    1 inch body lift if that


    1 tons of course, 456s locked mabey something custom like i HAD before for the front .....:rotfl:

    (after having it i would never go carb again, tuning from a laptop is great)


    33s


    Get into a doubler later on.......



    Just have a simple capable rig i can screw around in, with major HP , so i can get back to the point of it all , (witch was going out with my sons and having off road adventures together) :D ( wich its been a PITA so far):D


    Nothing to crazy ,just a clean capable rib.



    Then add crazy axles later on he he :deal: :haha:



    Something simple , reliable, and not too crazy of a lift,non rusted out,,, not too big of tires, just something mild to start with.Just have fun, what its all about. :laugh:


    Even leave off the Injection part for a while if need be,


    Whatcha think? :laugh: To start with ?:laugh:

    That truck looks too nice to start stripping for parts! :)

    If you can swap an engine/tranny back in, sure, but if not, you might get lucky and find someone that is willing to pay for the goodies it's got, and not just going rate for an '85 K5 in great(?) shape.

    Dunno what to say about emissions...typically there are still some pretty cool things you can do even with CA emissions requirements, it just takes some serious planning and research to make sure the end result is something that's still legal. Emissions alone seems like a poor reason to get rid of an outstanding looking vehicle!

    WHO ME??????:haha: I supose by now you have a little bragging rights with the way your rig is now, but dammit i remember a time when it wasnt that way!!!! :D :haha: I just cant seem to get it together lol :haha: raisning a family is hard lol , and it costs cubic dollars :D


    Dyeager=

    I dont know what to say lol, as the 73-75 will already have a sm465 in it, and a 205! Thats a good thing i think. So if i rape the 85 it dosent make any sense to put in the 700r4 tranny , i dont think. It would be rediculous just to grab the motor out of the 85 after i re did all the spaghetti mess of vacum lines, and all the stuff the 85 has under the hood. Went through the trouble already.


    Or does it he he :haha:

    Should i proceed to RAPE? :D
