... figured I'd start here w/ my first post. This is my 71 K20 I've been working on for the past 11 months. I towed it from Ohio, but a new cab and bed on it, lift and working on getting a detroit from a guy in Washington State. Before:
New bed (came from the same truck as the cab):
Threw on some 35" hawgs and here's the temp front sheetmetal:
Where it's at today:
I got some 4" lift rear springs coming as well as the 4.56 geared, detroit locked center section. Has the eaton rear.

I plan on painting it this spring. I was getting ready to start another project but decided to finish this one first. I still have a long stepside bed in my garage in a million pieces, going to put that on my GMC. Got my eye on a 1970 C50 though, be cool to have a medium duty truck!
PaulC, whats that under the carport in your avatar?

That is just my M715 with a J-10 cab. Few specs Front Dana RC 60 4.88 power lock, rear Dana 70 4.88 detroit, 350, SM 465, 203/205 doubler, sprung over front, shackle flip in rear. If you go to What we hope to drive on the main page you'll see it.
Your brother-in-law pick up those rims yet? It was good meeting you and your wife. Hope to make some more progress the detroit from WA St fell through but got a line on another in Iowa. Did get my 4" rear springs though.
I bought a 4" all spring lift(used) for my Chevy, only going to put the rear springs on though as the fronts are the same as what I all ready have: rough country They live up to their name. Did you sell your 3/4 ton axles yet?
