Gen III 6.0L org. 5.7 TBI
Hello everyone! I have a '91 V1500 burb. It was a project that someone else started. Has a "4" lift". I know it has 4" blocks in the rear and appears to be stock in the front, maybe 2". I'm planning to go 6" springs all around. Currently has 35" tires, going to go 38" someday. It has factory 10 bolt axles with 4.56 gears that the previous owner installed. And the thing that you guys will hate me the most for... I installed a Gen III 6.0L engine and 4L80E. I tried to save and update the factory L05 350, but she was toast. I already had the 6.0L, so I swapped it out and added a few tasteful mods. The 6.0L really gets her up and moving pretty darn quick. I'm still tuning the engine myself and learning as I go. Lately I've been trying to get the air-conditioner up and running. I kept the factory R4 with some aftermarket brackets, but have been concerned about having enough ummff to cool this beast. The previous owner deleted the rear air, so I have fully converted it to front only. Searching for upgraded AC components lead me to this awesome group! It looks to have tons of info so I thought I would join up.

Thanks for having me!

Welcome in from NC. I'm not going to hate on you for doing the swap. You're saving a Square and that's alright with me.
