So I picked up this solid 87ish tub for 400 bucks. I have an 89 frame in good condition. Plan is to make this a full vert k5 for bombing around town and mild wheeling. 4" springs in the front and shackle flip in the rear. Atleast 36" or 37" radial tires(for now). Drive train is unknown as I can't make up my mind. I want to do a 5.3, 6.0 or 454 tbi for good reliable power and drivability. I could always swap my current stuff into it 350tbi 350 trans and 203/205 to get it going. I guess I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.
I will start with the frame and paint resto/ cutting the half cab off and getting the tub and frame into primer. Most likely will be buying the full boxing kit from DIY4x while I'm at it. This build will not happen overnight but hopefully within the next 3 years
