    just give me time lol. Honestly its almost in too good a shape to wheel haha. I was looking for a K5 in good shape and hit the jackpot when I stumbled across this on. I figured it was ll stock when I saw it for sale in a guys yard .Poped the hood and the old 305 has been replaced with a 350 with a cam,headers,edlebrock carb .The k5 only has 125k miles and the engine only has 60k on it.

    heres a interior shot ,I payed $4000 for it and the Blue is Daytona Blue just like the wifes 06 hhr that can be seen in the background of the interior pic.Its in good shape pretty much .Small amount of rust in the lower1/4's behind the rear wheels.Also a lil around the panel directly behind the tailgate .All in all its the best one ive found this early a model.I found a few nice 89-91's but man the price was outrageous.I wanted a 89-91 for the fuel injection but for the price difference I payed for mine I can swap in a howell unit or a pro-jection kit.I got a lead on a wrecked 89 in a local yard that has all the pieces intact but was wrecked hard in the pass side .I am hoping to snatch it up and use it to do a tbi swap.Depends on the shape of all the wiring and the asking price.Also dont know how forgiving the factory tbi is as far as cams ,so I need to do a lil more research.

    Planning on a 4" lift and some 33" mt's. The 33x12.50 a/t's on it now are in good shape so Im in no hurry to buy new ones lol.Also planning on buying a softtop for the summer. Everywhere I look I see people asking about how much lift to fit 33"s.Mine fit on the stock rims and I guess with them being a/t's they are a lil smaller than a 33" m/t would be.They do rub at full lock but during regular driving I dont have any rub.Looking at buying a set of the new Cooper Discovery STT's or set of Firestone Destination M/T's like I had on my previous Jeep.Yes I said Jeep lol.

    Nice truck. Definitely a great starting point for a nice wheeling rig.
