OK, finally just about finished with our pickup, thanks in no small part to this great forum. I never did see how to post decent pics on this site, so here's a link to pics and a short description of the build. Many thanks to all who helped with advice and parts!

Engine is a stock '84 bored 2 mm with new heads, electronic ignition and internal VR alternator out of a Maxima. Everything else is stock. Rear coilover shocks are Monroe Sensatrac #58568. This fits the 4 inch lift with removal of the bumper and a little bit of relieving of the swingarm. So far they have given a good ride and should allow for a bit of payload.
