    I'm somewhat of a lurker...always a reader, rarely a poster. Anyway, I finally got some pics up...sorry about the F--d in the same folder, but I had to get it on the internet as I'm trying to sell it. Take consolation in the fact that it has a 350. It is obvious I have much work to do on the Jimmy. Most of the truck is still primer, but is has been edged. The firewall is the correct color; it's the lighter silver color from the newest body style Chevy pickups. I'm currently working on the hydraulic clutch pedal (which I obtained from Wilwood and is very nice) and am going to start on the dash and stuff tomorrow...also the wiring harness (Painless). It's got a 3" body lift and the ORD shackle flip on it so far. I want to run the new 37" SSRs so I'm waiting to see how much lift is necessary to run those. A D60 and 14 bolt are in another garage anxiously awaiting the day I can bolt them in.

    Should be sweet when you get it finished! Keep the pics coming. I like the 34 too, I had a 32 for pickup in high school, wasn't even close to as nice as yours though. If I ever get my Blazer finished I will start on my 30 Model A, someday soon.

    The Jimmy's looking good, keep us posted on the progress. Is the 502 a crate engine or was it built up? Also, what gears will you be running in the 14 and 60? Details..details..details..keep up the good work.

    Looks like it's going to be a sweet ride. I like that the F**d engine was painted Chevy orange.[​IMG]

    The D60 and 14 bolt have 4.56s. The 14 bolt has a detroit locker. I slid the front driveshaft in place this morning to see if it would fit with the headers and it does...about 2.5" of clearance.

    Cool. I'm also working on a 70 Jimmy - same gold color with a 454. This month's project is a new wiring harness probably from Painless. If you get a chance post which harness number you used and any problems you ran into! thanks.
