Re: 73-87 4x4s

Wow, new photobucket policy pretty much destroyed this thread...

I should've posted this one a little while back (sold it recently) - 76 K20 Silverado Camper Special w/Special Paint. Miss it already!

Re: 73-87 4x4s

figure i can do one post and be done with it, list of all the square bodies ive owned.

my very first 4x4, 1983 s10 blazer. i think around 1998 2.8 4x4 manual transmission



few months later i got this truck - 1984 gmc jimmy 305ci 6 inch lift 38 inch tires



after about 4 years that thing literally fell apart so i found this suburban in a local impound yard for $200, it was stock when i got it. 400ci 6 inch lift 38 inch tires



same fate, few years later after offroading it the body became so tweeked i had to let it go and found a old military blazer for cheap so had that for a few years - 6 inch suspension, 2 inch body, 400ci engine



around 2010 i had the itch to get a pick up truck for some reason so got rid of the blazer and found a k30 really cheap and still have it to this day. the plan was to make it the new off road truck but when i was done building it, it was way to nice to destroy. 4inch lift 400ci 33 12.50 all terrain tires.



here was the only square body i owned that never seen offroad. it was a daily driver for a while til i sold it for something with a little better gas mileage (what was i thinking) 350ci 4 inch lift 33 12.50 tires



was in decent shape except for the holy rockers which you can see in the picture... also on the trailer was a 85 s10, cut the fenders off and stuck 35s on it. actually got about 3 years of fun out of that thing surprisingly

Re: 73-87 4x4s

I got a few.
First is my D/D. 87 V20 burb. I got it in stock condition a few yrs ago. It has a 6.2 diesel with no turbo and a th400. I have put a 4" lift( no blocks), warn bumper, 14 bff swap, and a whole lot of maintenance. It often takes my family on 1000 to 2500mile round trips to variuos 4x4 events. I average 18mpg in this pig. We often take backcountry roads that are off the beaten path. I love it.

Re: 73-87 4x4s

Next is my family wheeler. It originally was a 78 K20 Burb. Factory 305/sm465/np205 truck with no options, not even a radio. It had 3.73 geared 10bolt/14bff. It is in the middle of a complete make over. It was bone stock truck. Skinny tires, sagging suspension, it was a perfect start.

Over the yrs it has had 3 motor swaps. I have gone from stock lift, to a 2" and a 4" . I had swapped in 4.10 ratio 60/14 but since then gone to a 4.56 set with lockers f/r, 35 spline outers, Yukon hubs, 1410 rear yoke, HAD driveshafts. I have crossover steering, twin stick 205, tubular cross-members, inboarded rear shocks, greaseable bushings, 4wh disc's.

It's been a long run road and I can't wait for the 3dr body swap to be complete so I can start the next phase. 3dr on 43"...

Re: 73-87 4x4s

The body pretty much rotted away. Floors, rockers, a/b pillars, rear pillars, and roof all had for from living on the coast. When I got it in 2010, it had none.


I collected 2donor trucks for the swap.
I am going to miss my square bodied burb, but the dream is coming true. Slowly.

Re: 73-87 4x4s

I am going to start tinkering on this soon. It needs a ton of work. It was a factory 454tbi/sm465/np205 truck. Hard to find these trucks. 87 K30. It has a carb 350 now. She needs window regs, clutch, brakes, tre's, wiring repairs, and a 4" -6" lift.

Re: 73-87 4x4s

My good friend has a few too. He has a 88v20 burb. Tbi350/sm465/np208 (factory equipt) with some over sized tires and a swing out tire carrier.

He also has a 89 GMC V2500 that we just swapped a hydro 465/208 into. No lift, just like his other one.
