    It won't fit a K20, they only fit under 71 Jimmy's like mine, so you might as well just sell it to me cheap, I'll even trade for the d44 that's under there now, hehe, j/k

    to bolt it under you need:
    1 case of a premium alcoholic beverage
    2 jackstands (to hold the case of beer)
    2 friends to help drink the beer
    1 friend to put the rear in

    no really. bigger u-bolts was all i needed...and a steering block to go under the kingpin cap...if its lifted.

    Congrats on your find, good luck on the install. I just finished installing a D60 in my '74 K10. Unbolted the 10-bolt, and the D60 bolted right in. I did replace all seals and bearings, tie rod ends, u-joints, etc and added extended brake lines. JK5 lended a hand when needed, everything went smoothly.
