    'preciate it sweetheart! :thumb:

    I figured I'd harrass you for pics cause I knew I had seen a red pic somewhere. That thing looks damn good! :pimp: :bow:

    I can't remember, what is that - stock height 52's & 56's w/ a flip out back? Any body lift?

    thanks, finished it this weekend.
    any how it has a little body lift 1" ORD body lift w/ new poly body bushings. the springs are stock 1/2 ton 56"s in the rear & they are mounted backwards. then it has an ORD 4" shackle flip. the frt sits on superlift 4" springs & ORD extended shackles, but they will never see the trail again. i have another set of 56"ers that are close to going in there. also have a set of 15" travel shocks that i got from PORC on pirate. got to fab all that up soon. the frt also has a zero rate that has the axle moved forward 1.5". tires are 42's on stock h-1's w/ Kert's (DIY4X) rock rings i helped him design. i got the first set.

    no on the october ride i am closing on my new house this week, so remodel of the new to me house will begin this week too. it will require most of my time until it is done.

    k5 is totla of 6" if u count the body lift, also has no engine or interior in it. it will squat quite a bit in the rear if it had all the trail gear in it. also the frt will sit a 1" lower or so after the engine, tranny, & doubler goes in.

    You shouldn't add all that weight, keep it light...........just stick a 4-banger in it, maybe a Vega motor, and I'll take all that heavy engine/drivetrain off your hands...........:rolleyes:















    Damn good looking truck that should/will work as good as it looks!!! :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo:
