Also, some states are particular about the partial VIN stamp on the frame matching the body and title.

For the rear, I went with a later model 2004 GMC 2500 with disc brakes and a drum in hat emergency brake. Nice to have 4 wheel disc brakes...

Re: 2wd to 4wd.....just curious

Thanks for the info guys....lots to consider. At the moment, its a 3/4 ton C20 with a built 6.0L LS and STG II 4L65E. The rear is the factory Dana 60 and I've already converted to 4 wheels disc brakes....although I do not yet have a parking brake solution.

Re: 2wd to 4wd.....just curious

Was it a factory big block truck? Interesting that it is Dana 60 as most small block coil trucks were HO52.

One of the reason I like sticking with the drums. I have an '86 Sub rear in my Jimmy, 8 lug semi-float with the 13" drums. Parking brake works GREAT!

Yes, it was a factory C20 with the 402 big block and trailing arms with coil springs in the rear. It does have the "helper" leaf springs for towing.
