    Was at the local junkyard today and saw a 79 blazer, white top, primer grey-part bondo- with the coloradok5.com sticker on each side window of the top. There were other stickers also, but there was a City of Mesa Police sticker on it also. I'm assuming it was towed /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    It's hard to tell if that's the one. I think the windshield was in it, but I know for sure there wasn't a sticker across the top. I was pushed for time, so I couldn't look it over that well, and for that matter it was 1 of about 30 I looked at. I do know I looked for a few of those "treasures" that you find on a colorado k5 chebby, ie rear shackle flip. Nothing like that. The whole drive train was gone also. I do remember opening the driver door and hearing something rattle, so I looked down in it and noticed power windows. The bondo was coming off the rear driver wheel well.

    I mis id'd the axle(s). Sorry Shawn /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif The ID in the technical portion looked like it. She (counter girl) said any front axle 4x4 $195 + tax. I go there often, so when I learn how to properly ID a 60 and see one- I'll post it.

    Yeah, that's what I looked at and that's what it looked like. It had the 8 lugs and all. I'm going to have to look at one up close. Pull a Part is the yard- south side of the road on broadway at 31st ave.

    A D60 has 3 u-bolts, 2 on the driver side and 1 on the pass side and it will have 2 bolts onto of the pass spring plate by the pumpkin. Hope that helps you out.
