Hi guys, My first post. Just bought my first K5 ... I have serveral bits and pieces from several 76-83 C/K trucks. I have a complete 76 5/4 military truck with a bad cab (damn salt up here in canada) I was thinking it might be nice to put the heavy running gear under my new K5. I was wondering if it was possible to chop some of the length off the truck frame to fit the K5. Has anyone here done this? Are the frames the same less the extra length for the box? I realize the rear suspension would have to be moved forward. Are there some specs somewhere on the net that list what these changes (dimensions measurments etc) would have to be? One other quick question. Has anyone here experimented with treating/coating frames and suspension with Rhinoliner ( i know they are some new company name but can't think of it off the top of my head) My friend owns the company that builds the spraying equipment for them so i have access to the sprayer and liner really cheap. Just thought if i am planning on sandblasting and painting the frame anyway it might make it last much longer with the salty conditions up here. I was even thinking about coating the bottom of the truck and maybe even up 4-6in on the body with the stuff when i get it painted this summer. Any input welcome! T.
