I say CUCV Pickup. 1: No Smog - Diesel 2: Fuel Injection - Diesel 3: Economy - Diesel 4: SRW 1 Tons 4.56s gears, Rear Detroit 5: One ton frame = stronger, taller, more rigid. 6: Weight : Lightish 1 ton. 7: Military = Cool. 8: Can be had for cheap Lift it, chop the overhang off the back, trim the fenders to your tires, standard Xover etc., and GO. (Run at least 38s). On the other hand...I have a friend who wants to build a more mild rig. No more than 35s, wants a manual. I'm thinking K10 shortbed. Anyone else?
