I currently have a 63 chevy short bed stepside. The question I have is do I lower it, or 4x4 it? The truck has many problems that money and time will fix. Since I have a 77 K-5 4x4 frame, and a 89 Caprice, I can go either way. grin I have checked the dimensions and the 89 Caprice frame will work. I will have heavy duty discs up front and a rear sway bar. Plus the motor and transmission. smile


If at first you don't succeed, get a bigger hammer.

Low...slow... with alot of go is my vote.Airbag the suspension and throw some '20's on it!I've swapped bodies before from 2wheel frame to 4wheel using a 3ton engine hoist and blocks to seperate/transplant to a 4wheel frame.I did it in one weekend with hand tools-solo.But that was with a '73 fulltop blazer.I've also converted my brothers 4 wheel '72 blazer from 4 to 2 wheel by swapping front crossmembers,rearends and drive-trains.Take good measurements prior to ripping everything apart,take pictures with a disposeable camera for reference purposes,and go at it.Anythings possible with a sawsall,a torch and a little time- enjoy yourself.
