    Does a company make a fiberglass body for the K5 ?
    I have a 76 K5, my dad was driving it home from work one day and decided, that he was to take on a stunt man job. He rolled my K5 at least 8 times at 65 MPH. All that is wrong with it is the body, frame is still straight, and drive train is good. at this point I want thinking about making it a Trail Rig only.I know people make fiberglass for jeep body, have not had any luck on K5 though.

    Thanks

    I checked out the ones by US Body a while back, I think they're to the tune of around 6,000 dollars by the time you get it to the door, before installation and painting it. The Bummer bodys aren't made anymore, GM sued them.

    If your going for a trail only rig, why not get a truck cab and make a flat bed. Just an idea.

    I was got to thinking about a fiberglass body. it was just an idea. I'll proberly cut up the front and back sheetmetal for a better aprach angle, on the trail. The only thing that is kepping me from driving it is a broken rear tail light. I can still safey drive it. it has no front window though.
