Default 78 K5 mud truck

Friend of mine has lost interest in his project, and asked me to post it up.

1978 Blazer

350 motor appears to be stock except for headers.
Turbo 350 trans, works in reverse barely moves truck in drive gears.
203 transfercase
6 lug axles I believe 12 bolt rear and either 10bolt or 44 front. Warn lockouts on the front and disc brakes. He's unsure of gearing or if either has a locker.
44" Gumbo Mudders all hold air and have some tread
Body is pretty rusted
All glass is good and hardtop is good
Rims are steel and 12-15"wide

Maybe a little body lift I really didn't look close, I was to enthralled with the suspension.

Suspension lift consists of maybe lift springs not 100% sure. With blocks and a extra set half set of leafs(complete pack cut in half) on both front and rear axles.

The suspension is hard to explain so I'll try to get some pics ASAP.

Best I can describe it is on top of axle is a block, on top of block is 4-5 leafs cut in half, on top of that the full length leaf spring pack. The half pack of springs on the front goes out towards the front of the truck where theres a extra shackle that holds the half pack to the full pack, with a bolt above and below the full pack. I'm figuring this is suppose to act like a anti wrap? Rear is set up the same way.

He'd like $900 but is open to offers. PLEASE CALL HIM DIRECTLY if interested.

His name is Chad and his # is 269-214-1919

He's located in Bloomingdale Mi which is about 20 miles NW of Kalamazoo.

Truthfully your best bet is to come look at it if your interested, he's not the brightest and probably doesn't know as much about it as I posted here.
