Wow, your truck is bad a$$! I love it. I really think I may go the same route as you as far as paint goes. Is that the factory medium red or what ever they call it? Nice work on your LS swap, very clean. Hats off to you.

With the help of a friend we got the wiring sorted out. Something I was not too familiar with when we started. It was kind of fun. I enjoy doing that kind of stuff.

Re: 72 C10 Long Bed to Shorty LS Swap

Truck got all new suspension rebuild last weekend. New Moog upper and lower ball joints, tie rods, new bushings, 2.5" ECE drop spindles, new coil springs, 4" drop ECE leaf springs. Truck drives like new again. It's nice having tight steering again. Just need to get it aligned and should be good.

Re: 72 C10 Long Bed to Shorty LS Swap

Stance looks great. I rebuilt my front suspension and was kinda disappointed with the ride...only to find out the steering box was shot. Replaced it with a new unit along with a hydroboost and it's a completely new truck.

Any pics of the tank installed, and that custom sump? Keep up with the great progress.

Actually there the rear seats out of a ford 2006 ish truck. There a little thinner then the chevy seats for better leg room. So far seem to be working pretty good.

Thanks my friend. They do look good! Do you still have the fold up feature? That would be nice to have when wiring crap under the seat...

Yep, both the driver and passenger fold up. That is a nice feature. Hows your truck coming along. Just looked at some of your threads. That Gen V swap looks awesome. Truck is gonna cruise

Re: 72 C10 Long Bed to Shorty LS Swap

Looks like you used the Brothers frame shortening kit? Likely ordering that for myself in a few days. Pretty easy job for the most part?

Yeah I used the Brothers Trucks kit. Really wasn't hard at all. Had a friend help me. Easier with two people sliding and aligning everything together. Had it done in about 4-5 hours. Make sure you have an air chisel, makes getting old rivets for bed supports easy to remove and relocate. The only thing out of that kit that didn't work, was the shorter brake line for the rear that they supplied. I ended up just cutting my existing and re-flaring it. Good luck.

Thanks Snake72. Fishing and hunting is pretty awesome here! My bro-in-law used to live in Iowa, we used to go down there quite a bit.
