    yep^^basically like any other major project, its gonna take some time and its gonna take some money but in the end you end up with a badazz one of a kind rig, but yea i say for those rockwells you'd either want a hopped up big block or diesel

    So if i want to do my Rockwell swap.Like Vano said and after finding out myself.I will have to make it longer.Any idea's on how to make it longer guys?

    According to what i found out.I have to extend it by 27''

    So is this pretty much a dead in the water project now if i cant find a logical durable way to extend my truck?

    Ya thats not an option.No flatbed,lol.

    I will have to do some brainstorming to see what i can come up with.Ask my group that i mud with(plenty of them very much into heavily modding there rigs)and get some idea's.But think this forum would be the best considering I'm the only one with my generation truck in the group.

    So if anyone has any other idea's to extend to 27'' let me know?
