ID:	9960 I drove from las vegas, nevada to mesquite, nevada... about an hours drive... when I got there the previous owner had filled the the bed with a ton of extra parts..... spare engine, trans, doors,hood, and a bunch of other misc parts....
    My goal for this truck is mild....

    lower it around 3in in the front and 4in in the back
    get some basic 16" rims
    fix some front end slop
    mild engine work Cam,header/exhaust, and carb

    nothing major just a daily/ work truck...
    ive built a couple of other vehicles before so i have some experience just not really familiar with carburetors....

    Ok so when I got it,the previous owner said that the carb was dirty so it didnt want to stay running... so i looked into it... looked at the carb and it had a bunch of vaccum leaks in different areas... so i put new hoses and tried again.... same thing... so then i decided to buy a weber carb and swap it out... well when i took the carb off. the intake manifold was filled with coolant... i guess the gasket separating the coolant gallery and the #4 cylinder busted open and coolant was splooshing in... also im waiting on the weber adaptor plate so i can put it on... so now just cleaning and waiting

    I just swapped to 5 lug. My 6 lugs are for sale.
    The block kit is for the rear. It is 2 brand new blocks, brand new hardware, and my old U-bolts which are cut down to fit the mighty max. I had to get longer U-bolts for the 8.8 axle, so my old ones are in a brand new kit.

    You an swing by the shop and check it all out if you want.

    It's coming together nicely - the new rims look great. Doubt you'll find a pair of speakers like the factory items but you can try installing 4" dual cones in there with a rectangular surround plate to hold them in place (break out the tape measure and check if the recess is wide enough)
