Nice truck. I'll be following this for sure. I'm building something similiar.
I showed pics of the crazyblaze to a buddy with a blue DD blazer and told him thats how he should build it. Sad to see it go.
I'm in a similiar boat. Sold my 82 K10 on 38s 6 years ago after the close wheeling stopped and friends all quit. I bought a 72 last summer. It was originally a 2wd 72 C10 longbed custom deluxe. I bought it with 44/60 350/350/203 3.73s. The PO bought it with 44/60 400sb/465/205 4.56s. Its a mess under the dash.
Definitely not pirate, but there's some info over here.
