This truck belongs to a buddy of mine. And this pic does it no justice. The paint receives awards at many shows.

LOL. I bought the truck when I was 16 and me and my dad re-painted it and did a ton of work on it so most of it is done and just needs cleaned up and painted. the body lift will be coming off and a new 4" lift will be going on and still ride on the 35's. I absolutely HATE the body lift!

I am waiting for us to put a new building up at our shop so I have room to work on it. I will have my own garage just for storing this truck and whatever classic cars and truck I happen to get in the future. I will also have my own spot to work on my vehicles outside of the "museum" lol so no dust or dirt gets in the "museum". The "museum" will also be heated and have a de-humidifier. My uncle will get his own "museum" and work area on the other side of the building for his stuff and then there will be an office in that building for our steel fab shop as well. It is going to be an AWESOME building and I can't wait to get it done. We are going to start on it this winter and hopefully have it done by next spring. I can't wait for it!!!

Best part is this building will be AIR CONDITIONED by a big industrial unit I picked up for free. I actually got two units when they told me to go get one. I figured since I had the big flatbed truck and I could fit the other one on I might as well take it. LOL

I have a 4.5/6 drop, Dakota digital gauges, energy bushings, and a 6.0L with all the stuff needed for the swap in the garage. They are supposed to be for my 78 stepside, but I have been throwing around the idea of putting it into this one to make it a fun daily and allow me to go wild on the 78. I'm just thinking out loud now.

Sounds awesome dude, and I didn't even notice it was a body lift from the pic, but hell yeah get rid of it lol! You got a jewel though bro. I'm also thinking about getting a garage some years down the line (if i end up making good money lol..). I'm gonna keep my '94 Z71 and thinking about adding an 83-87 K10 and a newer 4 door chevy.. too bad it's expensive as hell!

Re: How about some pics of '73-'87 Short Beds Part II

I have since replaced the dim looking headlight, I worked a year on the truck and could not remember to replace it. It still worked, but looked bad...

Re: How about some pics of '73-'87 Short Beds Part II

Thanks...20x10 rear and 20x8.5 front. I cant remember the tire size off hand, the rear are as wide as could possibly fit though. The front is going down one more inch in the next week, I just picked up some 2" drop springs today..will give me 5/5 drop...

Re: How about some pics of '73-'87 Short Beds Part II

I like those vette rallys, I still have my stock rallys. I plan to change them out from time to time.
