    Here are a couple pics of my older trucks, I wish I still had them. The 2nd truck, light blue, is my 84 K20. I bought this before I could drive, lol. Did a ton of work to it. New fenders, floor pans, rockers, cab corners, wheel openings on bed, etc. Spent about 8 months total doing this. Mind you I was 15 at the time and had no help from anyone. This was my first try at redoing a truck.

    The 1st truck is my 82 K20. I put 6" skyjacker suspension lift, new exhaust (flowmaster) headers, cam, carburetor, and other goodies. I did this right and it was all spring lift, no blocks at all. It was stick shift, TM265 trans and NP205 tcase. Had the granny low in it and holy shyt alot of torque. I miss pissing off the neighborhood at 6:30 am with it going to work, lol. Was louder than crap and had a very nice, lopey idle to it.

    Sydenstricker didnt you have K20 plow truck that was lifted, I thought I saw one you had posted at one time with a 4" lift & western plow on it or am I thinking of a different truck?

    Those old SFA Chevy's were the last of the real trucks GM had built, someone should have told them that "if aint broke dont fix it".

    The 82 is the one you are thinking of. It had a Western on it, but no lift at the time. I sold the plow and put the 6" lift on it

    Yeah GM definitely screwed the pooch when 1988 came about and tossed the SFA for the IFS.
