Re: just scored this 87 c10 long bed

rear bumper mocked up and ready for cut and weld up .

also got the tranny & t-case combo mocked up and waiting for my custom made 1" spacer to be made so i can bolt it all up with no mods / tear down of trans / cutting of shaft .

then brown santa delivered my gooseneck hitch to the shop today . she tips the scale at 70+ lbs . super beefy and made just for our style of trucks and bolt in a lot more than the competitors models do . acts as a extra crossmember in the frame also .

Re: just scored this 87 c10 long bed

kirt who owns www.diy4x.com

i have 2 of them now my self . and a few other members over on ck5 have them also .

pics dont do these justice . kirt goes overboard in a good way with BEEFY parts .

and its a non listed part . so you have to ask for them .

Re: just scored this 87 c10 long bed

got a lot done today on the rear bumper .

i LOVE my plasma cutter .

and just need ends capped / weld in hitch & D-rings / drill few holes for the bottom to bolt to the top half / then mount the angle iron for the main brackets.

Re: just scored this 87 c10 long bed

well another problem solved tonight .

went and picked up my custom made spacer to mate the trans and t-case together with out and major modifications . and if i ever want to go back its just unbolt the spacer and bolt the other t-case back on .

Re: just scored this 87 c10 long bed

Very nice on the bumper making. I've gotten quite a bit of stuff from Kurt. What does he charge for the GN hitches?

Re: just scored this 87 c10 long bed

thanks on the bumper . i was going for a late 60's threw 70's aftermarket beefy bumper kind of look . its my twist on a few bumpers and hitch all in 1 .

just a hair under 300 for this to my door.

the other name brand wants over 500 for a lesser product .
