A buddy of mine is likely becoming a K5 convert. He is a Full Size Jeep guy(had a wagoneer then a J10), hes in a 2wd 6.9L Diesel Ford F250 right now. He got stuck real bad the other night and said ok fine someone find me a 4x4 for under $1200. Just so happens theres a 78 K5, with SM465, NP205(converted by previous owner), crate 350, and 10/12 bolt combo right by my house for $950. I told him what to look out for rust wise but he says so far it looks good(hes not dumb), hes gonna go test drive it tonight. If he gets it we are puting on a 6" Rough Country all spring lift and 36s TSLs most likely. Be good by me to have another K5er around.
