i think what your doing is a great learning experience for a kid your age. just keep working on it and when the older experienced guys get on here and give you advice and direction just listen and learn from them.

"o shit its him again"


This build thread looks a little better. I hope you drilled the end of the crack before you welded it, or else it will probably crack again.

I was hoping he hadnt gotten then far so I could tell him. You should really grind those cracks back down. Drill them, weld hem again, and plate them.

Shit that you need to address:

1. The frame needs a steering box brace of some sort even if you guys welded up the cracks, they are going to show up again if you dont brace it up.

2. Get rid of the sway bar, its ugly, kills flex, makes the ride rougher, and eats up the bushings with a lift .

3. Your rear leaf packs are extremely heavy and stiff. If you want to haul heavy loads constantly then keep them, otherwise for off roading and regular street driving they are going to suck.

4. You should really go to cross over steering since you have the flat top d44 knuckle for it. If not ship the knuckle to me and ill ship you mine.

5. Why are you going through all this work to still reuse the crappy np 203?

Yeah we did and we plated the big one on the motor mount. Then welded a nice chunk of steel in there. I hope it wont do it again.

When I put the small block in it I will do one. Can I make one? Are they easy to make?
2. Get rid of the sway bar, its ugly, kills flex, makes the ride rougher, and eats up the bushings with a lift . Hmm i never thought of that maby I will, will it make it handle worse?

3. Your rear leaf packs are extremely heavy and stiff. If you want to haul heavy loads constantly then keep them, otherwise for off roading and regular street driving they are going to suck. Haaha I know there brutally big. I might just take some leafs out or I'll just leave them in till I get new 3 inch ark pair.

4. You should really go to cross over steering since you have the flat top d44 knuckle for it. If not ship the knuckle to me and ill ship you mine. I am going to do the cos in it i just need to get the money. And I have 5 knuckles for you, it's called a knuckle sandwich.

5. Why are you going through all this work to still reuse the crappy np 203?
. I'm using the 203 because it was in the truck when I got it, it's the only one I have, it dose have the 2wd kit in it tho, at least think it dose.

Double posting is bad form. What makes you think that you will get any slack by deliberately going against the norm by double posting. I'm guessing this one will catch more hell than the other, especially under the circumstances. If you don't like to be criticized about your build, well, that's tough. Some folks are going to disagree with this part or that.

If you don't like to be criticized for your spelling, grammar, punctuation, etc. That is easy. Go out of your way to do it right, and there is nothing to criticize.
. Sorry I forgot I'll do that right now.

so you took a stock rusty piece of shit and painted over all that rust and shitty stock crap with shitty black paint and did a shitty job at it , come on if you can do all this why cant you take apart everything , wire wheel it to get rid of the rust and then paint it right ? i do cheap shit but i dont halfass shit , sorry to flame but my biggest pet pieves is when shit gets done half ass. to me if i took all that time to pull a good lookin cab and clip like that from a junkyard and do all that work that i would have spent alot more time makin eveything else look good since the cab was already off???
truck looks good with the cab on tho ill give you that , i like stock rims and lift alot! , just think you should have took more time to do the frame right and do a suspension lift instead of body lift

The frame I did do right, I wire wheeled the whole thing then painted it during the summer I don't se what u mean about doing a shitty job. As for the lift it dose have a 3 inch suspenchin lift in it then the 3 inch body lift was so I could get the t case in since the cab was off a 2wd the trans tunnel is smaller. but i didn't rip the whole chassis right down bear because i have a date it needs to be done by. Working part time and going to school the other part its hard to get a lot of shit done.
Thanks I like the stock wheels to but I would like to find the chrome rally rings for them and paint the rims black. Maybe ill do that this week?

i just would have taken everything apart , suspension , axles , steering , cleaned everything and painted , put back together with new bushings , would have looked sweet imo but hey to each his own , i guess its not goin gto kill anyone being painted over rust unlike some of the whack jobs that come threw here cough cough flat billers with blazer on front blocks for "mock up" cough cough , sorry had somethin in my throat

but yeah i agree with the chrome rings on the rims , thatd look really good , my favorite look on a shortbed chevy is 4" lift , stock rims just like you have with the chrome rings on 33's

what are your plans for color? and any motor mods or just get it drivin?

and im not sure you needed the body lift tho? i put an 87c30 cab clip and tbi motor on a 77k10 frame with a th350/203 that i sold to abuddy of mine , he wheels it all the time with no body lift or transdrop , doesnt hit the floor at all , its really close tho . ryan aka ragan on here can vouch for that also ( he helped do the swap )

Loggers box or rock box. When they are all painted up they look rely nice.



^ That one looks pretty haggard though.

Loggers box gets my vote. They seem pretty functional and dent resistant

Just use paint to fix any other cracks you find in that frame.

http://www.offroaddesign.com They have lats of cool parts and upgrades for all the common chevy problems. Very good products also, check them out when you get a minute.

I vote flat bed with integrated roll bar/headache rack and stake pockets for removable sides if you should want to haul stuff.

You shouldn't have bought that cab....should have bought the whole truck
It's a 3/4 ton too

I would have opted with a rear shackle flip over the blocks.
