The GMC for those that asked about it

Theres been a few ask about the GMC im building . Yep its done , Yep it wheels . It was over to the Dec 1st run but the grandson broke his arm and his parents were with us so we were not there long .

From the run



This is it for now , Front fenders will be recut and new paint in the spring . I lack a ventilated paint booth .

Makes me wish I still had my '88 S10 Blazer. Although I never knew where to find the lift kit.

seen you pull into OSTC and was hoping to get to see you wheel, but didn't. I was also hoping to get a look at your RF spindle but didn't get that either. And i understand why you didn't make a build thread for it as well. But if at all possible if you could shoot me a pic in a pm of that spindle that would be awesome.

Sorry to hear about the grandson. Hope it heals quickly

This 44 was under the Grand , the stearing is exactly the same including the pitman arm off the grand . Standard cross over stearing . All the joints are " true " one ton not the so called one ton that are for 1/2 ton GM trucks .

Stearing links are dom tube that i drilled and tapped . R side Upper stearing arm is from Koz off road . 95geo gave me the info on what size tube to use and so on .

Theres nothing trick or fancy about this truck , i do suspect it will be rock solid on the trial though .

Stock rear springs with addtional leaves added and custom spring perchs Ford 8.8

Front uses rear spring pack stock from a s 10 ext cab pickup , D 44 molly shafts innear and outer with yukon super joints . I put stock lock outs on as the weak point , there easy to change when you get stupid .

Stock motor 4.3L Vortech , trans 4L60E and stock t case 4:88 gears and 2 Det lockers .

WB pushed out from 107 to 111 " 36 x 11 x 15 TSL swampers

ha ha now its a build thread , a mod will have to move the thread

Well i have this photo but it dont show the stearing very well . Springs were pushed up pretty tight you notice . I didnt want them smacking every thing .

I was still testing here and hadnt fixed the doors yet :tonka:

Wow Marv, I'm impressed. For an "old" dude, you put these young guys to shame in getting stuff built and on the trail. I will miss seeing the Grand though. Not many of them left on the trails. I still miss mine.

yes, I have some interest in the front leaf spring set up, is there a reason the front mount is like a foot higher then the rear mount?

it typically shouldnt take long to build something if you already have allt he parts and you just putting it under another vehicle.

Looks sweet, but I think McLovin has poured more of his soul into his S-10.
