    Thanks, its been 99% a one man build since I bought it so it takes forever, plus money is tight. I'll post more as I make progress.

    It saw a lot of mud over the years but i have rebuilt it mainly to advertse my Sub Shop and Bait and Tackle Shop that i am opening next door. I used be be able to take it offroad close to home years ago but now any off roading or mudding is a long way off. I am getting a trailer for it as it probably wont get 2 miles per gal, if that. I would not have gone with a supercharger if it was going to be a serious mud truck . The axles are later GMC's that I swapped in. they look almost original which is cool. They have beefier tubes, thicker fine spline axles, better seals and they make Detroit Lockers for em which it has front and rear. It is getting lockout hubs. The front axle has been narrowed and uses 2 short side shafts. The pics in the slideshow are mixed up on the front axle shots, the narrowed axle should be the second photo, you can see the weld between the U joints on the drivers side. Here is a pic of the wrap its getting, the bed sides are plated over so the wrap will be on the front fenders and bed sides and the buisness names will be on the sides.
