    Yeah, I think it's cool to see members of a K5 site sell their K5's to raise money for a non-K5 /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    I was this [ ] close to selling the blazer. I mean I already have a jeep tub, cip, made a frame, have a sbc, 700r/208 spare to make a buggy with a jeep skin and 60/14 disc brake to put under it. But came to my senses, as I suspect most will do when they realize how much work/money is involved in starting something from scratch.

    Hehe... sounds familiar to me! In fact it will probably start happening in the next month or so!
    It just keeps getting harder and harder to hold the rust together enough to wheel the K5 body! And if Im gonna do anything as serious as a full body swap/ restoration anyways, I might as well put something smaller and lighter! /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif

    Well it just seems to be a natural progression most of us on this site use our k5s and some rough. Well we put on lifts and 1 ton axels and push it harder them gm had in mind. Well at some time the rust and trees ,rocks get the better of us but the k5 is still running strong so add some tube and lighten the truck and make it safer I say go for it.
    But some time we will see less k5s and more gm powered 4x4 rigs. well we can hope that gm brings back the k5 can’t we. /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    yeah, I am getting the s-10 cab real soon... but that project is going to take a year atleast... Im gonna do some serious custom stuff on the interior and get all the cool toys (high quality guages etc) so it'll take me a while to get the money and time to do it all. I figure its the last evolution of my rig (with respect to the body) so I might as well make it everything i want it to be. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Just what are some people trying to wheel over or through that a "Bobtail" won't get it? If I wanted a darn rock buggy, I would have built one, and saved my money. Seems to me once you build a rig that can climb a tree, it really isn't fun anymore. More about drivers, less about "point and shoot, and to hell with what line I should take".
