control arms sit at just the right height so that it will pass any government inspection. The rear of the truck has been lowered 6-inches using an axle flip kit and air bags. Peter also added thicker front and rear sway bars with relocated rear shocks and polyurethane bushings. Peter says the suspension has been lowered for approximately 3 years without a single problem.
The wheel and tire combination consists of 1986 Corvette wheels with General tires 255/55r16 in the front and 275/55r16 in the rear. Putting on the wheels to this truck required the use of custom made billet adapters as the bolt pattern is different on the Corvette wheels compared to the truck wheels.
On the outside of the truck there are factory 4x4 flares painted to match the truck. Along with the bumpers being painted, the rear bumper was cutout for two Megs exhaust tips. The exhaust system was also given a Flowmaster muffler. The front spoiler is from a 1990 454 SS truck, which features driving lights. The mirrors are from a late-model Suburban, and were painted white to match the truck. A third brake light from a 1994 pickup was added above the cab. The front fascia was upgraded to look like a '97 GMC, and a billet grill was added. Covering the bed is a hard tonneau cover, which was painted white to match.
On the inside of the truck there is billet from the dash to the heater cover to the sill plates. The overhead console comes from a Suburban. The CD changer display is mounted in the console out of sight. There is also a Corvette steering wheel pirated from an '88 Corvette. Peter said it took a little work, but it fit. The engine is all stock except for a ram air system and K&N filter. In the future Peter will be adding a Tuned Port Injection and perhaps a Supercharger.
