    I finally decided to retire my 87 from trail abuse and start to restore it to it's original glory. I picked up an 84 K5 last night. It's super rough but it's perfect to wheel. It currently has a four inch suspension and three inch body lift on 10 bolts and bald 35's. It has a running 350 that I need to put in. It's got a standard tranny that needs some work. The truck belongs to a friend of mine and it has a lifetime warranty on the clutch and power sterring pump which will be warrantied before the truck goes back together. For the $300 I paid for it I couldn't pass it up. /forums/images/icons/smile.gif It's time to get out the sawzall!!!
