Overview

I've been asking lots of questions and getting EXCELLENT ANSWERES on here. So, first of all THANK YOU ALL!!!! so here's my 91 when I bought it in october of 09. all stock with the exception of the obvious, a 6" lift and 35's

I got it without a trans and put my TCI 700R4 in it and thought everything was going to be peachy... WRONG! After getting the tans in I fired it up and motor was knocking. well that sucked. So it sat until I went back to mass to get my other car and a free motor. Popped the pan off and what do I see? It's full of water! cleaned it up, put it in ran it HARD for 800 miles. What a suprise, it pukes... sooooo Perfect time to make it into a real truck!

I'd been Buying/saving parts for a while before I moved out here to Colorado. So far I had New TSL42x15x17 Dana 60 and 14 bolt locked on detroits and 5.13's the TCI trans, a Marine 454, warn XD9000, and some small misc stuff.

While it's been down. I swapped a couple things. I sold the 10 bolts, sold the 35's, In with the TONS and 42's!

He's also going to be doing all my wheel well :hack: (It needs a LOT)but making it look decent at the same time.

None of the bumpers are complete yet, just the main body so far. I'll keep pics as they progress.

Future plans are 56's up front 64's out back, cross over w hydro assist, drop the 454 in. NP241 SYE. Rear disc conversion.

While I should have been putting in the extra time on paying customer work to pay down debt or get ahead..... I tell myself I want an RV. I've been camping out of my Express van for about 4 years. It works, but I wanted a little more. SO while cruising craigslist one afternoon, I run across this 1973 Chevy Cheyenne Super 30 with a Chassis mount Mitchell and sons Camper attached. I should have never went and looked at it. I should have told myself, "that's nice" and kept cruising.. But I...

Recently picked these two K30's up. Well and a few others.. 87 454 TBI TH400 NP205 3.73's. Kind of rough. But It'll get better... Slowly. Got it with no bed. Through some Craigslist searching I was able to find some body parts to make it solid again. Found this clean bed about 40 miles south. Came off a retired Air Force truck. No tailgate but those are easy enough to find. I thought I had a pretty nice thing going on until I found this! 86 K30 350 SM465 NP205 4.10's Originally...

Ok so the plan. As some of you know, me and a friend have made a couple of trips from here(Colorado springs) to the easy coast with some rust free parts. We've decided to keep going with it as long as there's a demand and money to be made. We've made these runs with whatever we had that ran. A 99 7.3 stroker van, 95 k3500 6.5TD. And a trip this coming oct 2nd with a friends dmax. We came across this truck when removing one of the 12 truck bed we'll be hauling back this trip. As stated above...
