Re: 1972 Chevy Crew Cab “Denali”

I thought about doing this to a 65 I had way back when, but I don't have anywhere near the talent you have. Damn dude, you are one bad ass. I wish I had half the talent you have to. I am certainly watching this one. Rock on man. RR

Appreciate the words brother! A 66 crew is on the build list in the future... I’m just learning as I go and trying to improve each step of the way. I love it tho

Haven’t updated in awhile. Still working on it when I can... ordered some parts and they were delayed a month due to COVID so in the mean time I added some helper spring air bags. I’d like to tow my k10 with this truck some day so I figured air bags would help with the sag when towing. Came out nice. Fabricated and upper mount and lower mount as well. Lower mount attaches to my U bolt top plate but is removable to allow access to the u bolt nuts. My guage cluster for this truck had an air pressure guage I hope to incorporate into the air bags.

My ordered parts finally arrived. I was debating on running crossover steering on this truck but I figured due to the added weight of the bigger cab and big block I would go ahead and install now rather than later.. I ordered the Dana 44 crossover steering kit from ORD. Bought a factory 2wd gear box and also a new flat top passenger knuckle from REID racing. Tore the axle down. Replaced everything that needed replaced... bearings, races, seals, rotors, calipers, pads, ball joints, axle u joints... I don’t wanna have to tear this apart at a later date... got the steering arm installed and hope to have it all back together this weekend... getting hard to find parts for these old 44s

Re: 1972 Chevy Crew Cab “Denali”

Looking good Clayton, I went with the airlift bags for a square body when I get around to installing. Yours look beefy. Keep up the great work! Trevor

Re: 1972 Chevy Crew Cab “Denali”

Very nice work. It seems like everything old is hard to get parts for currently.

Got the front axle back together minus the diff cover.. gotta snug down the steering nuts yet. After a few years of collecting the nicest big hub parts I could find for this truck I finally put everything back together... Got some new 316 Allen bolts to finish the hubs off... I just love these old big hubs... Got lucky enough to find original plastic hub dials that weren’t broken... about ready to tear this body back off and finish a bit on the cab and start on the frame...

Mounted up my NOS west coast jr mirrors this weekend... also fabricated up a rear hitch for the sport bumper. Tried to keep it tucked up and clean as possible looking... threw some rear tow hooks on there as well. That way I have hooks front and rear.. pushed outside for some final pics before I rip apart and finish some small metal work left on the cab...
