    Yep, I'm getting a fourwheeler since it'll be cheaper for me to have fun on until I get established in a better career.

    Let's see....

    - 70 something 350 with reman'd Quadrajet on it, cheap headers dumping into two stacks behind the cab w/rain guards (LOUD!!!!)

    - Freshly rebuilt TH-350 tranny with reverse-manual valve body

    - NP-205 w/10 spline front output

    - D44/14B combo. open front w/drive flanges, welded rear

    - 4" lift springs on front; unsure of make. rear is a redneck shackle flip (just cut the bottom of the hanger out and flipped the shackle

    - new shocks...HAHA! Gabriels i think, but they work.

    - M1008/9 brushguard/shackle hangers, and Hella foglights

    - rear "cage" IS NOT MADE OF ROLLBAR MATERIAL. it is, in fact, muffler tubing. That's right, el cheapo just for looks and spare tire

    - worn out 35x12.50x16 SSR's on chrome D steelies. spare is 36" Goodyear military tire on a white rim.

    - 22 gal. Jaz fuel cell. 45* filler neck, quick fill and regular style cap included, GM style sending unit

    - LED brake lights that work, but the wiring needs to be straightened out

    - chassis is an 87 K5 frame, chopped off after rear spring hangers (may be bent)

    - body is an 85 C10 cab

    - all drivetrain is from a 73 K20

    - truck was licensed, but I doubt you'd want to


    Now for the price. I'd like to get $1500 for it if I can, but I will entertain all reasonable offers on this POS....HAHA!

    PM here, post up, or email to wooden_dog_18@yahoo.com

    Yeah, I've been working a lot lately, so I haven't been able to come around like I used to. I passed the test and was placed on an eligibility list for hire. My guy on the inside says that I'll be hired in June, but I'm not going to put all my eggs in that basket. We'll see though. I wish I could make it to DPG, but I'm sure I'll be working, then hopefully I'll be riding my new Honda TRX420 Rancher!!!

    What year is it listed on the title as? When was it last registered/inspected? Can it be made street legal w/o too much effort (I have not tow rig or trailer)? Got any interior shots? Thanx! :D

    It's listed as an 85 Chevy, but I believe it's a salvage title. I think the inspection went out either this month or in Feb.

    To make it street legal would only take sorting out the wiring from where I had to botch it a little. Other than that, I would check into the rear cab mount. To me, I felt safe with it. You may feel otherwise.

    I'll get some interior shots for you. I can tell you that the only factory gauge in it is the speedometer. It has some cheap Advanced Auto gauges in the dash (oil pressure gauge line leaks), and an Auto Meter fuel gauge.

    The ashtray doesn't exist. A battery disconnect switch resides in it's place, as well as the push-button starter....

    Pics are definitely worth a thousand words on this thing. Let me get those before I write even more. HAHA!

    I'd be willing to deliver it to you for about $100 extra.
