When most people think about trucks and me they think lowered or fast, because I’m a huge fan of stuff on Air Ride and laying out a truck on the ground is cool. But what lots don’t know is that I have been a lifted truck guy forever too. I had a bitchin 1992 OBS truck, lifted on Super Swampers of all sizes, with Air Ride in fact. I haven’t owned a 4×4 in quite some time, but my 3/4 ton 2wd Suburban had a mild 3 inch lift on it before someone decided to crash into it. With all that said, I’d love to build another big tire 4×4 with either a lot of lift or very little, or both. Growing up, trucks like this LS Swapped K10 were all I dreamed of, while reading the pages of 4-Wheel and Off-Road or Four-Wheeler magazines.
This one ticks off all the boxes for me visually. I mean look at it. 39.5 Super Swampers and 8 inches or more of lift make the stance PERFECT don’t you think? It looks retro great, but with modern power thanks to the LS3 under the hood. Everything is fresh, was completely restored, and it even has brand new Vintage Air in it. This is one sweet ride.
If I were building it from scratch, I’d have a couple things I’d want different, like a Dana 60 and 14 bolt, crossover steering, and maybe a touch more tire. LOL
At any rate, this thing is nice and I’d be proud to have it in my driveway, wouldn’t you?
