    Well, I am building a 1966 GMC and converting it to 4x4 from 2wd. This is first priority because I sold it to a guy in Mississippi who is paying me to put it together and it takes up my free time unless I need to work on my truck to keep it on the road...

    Then I have my 79 K10 daily driver. I borrowed the rear axle out of my truck box trailer to keep it on the road and found out the #'s painted on the rear cover were wrong when I was installing it (cover had 3.70 painted on it from a wrecking yard about 1 year before I got it and made it into a trailer). So I am running 3.40 in the rear and 3.73 in the front. Picked up another 12 bolt but decided to go 3/4 ton instead rather than keep changing 12 bolts.

    So I am now gathering parts to build a 3/4 ton frame (only missing the front axle w/4.10's at this point). I am picking up a free parts truck with a 3/4 ton frame and 4" lift in San Jose, CA later this month then I will build the drive train and swap my body over when it is ready...

    Then I have my trail rig project which is a pile of parts, 1965 K20 frame, 1963 GMC cab, 1 ton Corp 14 bolt rear axle, 6 lug dana 44 front axle, soon to pickup a bunch of parts from a salvage yard including 351 V6 engine, 5 spd tranny, large flared fenders (from 2 ton truck)...

    I only live 2 hours from Portland right now but may soon be moving close to Umatilla since I found a place for rent with a shop /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Mine is an ongoing "project". It'll probably never be "finished". it'll be a fun ride along the way though! /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    Ya, my motivation went right out the window with Daylight savings time! /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    Well I maybe doing just that. I'm trying to sell my daily driver and the Blazer dosn't have doors anymore so............I figure its the next best thing. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif
    I only drove it for like a week after I got it running. Then the motor went bad, so I decided to do a major overhaul on it. New suspension, brakes, seats, wheels/tires, you know basic stuff /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gifrighttt. So I'm in over my head with stuff to do, and may need to get it done in a short amount of time. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
