Sure..... That would be cool. But buying all the new parts required would take away from the current truck project.

If only you have some extra dropped C10 parts

I’m with you. Stealing your wheel idea, too. Happy with your VN515s?

Thankfully, I have a big pile of pretty nice parts just laying around doing nothing. The monetary outlay should be negligible, but the time is what I really will miss.

Re: How to: Ruin a perfectly good C10

Don't let this one slip through the cracks now that you've got a blazer build going. I want to see this one finished! Not saying you won't finish it, I just know how a lot of us get when we get a new project. (myself included)

Yeah, we’ll see how quickly that one can get neutered. It’s using a separate budget, but potentially borrowing a few parts from the truck... I’ll try to keep them both moving, but the Blazer should be simple in comparison
