    very good looking truck. i too would remove the plastic piece under the bumper. supposedly they helped aerodynamics, but with the truck lifted i doubt it makes any difference.

    Very nice!

    I get all getty inside when I see a K5 fixed up and restored where you can tell the owner has some pride in it and wants it too look nice. I don't see that a whole lot anymore around here.

    I like your roll up windows, most people don't tint them but they really make the truck look better.

    thanks, the interior is pretty much stock minus a tuffy security box and new dash. Took out all the carpet and got it sprayed with rhino liner.

    I'd have to say that ranks up there with the best looking K5s of all. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    Looks good, bro! That's about the same color of my 89. Although it does not have a CK5 sticker, I did notice that it has a very important sticker above the inspection/Reg stickers.. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif.

    I know you have the soft top on it and all, but if you ever run it with a full top/rear seat, I would think about adjusting the exhaust. It really should dump out the side so that there is no danger of build up in the cab, if the rear window is down. Sorry, I have to point out those things... especially if there may be a kiddo riding in it. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    How do you like the raod manners with the swaybar gone? Also, how about the 4:56's with the 36's, how do you like the performance with those?

    VERY nice! /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    I'd swap the '60 into something else now, no way I'd bash that thing up. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
