You dont think it will hold up to a 6.2?

Its cheap so i think its worth a shot.
If you already have a manual trans I'd go for it but if it involves a auto to manual swap then maybe not, but then again if you the swap then you would be that much ahead if you ever found a nv4500.

Yah it's cheap but all I've heard is that they kill syncrhos and are just a piss poor box. Save your pennies and do it right once. Dont forget you're time's worth something.

That body is not bad for the age. Rockers and cab corners.
M1028 is a nice truck to have. Sheet metal is cheap.

Actually everyone keeps saying that. The bed looks fine from what I see. cab corners, rockers and doors. probably a little floor work. Nothing a few weekends and a few 12 packs can't fix easily.

Looking closer you are very right. Now the problem is that if I bring home another truck I'll be killed. Besides I'd rather have those axles in my 1990:D
But I could easily sell off the body and chassis... Although I do really like the idea of retro fitting that style dash in to my toyota..... :D lol
