    SYE'd 241
    HAD 1350 CVs f/r
    turn my 14FF
    D60
    cut and turned 60
    rebuild the 60
    5.13s
    detroit f/r
    shackle flip
    Hill front shackles
    44 or 46" rubber
    Sawzall action
    268HE cam
    roller rockers
    nice alum. intake
    edelbrock truck avenger carb
    headers
    new flow 40s (beat my old ones up taknig them off)
    cable cut outs

    that's it!

    i know i'm dreaming, but hey! /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif:D:D

    SOMETIME IN MY LIFETIME...

    -14 ff with eaton e-locker with 4.10's
    -D60 with 4.10's (but prob a 10 bolt with 4.10's in the meantime)
    -upgaded my 33" baja claws to 35"
    -2 inch body lift and poly mounts to add to my 4 inch susp. lift
    -a winch bumper to mount my winch on!
    -rock sliders...need these soon, rocker panels can't take much more
    -a nice rear bumper
    -oh and MAYBE before i retire...an exo-cage

    By the time I graduate from High School... I want to have (some of this stuff I already have):

    1978 Chevy Cheyenne K10 - 402bb (either fuel injected, or a sweet ass carb), sm465, dual np205's, 5.13 gears, lockright front, detroit rear, D60 front with 35 spline outers, 14FF, 4 wheel disks, dove tailed front and rear, cab narrowed, full cage, Xover with hydraulic assist and high steer, 15x10 Rockstomper Beadlocks with mudrings, 39.5 Boggers (or 42" TSL), snorkled fully, dual optima red tops, Warn 9500HS front, Mile Marker 9000 rear, tube rear with short bed skins, 12 gal fuel cell, Line X interior, shave axles, Reinforce diff covers, chop top, soft top, Kansas street legality (probably never gonna happen), Coils front & rear (coilovers would be cool, but I don't have the funds), tube bumpers, and rocker guards, tube half doors with stock door "skins" attached, dual optimas, onboard air compressor (mod'd A/C unit), little welder, onboard torches, and tons of spare parts /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Getting a trailer here pretty soon (next time I go back to Alabama). And I need to do some stuff to my soccermomish Tahoe (Exhaust, wheels, chip, etc. Bolt on stuff).

    After I get that done, I'll move on to building the Tahoe. I might just sell it, and start with a diesel though. The Tahoe has about 160-165k on it right now. It'll probably have like 190k after high school. The Cheyenne's Odometer reads 97k, but the speedo hasn't been hooked up in forever
