I'm liking the '82 Stepside I just got. Originally I was going to put the 396 out of it in my Orange '75 K5 and the 1-ton axles with 5.13's under the "Big" Crew Cab, then put a 350 and 3/4 ton stuff under it and sell it. Now I'm half tempted to keep the stepside as it is. It's already the way I like all my rigs... big block, Dana 60/14-bolt, 465/205... and it's the only bodystyle GM truck I don't have in the fleet yet. BUT, I didn't put it together myself. If I kept it, I wouldn't want to change a thing, and I'd be going by the "Bought not Built" motto, unlike my Orange Blazer. The Orange Blazer won't keep a motor in it longer than 10 months (thats the longest a motor has lasted in it). I've had 7 motors in it since I got it for $400. I parted out what running gear it had, and basically had the tub/frame for free. The only money I have into it is $250 in the 14-bolt and Detroit, $350 in 3" dual exhaust with Flowmasters, and about $400 into rims and tires. Plus $20 into the Wal-Mart spray paint Orange/Black paint job. It's the only full removable top Blazer I have. Currently, the Orange Blazer has a smoking 454 that needs to be pulled out. The rockers are rusted out. Only the drivers seat is bolted down. If I sold it... it would be hard to get much out of it whole. I could probably part it out and get nearly $2800 for all the parts, of which I have less than half that into. But that doesn't cover my $3900 cost of the Stepside. I already have two other K5's... a '76 Camo Blazer and an '84 K5. And if I keep the stepside as it is, then I still have to get 5.13s for the Crew cab. And I'd be sacrificing and demolishing or selling one of my children (the Orange Blazer). What should I do? What would you do?
