I'm planning on completely building the engine in the C10 so it's gonna take all of my money haha

All I need in life is my Jeep, my guns, and my wrenches... And maybe some fine women too

Oh man I have so many projects and want another one....

Picked up my dad to go see the NFS movie. Thought it was pretty good. Had him try out my ZJ today. He's scared to drive it... I'm like "yeah I want more power".

Chev it or leave it.

I personally hate C10s. They're all the **** over the place locally, and everyone who has a C10 thinks their truck is so special. It's just a pickup truck from the 1970s, and an incredibly common one at that! There's 6 in my neighborhood. Just within a square mile of me, there are 6 C10s, each with an owner who thinks it's the coolest, rarest damn thing ever.

Frankly I think my neighbor's MJ is far cooler than all those lame C10s.

Old trucks... some are a cool. Others not.

I really want some kind of hard top/fastback muscle car now. But I have an 1800lb BMW 2002 (model, not year - 1975) with 200hp to restomod, a Focus that I've converted to RWD with a 5.0... and an old turbo 626 GT that made 341wtq last time on the dyno.

Ugh I need more room for these cars.

I had an '89 Dodge D150 for a couple years. IMO it was way cooler than having a C10 because like you said, compared to the Dodge they're everywhere and overpriced at that, and who wouldn't want a Mopar? It was nice too, 318, cold a/c, short bed, very straight body... Gave it up when gas became >$4.00/gal.

Part of the reason I want an early c10 is because they're common, and parts are cheap, and I'm going to build it on a high school students budget... Plus, I've always wanted one since I was little

That would be the idle air control sensor or IAC. The TPS is the one on the right when facing the motor if you have a 5.2. You probably have the I6 so never that information.

The smart thing to do would be to go get your codes scanned so you can see what you need to replace.

Sensors could of came a bit loose or been dirty. If it messes up again and you think its the tps. Check the sensor with a voltage meter and itll tell you if its bad or not

So I'm currently running a 2" BB. I'm thinking about buying RCs 4" X-Series adjustable arm kit...

My question is, is it all possibly to run the 4" lift with adjustable arms and 2" or 3" coil spacers on top of it?

Maybe, but that would put you at 7 inches on short arms, I don' believe that will work very well, plus it'll ride poorly. Why you want so tall??
