Love of squarebody

So just signed up after finally getting my hands on a desired squarebody.

So I traded up a pair of times and ended up being able to claim ownership of this 77 GMC crew cab dually. Long ways away from ultimate goal, but don't believe I could have stumbled across a better starter to get my hands on.

As is, 2wd, 350/th350, big ten rear. Flat bed I need to sell and snag original. Better yet, start the brain storming on drop.

I roll oil field big rigs so I have a connection on getting hands on big 22.5s and that's the goal. Well here is the ol girl and look forward to anyone willing to share or offer suggestions. Last but not least the extra set of interior components, 4 full doors etc...

Re: Love of squarebody

I'll snag and post the interior tomorrow after work. Been super busy, between other house projects the ol lady is dedicating top of the to do list, I'm just stuck to researching and nickel and diming for parts when ready(allowed ��) to toss money at.

Researching 22.5 swap since I run crude here in Colorado and boss man will hook me up with spares if decide to. Debating static vs bags. Keep flatbed and tweaking to my liking or go original once stumble across one.

Welcome to the forum. Nice find on CL! I didn't figure it would last long. Nice quads are rare!

Nice truck, that truck lasted on CL longer that I thought it would. Welcome to the board I'm in Co too

That's why they call it a shortcut Kyle, if it was easy it would just be the way.
