Re: should i do this or not?
wow, you guys have really jumped on the bandwagon.
i really want a manual, and a manual truck that old would come with a 205 case wouldn't it?? i don't want a 208!
how would drilling new sprring stuff let me put on bigger tires? wouldn't i need a more arched spring? oh you mean and inch or so IN. but i'd have to physically bend the springs to fit. i'm prolly not strong enough to do that. i'd just do the used 4inch spring /shackle flip thing that the other guy mentioned.
also, 44" boggers?!?!? what are you thinking, i totally love to have those tires, but they are big coin! i know a guy with 44" swamper tsl's and he said his were $700 each (i'm in canada). so i'm not buying those, way to expensive. now if i can get used tractor tires or something off a backhoe or something, then i would do that, but that option is way to expensive. i'm only 18 with a (albeit well-paying) summer job. i gotta save money for later on in life. i can't sink too much money into this now cause i'll need the money for other stuff later on down the road, for non-truck things.
i'll take off the rear box but i'd rather not remove the front fenders, i'll trim em some. but i still want this to look like a chevy. if i take those off then all i've got is cab, hood, grill.
also about huge tires. yes please, but then i'd have to put in lower gears. i'm not one of those stupid rednecks that doesn't understand about lower gearing and mechanical advantage. it would be cool, but then i'd have to get a dana 60 at least, and i'f i'm going over 44" i'd have to start looking for dana 70 or rockwells, i don't have the dollars for it. again, your comments and suggestions are totally appreciated but it has to be dirt cheap stuff.
i want my truck to be cool, and by cool i mean totally sweet.
