Thanks, 96twodoor! I like yours, too! I'm fairly new to the West LA area... are there any good parts around?

The front is dropped with Western Chassis 2.5 Spindles and 2.5 Springs.
The back has a flip kit and 2 inch shackles.

Re: 1987 swb

First Off, Thank you for your Service!!! And I love the truck!! Could be, because I have one just like it, and 86. I had that hood also, but I'm working on going back to the original. Just waiting on getting it in for paint.
And those wheels are sweet!! I got to get me some new wheels sometime, hate the ones on my truck.

Thank you for the kind words. Yours looks sweet as well! I bought mine this way, it even came from Ohio originally. BigArmZZ, who is a member on this board, built it. We apparently have the same taste when it comes to these trucks, because I love everything he does to them.

I have to buy my cars prebuilt so to speak because I am always gone it seems like. I'm retiring in two years, though. The truck will start getting restored at that point. I'm going to start a build thread when I begin.

Re: 1987 swb

Drove the truck 2,700 miles from western NC to Tacoma, WA over 5 days. The truck did not miss a beat!

Your truck is so pretty! What color is it? I am about to have my 81 Silverado C20 painted. The color of your truck is exactly what I have been looking for.

LadyTrucker, you can send a personal message directly to 96twodoor. Just click on their name and that option will come up. That way you can leave squaredaway's thread uninterrupted and 96twodoor will be notified of your message next time they sign in.

Welcome to the forum and good luck with your truck!

Re: 1987 swb

squaredaway, welcome to the great state of Washington! I'd like to see that truck in person. I should have one of my squares reanimated pretty soon and maybe we can meet up at a show somewhere between Tacoma and Seattle.

Also, thank you for your service. I hate that we still have so many people in harm's way, but it's a blessing knowing that there are good people out at these places.
