Chevy 1 ton build

Alright guys this is a bolt on build so dont get to excited. This truck was my grandpas and was given to me when I graduated high school. Anyways I wanted just a nice lookin 4x4 that I could take to either a mud bog or play day once in awhile, not something to bash through the woods. Anyways here she is. Started with a 85 gmc 2wd 305 th530 1/2 ton. Then I came across a 78 3/4 ton 4wd corp front, 14 ff rear, 208, 700r4, with a big block. bought it for 700 bucks and drove it home. Then I set my 85 body on the 3/4 ton chassis. Then from there just kinda threw shit on when I had time. 6" lift springs, dana 60 front, 4.10 gears, preformer air gap intake, holley 750 dp, mallory hei, headers. guages etc. tires are 37x12.50 swampers. I also have a set of 38.5x11.00 boggers to play with. Still have lots of loose ends to tie up but overall im really happy with it. Prolly gonna order cross over setup tonight and some other goodies.


and now

Nice looking truck- a bit too much backspacing on those wheels, though, IMO.
