    Default 1990 C350

    So I am starting the post of my latest project. I bought a 1990 C350 on ebay. Most of you probably saw it in the for sale post recently. here are the pics I have...

    I have yet to get the truck but plan on going down on wednesday morning and bringing it home

    a couple of days ago I picked up a set of swamper trxus 44x21x16.5 tires on 16.5x14 welds on the cheap and I think that these are going on the truck?!? I am still on the fence about this.

    today I got a 1995 f250 front clip for the front end conversion for $200. I could not pass this up.

    so far the plan is to shackle reversal the front and flip the back. I got a guy who will sell me 4" lift springs for the front for $100. I will build my own reversal with 3-5" lift. that gives me 9" in the front. I think that the sky manuf rear flip is reasonable for $150 and I have 4" lift springs laying around for the rear that should give me around 8" in the rear and I can add a small block if necessary. I think that the 44's will fit with bushwacker cut out flairs. no hook up there probable have to pay full boat at $500.

    that is the rough plan so far with a 12v cummins in the future.

    I put 31's on one our trailers and hate it. I would rather use a drop hitch.

    The extra 2" of height it added caused a lot more wind drag.

    Uh, its mine now....



    It also lost the front 60 at his hands, somewhere along the way.

    ANd it picked up a crate 460

    And it had a rebuilt trans at about year 2000.

    ANd it sat....... when it was sold in 08, it had within 500 miles of where it was when I acquired it in 2009

    ANd no, he didn't do a thing with it, no 44's, no newer clip, although I have acquired a set of 40's, and have enough lift just waiting to go on.

    They just require a 15" rim, and unsure if I want to grind my new calipers enuff to fit them. If I were staying with the axle I have, not an issue as that is the biggest draw to GM calipers, but... I am swapping it for alow pinion 44 that has Ford outers, and that will require "assistance"
    My acquisition thread is "BlackDog and the pups head to TakeSess" and my tranny replacement saga is CLyde developed Amnesia
