    1978 K5
    6 inches on 35 ground hawgs
    locked 10 bolts f/r 3.73 gears
    no doors/tailgate/chopped roof
    4 point cage
    TH350
    NP203

    This was my rig until an electrical fire toasted most of the wires/hoses in the engine compartment. It ran great until then. The front end is fresh with new barrings/seals and mini-spool. The rear is a jasper built 10 bolt with what I believe is a gov-lock. The tires are 35x14.5x15 on some beat up 15x8 steelies. Two are around 60% and the other two are around 25%. The cage is from smittybilt. All this truck needs is an engine rebuild or a new one dropped in. The body is fairly beat up...this was a trail rig :D but not too bad.

    Pics can be seen here...

    The truck is the same as the pics minus the 14bolt and 38's. It will also be 6 lug rather than eight. I'll try to get more up to date pics ASAP.

    How much would you want for this? I am in Atlanta so pick up would be possible.

    Cage

    Just priced it new at $290 and this one is perfect...never rolled only has one hole drilled in it for my fire extinguisher(which worked horribly in the fire :D ) so I'll go $175 and I can bring it to you this w/end... I'm coming home to see my dad on F-Day so I could meet you somewhere? If this sounds good let me know.
