Big truck is sitting in a snow bank currently. I've been super busy at work, but I'm hoping it settles down after the new year so much can get some work done. Keep rallying on yours!

Nice, how is it coming?


After a little hiatus, I'm ready for my summer K10 Project.

Vintage Air A/C system, ordered today with LS Brackets, hopefully it's a somewhat smooth installation, but either way it will be fun and I will video the complete install

I'll have to watch those, looking at getting Vintage Air for my C10 at some point.

Re: 84 K10 Custom Deluxe 5.3 build

More progress, however since I am currently using the 81 K5 core support, it was not going to work. Which made a good opportunity to highlight the 98 Windstar fan install on the 84 K10 core support.

Re: 84 K10 Custom Deluxe 5.3 build

Got side tracked from the A/C install while I had the core support and front bumper off. Figured I might as well install a front receiver hitch, using the Reese 37042 that came with the truck when I bought it. I only had to modify it slightly, so it was free other than the few cents in welding wire and time

Re: 84 K10 Custom Deluxe 5.3 build

I am always disappointed when I spend a week or two in Vegas and I dont see this thing on the streets. You must be in Summerlin/ North Town area and never make it down to the SE much.

Nice job on the truck, good to see guys hitting the sand in their stuff

Re: 84 K10 Custom Deluxe 5.3 build

I'm in NorthWest Vegas and I don't drive it much.

Thanks! Sand is great, and with my anti-theft patina people trip out when I'm scaling dunes! I can't wait to swap in the TH400 so I can squeeze a 200 shot and blast up comp hill

Re: 84 K10 Custom Deluxe 5.3 build

I miss the patina most of vehicles down there. Up here its just rust holes the size of a small compact car


Mine is from Cali and has the typical late 80's flaking paint, but i suspect an older gentlemen owned it cause it looks like it was garaged most of its life

What sand dunes do head to? Is there some out side of town on the 95 by you or do you head out to APEX north of the racetrack?

I noticed you spend some time on the river, up or down stream of the dam?

It seems like everyone here drives a new car. I like Apex Dunes and Amargosa for day trips, I want to do Pismo again soon(before they close it!) For the river when I go it's down by the Nelson area.

Made more progress this weekend, removed the side trim and installed weatherpack connectors to my 4x4 lights.

Thanks, I appreciate it!

More work, this time body work....ehhh I hate body work! I want it all one color so I'm going to rattle can it for now. I can't justify a quality paint job unless I do a frame off, which won't be for a few years. This should hold me over.
