    I have a stock 88 s10 with a 2.8. The motor only has like 50K miles on it and the tranny is trash(2nd one). My brother has a wrecked one that is the same model ext cab short bed that I think has taller gears in it. Right now it has 30" tires on it. It won't run in OD pretty much at all. You are better off without even using it because all it does is shift back and forth. If I just do a strait axle swap tube to tube or maybe springs to springs am I going to have to worry about the angles and stuff like that? I really want to get rid of this thing but if I can give some more seat of the pants power I would like to do that also? Any thoughts or suggestions? /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
