Budget Cummins Squarebody Build

This will be my second diesel swap, the first a 68 K20 Duramax. At the time I put the 68 together, I was in a hurry because I had sold my only 4x4 truck and I needed something to work out of. I threw the 68 together pretty quick and a lot of things never got finished to my liking. I decided recently I wanted to take it apart and build it back better without the rush. So I decided to build this truck to drive while the Duramax is under the knife. The truck started life as a 86 2wd dully with a 4x4 and th400. My buddy bought the truck for the engine, sold the trans and bed, then I bought what was left. The original plan was to convert it to a single rear wheel 4x4 and cut it down to a short bed. I was going to drop in a small block, th350, and 205.
