..redneck people just like me. My last exam was Monday so I've been thinking up all sorts of crazy ideas since then because I don't have to go to work until Monday. I have a 4" lifted rusty-as-hell 79K5 and a 87C10 with a smoked transmission. I think it'd be blingin' to put the C10 cab and TBI motor on the K5 frame. It'd be bedless and a wheeling rig. The idea is functional whether it be ugly or not. And street legal. I might not have enough money to go to school this summer so I might end up with a whole lot of free time (work is part-time). While the two are 500 miles apart, I could gut the K5 and haul it where the C10 is. All I'd need to do is find a 700R4/NP208 for the K5, a spool for the 12 bolt, and some 36-38" rubber. I think with careful attention to weight I can get the rig down to 3,000lbs give or take a couple hundred. Survival of the 10 bolt and 12 bolt won't be burdened with a lot of weight and I've seen GMCLegacy's heavy truck sit on a Dana 44 with 40" TSLs that took quite a bit of abuse. My question is, has anyone done a redneck front end narrow job? I'm talking about bending the fenders right in front of the hood springs so you can retain the factory hood springs and hinges. You'd still be bending the front fenders in before the centerline of the axle. If you're slick, you could blend the cuts and welds with some elite brazing skills.
