If 2wd hasn't scared you off already, hope you stick around. I'm buying the first truck I owned back out from under my dad to run in the Nebraska Gambler 500 this year. Its a 1990 S10 Tahoe, extended cab with the 4.3, 150,000 miles, but the body is rotting off around it. Frame is mint, but the body is just, no. Has air bags under the rear shocks good for 3 inches (if they would stay inflated). Motor is great, really torquey. Will pull the front tires off the ground when the wheeler trailer is hooked up ? The (I'm assuming for the year) 4L60e is really smooth in this truck, shifts like it should. I'm more looking for inspiration for the build since I've only ever seen 1 other 1st gen, 2wd S10 while scouring the internet. I'm thinking Dash delete, after market gauges in its place, fenders and bed cut out, run 33's or so on the back, maybe a cheaply made flat bed. Traction bars, weight in the back, Electric cooling fans, door delete with bars in their place. CB, scanner, the works. Not really a budget for this $600 beater so far, just piecing it together as we go. I'd really appreciate too hear ideas and tips for how we can build this. No, we aren't selling it for a 4x4, we aren't running "cheaters class" (We just want a challenge, not against the class). Pics and updates will be posted soon.
