    82 GMC k2500

    Just sold 79 bronco and went out and bought 82 GMC 2500 for $500, truck is pretty much rust free, only rust is on inner front fender and there isnt much at all!!! the truck came wit blown 350, and 383 but somebody stripped cam and intake from 383 so i put 305(that i had built) in it....truck runs great but dont really no much about it...it came wit turbo 400 from factory, correct?? and it has d44 in front and 14b semi floater in rear?? thats a 9.5 ring gear not 10.5 right?? it is sittin on 33's wit 4in lift but i have 38.5 GUMBO MUDDERS that i would like to put on it....are the tires any good?? wat would i have to do to put them on??? i have heard mixed opinions about how i can put 3" BL on it and be fine...but others say no???? the truck is a mudd truck and occasional daily driver.....and id like to lock the rears up..or at least the rear..wat locker??? or should i go spool or posi or limited slip?? i was also told i could clear the 38's wit just 6" lift and no BL, is that true?? i would rather go 4" and 3" BL, cause wit 6" lift i would have to extend drive shafts, correct???

    any help is appeciated

    Thanks
    Jim

    If its a 3 speed auto and the trans pan is shaped like texas its a turbo 400, if not its a 350. With the axles not sure, you'd have to look at the ring gear the combo sounds about right they usually have something like that, Gumbos aren't bad in mud not great on the street. With the body lift it might be close, most likely have to trim fenders though. not a chance on the 6" lift clearing 38s, 35s will rub with a 6" if your mean enough. Posi and limited slip are the same thing Posi traction just a brand name and I have an Auburn limited slip and really like it spools wear tires badly. And finally no, driveshaft length should be fine with a 6" lift but you have to grind a little bit off the CV cluster to keep it from binding.
