Re: post your 67-72 4x4

What do you have for lift to clear the 37's, I have 5.5 f and 5" back to clear 35's but are 14.5" wide. Really like your truck a lot, was wondering about your bumper, nice job on it, works perfectly with the body.

Re: post your 67-72 4x4

I see the big difference, the 6" isn't much different but the narrow rim and tire compared to my 12" wide rim and 14.5" tire is why I can't go taller, well happy with my 35's but think a narrower tire would be a bit more highway friendly.
Thanks.
Mudman.

How are the road manners with the 54" fronts? Are you running a sway bar? Awesome truck BTW!

Re: post your 67-72 4x4

Not sure how it is with the 54s as I just finished truck. I have king shocks on it with compression adjusters and a Currie anti rock sway bar on the rear of the truck. I may add a anti rock on the front if it is really soft but the compression adjusters on the king shocks should help. To add the Currie sway bar to the front is super tight because the cross over steering uses a 2 wd steering box which puts the pitman arm opposite of the 4wd box. I will have to cut the sway bar arms and add bends to clear.

That 72 K20 looks pretty solid, all nice except the black grill, cool daily driver.

Re: post your 67-72 4x4

Hey. It's been way too long since I posted anything on mine.

1969 GMC K1500 LBW
-- 350 (stock bore, 71 block, 4bolt), 305 53cc heads, Edelbrock 1406, Performer intake, FloTech headers, Comp Cams 4x4 Extreme cam, stock internals, 1" spacer, 2 1/4" dual exhaust with turbo mufflers, stock exits.
-- TH350 with a NP208 transfer case (came out of 85 truck, but wasn't original.lol)
-- 3.08 12 bolt front and rear (out of same 85 Chevy)
-- Non A/C, AM radio (never worked), originally was a red/orange 4spd truck built in Fremont, painted VW Reflux Silver Metallic in 2009, but faded within 2 years. Wanting to do some digging around to see the trucks history.
-- Was my very first vehicle in 2009 in Colorado, met my wife in 2013 with it, sat for 3 years after we moved to Florida, went back up to Colorado and drove it all the way back to Florida in 2017, has been our daily driver since. Lot of plans for it.

Here is my most recent picture of Silver
