    Metro, don't hijack....:rolleyes: At least man up and get rid of your pics - this thread isn't about your truck.

    ascuro, those rollers are all borrowed....when I found the truck, it was sitting on the rotors and drums, no clip, no windshield, and just looked trashy. Still does. I borrowed rollers to get it to the house, but I need to return them to my buddy's place.

    ryan, I got the banner from a JD representative a couple years ago - he was setting up at a bar I was at, my friend and I posed for pics with "the product", and were given shirts, banner, and ;) samples.

    As for the destruction, I'm gonna take out the 2.2 and 700R4 and offer them up for sale. Same for the rear axle (7.5" 10b).

    From there....still thinking/planning. I have a TBI 350, 465, and triple stick doubler.... Decisions, decisions....

    I don't know yet.... It's really a choice of keeping the bed on the frame, or not keeping it on.:confused: I'm leaning towards keeping the bed, 'cause I like the look - and, I know that over time, more tube will get added, and more sheetmetal will get tossed....

    yeah, I'm not seeing the point here... the entire drivetrain is being sold... entire body gotten rid of. Why not just use the $400 to buy tube for a buggy?

    That was my point with the pics! Why buy that and waste $400 bucks when he got nothing for it. I guess some people just live in a special place :screwy:

    It's a '94. Yes, it's a 700. Plus, I would think the cost to ship it would make it unreasonable.:D

    And, as for anyone questioning why I bought it, your comments aren't welcome. WHY did I buy it? So I could build an S10....interesting concept, huh?!?:rolleyes: Yes, I'm scraping everything on the frame except the body mounts.... Everything I need for a cab truck is already here - one stop shopping.

    If you don't have anything constructive or meaningful to contribute, don't post. For everyone else who does, I'm all ears.



    Who said I was getting rid of the body?

    its not a 700... 4L60Es look just like 700R4s, but with another big electrical connector on top of the pan rail, and they started in '93.

    4L60's don't have a tv cable. 700's do.

    Should be a dead giveaway.

    Looks like a good start with alot of potential. When my 96 Blazer goes to hell Ive been thinking of building it into a rig. Then im not fighting a weak frame from the start.

    Yea, I like how this thing is 'boxed at more than half the length of it - another reason I'm running it instead of that fullsize frame I used to have.
