Seems like you take good car of your vehicle. :) I run my possessions hard and fast. I always replace if there is any question about it. I don't want to be hammering along and have something let go. :devilish:

no hubs or suspension stuff? nice. ya what the guy above me said, kudos for takin care of your rig obv always better to be proactive on these things (full size powertrain stuffed into a mid size chassis)
I will say that when I was DD'ing the SS, the only 'unplanned' maint item was a blend door actuator and hubs, iirc. outside of that very reliable for me from what I remember

My SS has never been raced or even driven hard. I bought from the original owner. The other car in his garage was a brand new Corvette. He was 76 years old. He told me he likes GM performance vehicles. I got lucky.

you got lucky on that previous owner!! NICE

uhhh rear hatch... uh minus the removal of the "TrailBlazer' OEM badge and replacing it with what does that say,, umm 6.0 LS2 I'm not seeing anything crazy. Minus the 07 and up rear wiper assy, which definitely looks better than the 06, nice swap

Only thing I see on the rear hatch looks like the weather stripping is coming out around the plate insert. Other than that super clean truck.

Wow...I am super fortunate. Haven't had to spend really on anything for that truck as far as REPAIRS go! I just recently needed a new Throttle Body Position Sensor, for which, I went ahead and purchased a new TB $240. I replaced the rear taillight circuit boards that were melting...$27 on Amazon. And the damn driver side fog light bulb that blows out so often you would think that's what it suppose to do.

Truck looks awesome 👌

The first owner took off the Trailblazer emblem and added the 6.0 LS2 emblem. Yes I forgot, the rear wiper arm was replaced.
