Default Current 1:1 project 1986 GMC

Picked this up a little while ago and been tinkering on it since. Just got the interior almost done.

The day I brought it home:

Just got done installing 2" spacers for the back to make the track width the same front to rear.

More to come.

Awesome. I love my square bodies. Having a blast driving my 82 shortbed 4x4 daily thatís a California truck. Where did you get an actual dash pad from if you donít mind me asking? All Iíve seen lately is just the slip on covers. Keep the pictures coming!

Noice! Square bodies for the win. Best trucks ever.

Nice bikes as well! Yoshimura exhaust always on sporty bikes!

Is that T100 or T120? Triumph makes beautiful bikes. I drool over the Speed Twin. They're kinda tall for my nonexistent inseam, sadly.

Thanks, that is a 2014 Thruxton, so a T100 I believe since the current one is a 1200.

now thats what I'm talking about!


I had a 1 ton swapped 84' K5

highly highly recommend looking into getting a 2wd steering box, XJ steering shaft and doing crossover steering asap. makes a huge difference on big tires. I also had a budget hydro assist set-up i found online a pieced together. Iw ill try to find links


Going shackle flip in back? I also loved my HD greasable shackles from ORD.


Currently searching for another K5 but pre 1979 because I love round headlights

Nice. I love squarebodies. Used to have a K5 but sold it after the SxS bug bit me. Got into Jeeps now but a 2wd K5 or SWB C10 would be a fun project.

Update. Front axle is out. One of the front leaf spring bolts had to come out in 3 pieces and I cut the front of that side spring pack off but it's out. Hopefully the 60 will be at least hung tomorrow.

Incremental update:

Axle and shocks are in. Brake lines, driveshaft U bolts and crossover steering are in route. Going to Napa today to order a 2wd steering box.

Rear axle is in and it is sitting on the suspension! Need to order a new rear drive shaft from Tom Woods tomorrow. Still a bunch left to do but this is a big milestone.
