First pictures of my project B.A.D. 1976 K30

Here are some pics of my new project. I can't figuire out what to call it except this, Big A** Diesel. Right now it has 10" suspension lift and 3" body. It will have 16" total suspension lift in a few weeks. It has 52" Michelin XZL's on it with 20x10 Mickey Thompson Classic 2's. It will have a 1991 Suburban dual plastic head lamp front clip with a steel cowl hood. It will be powered by an intercooled rotary pump 5.9 and it will have a MT653 Allison transmission. I am thinking i am going to paint it the same color the cab is now. It is called black cherry if I remember right. It will have 6" turn out stacks, traction bars, and maybe some DVD player or two. I want to build custom bumpers for it like road armor style, but we'll have to see how much time I have. In the first pic my younger brother is standing next to it. He is 6' 2". I can't wait to get this thing running and go for a spin in it. Here are some starter pics. Let me know what you think.

that looks like it will be one tough truck. i don't think that poor dana 44 has a chance. still really nice to see a crew cab getting fixed up.

Thanks. I've got a Ford Dana 60 that I might swap in. It just depends how much more work it will take.

Nice. Instead of more lift maybe a little fender trimming? It would keep center of gravity lower. My $.02. Good luck!

I will lift it more. I don't want to cut my rust free GM panels. If it was just a trail truck I would cut them, but I want this to be as nice as I can afford to make it.
