    I got the truckabout 6 months ago. I paid $1,000.00 for it with a broken flywheel and a badtransmission. The mud and oil covered 350 was pulled out and went on a motorstand. I then pulled the transmission and transfer case out to have it built.The inner fender were removed and replaced do to rust I cleaned painted theengine bay also replaced motor mounts. The turbo 350 transmission received allnew hard parts and a B&m shift kit with 3000rpm stall. The transfer casegot new oil and seals. As for the motor it started as a bar block bored to4.030. I had the crank rods and pistons balanced. The top end is Edelbrock rpmperformer aluminum heads. I dropped in a cam solid lifters and full rollerrockers victor jr intake and a 750 carb. I have 456 gears for the front and rear axles I also have a locker forthe rear and will be getting a spool for the front.

    Wow, it sounds like you've been a little busy. Got lots of good stuff going on. 450hp is quite a bit...I'm sure you'll be having a ton of fun with it soon :glasses:
