    I built the crane a few years ago to remove the cab from the frame to fix a couple rust holes in the floor and to complete cleaning and painting the frame. Last year I used it to remove the body from the 83 K5 blazer to fix the floor and restore the chassis. This year the K10 is going through a final restoration and the crane was handy for removing axles for servicing, painting, and a 2" easy ride suspension upgrade. I am currently prepping and painting the body.

    Very nice! I really like the color scheme. And you don't see many beds like that.

    Damn I'm impressed. Nice work. That's the most interesting wooden rigging I've ever seen in my life.

    Thank you. This is what happens when a carpenter restores a truck.
