    Hey did any of you see the latest Trucks show on spike tv with the past trucks and where they are now. I reallllly like that orange k5, it sucks what happened to it, but i have a question about it. Does anyone know where the bumpers came from? My k5 needs some bumpers and i love the ones the orange one has on it. thanks Mike

    i saw that today i saw when he built that truck 4 or so years ago

    the bumpers you can probably e-mail stacy on the website and i think that truck rocked except it was still a half-ton when he got done with it the axles were new but were still half tons
    but the paint was sick the motor

    was called BIG BLAZE

    woops it says on that site they are road armor/ trail ready.

    sorry for the hijack but did anyone else notice that they upgraded the front 10 bolt for 37's. why didnt he just put in a dana 60 for the front and why not a 14bff for the rear instead of a d60 if the project that was about how to make a project that is concerned most with the drivetrain and axles?

    is it just more stupid copyright sponser stuff like what goes on most automotive shows on tv?

    In a nutshell.

    After the show, the K5 was sold. The new owner pulled all the good parts off of it for a Jeep or rockcrawler and then swapped in some 10 bolts and a used engine/drivetrain.... Then he sold the rest....
