Also will be running 38x15x15 boggers ond 15x14 wheels (already have 2 wheels and tires)so it shold shape up to be a prrety bad arse sub...jusgt a whole lot simpler and less $$$ than build the blazer and getting the suburban were i want it to be to be a tow rig...anyway here are some pics all of yall have prolly seen them but here they are agian....

    I might be buying another K5 just for Paragon. I want it done by April 1st if iI get it. I will not get to my house till the 17th. It will need a trans swap from a 700-465/205. The 205 needs to be twin sticked. Front axel needs to be swapped. Thinking I might need to swap the intake, and/or motor. Swap rear bumper. Convert a bell to hydro. And would like to paint it. It's do-able,(all without a garage).
