UA 2500 ORD Parts List
We are often asked "What parts should I use to build my truck?"
What better way to answer this question than to show a parts list on our personal rigs!
This is the run down for our shop truck named "UA 2500"
It is a 1999 Sierra 2500, 6" Lift, 40" tires, 4.88 gears, Vortec 454, NV4500, Magnum-Ford NP205, 1978-79 Ford Dana 60 front with ARB locker front, 14 Bolt Full Float with ARB locker rear.
Our 1999 UA 2500 is a extremely reliable work horse that has been on many Ultimate Adventure trip. One of the more recent trips was in Alaska. The truck made the round trip from Colorado to wheeling in Alaska with no problems at all.
The suspension has been upgraded with our Solid axle swap and Custom front and rear (64") springs. We kept the stock tension style shackle and added a longer 6" Super shackle to take advantage of some free droop travel. To get traction to the ground without sacrificing any flex we added one of our two link traction bar kits.

For some of the custom details, the frame was shortened and a trail bed was built to help with tighter obstacles. For safety and to add more rigidity a cage was added along with some sliders. Overall this truck can handle a lot of abuse and still keep kicking.
