    Check this out guys! 5.3L V8, 4L60E, NP243 (I think?). 4 wheel disk brakes with 4.10 gears and a factory Posi out back :D

    Took it for a drive around the block tonight, and noticed it has a bit of a pull to the left, and the cab has some air noise, but the engine sure sounds nice!

    haha, kid was moving at 140 km/h (about 85 mph) when he dropped two wheels off the side of the road. When he pulled the wheel to bring himself back onto the road, caused the truck to launch sideways. When that happened it immediately started to barrel roll. Unfortunately, the kid wasn't wearing his belt, and was ejected from the truck, and got steamrolled by the truck... The truck then hit the ditch, and did a couple end over end flips until it stopped...

    The kid was badly hurt, but survived, his girlfriend who was strapped in hardly got hurt at all, just a couple bruises from the seatbelt.

    Pretty amazing, I can actually drive the thing around, it does have a major pull to the left, cause of some seriously mangled a-arms / frame rails etc, and the roofline is a bit low for my liking, but it runs like a top, and that is all that matters! The engine is going to wind up in my 80 K25 to replace the TPI, and if I can, I'll scavenge a few other electronics from inside...

    I paid 800 bucks for just the engine and everything to make it run along with couple other electronic modules. I'm helping the kid part it out though :)

    Has only 52 000 miles on the odometer :D
