darn! ck5 for giving me all these ideas, and a mental image of what I wanted my truck to be. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif About 4 months ago I pulled my truck into the drive way for some "freshing." I bought the truck last december it came with 250k miles on it a very tired and leaky 350, no heat, a leakey radiator, a 6 inch lift and dry rotted 31x10.5s and a real mean brake pull. I drove it threw the winter (after fixing the heat) and kept telling myself I was gonna fix it.............eventually. Well I pulled it in to the garage to just r&r the motor,this is the list of what got changed. 1. new gm crate motor 2. 35x12.50s bfg at tas 3. new blocks in rear to replace home made ones 4. new bushing in springs 5. new shackles 6. new u joints 7. new brakes on all 4 corners 8. new calipers 9. new brakes hoses 10. new headman headers 11. new exhuast with thrush mufflers 12. new wiring under hood 13. new optima battery 14. new battery cables 15. new alternator 16. new electric fans 17. new vanner invertor under seat 18. new B&m torque convertor 19. new B&M trans cooler and lines 20 new griffen radiator 21. new headlight and wiper switchs 22. new dash lights 23. new tailgate straps 24. new speedo cable 25. new shocks 26. My new steel bumpers and tire carrier when I get around to finishing them. But on another note, thanks for all the help and advice, I really love my "new" truck and its a lot of fun and I cant wait to go get it buried. The only thing I am /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif about is the 49.73 it took to fill it up. But oh well the price we pay for fun. Ill try to post some pictures tonight.
