I put a new carburetor on it, but that's about it. I focused all my work on the house this year and the other projects just kinda feel off the radar.

Well, not for long - my wife of 7 years left me 4 weeks ago today - so after I get my life straightened out a bit, I'll be using the truck as therapy.

Re: Starting my first build - 1966 C10

Checking in on your build... been watching from the beginning.
Your build gave me the inspiration to do a C4 suspended C10
Next time my wife and I are in your area.. (have lots of family in and around Howell having been born there)... I'd love to meet up and check out your truck..
We'll actually be driving my 66 Pontiac-ed GMC..

Let me know! Would love to meet you and have you come hang out!


So...

As for an update...

Truck is patiently waiting as I finish the one-year remodel of my master bath.

I have a couple of interesting (maybe stupid) mods coming up (besides the new engine / trans) I'll share soon!

Hi Scott, how do you like the wheels? I have a chance to pick a set up but worry they are to narrow and will spin to easy, I currently run 275 60 15 on a square with an LS swap. By the way, they look good on your truck.

I love them - but you have to remember I was running an open diff with around 300 HP...

I bought an extra set and plan to have them widened soon; I've just started building the 6L LS engine.
