Since I have 3 of these 454 ss kits I decided to build one as a mild street truck. Then I decided to take the interior and chrome bumpers/grille from the snap '96 dually and make this one a '96 regular cab short box. I cut the interior tub from the dually and spliced in the back wall from the '90 interior to make it fit the reg cab. Then I flipped the front spindles to lower the front end and I modified the mounting points with brass tubing to fit the Pegasus wheels.

I'm going to leave all stock other then the wheels and the lowered suspension. I just want a nice clean street truck.

Did you have to modify the front clip for the grill to set properly?

Thanks Rodney. 

 

Nick, nope it all fits together perfect. Only thing I modified to fit was the interior tub.

Well here is a long over due update on this truck. I painted it shortly after the last post. Paint went bad so I pulled out a second kit and painted that one. That also went down hill so I got discouraged and put it away.

Well now I decided to get it back out and open it all up. Hinges are finished and now it needs door jambs.

Nice, i picked up 2 of these barely started for 5.00 for the pair.  Im looking to do a nice lowered street truck out of one and a custom truck out of the other. I really like the interior swap you did. I would think about opening up the grill and adding a new grill out of small rods.

Great project, I have one that I'll build sometime in the near future (I hope :) ) but is a long bed and I need a short bed to resemble a '96 C-1500 I used to drive some years ago (I miss my truck :( ), and I need to make or find a dash to...I'll keep an eye on this build!

Peguas also make a staggered 19/20 something? set as well.  You can find them on ebay under "big and little" but they fit this truck well.  I have them on some other c-1500s ive built

Thanks guys! They are Pegasus 23 T's. I have a set of 19's too but I thought they were too small for this build.
