Omg, I want to hump it.... that dash is just sweet. Needs a SFA swap though. Makes me want to do the same to my 97, but I'd have nothing to drive in the interim. Really my 97s drivetrain in an older truck is all I would have to do, mines only 2wd. Boy thats a dangerous though, yeah screw it throw away the body and frame and all I paid 5k for, i just wanted the motor and trans.

i agree with changing the ifs though. only other thing i would change is if i was spending that kind of $ on it i would have put a duramax and a 6 speed in it. that being said its still <font color="blue"> AWSOME </font>

no one likes the IFS but what if hes a street only guy and never uses 4wd? i didnt read the post, but loved the pics, but IFS is smoother on streets than SFA isnt it?

I love it, but I agree it needs IFS removed. That Ricks Truck Parts looks like they do nice stuff. My only experience with them is taking pictures with the hot chicks he has in his booth at Super Chevy (wife let me)/forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

holy wow, i need to change my pants /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif

i doubt that thing will ever see dirt with paint like that, so the IFS makes sense - better pavement ride. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

It looks like a daily driver type truck so I might not put a SFA on it if its not being wheeled alot. My 2001 silverado rode great on the street and was alright offroad, compared to my blazer it was a cadilac...

My thoughts exactly.

I would drive it if it wasn't IFS.

I could never own a vehicle like that cuz on account I would go broke from gasoline bills. IFS INCLUDED as I highly doubt I would ever let that thing touch any dirt hardier than a road construction zone.
That's some pretty fantastic work there.

Good luck to y'all in the future.
