Well some of yall on here have met me and not known it but I normally just browse and provide tips here and there. I've got an 87' K5 jimmy that has been sitting for 4 years and since I recently became unemployed I have finally started to work on it. So far I've swapped in a 14 bolt SF rear, installed 4.10 gears to match the rear, 8 lug outers on the front, stripped inteior, patched the cancer in the bed, herculined the body tub, primmered the exterior, mounted the 33x12.50s on 15x8 8lug wheels, and still looking for a trans. And now here are the pictures:

started out like this

So in went this:

and on went these:

and before all that I did this:

and I had to fix this:

And so in a nutshell, I'm trying to find a trans and t-case, trans x-member( prob will build one), massage floor to clock the t-case flatter, driveshafts, and and air cleaner till its back on the road. Things I would like to do is convert it to x-over steering, a 4inch lift, and bigger tires. But, none of the above is in my budget.
