    I still have the 3/4 ton eye sore sitting here, and the longer it is here the longer the Willy's has to wait. So heres what is good or desent:

    Front bumper
    Gas tank w/skid plate**(skid plate sold, thanks mudhog-Shannon)**
    rear doors
    seats
    headliner(Double T spoke about it, but that was months ago)
    fan shroud
    tube grill
    frame
    stock springs
    glass
    rear drivelines( 2 piece)
    tub if you come and get it( some rust in front floor but workable)

    don't bother asking about:
    engine
    tranny
    t-case
    front and rear
    brake set up
    steering column

    Also have
    1/2 ton front springs
    1/2 ton 10 bolt housings front(no yoke or shafts)
    1/2 ton 10 bolt rear( has stripped spider gears,new from the backing plates out.)
    77 blazer top
    auto column

    If you don't get any takers on the drivelines and on the tank(if it's 31gallon?) let me know and I'll try to scrape up some money for them. I can't commit to more than that yet I need to find out what kind of storage I have.

    front driveline is for the Willy's, rear driveline is a two piece and the tank is only the 25 gallon.

    how do the springs look on that thing? my C20 is sagging something horrible (2-4 cracked leaves per rear pack) and I'm trying to decide how best to go about replacing them. about the only problem I can think of is the shipping charge to get them from up north to AZ 85257 would kill any real deal.... unless I manage to win the damn lottery tomorrow, in which case I'll drive up there, throw phat loots at you, and take the whole thing off your hands.

    I'll take a look at them today but I believe they are in great shape, nothing cracked on them. I hope you win the lottory too!,LOL but I don't need phat loot for it. I'll take any offer. I'm just pulling the good stuff and then hauling it to the scrapyard and gfet my $10 for it cus no "auto recycler" wants it. [​IMG]

    I'll check the shipping on those springs, but like you said shipping kills the deal, how much you think those weigh? I know the 3 leaf fronts are 45#'s

    having lifted a `heavy half' rear spring pack before, I'd wager them to be about 80# or so.... could be more, since its a full 3/4 ton pack, and made for something ancient...

    don't worry too much about it. I hope your dad gets better soon. the springs prolly weigh too much to make it feasable for me to not just get new ones made localy...

    I tried to win the powerball lottery, but unfortunately, only came up winning 8 dollars... oh well, hopefully I'll be able to get some phat loots with little/no effort soon.

    once again, I hope your dad's allright, and I'll talk to you later.

    Do you still have the 78 burb? If so what condition is the frame in? I assume this was a 3/4 ton 4x4 frame. I might be interested in the frame and what ever is attached to it for dirt cheap. Let me know.

    Thanks,
    Mike.

    I just got the PM and replied..I should of read this first. I still have the frame with the springs. and the body is still on, but I'll just yank that off if you don't want it. only parts missing are the running gear( motor, tranny, case, axles...it is sitting on a set of busted 10 bolts to be able to roll it.
