    Hello everyone. Just wanted to let everyone know I am back and alive. I just moved my wepbsite over to here last night. Can be viewed at blueknight.coloradok5.com. I have a bunch of stuff still to add but most of it is there. Good to see the Site has evolved so nicely. Anyone seen Tom Roszko? I had a computer crash and lost my email address for him. Really need to get up and get my tailgate.

    Well the photos for the 396 are well not done because the new engine is not in yet. Delays and such have slowed the transplant to a crawl. This spring I should have it done

    Welcome back! How is your overhead console attached???

    Oh my Well there isnt much to attach anything there, so some metal and wood fabrication all the way back to the center roll bar was made and screwed into the skin metal just under the head liner and windshield frame. Lag bolts are then secure the entire console to the mounting plate.

    Cool. I just love my approach angle with it mounted that way not to mention its very hard for someone to accidentally back into my vehicle in a parking lot and destroy my winch. also like the ability to just take it off and store it

    ya the approach angle is very good. love being able to just take it off if needed. i was going to go with a solid mount bumper but thought of all the benefits of the multi-mount and decided to go with it

    Yes and the ability to put it on the back when needed to. Already used it for that.
