    The better half found a 91 1 ton crew cab v series gm with a 454 and a 5 speed such should be a nv4500 and a right drop.241 or 205. Of course it's a long box but that's some thing i can fix later.

    sounds like a good option to me. 5 speed nv4500, dana 60 front, crew, although your gas mpg will be single digits or close too.

    buy a cheap subie for your economy and build the crew!

    We have a driver car now. The 06 impalla ss is a sweet ride on trips. However most of our trips involve camping so that is where my sonoma comes in. I could pull 18mpg on 38s with 3:73 gears and my 4.3. With the new set.up 35 and 4:10s not sure did cut weight over 1k.

    Just drive your car and throw the 12v in the 91 cc your wife found and be done with it.
