    Just for kicks, This is my 83 GMC. Have a new bed for it. Doing body work and replacing motor. Hydrolocked my 6.2 last summer, and am finally getting to do something with it. Going to paint it back red, but with a dark grey charcole at the rocker rather than a stripe down the middle.

    Tell me what ya think :D

    Like my baby swampers :rotfl:

    Looks good Steve. Just got a day or two of wrenching left and you'll be back on the trails. :wink1:

    Looks like you've found a way to lighten it up pretty good :D

    I'm planning on a 4 inch lift and some 35's in the future. But right now I'm going to leave it at its current height.

    I am however going to go ahead and replace the rear spring hanger rivits with bolts, with anticipation of a future ord flip.

    I wish I was lightening it up, but it will remain heavy for a while :D
