    Looks like a UFO, who needs headlights. Did you use tube lights or floods? All the Subterainians are over at 73-91 Sub/Truck. Yeah,I'm doing engine swap along with X-case rotate, over the Holiday break, but only get 12/16 thru 1/2 off.

    I just bought a 91 burb. After tinkering on it for a couple of weeks, it runs. Bad transmission leak though. The front and rear air works. I haven't had a vehicle with A/C in a long time. It will stay stock and be my DD and tow vehicle for my Blazer.
    The PO had spent alot of time and money trying to get it running and he finally gave up and sold it to me for $600.00. I spent less than a hundred bucks to fix it so now I have a sweet Burban 4x4 for a total of seven hundred dollars. :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

    Your project is awsome. When you get through, the tire companies should come and ask you to test their tires cause the only thing that could stop the K36 is tread.:bow: A Burb with RSW will be extreme Kool, just like a Hook-n-ladder. Hey, maybe we should start naming these things in that convention, K36 is 4X, 1 ton, 06 body; mine is 1/2 ton so K16. An abbreviated configuration ID code.:confused:
