    So i got rearended by a honda and there was a street bike in front of me. well i couldn't stop and figured a buell vs. a chevy on 38's wouldnt be good so i put it in the ditch on its side. ins. comp totaled it but i am gettin 850 and gettin the truck back. if yall remember i just put the cam and intake on in april. soooo...my buddy who does alot of mud racing has an 80 something k5 with dana 60's front and rear 5.13's lockers front and rear. it has between ten and fifteen inches of lift. a 205 divorced case. but it has no motor no tranny and the only interior is a full custom cage, a seat and a steering wheel. no tires on it. he said for 1500 he'll drop it off at the house. can get him down any lower.

    so i could swap my motor, tranny, wiring harness and ECM, and interior and tires. i would have to buy 8 lug 15 inch rims. will my 700r4 bolt up to the 205 with no modification? and do u guys think this is a good idea.

    thanks camokrawler

    sounds kinda too racy for a daily driver but if you just gonna have it to play with I would go for it.

    heck for $1500 the pair of 60s and the cage if it is a well built one would be worth that. Sell the huge lift and go with 56/52s and make some cash back maybe
