    Thanks for letting me join! I've peeked in on the site in the past and recently found a truck I've been hunting for. 1986 GMC crew cab long bed, it already had a lift (superlift 12" up front and 8" w/reversed ORD shackles on rear, crossover steering and a few odds and ends. It has Michelin X 15.5/80R20 tires which seem a bit big to me, someone off-road it for a short time and got tires into fenders of course, but I plan to just street drive it (too big to trail ride:)). I want to get mechanicals done before tackling the body. So I'm gonna need some advice along the way from guys that have done it, saves me time. I'm a Safety Manager by day, Run a small restoration shop in the evening and weekends while still doing the family thing with my beautiful wife and awesome 2 kids (1 - 21yr old girl[1yr old grandbaby] and 1 - 14yr old boy). I moved the shop to the farm so I didn't have to travel to a different site and family can come hang out if they really miss me. Thanks again for having me, Scott
