    I have just purchased a running and driving 1 ton single wheel which I will promply take apart and put on my Blazer. 38.5's here I come. Best part is I got the whole truck for 1200 bucks :-))). So I bought the 60 and everything else came free.

    I thought I was wrong once,
    but I was mistaken

    Cool beans, this winter I plan on doing the doubler and soon as I get a new daily driver may cut the top off, sounds like we may end up with close to the same rig when all is said and done.
    You may think about doing a gear change and locker install at the same time if you have the funds.

    If you plan on dismantling the K30, let me know. I would be interested in the bare frame if its in excellent condition. It would need to be free of rust, welds, cracks, bends, etc. I need a base frame to start with. Sandblast, paint, install motor, drivetrain, etc. then lastly, transfer the body of another K30 over to it.

    Back from Salt lake. The thing looks like [censored] but it sure runs and drives good. Came up Vail pass at 70+ and the motor was just going along without the aid of the 4 bbl. Maybe Butch needs a 400 instead of that 350:-)). Wes it is a crew cab so I dont think the frame will help you any.
