To be honest, the body on that truck looks pretty good. I don't see much rust and only a few minor dents. I'm not sure if it would be worth doing a complete body swap. Totally up to you on what you...

You can't just swap the running gear. For one, the 4x4s use a leaf spring front suspension while the 2wds are coils, so you'll have to fabricate all the hangers, shackles, crossmembers, linkages,...

Yup, goes behind the headlight and wiper switch. There is usually a blue bulb cover that goes over it. Also, the metal clip should pop into the little plastic bracket behind the switches. Hopefully...

Thanks everyone. I just visited Chicago the other day and drove the truck around the city a bit. I was definitely turning some heads. I loved the way the exhaust sounded as it echoed off of the...

If you plan to use it mostly as a cruiser I would say go with the 4.10s. If you want it to be more of a fun toy, then I'd go with the 4.56s. It really depends on how you plan to use the truck.

Damn that thing is a beast. The C6 is a stout trans, I think it should be fine with the right converter. I love seeing people make these 400s scream and shut up all the haters. I built my 400 a...

That looks great! It looks better than a brand new factory paint-job. I was at harbor freight the other day looking at them. I'm glad to hear they worked well for you. That's probably what I'll do...

Since I'm done with school I decided to go visit some family in the Chicagoland area. So it was another little road trip for Big Red. 360 miles without even the slightest of problems. This big old...

That's what I was planning to do, thanks! I really want to get a nice buffer and see how much I can get the paint to shine.

As Shane already stated; no 79 would have a divorced transfercase. Other indications of a highboy would be the low front-most crossmember, ram assist steering, thick front leaf pack (I want to say...

I hear ya. I probably will have about $150 in materials when it's all said and done. Like I said in a previous post, this will ultimately be a temporary paint-job, so I'm not going to waste my time...
