    it is getting torn apart and going to a reg cab 1 ton. I need something more practicle for work. I am hoping to keep the frame and front part of the cab to build into something like BadDog's Truggy. I do have a set of 46" michelins that need a good home. And it will have rockwells and a 500ci Caddy. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    This was mine the day I brought it home. I bought it from a 70+ yr old man that bought it new in 89, and meticulously changed the fluids and waxed it. It was litteraly showroom fresh /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif
    [​IMG]

    I did 4" with 33's and some nice aluminum wheels first.
    [​IMG]

    The 3/4 ton stuff had about 6" of clearance /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif
    [​IMG]

    Now on 37's trimmed the fenders and removed the chrome only a little bling left.

    Now she is sitting on a 3/4 ton setup 2 1/2" lift and 35" Mtr's. lots of other cool stuff...too much to list /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
