Well heres my build, after finding a 53 Willys with a locked up F134 i decided to do a drivetrain swap. Then i acquired the parts truck, a 1980 K10 with a 350 (TH350/NP205). Instead of swaping all the parts over ive decided to go the route of swapping bodies, so now its time to cut out about 26 inches of k10 frame to shorten up my wheelbase....

Heres a little initial mochup pic





Lots of fitment left, including taking the rear lift blocks out so its not such a stinkbug. Then to hack off the excess frame on the rear, compcut the fenders and inboard the rear springs... and then BIGGER TIRES!!!
