    Hey guys, do any of you remember the project stinky truck from Petersons? (I think??) It was a diesel blazer that they did a series build up on.

    I am starting my own stinky build. I came across a '85 diesel K5 that is running for $500. The body is straight, it has aluminum wheels and 33 inch BFG's, and even a winch bumper. The transmission is toast. The guy just spent $400 on a brand spanking new radiator even!

    Here is what I have for it so far:

    - 6 inch lift using 6 inch springs in the front and DIY4X's shackle flip in the rear and 2 inch springs. (already ordered)

    - Dana 60 front and 14ff rear with 4.56:1 gearing with detroit in rear (already have)

    - crossover steering ( haven't decided on vendor) Any suggestions?

    - 38x15.5x15 TSL's on 15x10 steel bullet holes (already have)

    _ Tranny....still haven't decided on that one...any suggestions?


    Thanks for any input.

    Get an SM465 or an NV4500 and you'll never have to replace a tranny again...:D
