    I couldn't really concentrate on just one. They are all inter-connected somehow in my krazy mixed up plans of parts swapping and build ups.

    Took an intermission to tow a boat for my brother and pick up another frame someone wanted gone.

    I think you're going to be one of those old guys hording the good stuff in 30 years. When you die, your family will find rare parts totaling half a million dollars stashed in various places. :haha: I envy you Alan.:o

    that is a beautiful piece of real estate you have there. if i had that much land, i would definitely be in boat as you. fortunately my house doesn't even sit on one full acre, so i'm limited to owning just 6 vehicles and a trailer.

    Here's how they inter-connect:

    From the red '83: Motor goes to '85 1-ton, rear lift springs go to '80 GMC, tranny and T-case came out (broken coupler sleeve), rear end goes to Camo Blazer, front 6" springs go to '85 1-ton, front extended shackles and front end went to Camo Blazer.

    From the brown '85 3/4 ton that never was finished 100%: Motor goes to an '82 Blazer, 3/4 ton 3.73 axles go in trade to get the '82 Blazer, 465/205 go to '85 1-ton frame, bed goes to '85 1-ton frame, nose clip goes to '84 K5 Blazer, 2" lift gets sold.

    From the 1980 GMC: Front Dana 4.56 60 goes to '81 Suburban, motor came out... closed chamber heads go to 454 that will go into '82 Stepside, rear axle goes to Orange '75 Blazer, rear shackle flip goes to Camo Blazer, 2.5" glasspack exhaust goes to '81 Suburban, rear springs go to red '83.

    From the '85 1-ton: 350 motor goes to red '83, round pattern 205 gets adapted to NV4500 and goes to Little Crew Cab, front end and wheels get used down the line, exhaust system goes to '80 Chevy, dashpad goes to Big Crew Cab.

    From the Orange Blazer: 14-bolt rear with 4.10s and detroit goes to Blue Blazer, Dana 60 front with 4.10s goes to '73 International truck, 4" lift rear blocks go to Suburban.

    Other parts thrown into the mix:
    1. a 60 front end from Utah Crew Cab that spent the last year under the Diesel goes to '85 1-ton. Front nose from '85 Suburban goes onto '85 1-ton with High Sierra 3500 emblems.

    2. Into '80 GMC- 14-bolt with Detroit Locker and 4.88's, Roller 454, Dana 60 front with 4.88s.
