Doesn't look much different but a few things have been done. It sat in the garage for a lonnnng time but the ol’ truck finally got some work done on it.
  • 6 to 5 lug swap
  • Front Disc Brakes with a Booster
  • Power Steering
  • 15"x6" Steel Wheels
  • New Tires
  • Dealer Stamped Rear Bumper Added
  • Few Other Misc Things

Looks good. Maybe I will see you out driving it around town.

My blue 68 GMC has been driving around Katy everyday for more than 3 years.
My son and i did most of the same upgrades to it (PS, PB, AC etc) and now just get to enjoy it.

Hey, that's awesome. Was hoping you'd go with steel wheels!

Re: Project O.G. - My First Ever Build

Thanks guys.

I've been enjoying driving it around a bit. Still have some things to get figured out. Horn doesn't work, put a new (in cab) gas tank and sending unit in and the cab smells like gas. Wonder if I should have just had the original tank hot tanked and sealed. Also, needs a bit of exhaust work.

Hey Leevon, yeah, I finally decided on a direction for the truck. Originally I was planning a 4" & 6" drop and maybe some classic mags like slots or daisies. As time went by I started to notice that stock looking trucks are becoming much rarer than modded ones and I really just started to enjoy seeing those stock trucks. So, I decided to go with a stock look. I would have liked to keep it six lug but I had already purchased 5 lug conversion axles for the rear and it was nearly impossible to find a set of 15x6 6-lug steelies that would clear disc brakes. I have 3 sets of caps, white dog dish, stainless dog dish and full wheel covers, but I haven't tried any of them yet.

Also, if I had it to do over again, I would have painted the wheels instead of having them powder coated.
