hey, i've seen that truck before /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif
everytime i see it, i get a lump in my throat /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif
those both your trucks? nice rigs!
Thanks /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif yes they're both mine I just traded /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif for the /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif from fourwheelerjeff /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif a couple of weeks ago
nice what did you trade him?
Nice pics /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif+ /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif= /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif We often go to this gathering of riceburners on saturday nights and I'll flex up on Ducttape's tire and they all gather around in awe (sp?). /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
I traded him my '84 crewcab dually. I'm wanting to get a newer one when I get my wifes suburban paid off.
I like the 11" lift and 39.5's!!! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
the 39.5's are going on my blazer and maybe the 8" springs
i like the tall trucks too, may not be the ticket for rock crawling, but not everyone is into that (i know that will be a /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif for some people), plus i have a blazer for rocks
i am thinking of trying to go 17 on my m1008 and get some 20 inch wheels and run some of those michelin's that are TALL /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif for a mud truck /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

I like tall trucks, too. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif We don't even have any rocks around here, just mud. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
I've dreamed of building a K30 with 12" Superlifts, 1" zero-rates, and custom made 4" polished aluminum body lift for the total 17" lift. Wanted to throw some 46" Firestone Field & Turf tires on it like I had on Brown Turd. Just would look better with the truck up taller to clear the tires better. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif
i like tall trucks to! taller the better in my opinion! lol..i want a lifted crewcab...thats my dream truck! crewcab lifted like 8 inches with 38's or something would do it for me! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
i was going to get 17 by 12 inch superlifts, zero rate and 1 inch longer front shackle in front, shackle flip and traction lift ( by trailmaster, i think i still have one in the parts bin) and the 8 inch rear springs, although all my 8 inch rear springs are 52 inchers, and then a 3 inch body lift, might just have to do it with some 44's until i get more money, 454, 400, 208, 5.13 gears unless i change out the 14 bolt for something else
one thing about the big trucks, people in the cars tend to get the hell out of the way when you are merging in traffic /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif
I wanted to do a K30 this way:
1. 12" front and 8" rear Superlifts (need to move the rear shackle hanger forward 4")
2. ORD shackle flip to eliminate blocks.
3. ORD 1" zero-rates.
4. 4" polished aluminum body lift by a machine shop in Salina, KS for $250. (!!!)
5. ORD HD front shackles.
6. ORD Doubler.
7. 5.13 gears.
8. Firestone Field & Turf tires.
9. 16.1 x 18 Weld Racing S/R wheels with 2.5" back spacing. (!!!)
10. Built 454, 400, 203/205 Doubler.
That's about how I would do it. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif
ya'll need to stop sayin all this stuff cuss its makin me drool without seeing ne pics of that. lol. no more talking bout 17" lifted trucks. lol. later.
I've always wanted to build a crewcab with a short bed, 2.5 ton rockwells, and 52" michelins. lift,engine/trany/transfer undecided
