Bastrop/Elgin Area

Hey guys, I came across the boards looking up 4x4 stuff in Texas while I am in Afghanistan. I'm over here as a dirty contractor this time around. I'd like to get into more 4x4 adventures. Mostly it's been running through the mud at my buddy's land. I have a '88 Jimmy with a 5.3 swap, a '78 K30 Crew will finally get the Cummins/NV4500 installed when I get back and a '76 K20 Crew might get a 8.1/Allison I have or Duramax we'll see.



Coming out of the pit, it blew the PS return line.

Figured I'd add a few from the 5.3 swap. I was in a hurry to get it done and in the mud before heading back to Southwest Asia again so I didn't take that many pictures. The swap was easier than I thought it was going to be. I did the wiring harness myself using guides from the interwebs. I used Advance Adapters motor mount plates and 700r4 to LS adapter.
