    I have been dreaming lately of all the possiblitlies! My dream truck, and what I would like to build soon.... 1977 Chevy K30. Chop the frame to short-box specs and add a SWB box from a half ton. Build a custom tube frame that incorporates in cab roll cage, and exo-cage for the fenders/hood. Lift it about 6 inches with custom long-travel suspension (working on designs) and tons of fender cutting. 38.5 ssr's. Turboe'd injected 502 crate. SM465 with 205/203 doubler. 14FF rear and Dana 60 front with 4.56 gears. Detroit rear, ARB front. Lots of custom stuff, with plenty of redneck traits!

    I would LOVE to build this truck, but alas, money is and issue and I don't have any...so for now I am just dreaming! Anybody else have some good ideas??

    I would really like to have enough money where I could get of course a really crazy big block, but also stuff from Dynatrac. If money was no object, I'd go there first. Get a 35 spline D60 for the front and a Dana 70 built to the max for the rear. Tons of other stuff.
