    Does anyone know the fastest/cheapest/easyst way to ship a K5 cross country? My blazer is in CO(80433) and I need to get it here in GA(31699). The cheepest qoute I got to have it shipped down here was $1500. I was thinking of renting a truck and doing it myself, but I don't have time to do so. Any ideas/help? /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif

    Air fairs are dirt cheap right now one way. We have a group going out to Moab and they are find great prices. They are meeting up with the trucks in Denver. Is the truck streetable and drivable? Fly out and drive it back.

    I bought my crew cab out in CO and had it shipped to IL they where very fast and and answered any and all questions and I believe they charged 600 or 650. I bought it last thanksgiving. I can't find my reciept but if you want I'll call the dealer and find out who they where. And they are based right there in CO, thats one reason they where pretty fast. Mine showed up on a 3 car gooseneck being pulled by a dodge cummins dually. Thought I would throw that out there, because I was under the impression that it would arrive on a semi.

    Also check with Wes (thatk30guy) he had Shawn's K30 shipped from Denver to Kansas last year, so perhaps he knows someone that will do it fairly cheap. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    Put some small tires on it and put it in a Uhaul or Ryder truck. Find a dock that you can "borrow" and it makes loading and unloading easier. Better yet. Take a flight to yer rig and drive it back. Much cheaper, but I would like to see the look on the worker at UHaul when you drive a rig out of the back!!!
