Last night friend of mine and me were cruising in my car, then I saw another friend in a 2001 Chevy 400SS truck (not driving him), roll down the window and asked me if I wanted to race them, i'm thinking "i'm goona lose" :rolleyes: but anyway I said yes.
We get a Red light and both were reving as the light changed we took off, dead even trhu firts gear (too much wheel spin of booth), red line comes, shift to second, I gain a little and red lined too, when I shifted to third started to get in front of him.
Killed him by about 1 car lenght, I felt so good! :D.
The truck looks like this but with the 400SS stickers on the back and was all whited out, lowered, 20" rims :eek: and awesome sound system :p .

There is no 400ss truck....there was a 454ss made in the early 90's wich in no way can be confused with a new (99-02) style truck. The truck you raced was a normal scsb (single cab, short wheel base) v6/v8 silverado. Good race though. That truck sounds like it's pretty nice (with the exception of those rice stickers).

There is a Chevy 400SS. They've been selling them in Mexico for years and there are a few in the US. A lot of people order a c2500 with the 400 and hop it up and throw on 400SS emblems that you can buy from GM dealers. Here's a pic of a '98:



Chevy is also making a Silverado SS. Here are the specs:

Mr.Tom,

With the picture you provided in the first post (99+ bodystyle) It looks nothing like the white (88-98) "400ss" that some one else posted. If you saw a 99+ with the 400ss sticker it is in fact a fake/ricer. 99+ trucks dont have the 5.7 no more. The new line up is v6 to v8...4.3, 4.8, 5.3, 6.0, 8.1.....Keep in mind these are just the FULLSIZE truck motors availible.....That is neat though, I have never heard of a 400ss before....I apologize for making the wrong assumption.
Good Day

p.s.
slap a blower on the new awd ss and beat lightings all day....I can't wait for that sucker to come out.

-Mike
