FAT BASTARD 81 C30 Service Truck

4x4 conversion, clean it up and outfit it for work.

Overview

So, I picked this truck up in a trade deal plans were to put the bed on Smokey and use the cab on my single cab K30 project.

But after doing some measuring of the bed , it won't work because this is a Cab Chassis truck so the cab to axle distance is not the same as a pickup.

So after going over the truck I decided it would be better to just swap in a set of CUCV axles in and convert it to single wheel.

I will run the Toyo MT 37-13.50 17 which is a E rated tire good for 4300 lbs per tire (about 700 more then the e-rated stock tires in dual configuration )

454 will just get a good tuneup and possibly a new intake and Valve Covers . And definitely an upgraded alternator.

Front will get an old warn winch bumper with 17k smittybilt .


Shoe String budget here, so everything has to come from my current parts pile or from trading/selling parts.
