    the shop i jus started working at has a mid 80s K30 dually out back that this guy wants to sell, its got $4000 into a new motor and he wants $2500 for it. i cant buy it ne time soon but my the time i move back to vegas next nov it could be mine. so what should i do if i buy it? convert it to single wheel since its a reg cab short bed? or put the D60 under my sub? how much work is it to convert a dually 60 to a single 60? /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    Just swap the bearing hubs, or get them machined down. Couple $100 either way.

    If you don't buy it, I would be interested. I got some plans that would fit very nicely into...
