    Contrats. You can have a whole lot of fun with that truck. Do you have any specific plans for it yet? I'd love to find myself a truck like that with a short bed. That'd be a fun long term project/toy.

    it will probably be an offroader when i get the funds to lift it, it has alot of power and a 12 bolt rear end, which from my research is not too common on the half tons as most had ten bolt rear ends idk. My friends 78 blazer has a ten bolt

    both my 84 c10 and 86 k10 have 10 bolts. 12 bolts are great axles... my initial plans were for a 12 bolt rear in my k10.

    78 was the changeover year, 10 and 12 bold could be found in them that year, there were even a few 79 that the 12b was found in from the axles still laying around, same thing with the dana 44 front

    That looks like a good platform for a mud BEAST!!

    my thoughts exactly :) that will be the plan when i get the money to lift it and such, i am upgrading it to a 205 transfer case rather soonish when i get the funds the be the first thing as i do not like the 203 on it now
