Default My '86 Chevy Extra Short Box

This truck started out as a '81 Blazer, but the body was too far gone, so a friend gave me an '86 Chevy short box body, So I shortened the box 11 1/2" and installed it on the Blazer frame. I also added a '91 Blazer front clip. It has a 468 BBC, TH350, NP241, Dana 60 Front & Corp 14 Bolt FF w/spool & disc brakes, both with 4:56 gears... and 44" Boggers.

that thing looks cool like that.. sounds like a nice driveline as well.. a well built 468 has to turn those 44's nicely!

Do you have pictures from the side? It's hard to tell how short is it from the angled pictures.

Do you have this out on the road at all or does it sit outside ?

I'm pretty sure my father in law was telling me about seeing this today.
