View Full Version : K10/C10 Dilemna
08-17-2011, 07:03 PM
Okay so here's the situation... I am replacing a ton of parts on my truck... in fact almost all body parts including the cab. When I bought the cab I was a noob and didn't get a 4wd cab (I have a 1986 K10).... I know the center hump for the transmission is different. What should I do? Is there a place that sells that piece that I could have welded in? Or am I going to have to cut out my old one and swap it to the 2wd cab?
Also heard I could do a body lift.... I know nothing about that kind of stuff though. I could do it, I just want to make sure it's safe and isn't going to look stupid.... and I don't know how much I really need.
Thanks for any advice/help!

With a body lift you'll see more of your frame when looking at the side of the truck. You also get gaps between your front and rear bumpers and in the fender wells. Body lift shouldn't be hard to do.
I'm not sure on the size, but 3" body lift should work.

The gaps on a 3" body lift are noticeable and don't quite look right unless you fill them in or relocate the bumpers. I'd suggest cutting out the tranny hump and welding the 4x4 one in. It will save a lot of hassle in the long run.

i would throw a 1 inch body lift and see if the trans clears the hump

cut the hump out of your old cab, and weld it in. what trans and transfer case are you running?

yea cut the hump out and put a high hump in

unless you have a 700/208, at which point it will probably fit under the 2wd floor with a little massaging, leaving you with more interior room...
if its apart it will be easy to cut that section out and move it to the new cab
