Hey Carlito,

I don't want to discourage you or anything but you have to understand that this isn't really a b-series pickup group. The REPU differed from the b-series pretty significantly and the last one was made in '77. So there isn't going to be a tonne of people with late-model b-series experience on the list.

That said you want to try to hook up with some low-rider guys. The rearend is easy, you can put whatever you want back there. Look for other small trucks with the same width, like Toyos. THe front is the problem. If you don't mind lowering the truck then its a lot easier because they made all sorts of drop spindles for them. Otherwise its a little more difficult to do because you're going to either need to find hub assemblies or entire control-arm/spindle assemblies and I don't know of any that bolt in. But like I said, the late-model b-series pickups are a completely different truck from my REPU so I don't have any direct experience to share with you. Talk to you're local salvage yard guys and try to hook up with some low-rider guys in your area. They're going to know what can be done on a late model b-series moreso than anyone else I'm willing to bet.

Yes, there is...

...but it's not online, not that I know of...and it's not b-series specific, but rather truck-specific...(but I haven't searched for it yet, either...) It's called Truckin' magazine, published by www.mcmullenargus.com
You might also find the Eastwood catalog useful for restoration tools, etc. ... 1-800-345-1178
