    Just buy what you feel like you want to go out and play with. How much money you want to put out as an initial price and how much you want to dump into it later. Good luck /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Then yeah, go find that ragged beater truck or blazer that is already the condition you are looking for and don't care if it gets beat up any more and go out and have a blast wheeling. People to that all the time.

    C20's don't come 4x4. C=2wd. K=4x4.
    You want a K20 or a K30.
    Personnaly I think the sweet set up would be a K5 blazer frame with a Pickup cab on 1 ton running gear and a flat bed bobbed right after the rear spring hangers on 38's. that is about the right ticket for most trails. I got half a mind to build one too.

    <font color="green"> A 6" body lift AND a 6" suspension lift for 35s!? Not only is that way too much lift for 35s, but a 6" body lift is not exactly safe. For 35s on a beater, you could do no lift at all and just chop the fenders. Keep the center of gravity nice and low. I'd recommend looking for a beat up 1 ton, lift it maybe 4 or 6", chop the fenders and run some 38s or 39.5s. It would look cool and be very capable. Or get the 1 ton and a beat Blazer and do a running gear swap from the 1 ton to the Blazer, that would be a great truck for tight trails because of the short wheelbase.</font color>

    [/ QUOTE ] funny you say that...shaggy k5 and i were just discussin that. just weld the diffs, remove the roof fab up some tube and aim it at whatever you want...the injection and running gear is the stumbling block (as always) cant afford two rigs...at least one is legal
