    Sorry guys, just figured I'd share the good news. Bought this last week and it showed up yesterday. Its a 88 1 ton crew cab SRW 4x4 RUST FREE /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif Now I need to due a little research as to who makes a good lift for 1 ton's. I want to lift it 4 inches and put 33's. Still want to be able to pull a 5th wheel. But right now it sure sits low to the ground /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

    /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif Cool
    I have an '81 Crew cab...sure sat real low when I first got it. I put a 4" lift under it from a 1/2 ton Shortbed truck. All I had to do was have the rear u-bolts made along with one front U-bolt (the wide one) and I bought two longer bolts at the hardware store that bolt into the D60 housing.

    Was fine that way with 33's until I put a 6" lift under it from a Suburban and 35's. Then I had to go buy a D60 steering block.

    EXCELLENT! I got mine a few months ago and have the same plans for it after Christmas (it's getting prepped for a shiney new paint job right now! ).
