    All currently on a 76-80 Jimmy (not sure on year).

    sm465, np205, minimum of 3/4t axles (8 bolt, not sure what axles though, still have to compare pics to axle ident page), 4-6 inch lift (all spring in front, blocks in rear w HD spring pack), driveshafts, etc.

    $500 CAD for the whole truck minus the "strong running 327" it has in it.

    I know that the tcase has been pulled recently (all painted a nice blue colour, obviously dropped for this, not sprayed while on truck). To me this might mean that the tcase has had some work on it (people don't pull tcases just to paint them. And even if they do, it'll mean that it should be in good working order.)

    The engine has also been painted recently, which might also mean that the tranny has been worked on.

    Questions:

    1. Is this a good deal, given that they are all in decent working order?
    2. is a big block lift (in rear spring pack) considered bad?
    3. how do i tell the difference between hydro and mech clutch?

    seems descent

    2. is a big block lift (in rear spring pack) considered bad?

    fine for street but perfect candidate for a shackle flip

    3. how do i tell the difference between hydro and mech clutch?

    does it have a resivior for the clutch?
