Default 72 GMC Street Truck

Back in June of this year I sold my Jeep and decided to build a street vehicle.

I purchased a 72 gmc with a 250 inline and a 3 speed manual on the column. Arkansas truck, all original with only 53000 miles.

I dropped a 5.3 and 4l60e in it.

I lowered it a few inches put on some new wheels added PS and PB new seat and it's now pretty much done.

I'm now thinking about building another off road toy, so you might be hearing more from me again.

Perfection at it's finest.

You can always build another XJ.

Now you know where you goofed with that one so the next one can be better. With your height, a two door would be perfect.

What wheels are those? Are they the cast aluminum from Jegs and Summit?
