I figured since I've been on here for over a year it was about time for a build thread. I'm no where even close to being done.. future plans include bigger meats, dana 60, np205 or maybe even a doubler, HAD shafts, cage, beadlocks, hydro assist, crossover, and a whole ton of other stuff. I'm kinda adding things to the burb as funds come along, trying to take small steps so I can still have fun with it while I add to it. Enough rambling... here's some pics.. I started out with a 1978 K20 Suburban I bought from a good friend for 1000 bucks, most of the money used to purchase it was from the crapload of graduation invitations I sent out. It was origionally used at a sand factory, and was a government truck before that. Nothing too special, just 350/400/203, corp 10 front, 14ff rear, open carrier at both ends with 3.73 gears. I was completely clueless about anything untill I found ck5, which was luckily soon after I bought the burb. It wasn't capable of much, but its all about having fun, even if it is poser fun I soon added an ORD steering brace, which I don't have a pic of in my photobucket, it cost me about 120 bucks. I installed some 20 dollar guages from walmart, which let me know my weak feeling motor was only holding 5 oil psi. I was afraid it might spin a bearing with such low oil pressure, so I bought another motor for it, out of a 73 camaro.. its another 350. Had some issues with the motor, turned out to be some valve adjustment and rocker stud replacement solved it. I threw on my old aluminum edelbrock intake and 600 cfm performer EPS carb, but don't have a pic handy of those right now either.. Got me a Christmas present. Before the Interco Blem site was outted to pirate and everybody else, and before the demand was way up, I got some tires very cheap. Four 33x12.50x16.5" TSL's, brand new, misprints on the sidewall to my door for $366 my girlfriend bought me a seat cover for my birthday Got some kc's and light bar off of ebay.. the light bar has now been sold to a ck5er, and the lights have been moved to the front bumper. Cut my teeth on my first body damage I bought a red top optima, but the battery box was seeing better days So I moved the battery to the rear of the truck Got a rear reciever shackle off of ebay for 23 bucks shipped The burb was kinda low, and had no flex.... Even though I hacked the fenders, the little 33's still wanted to rub with no sway bar. I was also having the tie rod rub on the tire when I turned all the way to the right, because the stock wheels have so much backspacing.. thought about different wheels or backspacing.. but then I said, what the heck, might as well do a suspension lift.. so the lift part collection began..
