    Welcome to the site. I also love the old CC trucks.

    So the second truck is a donor? Are you going to use the dually wheel wells? I'd be interested in the red marker lights if they are not cracked and in good shape.

    Welcome. I wish I had started where you started. When I go to hunting camp by myself I can't stop at walmart or nothin'......my crap would get stolen outta the back. Since the first trip in my K10, I've been lookin' at the CC and the burbs.

    Keep us posted, maybe start a build thread as many others have done. We like pics.

    Big respect here for fathers that build together with their boys.
