Writing my first post as required but will give a bit of background.

Like so many i am a webwheeler while at work but i actually have trucks and have had many more in the past. I recently moved down from Prince George to POCO and will slowy get back into the 4x4 scene. Both my fun vechicles are still up in PG but will bring them down when i have the time and space.

I spent 5 years in south africa and moved back at the end last year to PG which was too much of a hole so i moved down here. Grew up in PG and was part of NCOAS when it first was developed and know most of the original memebers quite well.

So now the important stuff what kind of junk i have.

current vechicles-

the toy= jeep cj7- yj frame, figerglass body, spring over with 2" lift springs, locked dana 44's, 350 LT1 thats been 'warmed up', turbo 350,205. 38 swampers. stripped down so it weighs 3200 pounds, was racing in mudbogs but now sits waiting for a new tranny. Street legal, well as legal as most big 4x4's

the new project/ daily driver- 1987 gmc sb fleetside. 305 TBI, 465, 208, 10 bolts, 31's. i completely redid the body so now it is very strait and shiney

the plan- i have the 60/14bolt, 4:88 with powerlock/detroit, the 205, and vortec head 350 on propane, will lift it 6-8 inches and throw on some 35 or 37 boggers.

The truck will be coming down in a month or two then the process begins.

will post pics later.

ex trucks
1983 gmc diesel on 37ssr's
1994 F350 on 35' BFG's
2 1985 Toyotas on 35 boggers - one regular, one extended cab
1976 FJ40, 350 on 33's
