    Come on B&B! We need those pics of your truck. This is my favorite body style and truck of all time. If I could, I'd have ten of these trucks.

    This was the old Christmas Tree, Don't ask why it was called that!...lol She was a 76' but same s***t...lol. Short box, 14 Bolt rear, 4.10 gears, 4 speed granny low tranny, Np205 t-case, worked 350 engine, dual 3" exhaust with Flowmasters. 7" of total lift sittin' on 35" Boggers. I had to be berry berry careful driving the Boggers on the street in the snow! But they had good pushing traction. The plow was an 8' Meyer C-Series with a modified a-frame to work with the lifted truck.

    I bet once those boggers got a good grip she pushed pretty good.

    Did it start out as a rc/sb 1500? What motor/trans/axles, etc did you swap in?

    Yes, RC/SB1500. used the 350 EFI and the tranny that was in it with a tranny cooler that had an electric fan. The rear axle was a dually Dana 60 from a motor home. Custom dual shock brackets in the rear..I think I have a picture of those. The front, I located all the parts for the IFS 3500 dually mainly new from the GM dealer with 3500 knuckles from a junkyard. It was an expensive conversion. I had to relocate the lower ball joints on the a-arms to make the geometry correct. PITA !
