    Well I wound up buying an 87 2wd Burb. It has a tbi454/th400/14ff. Not sure on what gears it has though. Plans are to fix the little bit of rust it has, paint it black, put an 89 to 91 grill in, newer 4 spoke steering wheel, and a set of wheels. Plus there are a couple little items to fix but nothing major.

    Best part is no payments like I would have had on a Cummin's. Why paint your Jimmy? I'm painting the K5 semi gloss black and the Burb will be Gloss black. All we need now is a trailer painted black too. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Could always save and put a cummins in the burb. Thats what I should do with my burb. Convert it to dually, 1 ton with a 60 out front and a cummins under the hood. Really don't think my 97 3/4 ton gasser is gonna do the job as my tow vehicle.
