    Yep you've seen it on here before and wanted it greatly. Now it's 1000 miles away from it's original location. Now you can own this great legend in ck5 4x4 history. :D $8000

    lemme find the old thread....

    http://coloradok5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=114464


    I have put in a new water pump, new battery, new alternator, and new starter. I still have all the interior pieces, plus a few other pieces from other projects. However, I've come to realize the same thing John did. My 60+ hour a week job and new house just won't let me work on this thing. Plus I've got no need for a hardcore tow rig. I don't have a 4x4 and don't have one on the horizon. I've got a z71 in town I'm thinking about buying, so if you're interested, please shoot me an email.

    I would be interested in a trade + cash (on your end of course) of a 91+ chevy or dodge 4x4, samurai, or bike.

    It still looks the exact same as the other pics, minus toolbox of course.

    You have any interior pics? How well does it start on just one battery? Grid heater work?

    As im sitting here wondering if i could scrounge the rest of the cash up, im starting to think flying down and driving isnt a half bad idea, i just need to scrounge for a bit more cash........

    I think that they only use one battery in them. They are not like chevy and ford that need two.

    I know 24 valves used 2, i would think that the 12's would be the same.

    I have a freinds that has a dodge that is a 90 something (still the square body) and it only has one so I guess that the 12's used just one.

    Guys it starts fine on one battery. Cranks right off. It's something like a 1300CCA commercial...works great.
