Worked as a Lic. Mechanic for 25 yrs before joining an ARFF Dept. So I have developed a love hate relationship with all things mechanical, bikes , cars snowblowers lawn mowers, etc.

I've got a 1986 Ford Bronco fullsize sitting in my driveway that I had plans to build as an OHV. I grew up on the east coast in mostly mud bogs but I currently live 3 hours North of Moab, UT and was wondering if I should build it into a crawler (something I know little about) Some crawler friends however have told me to scrap the pile of junk & buy a jeep or toyota (neither of which I'm all too fond of) just looking for some insight before I start a tear down

I have decided that when I get a new vehicle, I will be keeping my beloved '96 Chevrolet Silverado. Standard Cab, Fleetside, Longbed K2500. I will be performing a complete frame off restoration, with considerable upgrades, some of which will include the following:

4 inch lift.
35's
Removing all of the dents and dings. The body will be perfect when I repaint.
Stroked and bored Vortec 5700
Centrifugal supercharger
Roller cam
Roller rocker arms...
the list is still growing.

The truck will be better than new.

I kind of feel left out here. I only own 4 jeeps and a '87 chevy van. The jeep's are '74 CJ-5, '76 DJ-5d (not technically a jeep) , '79 CJ-5 and a 2002 Jeep Liberty.

Im looking for an older chevy truck to restore. My father had a 1950 five window cab. Now I want one similar to that one.

AYE!

Are we going to put that to a vote?

All for the superior engineering of Chevrolet. Say Aye.
