New to this forum and new to the square body world. I bought my 85 c10 shortbed 2 years ago and initially went through the brakes on all four corners, found some 8 inch rallies and had them powdercoated, put some tires on them and started on a 95 C3500 dually.

Needless to say, I'm back on the square body! Tagged it and have been driving it for several weeks now. Since getting it on the road I have swapped in a tilt column from a 91 Blazer which also had the delay module for the wipers and swapped out the original bucket seats that came in the truck when I bought for a new bench seat.

I will be searching and posting as I get further into my truck. Plans are in the works for a LQ9 and a 4L80E swap which I have in a donor 2002 Escalade and the trans I picked up from a Chevy Express 2500.

I picked these stainless steel ones awhile back, they are so deep you can barely see the slots in the wheels:)
