Later model trucks have a defrost vent cover.  My 1974 chevy C10 stepside has a hole for each defrost output.  I would like to install the defrost vent covers from a later model truck.  Has anybody tried this?  Hate to order just to find out they won't fit.... 

Thanks in advance for your experience.

Just joined, and have used a lot of the forums here to help me along. I installed my motor and first thing I noticed is the headers didn't fit... just purchased hooker 24521 long tubes because they said they would fit... cross my fingers. Me and my sons are all learning as we go along with this build.

I have a 1986 c20. I had no problem removing the spring.I just jacked up the lower control arm and removed the knuckle. The problem is I am unable to install the new springs without compressing it a least enough to get the spring started. I can't find a spring compressor that will fit the heavy duty spring. Any insights?

Hey guys,
I was wondering if anyone has had any experience in replacing the tailgate posts on thier square. I'm looking to be doing this on my K5 but I'm pretty sure that the procedure would be the same for pickups as well. I think that the quarter panels (or bedsides in the case of a pickup) wrap around from the tail lights and are spot welded to the posts but I could be wrong. This is where I could used clarification. Let me know what you guys think.

Hi I'm Dee. Im new  to the site. Be reading a lot on here and I've got a ton of questions. First let me say I'm 37yrs old, recently married with 3kids. A couple of year ago I bought a '86 c10 2wd. Only paid $800 buck for it. It has a strong 350 with auto tyranny, but the body a little shot. I would like to raise it like 4", but after reading on here. Ive learned that they don't make lift kits for 2wds. So my first question is, is spings the only way to raise my truck?? And what the biggest size tire I can fit under it without rubbing???
