    So about two weeks ago I buy this 85 K30 for $1800. I test drove it and checked out the axles. Looked like new and ran pretty well. Also hade a fresh rebuild on the 350 and looked it.

    Anyway, it was nice this weekend so I decided to go through it. Changed the t-case, tranny, oil, front diff, & air filter. Ran out of time for the rear diff. Will try to fit that in this week some time. Runs 100% better know.

    While I was under it, I discovered it had a 205. (Someday this'll make a good doubler.) I had been told it was a 208. Also discovered it has 4.56 gears. The little tag was still on the front diff cover. Upon inspecting the front gears, they look brand new.

    Now, maybe I'll get real lucky and find a locker in the rear /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Just figured somebody else might think this was a cool find.
