    So I get a call from MNorby on Thrusday about a guy with a set of 1-tons for cheap down in Powell.

    Long story short, $600 and a 200 mile round-trip drive got me a D60/D70 combo, a straight 1-ton crew cab frame with a 77 crew cab body with a few salvagable parts, and a spare 14 bolt. He's even gonna lincoln-lock them for me (since spending $ on a what my wife calls a "Junk Truck" nearly cost me half my stuff, there's no way I'm gonna drop $1000+ on front & rear lunchbox lockers)

    So, in the next month or 2 I'll finally be 1-tonned & double-beadlocked.

    Thanks Matt!

    Sounds good. You going to re-gear now? I'm setup with 4.88's, but still only 35's. Time for 37's or 38's...

    The 60/70 setup is supposed to have 4.56's in them and since I'm runnin 4:10's in my 3/4tons now it'll be a step up.

    Sweet score man! Before you swap those axles you should go kill that welded 10b and post up the pics of the carnage!
