Looks like it's worth spending the money on the Transmission for it.

It has great potential, you should either keep it stock with a stream line paint job and modernized kits. When I say "kits" I don't mean anything out of Fast and the Furious lol. No, no.. I mean a nice elegant body kit that is just stream lined in the wind when going for a cruise. Something that says, "Take a good look at me, you'll never see another like me". And have some pinstripes going along its curves. Ohh yeah! You know it already looks dammn good! However you decide on creating it, I most definately would like to see it. Have funn!

About

I traded my "P.O.S." Ranger for this truck. I didn't leave it as low as it was when I got it.. I put the original springs back in it but left the lowering spindles in and had to replace the old blocks with new blocks. I've got American Racing wheels on it that were suposed to be for my Nova.They really dressed this baby up! I haven't done anything to "hot rod' this truck yet, but working to change that! The driveshaft blew out. Not just a u-joint. I mean this thing came out in pieces! It even broke the tail-shaft housing on the transmission. Did you know that '94 was a one year only driveshaft? It has a flange on the rear u-joint. I couldn't find a replacement anywhere in Ohio. It took me a long time before I just said "screw it" and got a driveshaft and rear end yoke from a '95 or '96 S-10. The guy at the salvage yard said he didn't think it would work. I told him I'd make it work. It did! I drove the truck for a while after that before the trans started failing on me. It did make a couple trips to Minnesota before it finally gave up completely. We brought it up here on a tow-dollie behind our GMC Rally van. I didn't know the trans in the van was getting bad until it blew overdrive out somewhere in Wisconsin. But that's a whole other story! It was sitting behind the shop I worked at with the transmission in pieces in boxes in the back of the cab for a couple years waiting for something to happen. That "something" happened in October, 2013. I got laid off from that shop and had to bring the truck home. That meant I had to work on it. It didn't take long for me to jack a plan into motion! The 4.3 came out and my 350 is going in. I'll have to rebuild my 700R4 or get another to go with it. There's plenty of other upgrades planned, too! Been tinkering with it off and on since October. Still nowhere ready but I haven't given up yet!
