    98 K3500 Crew Cab

    Towing with oversized tires?

    Thanks guys for the replies. :waytogo: I really like the way that yevgenievich's Suburban looks with 285s on stock wheels. They should help fill out the wheelwells on this beast.

    Towing with oversized tires?

    Does anyone tow with lager than stock tires? I picked up a 98 K2500 454 4L80E 410s and was thinking of stepping up the tire size to 285s or 315s. My rational side is saying stick with 265s and stock suspension but my motorhead brain is saying SAS Dana 60 and 315s :D

    98 K3500 Crew Cab

    Power washed the truck... she's got some dings & dents and a little rust but overall not in too bad shape. I guess i should start a seperate build for this truck.

    98 K3500 Crew Cab

    That was originally the idea, strip for parts for the white CCLB. But now after power washing and giving it a good once over, plus a cruise around the neighborhood... :D the plan has changed. She's going to get her rusty spots fixed(cab corners & above the windshield) a set of new 265 or 285...

    98 K3500 Crew Cab

    So whats better than one GMT400? While looking around for parts for the crew cab i stumbled across this 98 2500 Ext cab long bed. I couldnt pass up a deal on this one so i dragged it home. She needs some TLC but not bad for a New England truck. Especially when i found this under the hood.

    98 K3500 Crew Cab

    Looks pretty rough... dont need anything specific for the 79. Perhaps salvage any good parts left, like the grille & trim and any other small items if not damaged

    98 K3500 Crew Cab

    Picked up a few more pieces to the puzzle today. I found someone parting out an unfinished project... ORD kit, Kingpin 60, crossover, F&R leafsprings and shocks.

    Yup, I'm definitely suffering from GM Crewcabitus. :D

    98 K3500 Crew Cab

    I like them but a little steep on the price. What do you think about these style lights? https://www.ebay.com/itm/200mm-H6054-HL-109-H4-EURO-CONVERSION-HEADLIGHTS/263845247668

    98 K3500 Crew Cab

    Thanks, I believe ARB is still producing them. I called the Main Line Overland NH store and they are checking on the price & availability. The plan is ORD brackets, 2" squarebody 47" leafs up front and ORD shackle flip out back. That should put the truck around 5"-4" total lift. Eventually id...

    98 K3500 Crew Cab

    Kingpins are stronger than balljoints, plus the crossover steering arm bolts on in place of the kingpin cap. '77.5-79 F250 (sometimes) '79 F350 31-1/2" spring pad spacing '85-91 F350 36-1/2" spring pad spacing Off Road Design makes kits to accommodate either axle Combine their SAS kit with...

    98 K3500 Crew Cab

    :gr_grin: Nice, im jealous... id be stopping at the ORD shop buying parts for my Squarebody & GMT400 all the time. The earlier king pin axles are a better choice for these swaps. Plus you could always upgrade to the custom ORD springs down the road.

    How to recover a headliner

    Looks great! :waytogo: I need to do the same for my crew cab as well. How much material did you end up using?

    98 K3500 Crew Cab

    :D I really like the cab marker lights and wish that they came with the truck originally, just not sure if i want to start drilling holes in the roof.

    98 K3500 Crew Cab

    Messing around with wheelbase ideas... Stock Wheelbase is 168.5" -28" + 1" forward for the ORD front axle brackets = 141.5" Basically the stock extended cab short bed wheelbase The tire is a 37x1350x17 and the tape measure is about where a 5' bed would end

    98 K3500 Crew Cab

    I like the half door idea, even the door hanger is cool The center console fits in there pretty nice. Is it possible to use the front seats and center console from a newer truck?

    98 K3500 Crew Cab

    I am definitely going with the ARB front bumper for these trucks. One of the best looking off road GMT400 bumpers available.

    98 K3500 Crew Cab

    Really like the WFO stuff but it's a little bit out of my budget. I'll probably use the Off Road Design Solid Axle Conversion kit and run leaf springs. I've started looking around for a Ford Dana 60 front axle. I'm open to new ideas and suggestions Yeah i need to get that serpentine stuff...
