I definitly would too, just that the list of things I would change would destroy most everything to do with the Desert Fox package.

I was thinking SM465, 208 or 205, 4.10s or 4.56's, and 35's, throw in a hotter cam, better heads, and change to almost any color other than tan with the terrible 70's graphics.

your axle upgrades would be included as well.

Why is he selling it after just rebuilding the engine? Why is it bored 60 over? Maybe if it was all original it would be a nice classic, but seems like a piece especially seeing the cab lean.

the cab lean is from 30 year old rubber bushings being shot, show me one off these trucks with the original bushings that doesn't have the "lean"

Or because the frame is bent or the cab mounts are rotted out. Who rebuilds an engine but can't replace a couple rubber body mounts?

I'm still rocking the stock cab mounts on my K20 and I've rebuilt the motor in it multiple times
