After messing with the original S10 I bought for about a year, I decided I want to bag and body it… Sadly, the truck I bought was a 4×4 which means the front has axles in it and I can’t put airbags there. This past summer I decided to sell it and buy a 2 wheel drive S10.
It took me several months to find the one I liked. Except it wasn’t an S10 but a GMC Sonoma, a 1993. It is perfect. All power, even got a digital dash and a Vortec engine. I have some 20″ wheels left from the old truck that I didn’t even have a chance to put on. Unfortunately they are 30+ offset and need spacers.
I purchased some 1.25″ spacers from Amazon and found out that their inner hubcentric lip was hitting the front hubs, so I couldn’t get them all the way back to the rotors. I ended up returning them and ordering 2″ ones. They have not arrived yet so I am holding my breath for them to fit over the hubs. Will let you know how that goes.
For now enjoy some photos of the new truck.
And here is a rendering what it may look like in the near future if I don’t decide to dire right into bagging it. I thought I would lower it and paint it for starters and enjoy it like that for a bit while I gather the funds and parts for the bagging project.
Valik has been a fan of Chevy S10 Pickups since his high school years back in 1996. He has all kinds of plans and dreams for it but being a teenager with no money it was hard to customize the truck. Life continued, and now in his “mid-life crisis years” it is time to realize this dream. Valik started the process on getting an S10 and customizing it to what he always wanted. In the mean time,
as he looks for the perfect donor as his donor truck waits for the summer to start work on it, he spends his available time looking at other people’s S10’s and making plans and doing research. All the inspiration he finds, he posts on his instagram @s10spotter, facebook @s10spotter and this website s10spotter.com.
