This is my current and most favorite ride of all. When I bought the truck it had a mild small block in it. Over the past 18 months, I’ve completely redone the interior and drive train. OverKill now sports a 468 c.i. blown big block with an 8-71 Don Hampton blower. I made a conscious decision to keep chrome off the truck, so it has lots of wrinkle-black powdercoat. I added lots of reinforcements the frame to include a fabricated “C” notch over the rear axle. The fuel system was completely upgraded to handle the demands of the new motor. The TH350 trans was completely rebuilt with high strength components from ATI and Turbo Action.
