    I have Sunday free and some of the good pull your own yards are open. I saw lots of 8 lug stuff and even a rolled Blazer on 6 inch springs when I pulled my 12 bolt at ecology.

    With the market out here you could buy a clean truck already lifted for 2000-6000 depending on condition. I bought myself a clean original truck as a starting foundation. Do a autotrader search, most days you can find at least 25-30 k5's for sale. Or watch here periodically , people usaully post 'em up when they see 'em. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    You know, this is a family oriented site. You and Marv should probably take this discussion off line... /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

    springer salvage is kind of a joke. It is Marv Springers back yard. He had accumulated all kinds of things back there.
