Nice to see a site located in BC that I/we have something in common with!! I'm driving an '81 Chev 1 ton, massaged 454, th400, np205, 4.56's, somewhere around 8-10" lift, 39.5" Iroks. Rescently worked through numerous trans leaks, mangled/burnt wiring, needs shocks and new springs all around, steering box, list goes on. Hey, only spent a grand, no biggie!!

Going to weld the rear (if it's a 3 pin, throwing in a detroit if it's a 4), fenders are trimmed so 44's will fit no problem, it will get dual winches, all sorts of goodies.

Nice looking site, just wanted to say hello eh!!

Cheers,

Mike.[cheers]

............ I think we finally got the trans leaking fixed now though, has been alot of fun. The truck was a backyard build, at least 4 different donors, lots of bandaid fixes. Here's it painted as of friday

Welcome, was just up through there working. Saw this a couple of months ago when I was up there and thought it was pretty funny.

LOL the old Quick Save, that was the place for bottom feeder prices, no warranty, no returns, no refunds. Bought many a tire there years ago, back in '95 I picked up a set of BFG's, two had defects, cords hanging out the sidewall, literally had to threaten old Ken they'd be coming through his shop window if he didn't warranty. Eventually they did, I'm sure thye just sold 'em to someone else who didn't notice.
Geisbriech's and Reinke's, lots of both here, I'd probly know them if I saw them. Definitely a small town.. NickB, what project were you on, the bridge west of town maybe?
