    72 K5 it\'s new and it\'s fun!

    Bought a 72 last month. 330HP GM 350, Turbo350, 4inch Superlift, 33inch BFG M/T's (not much tread left /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif) Check out pictures on the trail at Webshots under WRFDfirefighter184. Might end up selling her though. The wifey wants me to keep the 85 instead. But, the 85 is stock, with a 305. Who in their right mind would comply with such a heinous wish? If I could get enough out of the 72 to lift and gear the 85, MAYBE I might consider. I don't know. I'm in love with my 72. Her name is "Violator".

    Hope you don't have to sell it. Sounds like a nice rig. Got any pictures? /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

    Sweet pictures. It looks like a lot of fun. Your 1st Gen pics look like you're havin more fun than the '85 too. I agree, sell the '85 and keep the 1st gen!
