    doooooo eeeeetttt!!! :eek1:
    the lifting arm is probably one of those hand crank, flat deck mounted mini hiab lift things....
    i would say a d60 and dually 14 bolt....

    Well, the rear will be some kind of dually 14BFF ... could be narrow so-called cab-and-chassis one, if the truck didn't come with a bed, could be the wider dually bed style. Neither will drop into a K5, even if you change the spring perches and/or shock mounts. (The C&C is crazy narrow, the regular dually a bit wide.)

    if it's 4x4 -- not likely -- it'll have a dually (DRW) D60. You'd need to swap hubs or use H1 wheels (crazy backspacing) to get it to fit under a Blazer easily.

    In short, sorry Stave, but don't get your hopes up :(

    So the rear axle is a no go?
    If it doesn't have a d60 I will forget it...I hope they came out in '77 and not '78

    If it is a 4x4 and not a C&C then both axles are good. If it is a wide 14FF you can put the SRW hubs on the axle and it will widen it another 3-4 inches and will be almost the exact same width as a DRW dana 60. Then all you have to do is run stock H1 rims with the stock backspacing. Several guys have done that on here. I think Poohbear is one of them but I think his is a dana 70 same principle though.

    if it is a 4x4, you can use the axles as they are like said before with H1 wheels and it will be fine. one thing is 77 is the first year of the D60.... SOO if its an early build truck then it may havea D44....

    6000 lb "lifting arm" sounds interesting!...

    I bet the 6000 lb "Lifting Arm" is worth 500 by itself,if its got a winch or hydraulic cylinder on it!~..three tons is a lot,it cant be one of those cheap harbour frieght china hoists--might just be an"arm" with a 3 ton chain falls on it!...

    I dont know about the axles,only way to be sure is to look at them...about any motor from a 292 six to a 454 could be in a C30 truck...but if it did have a Dana 60 and a 454,I doubt it would be for sale so cheap,especially with that "arm" included in the deal--you never know though!.. :crazy:

    I guess I could give them a call tomorrow and find out if its 4x4 and check what engine is it. I guess comparing a d44 and d60 is easy, the 60 will be much larger? I will search a bit..
    Thanks

    p..s what transfercase would it have, a 205?

    Steve, do yourself a favor and pass on it no matter what it is. if you do buy it, you're going to fall into the same trap as i did. building a truck that's too big for your driving ability. that can get your hurt or killed in a hurry.

    beater,
    I was more along the lines of wanting it for a tow rig, I want a trailer, and we are selling the furd tow rig soon. just thought I'd call, 750 is good even if it has a d60... 454, etc

    but you are right, I shouldn't build the Jimmy too big until I am a good driver. I get my head in the gutter sometimes, thanks. :)

    make sure it has a 60 before you buy, they could of already swapped a 10blt or d44 in it, and that could be why its so cheap.

    750 cool

    id snag it if i could

    take 650 in one pocket and show him it, see if he takes it

    he should

    maybe even just 600

    if no one has been biting really,

    you can tell just by talking to them, whether they will take a little less and if they just want it gone more than anything else


    never know.


    but that with the lifting arm and all damn id love to find one of those arms.,

    thats impossible here

    i only know of two trucks with a lifting arm on them,

    rare as hell.

    good luck
