It's got all the goodies
454 Turbo 400 205 Dana 60 14BFF woohoo Swampers lift yada yada.
That is all
soon very soon
nice . Is that the one that was on sale on here?
Yeah TBI 454 with Edelbrock intake and Comp Cam. Turbo 400 205 all stock running gear pretty much. Loaded interior new SSR's on Welds. Paint could use some work, but overall awesome pickup. I love it.
My collection of Chevy's is growing nicely
so is that going to be your towrig for your k5?
Looks good! Any future mods or changes planned for it?
looks good with the baby swampers, but IF you do plan on towing your blazer or anything over about 4500lbs make sure those are the E rated SSR's... you might want to look into a second set of tires for towing. thos will eat up fast.
Damn you I wanted that truck.
Yeah I plan on towing the K5 with it. I know that will be hard on the Swampers. I haven't looked at the load rating. They are 16.5's. I want to replace them with something nice, but I really really like the wheels but they are 12" wide so finding a decent street tire to fit them will prolly be hard and $$$.
I plan on maybe lowering the lift to 4" instead of 6 just for stability. There may be some axle swapping going on too sice I have a 10b in the front of the K5 Other than that I would like to change the interior color and paint it, but it works for now
Thanks for all the compliments
Welcome to the club! Could you take some pictures of your trucks engine. I am planning on putting a TBI Big Block in mine, and I want to see what the accessory brackets look like on a BB.
once you go crew cab its hard to go back.
Yeah I can get some engine pics. The brackets are wierd. I am not sure if they are stock or not. There is a serpentine setup, and two v-belts as well. My 89 350 has just a serpentine
You can take your time. I am in no hurry. Mine is a small block with a V-belt on the P/S pump, V-belt on the A/C, and a 4-Rib belt on the Alt.
Damit , just when I think I'm going to just yank my built 454/t400 out of my 1 ton 2wd crewcab and punt the rest of the truck BOTH of you guy's post up your WHITE crewcabs (just like mine) with a lift and nice wheels/tires . I have most of the stuff to convert over to 4wd and my 84 has NO rust as it came from yuma , Az . I thought I could sell the truck minus the motor&tranny for $1000-1500 . You guy's are making this really hard for me to do . I think you will be fine towing with a 6 inch lift . those crewcab's are pretty long and stable . I will think more aboot this delima . I bet I will regret it as soon as I do it . here's mine
dude!! you just bought my dream truck but i dont like the long bed its too hard to park lol did they make them in a short bed version?
no, they didnt
