    78 GMC SW 17\" lift 1 ton......PARTING OUT!!!

    I am selling my baby......I have owned this truck since '92 when it was bone stock...I have lost interest and persued a new money eating hobby.....It has been sitting for a couple years and I've finally decided its time to let it go.....Here is a list of everything thats there....

    Body:

    78 GMC short wide has a 85 dual headlight front clip....A/c cab ,tilt, lund visor,bushwacker cut-outs,steps,very straight but needs paint...

    Running Gear:

    Cadillac 500 Big block, all stock except aluminum intake and holley 850 double pumper. Turbo 400 tranny with heavy duty converter and shift kit...Married 203 transfer case w/ part-time conversion....

    Dana 60 frontend with rebuilt Power-loc, warn hubs,Dyna-trac cross-over steering....FF 14 bolt rear.....1350 series drive shaft....4.10 gears......Believe it or not with the caddy 500, I never had the desire to go lower (weaker) gears, even with the 44s....

    12" superlift front springs...Frontend has custom built front spring perches and shackles to add another 3" of suspension lift..(done right and solid)...The rear has Superlift 8" springs with a reversed shackles to add 4 inches and a 2" block.....2" body lift.....

    I have allready sold the brand new 44 boggers and wheels that were on it....Truck will come with small stock tires and wheels if sold.....I also have some 35" BFGs with chrome wheels if someone bought it and wanted to lower it down some.......Truck is located in Bend ,OR 97702....If you want to talk or ask questions PM me and I will give you my # or I will do my best to answer here from time to time..I will also try to put up pics soon....
    New Price!!!!! /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif
    $2999 takes it........I would prefer to sell it whole but If it dosnt sell soon and there is enough interest I may consider parting it out...Might consider trades for quads,sonowmobile,dirtbike,67-68 camaro,guns,golf cart..... or???

    Thanks..........Tony

    Just ran low range I take it?

    If I had anything of value that you were looking for... I'd try to get it. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif But I don't. Cool truck though. I'll tell a couple people about it.

    kinda off topic, but just curious...how well did your front drive shaft work at that angle?
