I have had the truck for 15 years. It was a 1 owner truck with only 125,000 miles on it. It was a 3/4 ton and I turned it into a 1/2 ton. Replaced the 6 cylinder 4 speed manual transmission with a 350 small block and made it into an automatic. Put a different rear end and transmission in. Replaced the bed in back, mirrors, upholstery, carpet, radio, windshield visors, bumpers, and grill. Took out the leaf springs and replaced with coils and shocks and relocated the fuel tank to back of bed of truck. Disc brakes were added. Didn’t know about LMC right away but when I did it made everything so much easier In fixing up the truck. You can build a truck from the ground up with their parts catalog!
