Just a fun truck. Daily it for the most part and hit the trails on the weekends.

Hey everyone.

Got another build going. I was waiting until I was mostly done with this one before I started a build thread on it. I'm notorious for picking up trucks and messing around with them for a little while then getting rid of them.

I picked up a '79 K20 on July 4th. Saw it pop up for $700 on Facebook Marketplace. I left with the truck for $540 and drove it home from Aurora, CO to Colorado Springs, CO without issue.

It has a 350/SM465/NP205, D44/14BFF.

I've put at least 500 miles on it in the past month and the only issue I've had is a little coolant leak from what I think is the lower rad hose, looks like it's too big and the 465 has a nice little leak.

Here are a few pics from the ad that was posted.

I've got a boatload of pics... I think I've taken close to 700 throughout the course of the past two weeks since i started putting everything together.

I don't think any of what I've done is new to anyone but I will upload some of the build pics.

Might be basic up grades but still helps some of us a lot. Been following this since you got it so there is a little sentiment here. So I hope you hang on to this one?

I'll try to get some of the pics up here soon. Anything specific?

And this one should be sticking around for a bit!
