    Pump tunnel

    I have read that the 2000GPR had less of and issue with the pump tunnel cracking than the following years. How true is this??

    I thought the 03's were the worst years, then again it should be a first mod for any year.

    Nope, 03-08 were the worst years. The only difference in 03 was the single pump shoe brackets that were recalled for the single brackets. Pump tunnels are the same.

    my 2000 had inserts pull thru.

    Reinforcing the tunnel is a must do bullet proof modification

    The tunnel reinforcement was a little mess but pretty easy to do. I thought better safe than sorry and did the tunnel reinforcement like everybody recommended.
