I keep telling my bro-in-law to "just LS" his RRC every time he has an issue with it. I am sure LS Defenders are great to drive but I would wager an LWB LS would be even better. Please keep us in the loop on that (actually the 2A as well) project!

Just a heads up:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/191884765669

Cheap for now, but hey, in for a penny, in for a pound......... Ahhh, screw it. If you're going LS, Go BIG or go home, right?

Now LSA big is like John Holmes getting enlargement surgery, but who wouldn't do it if they could :-) Jwillia is going to travel back in time when he gets that monster built! Can't wait ;-)

That one has def got my attention, but there are other possibilities that are closer to me with fewer miles.

Anyone know what connector the blue connector is? It's next to fuse block x2 on wiring harness but I can't seem to find it on gmupfitter.

Also, did the Gen Iv with 6l80 use a TAC box, or do I connect my pedal directly to the harness?

Thanks.

Cab/bulkhead connector. Pedal gets wired in directly to it. No Box for the pedal. Send me an email and I will forward you a schematic.

I bought an LC9 & 6L80e from a wrecked 2010 Silverado 1500 with 41.5k on the odometer. Paid $3k. Comes with exhaust manifolds, air cleaner, wiring loom & 'brain'. Think I did pretty good?



I'm committed now!

ok, another stupid question, but how does the Lokar Pedal assembly (DBW-GM01) attach to the Pedal adapter? Not sure if i'm missing something, but i'm not getting it... i've got one long forward facing bolt on the adapter, and no obvious mounting holes to actually attach the assembly. Do I need to drill my own holes?

There are two versions of the pedal that I've encountered. Nick's adapter bracket is configured for the earlier style that has a cast aluminum body and two diagonal through holes for bolts/studs. The new version is machined billet aluminum and has two 3/8" (if I remember correctly) captured nuts in the body.

The new one works fine, it's just a function of how easy you want the install to be. Summit sent me a new style, but the one provided with the 6.2 from Turnkey was the older version.

When I ran the new version I just made a simple template off the back of it to locate and mark the two holes that needed to be drilled, then just bolted it in place from the outside. It's a two-man job but really straight forward and the splined pedal can be clocked to the appropriate position without issue.

That sucks. Were you able to fit the new version?

just called and talked to the Lokar guy. Apparently the new version has better throttle response etc. Summit didn't have any old versions and Lokar have already stopped making them. Drilling 2 new holes won't be hard... but I just wish i didn't have to! lol... oh well!

New version works and almost lined up with my existing peddle holes, just use the top hole and elongate the bottom (less then half a bolt hole) is a bitch to fit on your own though took me nearly an hour my only complaint with it is I don't think you can fit it as high up the footwell as would possibly be perfect?

The one I installed went in the very upper right corner of the vertical footwell panel. I thought the pedal was in just the right spot. I dug through my phone but can't find any photos unfortunately, but for reference here's one of the old style pedal on Nick's adapter.

Yea, I still went ahead and used Nicks adapter plate, but just marked and drilled through both the plate and footwell for extra support. It works nicely.

Any updates on the adapters?

I'm currently running a '96 110 axle in front, and a '96 Discovery 1 axle in the rear. Do I need to upgrade the rear axle (or both) to handle the extra torque? Would MOD axles be better able to take the strain?
