Yes I know it has a gmc grill po installed that from a collision repair. I kinda like it, gonna leave it. Currently the truck runs and drives so the mods will be over time, one at a time so the truck isn't down huge amounts of time.

I was born in 1971 and have been looking for a 71 burb for a while. Found a 71 pu initially but now found this burb I'm really excited about the build. I am an ase master certified GM tech. I am retired now and just play with my toys in my private machine shop.

Plan on putting late model burb seats in it that I already have too. Paint will be themed like a 71 cheyenne super pu, white roof, med blue, white stripe down side then med blue at bottom again.

It's going to be an interesting build. That's a nice parts truck. Do you plan to use it's longer springs? You might need a lift as the "K" - LS conversions I've seen leave little front axle-to- oil pan clearance. You might consider cross over steering as these 4x4's can have some bump steer.

Not using the lift from the truck. Using hydraulic assist steering. The ls3 crate motor has a corvette low profile oil pan so clearance won't be an issue like on a ls truck pan.

Looks like a great project/starting point. Any idea what the seats that are in in now are out of? I'm interested in how the late model burb seats will fit too.

Is it me or is the roof raised up?

The seats appear to be '93 Suburban seats. i was going to ask about the roof also. I thought it just might be an illusion.
