well i decided a few weeks back to restore and rebuild my 93 2500 4x4 . i bought the truck earlier this year for a work truck, i only paid 1400 with a plow. truck was in good shape for the money, took it home and started on it , i had a 89 with alot of new parts , but the frame snapped . So i put the nose on the 93 which i pulled off a 2 wheel drive , new manifolds , fixed the floor rot , and painted all the interior black , truck was fine all summer then things started to go . So heres my list of new, heating and cooling system , fuel system, every sensor on motor , transfer case, u joints, windshield, shocks exhaust , and i am sure theres more . Now the tranny went so i started the swap today going to a 465 4 speed from a 4l80, i got the old tranny out today , gonna pull the 465 out in the morning. gonna have to remember the camera, i have no pics of the truck cause it was just another work truck, but now i have replaced so much i have decided to do a resto on it and retire her from work, i always wanted to redo a oobs , but now i am already half way there with this one. After the tranny swap the bed is coming off, so i can sand and paint the frame , gonna order a bushing kit to replace all of them and do a body lift at that point , then some 35s. My list after that is bucket seats , then the interior is done , putting in a tilt column during the tran swap, squirt the truck in primer cause i want to get a cowel hood before i paint it, probaly going to put the newer grill and headlights on as well. The motor i am not sure about maybe just cam, heads and intake. or go 383 , not to worried about that yet. i will try to get pics up as soon as possible , right now your not missing much, single cab 8' bed , black primer fenders and doors, red cab and bed.
