I've been collecting parts, trucks, and tools for some time now and can finally my SAS is in progress. I sourced a 3/4 ton frame in excellent shape and with my luck the kid didn't want to pull the 350, harness, ECU, 4l80e, or tcase. A few weeks later my friend's father pulled the motor out of his k1500 for his jeep project and was about to junk the rest of the truck. I stepped in and got it along with the title for free(!!) My goal will be a registered '97 k1500 sitting on top of a '97 k2500 frame running 8 lug Dana 60 balljoint front end and 14 Bolt rear end. Time will tell if the motor is in good shape after I tear it down, if not then I will be open to swaps or what ever deal can comes my way. Feedback is always welcome. I'm learning as I go and honestly I think the only thing I have going for me is my patience. I'm not very skilled in body work or being a mechanic but I'm not afraid to read!

Front Leafs: ?? Cab is currently in the yard, I have the full front clip as well for it in the barn already. I've been picking pieces off of it over the past few weeks labeling and organizing everything as I go The fame the day I picked it up. It is in excellent shape for being in New England it's entire life. It is missing a few crossmembers in the rear that the kid had snagged for his other projects. I was thinking of putting in the 42 Gal suburban tank since why the hell not? Frame making it's way home Axle making it's way back to the barn. According to the BOM numbers it is a '97.5-'98 Ford 'Dana 60HD'. It is a balljoint dana 60 that I choose to go with because during the 96+ model year they had better front caliper options. I need to get the passenger side knuckle shipped out to be machined for crossover steering. Any recommendations for steering?
