    Well, I got a call today. A friend of mine wants to sell me his '79 Chevy 3/4 ton 4x4 with a rebuilt 350, 4.10 gears, Dana 44 front and 14 bolt rear, TH350 and 205.

    It has a 1 yr. old Superlift 12" Suspension lift, 3" Body lift, and 44" Gumbo Monster Mudders. All it needs are drivelines made/modified for the lift. The body is straight except it needs a front right fender and fender flare replaced.

    He wants $3000 for it. I know he just paid over $1100 for the lift, and quite a bit for the tires, so I figure $3000 for what it is isn't too out of line.

    I figure if anything, I could buy it, pull the lift and tires off of it, then re-sell it as a stock height '79 3/4 ton 4x4 for $3000. I don't know...I'm so confused, its not as if I dont have enough going on already. <FORM METHOD=POST ACTION="http://coloradok5.com/forums/dopoll.php"><INPUT TYPE=HIDDEN NAME="pollname" VALUE="1026374950mountainexplorer">


    What should I do?
    <input type="radio" name="option" value="1" />Buy the truck and keep it
    <input type="radio" name="option" value="2" />Buy the truck, keep parts, and re-sell it
    <input type="radio" name="option" value="3" />Forget about it and don't bother
    <input type="radio" name="option" value="4" />Shut up and stop bothering others with my decisions.

    No such thing as too many trucks... Lets see my collection so far:
    1979 K10
    1965 Chevy K20
    1954 IHC COE
    1957 IHC dump truck
    1978 Dodge Crewcab
    1989 Ford Crewcab diesel
    1973 Chevy parts truck...

    I think that is all of the trucks /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    where did u get those 36inch goodyears. I've heard of these from another post that said that they were only like $50 a piece because they were military spec. or something.

    anyway i called my local goodyear dealer and asked about them a little while ago and they said they have never heard of them.

    They are the Bias ply Hummer Tires. There's a local used tire shop here in Spokane who's owner gos to military surplus auctions and buys up a bunch of the 36" Bias and 37" Radial Goodyear Hummer tires. That's where my friend bought his 36's. He paid $500 for the set with aluminum wheels.
