I found a 77 chevy half ton with a 350/350 in it. it has 8+3 with cut outs and all spring lift. comes with 12 bolt and d44 with detriot in the rear and lsd in front with 4.56s in both. has 38 in thronbirds on 15x12 eaton beadlocks. now my question is should i buy this truck as a wheeler or do a 6=3 on my truck my daily driver. if i was to get the 77 i would put a set of 38in boggers on it and put a cam in it and run the axles till they blew. and in the end i would have the same amount of money in both of them. so witch rought do you guys think would be beter.

Sevenfold does have a point, but another thing is that if you wanna wheel, its not as much fun to wheel ur DD if its ur only transportation if something does break since you would be out of a vehicle. If you plan on wheelin fairly hard, get the 77. you said you would run the axles till they blew, so im sorta guessin you would play hard. Its fun to have a lifted DD too tho, and its would get more looks, but if you are like me, im usually pretty easy on my truck when i go off road since i don't wanna break my DD. You will have more fun wheeling the 77 if you get it, but if you lift your current truck, it will also be a fun DD. i still say get the 77 tho, but thats just me

personally.. i dont know....im a 73-87 fanatic, but i recently bought a 1979 that was lifted and its turned out to be a pretty big money pit.

When you lift a vehicle like that, you go abuse it. And buying a vehicle that has been abused and hasnt been built for it (12bolt & dana44) can result in a lot of uh ohs.

If its cheap get it, but if hes looking to get a lot of $ out of it you'd be better off finding a chevy some old guy has taken care of and lift it yourself.
