I just picked up a new to me 1992 k2500 with a NV4500 transmission and SBC 350, so i figured that i should start a build thread to keep me motivated and maybe learn something from all of you. I don’t have any good photos of it yet… sorry. Tomorrow when i get the new 255/85r16 KM2s installed ill make sure that i share the love. Old truck by kyle mccarty My whole goal with this truck is to have something reliable that i can use as a pickup and explore all the trails possible without having to worry about being stranded or scratching the paint! My first reliable wheeler i had was a 2006 LJ Jeep. It was a lot of fun but i couldn’t haul much around. I went of a 1500 mile dirt road trip from the bay area thru Nevada, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Utah and Arizona. That kinda gave me a kick and then the Overland bug bit me.

I was able to haul shit but every time i scratched the paint id get sick to my stomach and those truck payments could have been a mortgage payment. So about 2 months ago i sold the truck and went on the search for something that was already beat up, a manual transmission and CHEAP!!!

Anyways those rocks chipped lots of paint off some fancy rims and i was praying that i didn’t smash a rocker panel! So anyway back to my Turd. 1992 chevy k2500 old PG&E truck 187k miles NV4500/NP241c 14 bolt semi float with 3.73 gears small block 350 replaced around 137k miles Future plans to get it drivable and comfortable replace all radiator and oil cooler lines new serpentine belt 195* thermostat new temp sending unit flush and replace fluids replace door hinges and handles convert AC to R134a replace headliner new windshield figure out the misfire around 2500 RPMs in 3rd gear 255/85r16 tires with full-size spare alignment (lifetime guarantee from firestone) odyssey battery weather stripping 120 amp alternator Actual build goals factory black fender flares black mirrors off silverado or sierra Dana 44HP or ball joint Dana 60HP SAS on coilovers flat belly skid plate hidden winch behind factory bumper tall skinny 35s tool box with inverter mounted inside 110v outlet in cab/truck bed cargo basket mounted above bed raspberry pi multimedia stereo/navigation USB ports in cab clean factory install like my 2014 truck LS 6.0 swap projector headlights Anyways thats where my head is at.
