    IMO get the 6in, you will get sick of the 4incher too quick.

    alright to clear some things up
    1. right know I don't even own a body style truck like I want pics of
    2. if I do get one of these trucks it will be a DD and TOW PIG so that means it only gets enough lift to clear room out for a minor drive train swap, and the most aggressive tire it will have is a mud terrain. I already have a play toy

    With that said any more pics with 4" lift and 33s or 35s would be great.

    Here you are Chris.

    One of my teacher's semi-thrash wagon. '85 K30 454/400/208/60/14 4.56 36" Mili' Wranglers with 5" of lift (I lied).

    Same guy's '84 K30. 5.9/518/60/14 3.73 30" all terrains on 2" springs (whoops, I lied again) We still have yet to make the t-case adapter for a parttime converted np203. But, he is ready for this to hit the road so it is got to get the case and driveshafts soon.

    A friend of mine's trucks. His tow-mobile: '86 GMC K30 454/Clark 5speed/divorced Rockwell case/60/14 1100r16 PowerKings (~36" tall again on 4" of lift). I appologize for the horrible picture.

    His DD. '85 GMC K10 6.2/700r4/208/10/14sf ~3" of lift and 305s. Body-wise it is all origional.

    Another one of my teacher's. '77 GMC 305/350/203/44/14 4" lift and 37" Mili Wranglers. He bought it from the above gentleman without a motor/trans/case and had a 305/350/203 in his shop and put it in so he could drive it. We are building a fire breathing 496 as of now and Friday we were talking about the rest of the drivetrain and he said he was wanting a 465/205. Atleast the clutch pedal is still in the truck. Disregard my abortion of an alignment in the bottom picture.

    The first teacher that I talked about finished his dad's '84 shortbed last fall. That bitch is bad. Next time he drives it or I go to his house I'll snag a picture. It's on 33/1250r15 meats around 15x12 Mickey Classic II's. 350/465/205/10/12

    It's the Dodge radiator and factory intercooler on the GM core support. He made his own motor mounts and crossmember under the oil pan. There is plenty of clearance between the diff and pan, probably ~6-7" between the crossmember and diff; and that crossmember hangs low. I only have crappy pictures of the underhood area on my computer but I'll snag some more when we work on it later. He did have to notch the passenger frame rail for the AC compressor though, that is the only task keeping him from putting a 4BT in his '73 Blazer. That and the 40" Hawgs, we'd have to put it on the ground.

    Crappy pictures, none of which show you much.

    1st gen I believe. But I'm not sure. It was either a late 1st gen or an early 2nd gen. I'll ask him tomorrow.
