    Hmm does that include all the parts rigs that went into making the one main project? /forums/images/icons/grin.gif That would be at least 12 trucks that I have parted out making my wheeling rig, I have been off road in my wifes 89 Sable wagon a couple times too! Had to knock the dents out of the tranny pan afterwords but I was very impressed at how far we could take it.

    Do they all have to be running at the same time to count?

    Two K series and neither are "wheeling" rigs at the moment.
    The restored 78 K10 is my daily driver (sweet ride), and the 80 K?? is still a work in progress (waiting for A/C install, installing the new lift springs in the rear, front driveshaft upgrade, steps, tonnea cover, paint), and it will probably only tow and truck pull. I'm looking at getting a beater blazer or heep (which will have Chevy fullsize axles and drivetrain) for a wheeling rig. First I have to get a house with a HUGE garage /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    <font color="green"> I dump plenty of cash into my one truck, I don't need more! Personally I'd rather have one bad-ass rig than a bunch of half-ass ones. </font color>

    Just the blazer to wheel, but we're going to start on a '74 Landcruiser for my wife's ride next year.
