Here are pictures of my cruiser at various stages:
It has about 5 inches of lift from 2.5" man-a-fre springs, shackle reversal and raised rear shackles, and a little body lift. A stock 350 with a quadrajet replaced the F motor. The rear springs are moved back 3" to make room for a TH 350, 3 speed t/c, and a NP203 gear reduction box. I'm using the vacuum linkage for my four-wheel drive and dual levers for my t/c high-low and the NP203. It has a '78 front and rear end w/ disks up front. A GM master cylinder and booster provide the power. I now run 35X12.50-15 Goodyear MT/R's on 15X8 aluminum wheels. I am using a Howe aluminum radiator with a Edelbrock Victor water pump and a steel mechanical fan for cooling.
This is the cruiser soon after I bought it in 1991. At this point it had been sandblasted, primered, and the buckets were added.

Here is the custom box we built behind the seats. It also served to replace the small spots of rust in the rear wheelwell:
This shows the rhino-lining that extends up over the dash:
Here is the spare tire/gas can carrier I found: Carrier
