    Cool Newbie, With 2 new projects from Missouri!!!

    Hey everyone, my name is Shane, but known around here as Fathead. I live in the country just outside of Osborn Missouri. Where I farm and have fun. I have been a Chevy guy for as long as I can remember. Currently I drive a 2001 Chevy 1500 ext cab stepside 4X4. I havent done much to it, just HID lights, high-low-fog. Tinted all the windows and eyebrow. I recently got 2 new toys that I will be needing much help with. The first one is a 1998 GMC 3500 single cab 4x4, with a 7.4 and an automatic. This one I have been working on for a week and its got me stumped. But looking to do alot of mods to it. Lift, wheels and tires, engine and tranny. Pretty much to make it one bad muddin mother, lol The second project I have is an 1987 Chevy 1 Ton duelly 4X4, with a 7.4 and a 4 speed flatbed. The engine is sitting on the stand in my shop, just waiting on me to tear into her. For this truck I am looking to make it one bad ass haulin machine. A truck I can use to pull my play truck to shows and while one is wining in mudd runs, this one is taking a ribbion home from the car show. But will still blow the doors off any gas burnin ford or dodge going down the highway, even with a trailer on, lol Yes I know, I have big dreams, but come big or stay home right? Well just wanted to say hello. Tomorrow I will start pickin your all's brains about my 1998 7.4 problems, till then Later.
