I'm in the middle of my rear axle swap at the moment and it's turning out to be a larger PITA than I ever imagined. I decided to do a 4" shackle flip and a 2" AAL at the same time to replace the 4" blocks and give me an extra 2" of lift. Long story short, the gas tank has rust holes in it and started leaking when I took it out to bolt in the shackle flip, all of the bushings and bolts were seized throughout the leaf springs, and I had to destroy the shackles themselves to get it all apart. So now I need a new tank, new bushings, new shackles, and my Oh Sh!t fund has been drained considerably. To make things even better, I was at work tonight when the mother of a former girlfriend came in and told me how nobody wanted their old truck that was for sale: '79 3/4 that ran like a Swiss watch. I pulled their cattle trailer for them a couple of times with it. I asked her how much they wanted for it and she said they started at $1k but were down to $400. I almost crapped a brick on the spot. I have no place to put it since I live in town and my parents would kill me since I would then have 3 vehicles until I parted it out, but I paid $1600 for my K5 and it doesn't run as well as this truck did. This is getting to be a really long post but here's my point. I'm gonna stick with this because I know it'll be worth it in the end and my family doesn't think I can pull it off which makes me work even harder. What I'd like from you guys is your best story, best picture, best accomplishment that made you feel good about your truck to keep me at it. Like I said, I know it'll be worth it in the end but right now I'm having a hard time seeing it. Don't be afraid to tell me to shut up and get back to work too Sometimes the best thing you can do for a person is kick 'em in the @ss. Thanks guys, I know someone will come through.
