1991 Chevy Crew Cab "R" / "V" Conversion

Overview

I have been a lurker here for a while and finally made enough progress with my project to start a build thread. Truck started out a 1991 Chevy R3500 Crew Cab with a TBI350 and a 4l80e trans. This truck is not going to be a "trail rig", it may see some trails but im not building it for flex etc. The end goals are a Cummins swap with a NV4500 & NP205 with 37-40" tires that can still pull a trailer when needed.

Nov. 2008ish - When i brought it home

Dec. 2008ish - Then i cleaned out the cab and installed some 33X12.5X16.5 tires, installed seats from a 2004 Extended cab Chevy and removed the ugly grill guard.

And that brings it up to date, currently looking for a 4wd NV4500 so i can swap it in along with my NP205 and make it a real 4wd. Thanks for looking.
