    Well, check out page 120. The great and honorable '73-'75K5. That's why I own one. On page 119 is the Kaiser/Jeep M-715 which my dad owns two.

    Okay, I want a '87 K30 w/the 454/th400,np205,etc.

    Last time they did that "top 10 4x4s" thing, they mentioned the 69-72 chevy trucks. I guess that meant K-5s to.

    So you're the one that bought them all up. Man! When I was looking for a 1 ton 4x4, I couldn't ever find one!

    Forget it, if you find a 1-ton its either 2-wheel, or completely rotted out. Still good for the axles. I can barely find any 3/4 tons around here.

    I know what you mean. I guess I am just lucky to live here in Kansas because of all the farmers. Those farmers just drive their trucks to death and then I go shopping!!! [​IMG]

    I know what you mean. I first started my collection of Petersens waaaaayyyyy back in May of 1985!!! [​IMG] I have every issue in plastic tote boxes and treasure each and every one of them!
    I also have Four Wheeler magazine back to May of 85 also.
    I got Off Road magazine about 1991 and got everyone of those since then too.
