    Selling my chassis from my 97 Sonoma truggy.
    $1000- Sonoma cab with custom rear ext cab storage box (empty) and no seats. Custom half doors with snap in clear inserts to kinda seal up cab. Get frame/exo cage tube work. Front leaf spring (52" chevys) setup with timbren bump stops (extra for 14" fox resi shocks). Rear link cross member and brackets.
    No lights or anything extra.
    $2000-Everything above plus the rear dual triangulated 4 link setp (2.5x.5 lower links with 3" ballistic joints and 2x.25 upper links with 1.25" heims) and 14 bolt rear axle housing with BTF truss/pinion gaurd (no gears, shafts, brakes)
    $4500-Everything above plus custom tuned mild built TBI 454, th400, 203/205 triple stick doubler and rear HID 1350 CV to 1410 axle end driveshaft.

    What you won't get: front axle but any GM axle will bolt right in, front shaft, seats/harnesses but will leave seat frame so can run an aftermarket seat/harness or remove them and put stock S10 seats in, hydro steering components but mount and steering shaft will be left for a orbital valve or cut mount off and bolt a standard steering gear box back on for mechanical steering, no lights, batterys/switch, shocks, tires/wheels, winches, ect.

    Rig works great with current setup, just outgrowing it. Located in Powell, Wy near yellowstone and Montana state line. I may be able to do some delivery too, I get to Cheyenne from time to time and Billings, Mt often.

    Entertain partial trades for passenger drop 32 spline atlas case or 5.3/6.0 engine.

    Huh? I've always loved this thing and you have it all dialed in... why not wheel it and not mess with it?
    Good deal for sure!

    Wow, can't wait to see that on the trails. I seriously considered buying your parts, but still undecided on what I want to do.

    Those chassis look awesome!!!

    Did you go with the Base, Full tube or Complete kit? If they made a 6 seat version I would re-think my whole truck plan....:doah:
