    Glide out spare tire carrier

    I noticed my 78 k10 has the bracket on the right rear outside frame rail for the glide out carrier. Unfortunately that's the only part still on the truck. Does anyone have one? Couple of pics I've found.

    GMT800 diff swap in a square

    Hello. I've been researching axle swaps for my k5. I have a 14bSF from a 4x4 gmt400. It will widen the rear axle to basically the same width as the stock front axle. I was also thinking of converting to disk at the same time since the drums are shot. I then thought about using the gmt800 with...

    Dana 44/10 bolt wheel stud swap

    Hello, Has anyone swapped the front 7/16 wheel studs to 9/16 or 14mm? The 14B SF rear axle I have for my k5 came with 14mm and would like them to match when I install. Any part numbers for the studs? Will I need to drill the rotors? Thanks.

    Modern rearview mirror in a square

    What modern GM mirrors are being used to upgrade a square? No need for Onstar or backup camera. Would like compass, temp and autodim. I would go to a salvage yard and take the harness with the mirror. Thanks.

    Fender Antenna

    I've had several squares from the 80's and everyone had a windshield antenna. My 78 has a fender mounted one. I've also seen 88+ burbs and 3+3's with them too. What years did they use each style and why?

    Round eye showed up

    Well this is what happens when your k5 has been gone for too long at paint and body. 78 k10 Silverado SWB 350/TH350/np203 dana 44 and 12 bolt rear. Looks to have it's original buckskin interior too. Will need metal work like my k5 did. Let's just say it will be a project.

    Stepside Trim

    Do any of the step sides from the 70's have body trim? Specifically the aluminum that runs along the body that a fleet side has? Saw a 79 Silverado that only had the trim around the cab window. Didn't see any side trim or holes where it may have been. Thanks.

    K30's in the wild

    Hi, Are there any k30's for sale around? Just a driver or one that can use some work. Don't need a show truck. A Silverado with 454 and TH400 would be great. Thanks, Rory
