Re: what pre 1974 truck should i get for a bogger?
A 1/2 ton or a 3/4 ton is a good platform to start out with. about 4 or 5 months ago i bought my first 4x4, for $750, a 1983 GMC Half TOn diesel. granted, ive spent alot on fixing it up(still in the process) but the way i figure it, when i bust somethin up, i wont have to take it to the shop. And you dont have to jump right to 38s. I think RJ only has 36s or something like that on his truck. and another little hint. My GMC has heavy duty emissions or something like that, so i could prolly drop in a 454, with out much question. of course, inspections dont happen around here, so a 502 RAT is possible, but im 17, and cash is really tight. so the diesel is stayin there till i at least get a 14FF out back, and a D44 up front. Actually until im out of college and have another truck for a FarM work truck(prolly like a 95 or so 3/4 ton. Im stickin to a 2 inch lift, and tires no larger then 33s. and more then likely a locker out back in the 10 bolt. A good place to find old trucks cheap is AutoTrader, im looking at one right now 1974 Chevy 3/4 ton 4x4, 350 motor / 350 tranny, little rust, runs good. $1500 right there is a good platform. its in Des Moines Iowa, if ya want the number ill keep the mag around for ya.
