I will try to keep everyone up to date on my build up as it progresses. Right now I am still finallizing the plans but this is what I got so tell me what you think. Truck as it sits 79 GMC sierra 1500 388 t350/203 44 w/ 3.73 open 12 bolt w/ 3.73 open hydroboost 4" lift springs in the front 4" blocks in the rear 2" BL Plans are as follows 388 to become tpi heater removed firewall shaved all new wiring (including tpi) Goal is to completely clean up the engine bay front suspension gm d60 w/ 4.88's and a selectable locker cage offroad extended radius arms w. SAS kit (basically the little c's needed to put radius arms on the axle) Leaf spring purches and shock purches shaved. fox 2.5" reservoir coilovers 16" travel (possibly a set of prerunner shocks to assist due to fullsizes being heavy). Limiting straps. Possibly be swapping to 3/4ton brakes to assist in saving wieght. Steering Northwest fab crossover steering w/ a panhard rod. Possibly hydro assist. But dont know if that would help or hurt. Rear suspension dodge d60 hd FF w/ 4.88's and a full spool, Disc brakes ORD shackle flip w/ a set of deaver or national 60" leaf springs (2-4" lift not sure yet) fox 2.0" prerunner shocks. Limiting straps. Hopefully will be swapping to a t400/241 combo. HAD drivelines front and rear. Full cage and spare tire holder on bed cage. Front fiberglass (might do the 88-98 upgrade kit from fiberglassunlimited which includes bith fenders and hood) If I do the upgrade kit I will do the newer style bed too all fiberglass w/ 3 inch bulge front and rear so I can get away with less lift. If not I will keep the 79 look and just find fenders and bedsides that are stock or maybe a slight bulge. Also fiberglass cowl hood. Let me know what you guys think. I am doing the radius arms instead of 4link b/c I dont want to 4 link. Please dont tell me too.
