    Engine specs?

    Looks clean, tho the fake steelbraided annoys me.. Real or black rubber... Nothing sexier than real AN fittings...

    I agree but it's not bad. I prefer rubber over AN fittings though.

    Ok Ok, you cought me... The heater hoses and PCV hose are fake steel braid over rubber. The dist. vac advance is real. The fuel lines will be real with AN fittings too. I got a bunch of that stainless at a swap meet for $5 so i thought I'd start with it looking nice at least.

    Its a 350SB with a mild cam, double roller timing chain and gears, edelbrock performer intake, holley 670 Truck avenger. That all for performance, nothing special. She ran strong when i took it out of truck I got on trade for something, I just cleaned her up.

    It will be nice when I first wheel it, but I started this truck from having this motor in a pile of cracp 3/4 ton (the cab is from that truck as well) that the frame was broke in 3 places. I've wanted one of these trucks my entire life and i'm trying to not cut corners and get it done right the first time (at least for the most part). It will be a strictly offroad truck and I wanted to build something thats not going to break every weekend.

    Looks good. Nice deal on the braided steel cover stuff! I'd like to do that to my hoses but that stuff is a little expensive.
