Re: Post pictures of your lifted 67-72's

Happy to do it! I'm hoping we can get some more love for the 4x4s around here.

Re: Post pictures of your lifted 67-72's

Thanks. I loved that truck. It came from Colorado, but was a Wyoming truck most of it's life. Back in the great recession I had to let it go. A friend has it now and it is being restored...slowly, to a very high standard. For me it was a survivor run everywhere truck I just enjoyed as is. I did all new steering, brakes, suspension, u-joints, bearings, tires, clutch so it drove really nice. It had a 400 SBC (with 400 badges) and a 4spd. That last picture was taken on Rt55 between Front Royal and Strasburg. The first was near my place and the middle was my driveway. The P.O. ragged it out, but the owner before did a great job on it. Although it had all original paint, it had a cab swap from a Cheyenne Super after a tree had fallen on it. I bought it in '04 the summer before becoming Special-K here. I had a member contact me who knew the guy who did that work. The Cheyenne Super was a big block C/20, so it had a high hump already. Under the tailgate band Chevrolet was done in blue letters, the way deluxe 2-tone Custom Deluxes were done. The seat was still in great shape.

Re: Post pictures of your lifted 67-72's

Cab doesn't have a high hump with a 4 inch and a little body lift. Had to finally mount some steps and at 64 I still have trouble getting in. Funny had a 93 Z28 and I had to roll out almost on the ground to get out. You just fall into them.

Re: Post pictures of your lifted 67-72's

Not mine saw at a calif car show for sale $30k. Talked to the seller, truck was from minnasota, Checking it out I could see rust bubling up under the paint at botton of doors, lift carpet and see patch lanels in floor, , could tell rocker were replaced. More rust cancer under cab areas. Had a older GM target replacement motor, Just all new bling parts, bupers, trim etc

Nice truck! Do you have anymore photos of your lift? I think this is the first truck of this body style I have seen with 54s up front.

Sounds like it's priced about right for a $15k truck. Wake-up call... she ain't worth what she used to be.

I love that truck. I want a winch on the front of my K2500. Might have to consider the longer springs, too.

Here are the wheels and tires I lifted the truck to be able to run... although the plan had been to raise a bit/bigger tires all along. 9.75" aluminum slots with 35/12.50 BFG A/Ts. I did have all new 6" Ez-rides, 16.5 x 8.25 powder coated steel wheels, and 37/12.50 Super Swamper SSRs, but decided to scale it back for future tire purchase considerations
