    Alright, I'm really into the big tires/low lift school of thought. I've seen a few different fullsize Chevrolets running S-10 bodies. I'm curious about what advantages this offers. I imagine the truck will weigh a lot less. Would you also be able to fit bigger tires with less lift as a result? Also, does anyone have any links to a place that shows how to do this?

    White Knight has a s-10 blazer body on a shortened k-30 frame.
    I think Titanic is going the same.

    Do a search for white knight and it should pull up her links.

    There was a few guys in Moab who had done the same thing and it looked good. the S10 truck made it into Petersons in this latest issue. His brother put an S10 blazer body onto his Fullsize Blazer frame and he said that he lost about 1000 pounds. He said that it also was not very hard at all. The only pain was that he and his brother stretched the front 8 inches to easy fit the engine. I considered the same after seeing how well theirs worked out.

    The drop in weight was 1700 lbs for us. It now weighs 5995 lbs.
    If you think it can't be wheeled just take a look at my web site /forums/images/icons/grin.gif
